door hitting awning bar problem

Is there anything that can be done about the door always opening too far and hitting the awning bar when the awning is out? (21ss rockwood roo). Is there an add on to the door that limits its opening?

You could install a gas strut like the GT378 motorhomes have to keep the door from opening into the passenger side slide room. It is just a simple gas strut that only allows the door to open to 90 degrees.

Either that or you can put a rubber bumper on the door at the point where it hits the bar to protect it.

Here is a link to another thread here that shows the gas strut.
