Door Rubs On Awning

When I open the door on my Rockwood 8310SS, it rubs against the awning, unless I have zero tilt on the awning (though I want minor tilt for drainage assistance). I am worried about wearing through the awning.

Suggestions anyone?

Thanks

Mine gets close but clears. I have seen a wheel you can add to the top of the door to allow it to roll along the awning.

My door side is as high as she will go. Also, while I like the idea of the wheel, wouldn't it do the same rub on the awning, maybe just a bit slower?

Thanks folks!

Maybe over the long haul it might rub the same, but a wheel will roll and the door will rub on a sharp corner. Reality is most will prob not even keep their rv long enough for the wheel to rub through..

I have found with my TT that the door will rub with the awning in the full down position. what I have done is have the side closet to the door up all the way and then only a slight angle on the other side and the door clears and the rain runs off fine.

I think you may have your awning completely extended. Retract it just enough so the flap in front hangs straight down. That should give youaddional clearance for the door,keep the flap from sticking on top of the awning and lower the stress on the awning material where it slides into the roller.
