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 - 372-5300-30

Today, we're going to take a look at the JR Products 20-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 on this, which is measured from the center of this ball socket to the center of this one, is 20 inches. And I'll just show you, we'll put a tape measure on that, center to center, and there's your 20-inch measurement. The compressed length, if this was compressed all the way, would be 11.41 inches. The output force on this shock is 30 pounds and the connection type is a retaining clip on a 10-millimeter ball socket.I just want to zoom in to show you how that would install, but on this connection, if you'll notice, here's your 10-millimeter ball socket, and on top of it is the retaining clip.

So, what you would do is take a flat tip screwdriver and slide it up under that retaining clip, pry it open to release it, and then that'll snap right onto your 10-millimeter ball. Once it's on the ball, you just push that clip back down and it'll secure it in place. So, very simple installation.Also, the finish on this shock is a nice black nitride finish, but that should do it for the review on the JR Products 20-inch long gas shock..

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:

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.

You had exactly what I needed for a 78 ft. Hatteras Yacht that is being sold this week! I ordered parts late Friday & they arrived as promised & got them installed today! You people ROCK!



by:

Still going strong



by:

Shipped and arrived quickly, worked perfectly for my camp trailer galley door. Instructions for installation were really sparse, perhaps due to multiple applications of this product. Wished they came pre packaged with mounts instead of purchasing separately.



by:

Exactly what I expected. Fast delivery

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:

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:

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:

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

See what our Experts say about this JR Products RV Door Parts

  • How is the Weight Rating for the JR Products Gas Shocks # 372-5300-30 Rated
    Each of these gas shocks are rated for use individually and not in pairs so the part # 372-5300-30 with it's 30 lbs rating would be how much it could lift by itself. So a pair of these would cover your 60 lb trunk lid. Now with that said your easiest replacement solution would probably be to find a car parts shop that can order you in the exact shock you'd need.
