Hi, did you tension the upper awning arms and did you lock both lower arms in the forth hole?

If you tilt the awning (one side higher than the other) it sheds rainwater better.

Im surprised... most have four holes front and rear. Havent seen one with only three positions. You could always drill another hole as the rod has plenty of travel down in the tube.

The front and rear arms are not drilled the same. 4 holes in the back and 3 holes in the front would keep it level. I believe if you extend the front arm a little farther you may find that 4th hole to raise your awning 6 more inches to give the tilt to shed rain water and yet fix the problem airstream let out of the factory on your $95000 rig. Live and learn. Enjoy.

There is nothing wrong with the trailer. Someone at the dealer or whom ever sold it to you did not properly show you the ropes. There's even a proper way to roll up the awning.

I hate to modify stuff from factory but the rubbing door is going to wear awning if I do not fix. This trailer is used and I can see orignal owner just let it rub which is not cool. Thanks for any help.
ROBERTSUNRUS is correct, you have the arms in the wrong position.

I watch video on awning and after I put in new part awning works great does not hit door. I bought trailer used and previous owner either cut pole after bending it or was never right from factory it only had three notches in it and new pole has four it work good now so I am happy. Thanks for the help.

Hi, glad you found the problem and got it fixed. I think it was never right from the factory. [didn't drill last hole]
