Screen Door Awning Saver

Hello, we have a Work and Play 18LT. While the exterior door has an awning roller, the screen door doesn't have any awning protection at all, and it does rub the awning, especially if I have one side lowered for drainage. I bought a couple of the screen door clips made by Camco, but they don't fit. Seems my screen door is too wide for them. I tried putting them in boiling water and stretching them, but didn't get anywhere. Does anybody know of another source for the screen door awning protectors? My door is just over 1/2 inch wide. Guess since it's a toy hauler, it has some non-standard doors. and probably other things. Thanks for any help or suggestions.

Go to www.campingworld.com and search for "screen door awning protector" or "awning roller." They have the roller type that should solve your problem. Oops! Thought you were referring to your outer door. Try building up a couple of layers of duct tape on the corner of your screen door. This will protect the awning from the sharp metal corner on the door. This once worked for me, back in the day.

I had to install a roller on our old trailer. The kit came with a nylon washer and screw for the screen door--intalled the washer just enough over the edge of the door to allow door closing and the awning 'rode' on that washer without damage.

Problem solved. Went to hardware store in search of a thick nylon washer, and came across a screw cover with a snap over cover. Installed this on the corner, just slightly higher than the corners of the door, and now the awning can ride on this. It was thin enough not to cause a clearance problem when the screen door shut. Cost for 2 of the covers, 68 cents plus tax. They come in different colors also.
