When replacing gas shock on your vehicle or RV, you will want to make sure you are buying a replacement with the exact same extended length, compressed length, and pounds of force. This information is usually printed on the shock. Lengths are measured from the center of the ball joint used for mounting. If you are planning on installing gas shocks on something for the first time, identifying the shock you need requires fairly complex initial calculations, so be sure to do your research to avoid purchasing a shock that will not fit your application.

Video Transcript for JR Products Gas Shock Review

Hey everybody, Ryan here at etrailer. Today we're gonna be checking out the line of JR products replacement gas shocks. When it comes to these gas shocks, you know there aren't a lot of different things whether it be RVs, campers, boats. I'm sure a lot of people are, are really familiar with these on their, on their passenger cars. You know, you go to open the trunk or your hatch and it wants to drop back down on you because over time these things just wear out, they start to lose pressure and it's super annoying because you know, any application that these are used on it's designed to keep something open so you can get in there and not bonk your head on it and or have to prop it up and make due. And, you know, over time personally you just kind of get sick of having to deal with it, and by changing these things out it's gonna solve that problem and make life a little bit easier on you.

And just a perfect example of that today. So the owner of the RV here has battery disconnect switch and other maintenance items are underneath I guess you'd call it the hood, and one of these shocks is wore out and so it only holds this open about halfway so it's either crawling underneath here or hold this up above your head and then that takes away one hand while you're trying to turn your battery disconnect off or do whatever it is you're trying to do. So by getting this replaced, it should hold this up completely and work the way it's designed to. So if you are looking to replace your gas shock you're gonna need to know which one's gonna work with with your particular application, right And so there's a few things that you can do because there's a bunch of different sizes, lengths, styles of ends, how much pressure these are designed to hold and so on. And so you can, you can do a couple of things to make sure you get the right one.

That's probably one of the most difficult things to figure out, you know, you get to looking around and there's a hundred different ones. Well, which one do you need So one of the things you can do is measure the overall length of it. And you wanna measure it, you know your old one and the extended fully extended position. And you wanna go from the center of the attachment point to the center of the attachment point. And then you take that same measurement by fully compressing it.

And that's one of 'em. And you also wanna pay attention to the type of ends. So this end, at least from my experience is the most common. And a lot of people probably have a set up like that one there, but you know, every every application's a little different. There's a couple other styles too that are similar but definitely different, so pay attention to that.

And then you need to know, all right how much pressure is this designed to hold up Because if you have something relatively heavy like this and you put a weak shock on it even though it's the right length and everything else it's not gonna hold it up, right. And so a lot of times, if you're not sure of that a lot of times if you look at your old one, it'll have, it'll say that specification on there. If it doesn't, chances are pretty good too there will be some type of information or part number something along those lines that you can cross reference and search to find that that pressure rating. The shocks are going to have a what they call a black nitride finish. Feels good, feels nice and and well built. Actually has, actually has some weight to it. So hopefully it'll hold up for, for quite some time. And in terms of getting these in place usually they're not too bad. You know, keep in mind though every application's gonna be a little bit different. We'll actually go through and and change this one out together on here. But keep in mind, like I said everyone will be a little bit different. So you can just use this as more of a reference or a guide and, and hopefully this information will kind of get you going in the right direction on how to change yours. First things first, we need to remove the old shock. Whatever you're working with, get it in the open so you can actually access everything and keep in mind too, if you only have one shock or they're both really bad, obviously, you know when you undo this it could potentially close whatever it is you're working on. So if you need to support it, have a friend help you there's just something to think about. But at the ends, there's going to be a metal strap I guess you could call it and there will be an opening there where we can take a flathead screwdriver, and but this being the old one, I'm just gonna pull this completely off. So that'll just pop off. And then you want to grab the end and undo it and to get it completely removed I'm gonna do that same exact process for the other end of our shock. It'll work this other piece off the back and get our shock outta the way. Our new shock the one end I just put snap right back on. That's how it works too, you don't have to even mess with the metal strap. You're just gonna line it up with the ball and once it's lined up it just kind of clicks into place. Sometimes this can be difficult especially these are pretty high pressure. And so I'm gonna lift this up as high as I can to get it relatively close. And then I'm going to push down on the shock until it lines up and then I'll snap it in the place there. So with that snapped in now our door was staying completely open. There's some good resistance when it goes down. It holds nice and tight, especially once you lock these and it feels good so. Open this up and just like that we're in good shape again. And that'll finish up our look at of the JR products replacement gas shocks..

This strut did not fit precisely due to the thickness of the end connectors. They are thicker than the original strut and since the strut has to fit between the bottom of the door and the threshold in the closed position it would not allow the door to close. I found that by exchanging the end connectors with the original strut I was able to install the strut and close the door. The only problem with this solution is that the new strut with the old connectors is slightly longer than the old strut/connector assembly and now allows the door to open slightly farther than before. Our awning arm just barely clears the door when opening and closing so will have to be very careful from now on when extending and retracting the awning. Our motorhome is a Sunseeker 3010ds model in case this is helpful to others ordering this product.



by:

Item was exactly as advertised, easy installation, fits perfectly on our RV door. Our previous gas shock was worn out & would not hold the door open. This product is sturdy & stable. It fixed the issue.



by:

Exactly what I needed for my Kwik Kamp motorcycle trailer! It's nice to share information in our group when we find parts to use for our discontinued campers.



by:

This fit my 05 Bigfoot 9.6 camper door with about 3/8 compression left. This is the shock you want. It has a slow open feature and does not slam the door open possibly risking tearing the mounts off. So no worries about people who just open the door and head out. We used to have to coax the door open. Not you can let go of it. Love this shock!!



by:

The Stabilus shock holding the 22" door of our bumper pull trailer open was weak. Mild wind would push it shut. This shock fit right onto the existing ball joints. A small blade screwdriver pried the "c" clip back, allowing me to slip the socket over the ball, and the clip snapped into place. Maybe 30 seconds and the shock was installed.

The biggest challenge was determining what force I needed in the replacement. The existing shock had the model information scraped away where it rubbed on the door threshold. No where could I find on the etrailer site what force a small door shock should be. I ended up chatting with an RV service tech I know, who looked it up in his parts catalog. Turns out 10 lb force is standard except for large RV doors. I would suggest etrailer.com add this information on their online catalog. Maybe it's there and I couldn’t' find it? "Gas shock force needed for RV doors."



by:

Price is right and product fit and functioned well for my application on a Leer truck topper rear glass door



by:

Overall, I was satisfied with the process as well as as quality and condition of the door opener. I was fortunate that the opener fit correctly. There was some dissatisfaction that your web site offered little in the way of cross-reference data for a direct replacement with the existing opener on my trailer. Also, considering that the item was in stock, delivery took longer than I had anticipated.



by:

Just received and put on today. The gas shocks vey easy to replace. Doors on rv are open and staying open by the shocks. When the other door shock need replacement. I will be buying same product.



by:

Great customer service and prompt delivery.
I haven't installed them yet but look to be the exact replacement part for the current ones in my camper.



by:

We use these on our tool boxes and they work great.



by:

These shocks made my RV cabinet door stay up like new again!



by:

Great staff and knowledgeable about evey product I’ve purchased



by:

It was just what l needed to hold up bed storage work great



by:

Didn't work, until I realized the post couplings would screw off the OEM and screw on this new unit. Door wouldn't shut until I changed out this hardware. Now it is perfect! The couplings that come with the unit were too large for my door. All good now, perfect fit. 2020 Thor Citation 24ST.



by:

It didn't fit the camper door swivel pin properly. Head of hinge too big so door wouldn't shut. Went back to Lakota Horse trailer and ordered the part. I don't believe you had stock that would have worked. Thanks for asking.



by:

Worked as advertised. Easy installation. Used on an under-bed storage box in my RV.



by:

Placed my order on a Monday and received it on Wednesday. Live chat helped me find the correct Gas Shock. It was a perfect match!!



by:

As described



by:

Nice product



by:

Exactly what I was looking for. A perfect replacement for the one that wore out.



by:

Installed and working better than new. Fast shipping and fantastic communication through the whole delivery process for such a small order. Will definitely be my go to in the future
