Just discovered a slight problem! I mentioned that I had installed the gas prop so the door opens just a little past 90 degrees. Today I put out the door awning for the first time since then. The door touches the door awning support arm when fully open! It's just barely touching it, so I don't think I will try to re-locate the door bracket, but just wanted to give you a heads-up so you don't make the same mistake!

I'll be sure to have the awning out when I get to it. Thanks for the heads up!

Nice clean job Joe. Up here in Michigan in would of put a bungi cord around it to hold it open. Cheaper also. Although, yours does look more professional.

A small little rubber bumper on the inside of the awning arm will take care of that.

Great idea Adam! Sounds much simpler than re-locating that door bracket!

I had an awning like that on my 96 Monaco, you can adjust that by sliding the fabric from one side to the other slightly to move it away from the door then put a screw in the roller to hold it there ...

What about gluing a little round magnet on the door and on the awning? It would help keep the door open, yet wouldn't make the door hard to close.

ANOTHER UPDATE- After using the gas prop for a while, I think if I had it to do over I would use a 10 lb. prop instead of the 15 lb. It's just a little harder to close the door than I would like, especially when entering the MH and pulling the door closed when I'm on the inside steps. I can't say for sure that the 10 lb. prop would hold the door open with a strong wind pushing against it. Maybe someone who is going to do this mod could try it and let us know!

I just installed a gas prop on my Knight. I left the scissor arm in place as it wasn't in the way of anything and will serve as a backup stop.

Great idea, Thanks Joe!

I thought about that, but just didn't like to looks of that scissors arm!

Is the length of these props measured when they are extended or compressed?

What I've done for other things that contact/rub is put a short strip of Velcro (the fuzzy piece) on one of the surfaces.
