Read what jeff64 wrote. When an awning comes out it is designed to drop down some. Don't let it get fully extended. If it works with a remote open the door half way and extend the awning and watch it. Stop it just before it hits. Simple.

Hi, I too have an 8310ss have always noticed the same issue.
The roller ball looks like a great solution.

I found it at amazon.

amazon.com/Camco-42005-Awning-Roller-Screen/dp/B00JFWKLVM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1464627386&sr=8-1&keywords=RV+Awning+Door+Roller

Although this is the best pic I have of my wheel, it was so simple to install and I don't worry about ripping the awning anymore. I put silicone under, around and on top of the base plate to make sure no water ever got into the door.

If your RV is new have them put the proper arms on. That's what I did. They changed the model mid-year and had the wrong awning arms which would not allow it to go up far enough to clear the door. You should not have to use one of those wheels on a brand new coach.

If it wasn't designed to open all the way then why do they put the flap on it. Why not use a shorter awning then. That's just a work around for a poorly installed awning and the manufacturer should be responsible for fixing it.

This is the correct way to go! Youroo!!

That's possible I guess. My door doesn't ru with the awning out,

I have same problem. previous owner did put a wheel, maybe after the damage was done. he tried to add duct tape, but is ugly. did have a tear, I went on top and added eternabond tape. works ok..
I ordered those awnbrella systems which gives an arch. only put 1 in middle of door. works great, and gives good water drainage. helps me when it is real windy. I use the de-flapper, o ends.

On my 832IKBS the awning drainage is a problem. Regardless of how much or which way i tilt the awning, water still seems to collect in a pocket just below the metal cover. I found the best position to make the best tilt and not rub the door - much of the techniques are described above. but the water still collects. I ordered 2 pairs of
88504 AWNBRELLA 2 PACK 8' from Camping World.
Hopefully they will solve both the drainage and door rub issue. I've not been able to find any recommendations other than the 1 feedback on the Camping World site. I wont be able to try them out until Sept. Does anyone have any experience with these?
