I just don't like the way they look (I know- picky, picky).

If you have a square corner on the door, you might try cutting a radius on the very corner.

If he has awning poles, when you snug down the ratchet straps, it will pull the awning out to full deployment.

Somebody needs to keep an eye on me; I'll be counting on you.
I think part of my problem is that awning has metal (aluminum) cover when rolled up. But when rolled out it rests on the awning about a foot out from the edge of the TT, putting pressure on awning. Gonna think about it a little more before I go with the dreaded roller.
Thanks again for all the replies

my thoughts were, if the awning were one without side arms, by shimming the bottom of the case outward 1/16", you would prolly raise the extended awning a couple inches...

You were spot on. Rolled awning back in just a very little bit & it gave me about 1 1/2 inches of clearance. No roller & I don't need to cut the door off. I do appreciate all of your suggestions, much thanks.

If you have awning poles, you can just lift the tube up a little and then stake it down.

Only stop in the shade! I don't have this problem but am trying to figure out why a manufacturer or dealer would do this?
