Overhead door struts
« on: May 17, 2018, 07:21:49 PM »

Installed gas struts to hold up the heavy wooden overhead doors above the bed in the 2016 CL21RBS.  I know other folks have been able to use lighter weight spring struts with other door types, but those did not work for me.  The 22.5lb gas struts worked great.

Nice job! We have done something similar to that was well (used pre-packaged ones that we bought at the dealer and they quickly installed them). Really helps out a lot and holds them up nicely!
