Razor sharp screen door corner

Help. Can't believe they leave these doors this way and sell them !!!!!!! Our screen door point is unbeknownst to us razor sharp. One family member already spent an afternoon in the ER getting stitches from it. We have a 2016 Rockwood 2703WS. Should we file it? Looking for suggestions. Still can't believe it's this way. Very scary. Thanks everyone for suggestions. We need to do somthing.

Pics? Sounds like you simply need to file it smooth.

I need to take a file to mine, too. Or, some sort of plastic/rubber bumper might work.

I'd take a pic, but TT is at our lake site and we are home. The sharp corner is the inside point under the screen door / from inside the TT it would be the on the right bottom point. Both doors were closed. A/c was on. A fam member was sitting on bottom of camper steps. The door was barely pushed open and caught them on the back. Very deep cut. Stitches. Tetanus shot. And 3 weeks to heal. Can't begin to imagine the damage that would have been done if the door had been pushed open harder. It's the first thing we are taking care of when we go to the lake. I bought a file. And may stop at lowes or Home Depot to see if they have anything to cover the corner.

If both doors were closed & he/she were sitting on the outside step then they were most likely hit by the bottom corner of the outside door, not the screen door? If so, yes, it is a sharp aluminum corner piece. I poked my head & scratched my back all in one week just bending over to pick something up while it was open.

Good idea to file it....I think I'll do mine tomorrow.

I've got the same thing on my SOB TT. If it's a Lippert door they are probably all like that. I feared our dogs would impale themselves on it in their zest to go inside. I ground it round there, about the diameter of a nickel.

A simple bastard file is all that is needed. Should do all 4 corners. Should take all of 5-10 minutes even if you are slow.

I'm a retired auto tech. I still have all my tools, a stupidly big tool box and all the trappings, an air compressor in the garage, and all that. I should have a garage sale!!!! Anyway, I used an air powered for grinder to do it. If you have a Dremel Tool, it can get the job done quite nicely.
