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 Doors - 372-5000-20

Today we're going to take a look at the JR Products 10 inch long gas shock. Now this gas shock is designed to replace a worn or damaged shock on your RV entry door or storage doors. The extended length, which will be measured from the center of this ball socket to the center of this ball socket is going to measure right at 10 inches. Now the compressed length, if we would compress this all the way then measure it, it would be 6.41 inches. The output force on the shock is 20 pounds, and the connection type on both ends is a retaining clip on a 10 millimeter ball socket.I want to zoom in just to show you the detail on this, but basically what you would do is there's your 10 millimeter ball socket. It's designed to fit onto a 10 millimeter ball, so to install it, what you'd want to do is you notice the retaining clip on the top, you just slide a flat tip screwdriver under that retaining clip, pry up on it to release it, and that'll release the pressure on the socket and then you'll be able to push this onto the 10 millimeter ball.

And then once it's on, push this clip all the way back down and that'll secure it in place. So it is a very easy, simple installation. The shock also has a nice black nitride finish to it.But that should do it for the review on the JR Products 10 inch long gas shock..

Replacement for Malibu Ski Boat glove box. Pleasant order experience and fast delivery.

As always exactly what I order and very fast ship time

Thank you

The selection process was easy to follow. I needed gas struts with a greater lift capacity for our under bed storage due to the addition of a memory foam mattress. I was able to select a strut pair with the proper length and extension from the website. The struts were received quickly and were exactly what I needed. The bed now raises gently and remains elevated.



by:

When my package arrived it was beat up and one of the clips on the end of the shock was missing,not what I would give a good report !!



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:

Product was damaged and not received, but etrailer stepped up and sent another gas prop. More companies should have these work ethic’s. Good job



by:

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:

Product is installed but instructions were a bit vague and difficult to implement(related to the removal of previous gas shock bar).



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:

product works well, shipping took a little longer than I expected



by:

Very fast delivery! I've ordered from e-trailer several times and service has always been great!



by:

Thanks, now my tool box won't cut my arm off.



by:

These work great for toolbox lid



by:

The head that attached to the bottom door jamb was way to huge couldn't close the door I was able to switch the one from the old strut the thread size not the same I had to force it on most likely will pull off I ordered the 30 pound for my fifth wheel door if people ask the 20 pound model is the correct size but I chose the 30 pound my mistake



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:

I wish it had a little more resistance when opening the door. The reason I had to replace the original was that the wind pushed the door open so hard that the plastic end broke. Afraid the same could happen with this one.



by:

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



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:

This company is excellent always willing to help with questions and always have items in stock. Shipping right on time and fair prices. Hats off for a company that stills has customers interest their top priority.
Thank you



by:

Part fit perfectly and was very easy to install. The 90# of force is more than the original shock had but the heavy entry door is now much easier to open and will NOT blow closed.



by:

Works great haven't had any problems with it, would buy again if I ever needed it



by:

Exactly what I needed delivered in a timely manner
