Door rubs awning

Hi,

We just brought our windjammer 3006 home tonight and I noticed that when the awning is out, the door rubs on it a bit. Has anyone else had this issue? Not sure im too impressed with it.

You'll need to install an awning door roller to save your awning.

As for the Awning door roller - I need to check and see what this is and if it would work for my trailer.

In the meantime you might try raising the awning a little higher on the door side. I learned to do the "open the door" check when opening up the awning.

That's pretty common, your awning is mounted at the top of the trailer and the door is pretty close, is your awning an automatic awning or manual?

If it is manual, you can raise the awning a bit higher, not sure about the automatic ones. Also, the door roller works well, either way, there is a solution that will work, not to worry about this one....

My power awning will rub if I run it all the way out. The manual states to open the awning until the flap hangs straight down. When I do this the door doesn't rub.

Just something you might try.

Campingworld or just your local hardware store ought to
have something you can use if you're a little bit handy with
a screwdriver!

My brand new trailer door rubs too. Its an auto awning. I just retract it an inch or two. That prevents the rubbing.

Mine does too, but the awning tube is bowed about two inches, the other tariler had the same awning it never rubed while out all the way, these are designed to be tilted so it will shed water if it touches when it level then it's sure to rub tilted......not right IMO.
