That would be a bad assumption. It will run until the motor bogs down (open or closed). Release the button as soon as it is fully closed or stop it at the position you desire when you are opening it.
I like to have it out a foot or two during rainy nights where severe wind is not forecast so we can open the door without rain entering the camper.
If you hold it in too long you could blow the fuse. MINE is located behind the power center on a pigtail. A REAL PITA to change.
