JR Products gas shock replaces 1 worn or damaged shock on your RV entry door or storage doors. Durable black-nitride finished gas shock measures 11.41" compressed, 20" extended, and has 20 lbs of force.


Features:

  • Gas shock replaces worn or damaged shock on your RV entry door or storage doors
  • Ball-and-socket installation
    • Attaches to 10-mm ball studs

  • Connection type: 10-mm ball socket

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.

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:

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



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 !!

Oh my goodness, I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you. We can have it replaced.



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.

The opener is working great! The only drawback may be that the force factor may be a little on the strong side. A great product though, and I would recommend it.



by:

Fast delivery, Thanks



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:

Nice product



by:

Easy installation and works great!



by:

Works perfect and got it fast ! Thank y ou



by:

The ball connector was too thick under my RV door so I had to reuse my old rusty one



by:

Couldn't get the exact part I needed thru Amazon due to us being full timers and moving weekly. This part worked but I had to swap the connection off one end of my old strut onto this one so it would fit under the door.



by:

I was extremely happy with my experience with eTrailer, especially the customer service. I had to return my first order because of my own mistake and while it did take a while to get someone on the phone, they were extremely helpful. Both orders arrived sooner than expected. The gas springs were for a engine hatch on a boat. It took like 5 minutes to install them and they are working like a charm. If you have a heavier hatch you might consider stiffer springs than the 20 lb ones. I would definitely order from this company again.



by:

Again good quality ! Thanks Ashley



by:

Was good product just what I was looking for



by:

I received my gas struts today and unfortunately one of them slipped out of the box during shipping. I spoke with Ashley and explained what had happened and she asked if I wanted a refund or she would reship another gas shock.
I’ve purchased these gas shocks before and I know they’re well
made but more importantly I was extremely pleased with the customer service that I received. Thank You again to Ashley for handling my problem in a professional and courteous manner. I will be back to etrailer for my RV needs.



by:

My first order came incomplete. The company sent me out the missing piece immediately and followed up with the second order to ensure I received it.



by:

Great service. Part showed up in just a few days.



by:

Opening speed could be a little slower.



by:

Quick shipping and arrived in great shape. Easy company to deal with.



by:

Great product. After searching several shops locally with no luck, I was able to get these from Etrailer for my trailer doors. Great product and quick service.



by:

THe snap on ends were larger than the original shock and wouldnt allow door to close. I removed ends from old unit and attached on new and all good now.



by:

I spoke with a young lady and was unsure exactly the part I needed. She was very helpful in identifying the item for me to order. Received it quickly and installation was simple for a nice change. Thank you etrailer



by:

Item as described. Quick delivery



by:

Very helpful and very kind to help me find the part that I needed I would highly recommend this



by:

Perfect fit. Quick delivery. Reasonable price. Trifecta!

  • 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.

  • Replacement RV Door Gas Shock Recommendation
    For an RV Entry door gas shock the Gas Shock # 372-5300-20 with 20 lbs of force should be sufficient to make opening and closing your door fairly easy. Since the stickers on your shock don't have the lbs of force listed I recommend going with this and then if you end up needing something with more strength down the road you can go that route - it will be much better to have a little less power than a little more power. Worst case scenario you can try to find a sticker for the door manufacturer...

  • How Can I Determine Which Gas Strut I Have?
    The weight rating on your gas strut # 372-5300-20 would normally be printed in LBS or NM somewhere on the strut however since your strut's labels have worn off then your best bet is to measure for a new one. In general, the length to choose for gas struts is about 55% of the height of the hatch or door you are trying to keep open. So, if you have a door that is 1000mm (39") in height a 550mm (19.7") long gas strut would be about right. Basically, you'd take half the door height plus a...

  • What is Diameter of JR Products Gas Shock # 372-5300-20 Cylinder and Rod
    The JR Products Gas Shock # 372-5300-20 has a cylinder diameter of 15 mm and a rod diameter of 6 mm.

  • Replacement For 15 lb 20 Inch Extended Gas Shock
    From what I could find it looks like that gas strut you have is rated for 15 lbs and measures 12" when compressed and 20" when extended. For that the closest option we have is the Gas Shock - 20 lb Force - 20" Extended, 11.41" Compressed # 372-5300-20. This fits on a 10-mm ball socket like your current shock does. If this is part of a set then I do recommend replacing both so that everything runs evenly.

  • How To Find Correct Replacement Gas Shock for Outdoor Kitchen on Trailer
    The best way to find the correct replacement shock for your outdoor kitchen is by measuring and noting the capacity. The Gas Shock part # 372-5300-20 for example measures 20" extended and 11.41" compressed with a 20 lb force. I have attached our full list below. Unfortunately, we have no way to look up parts like this for any one specific trailer.

  • What Info is Needed to Pick Out Replacement Gas Shock for Camper
    Hey Richard, to pick out a replacement gas shock I'd need to know the compressed and extended length you need as well as the weight of the door. For example, the part # 372-5300-20 has 20 lb of force and has an extended length of 20 inches and a compressed length of 11.41 inches.

  • Recommended Replacement Struts for Storage Compartments
    Unless the force is specifically listed on your current strut, it is unlikely that you will be able to find the exact pressure. There is no standard for the numbers printed on them. For storage compartments, I would recommend a strut with 10-20 lbs of force like the Gas Shock - 10 lb Force - 20" Extended, 11.41" Compressed - Black Nitride # 372-5300-10 or Gas Shock - 20 lb Force # 372-5300-20. You will want to measure the length in order to find the right size. I have attached two different...

  • How To Install a Gas Shock/Strut On a RV Door That Never Had One
    A Gas Shock # 372-5300-20 is attached to your door and frame with Mounting Brackets # 372BR-1015. To position the mounting brackets correctly you will need to consider the shock dimensions along with the size of the door. This shock is 11.41" compressed and 20" extended and those measurements are from center of attachment point to center of attachment point. I find it best to temporarily position the mounting brackets with a double sided tape or painters tape to more easily be able to ensure...

  • Replacement Gas Shock For RV Door
    The closest we have is Gas Shock # 372-5300-20 which requires 20lbs of force and measures 20" extended and 11.4" compressed. If this doesn't work, you can install new brackets # 372BR-1020 or # 372BR-12552 which have the 10mm ball for the gas shock. This way you can rearrange the brackets on your RV door to make it work with a different sized shock.

  • Gas Shock Recommendation for Folding RV Storage Bed
    I believe what you're looking for is something like a gas shock, like the 20 lb Force JR Products # 372-5300-20. To mount this shock you'll need a set of brackets with the 10 mm ball socket. You can use part # 372BR-1015 for an angled bracket or part # 372BR-1020 for a flat bracket. If you were referring to something else please let me know and I can see if it's something that we carry. We do have a variety of gas shocks when it comes to weight capacity so if you need something more or...

  • Need Help Replacing Gas Struts on Camper Powered Awning
    I can help you get your awning back in working order but it's going to involved switching out your entire support arms with the Solera Universal kit which comes in Black # LC434727 or White # LC434728 and measures 69" tall (the rail that is installed to the side of your trailer) or the short arm assembly which comes in Black # LC404523 or White # LC97UD (you'll need 2 of these). As far as the small gas struts go, we do have some replacement gas shocks/struts but the ones we carry are like...
