Door rubs awning

Have an auto extend/retract awning & the entry door rubs the awning (slightly) when opened. Not an immediate problem, but after a longer period of time may wear a spot on the awning. Anybody else experience this & if so what was your fix. Do not want to put a roller on door if there is another way to fix. Any info appreciated.
THANKS

Had this problem with our previous trailer. We put a roller on the door.

Sorry, I don't know of any other solution.

I shortened the distance of the stopper on the bottom of the door so that it would not allow the door to swing open so far. To do that I had to move the screwed on bracket on the door bottom and moved it forward slightly. This way the door opened to the stop which was not yet at 90 degrees... did not yet hit the awning, yet still allowed easy in and out.

No roller? Raise the whole awning assembly or cut the door off. Your only 3 choices.

Question, what's the big objection to a roller on the door?

rollers do eventually wear canvas...

Thanks much for the replies. It barely touches, but I know it will eventually cause wear. I guess it's a roller.

What is the case? If you are referring to the roller, just how do you do that?
