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

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.

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:

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:

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.

Thanks for helping me with the return and recording the right product.

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.

Had to modify my rv door a bit but it w orked.

Review from a similar JR Gas Shocks in RV Door Parts


Great fast delivery and your description and how to videos are the best for the DIY people. The 30 lb gas shock was for a replacement on my RV entry door. It had a 20 lb force shock but when the door was open and if the wind was blowing hard it would blow the door half way shut and then the door would slam back open which then would pull hard on the mount bracket and eventually it would pull the rivets out that was holding it on.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...
