When you state longer struts, don't they compress only soo far? Any measurements when compressed or extended? Strut number? That sure would be nice if it worked for me. Thanks.

My propane door only opened to horizontal. By removing the frame bracket and realigning the bottom screw and hole in the top hole and drilling a hole for the top screw the door now opens as far as all the rest. Only an inch or so in the frame but the door moved about 30 degrees.

to jbfus; the new strut that works for me is 25". the factory strut is 20"
there really is no number that I could locate that would apply. take your tape with you to the parts store to get the length and some how get the clerk to look up the pounds of the strut. I discovered that you only need one strut at or around 60#

I noticed a drill in the photo. Did you have to relocate the pivot points? Or was it a fit with no altercations? Would be nice. As of now, I do not have enough of the knee pads!! I will try something of this sort. Thanks

jbfus----I WOULD SUGGEST that you measure the factory strut then add at least 3 inches for the new one and get someone to hold the door while you measure for your new struts. yes the drill you saw was for drilling new holes where needed. don't forget to get struts that are under 70 pounds.d
