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.

Today, we're going to take a look at the JR products 14-1/2 inch long gas shock. Now this is a quick and easy replacement for any worn or broken gas shock you may have. This will replace a gas shock on multiple applications like your RV or trailer doors, storage compartment doors, truck bed covers, or even fold down camper beds. This shock is designed with the high quality black-nitride shaft and includes plastic ends on each end with locking clips to secure it to the mounting ball.The connection tight for this is a 10 millimeter ball socket that this will install on. And this does install very easily in minutes. There's no special tools required.

All you really need is a small flathead or flat tip screwdriver to install it. So I want to zoom in just to show you what you want to do on the old shock to remove it.You'll take your flat tip screwdriver, pop it under that clip. Raise that clip enough to where it'll release the pressure and you can pop it off the ball and do the same on this end. And then to put the new one back on. Again, you'll just raise that clip enough.

You don't have to remove it from the shock. You just raise it up enough. So it releases the pressure. Do it on that end. Push it over the ball, push that clip back down, and it's all secured and ready to go.Very simple installation.

Now, when you do install this, you do want this inner rod portion, this portion right here, facing down. And it's also recommended to replace these gas shocks in pairs. A few dimensions on this. The extended length, which is measured from the center of the socket to the center of this socket, is going to be right at 14-1/2 inches. The compress length, in other words when this would be fully compressed would be 8.91 inches.

And the output for on the shock is 35 pounds. But that should do it for the review on the JR products 14-1/2 inch long gas shock.

Solid built and quality 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."


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.


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.

After a year these are are working great.

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.

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


It didn't fit the camper door swivel pin properly. Head of hinge too big so door wouldn't shut. Went back to Lakota Horse trailer and ordered the part. I don't believe you had stock that would have worked. Thanks for asking.


We use these on our tool boxes and they work great.


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


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!!


Worked as advertised. Easy installation. Used on an under-bed storage box in my RV.


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.


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.


The product you sent does not comply with the listed specifications; that is, the extended length is 18.5", not 18", and the compressed length is not 11.5"; rather, the length is 12". Bottom line: when installed my door will not close.

I am sorry that this is not working for you. I have gotten in contact with our dimensions team and they have confirmed that the dimensions are supposed to be measuring center on center of the mounting points, the expanded length is 18 inches and the compressed length is 11.5 inches. If you were to measure this not from center to center, the overall length not from center on center was 19 inches and the compressed was 12.5 inches. We are currently working on getting a diagram of the exact measurements on the website for future customer convenience.

Exactly what I was looking for. A perfect replacement for the one that wore out.


Whole process went smoothly. I would not hesitate to use etrailer again in the fiture

Everything fit perfectly and will buy again.
David - 04/23/2023


Perfect fit, quality, and function.

Everything I have purchased from e trailer is very good quality. After a year of use this gas shock works like new.
John - 08/14/2023


it was the perfect fit and the pressure was great so it does not throw open the door too fast.

still going strong. working as intended
Charles - 07/12/2023


Easy installation and works great!


Wonderful service and QUICK standard sh ipping.


I don't know that the item is excellent. The gas shock has a simple job and I assume that it will do it. (haven't installed it yet) I've been very happy with etrailer in the past, and I assume that will continue. So, the item itself gets 3 stars (average). etrailer gets 5 stars (excellent). :-)


Installed and working better than new. Fast shipping and fantastic communication through the whole delivery process for such a small order. Will definitely be my go to in the future
