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 Review of JR Products RV Door Parts - Gas Shock - 372-2300-150

Jeff: Hello everybody. This is Jeff at Today we're going to take a look at this JR Products 20" long gas shock. Now this is a nice, quick and easy replacement for any worn or broken gas shock that you might have. This will replace a gas shock on multiple applications, like on your RV or trailer doors, storage compartment doors, truck bed covers, or even fold down camper beds. This shock is designed with a nice high quality black nitride shaft and includes the plastic ends on each end with the locking clips to secure it to the mounting ball.

This is designed to connect to a 10mm size mounting ball, and it installs easily in minutes, no special tools required. Wanted to zoom in just to show you the ends. You can see there's where the ball sock will slip onto the ball. And on top is this clip.The way you install it, what you'll do is take a little small tip screwdriver, slide it under this clip, and then just pry that clip up. You don't have to remove the clip all the way, just pry it up enough to relieve the pressure, and then install that over your 10mm ball.

Once it's over the ball, then just push that clip all the way back down. It'll clip into place, and it secures that end to the ball. And you'll do the same on the other end. It's the same way. Now, when you do install this, you do want the inner rod right here facing down, and it's also recommended to replace these gas shocks in pairs.

Now the extended length, which would be measured from the center of this ball hole to the center of this one, on this one center to center is right at 20". The compressed length, if it's all the way compressed would be 11.41". And the output force on the shock is 150 pounds. But that should do it for the review on the JR Products 20" long gas shock.

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


Great staff and knowledgeable about evey product I’ve purchased


The part I ordered arrived quickly. Packaging was excellent. I have not installed the part yet, but I believe it will perform as expected.



Working great after a year of operation! Easy installation!


It's the correct size and shape, but it will not collapse. I emailed earlier and got no response.


Very helpful and professional.


I was able to use one of these 150lb shocks to replace two 60lb shocks on my motorhome bay doors.


They came on time as stated. The product look good but I haven't had time to install them yet.


The shocks arrived quickly and are very good quality



Still going strong!


Bought this as a replacement for our boat's engine compartment lid. Before it was difficult to lift, now it is much easier. This was an exact fit and easy to install.


Product shipped in a timely manner and works just great! Would recommend etrailer and would use them again.


Just as described.


Accurate description & fast delivery


Great shocks. Just as i expected.







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.


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.


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.


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!!


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 add this information on their online catalog. Maybe it's there and I couldn’t' find it? "Gas shock force needed for RV doors."


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


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.

  • 20 Inch RV Gas Shocks With at Least 100 lbs of Force
    Since you mentioned 80 lb shocks being inadequate, I'll go ahead and give you gas shocks with at least 100 lbs of force that are 20 inches long. I don't have any way of knowing what mounting hardware you have, but I can tell you each of these shocks attach to 10mm ball sockets. - 150 lb Force: Gas Shock # 372-2300-150 - 120 lb Force: Gas Shock # 372-2300-120 - 110 lb Force: Gas Shock # 372-7903

  • Recommended RV Entry Door Gas Strut For A Thor Class C Motorhome
    A typical RV entry door gas strut ranges from 10-20lbs in pressure. We carry both a 10lbs # 372-5300-10 and 20lbs # 372-5300-20 that you can use. Really it just comes down to preference and the climate. If you're in a windy climate going heavier will help prevent the door from flying open/closed in the wind.

  • Recommended Gas Struts and Mounting Brackets for a Custom Tailgate On a 1991 Jeep Wrangler
    With the DeeZee Tailgate Assist Custom Tailgate-Lowering System for Classic Chevy Silverado / GMC Sierra # DZ43100 being custom fit for certain YMM vehicles, I'd actually recommend using a standard gas strut # 372-2300-150 instead. This shock has a compression force of 150 lbs, an extended length of 20", and a compressed length of 11.41". This strut uses a standard 10mm ball socket to connect, so if you don't have any the Gas Shock Mounting Brackets # 372BR-12553 is what you'll need.

  • Solution for Replacement Strut for Carefree Awning
    Everything I can find on that part number indicates it is from a Carefree awning. We only have replacement struts for Lippert awnings which are # LC260282 and # LC280343. I would try checking with Carefree to see if a replacement is available. If not, you could replace the arms with the Solera Hybrid Universal Arms # LC434727 which are compatible with the Carefree Spirit, Fiesta, Simplicity, Traveler, and Eclipse.
