Entrance door brace

This is something that has "bugged" me ever since I purchased the Jayco. The entrance door does not swing all the way around to a 180 degrees allowing it to be attached to the RV side. Instead, it only opens up 90 degrees and flaps in any kind of wind. Sometimes the wind actually shuts the door and other times, the wind blows it the other way and I think it's going to break the hinges. Well...no more. I positioned one adjustable flag pole holder to the RV side and another one on the door. Then added a 34" CPVC pipe to connect the two and the door is now SOLID.
There are two issues, however. First, I have to remove my "invention" before opening or closing the awning and secondly, the one flag pole bracket is in the way of the folding door handle. No problem though, I just flip it the opposite way.
