Gas springs, CC compartment doors

I'm planning to install gas springs on a compartment door on my existing rig and am curious if any of my former CC colleagues could tell me which strength struts CC had on the medium size doors.

I want to say most of the exterior doors on my Allure were either 40 or 60 pound SPD gas springs.

I would not go less than 120. I have some 100's and they are a little weak.

Replacement bay door lift support springs

The replacement lift supports for the Allure bay doors is # se263p60-w These are available from Lift Supports Depot.com priced at $21.00 each.

The Allure requires 2 lift supports per door, they are 60 lb lift capacity each.

Keep in mind that the Allure doors are made of aluminium and use 2 supports per door and the Intrigue doors are made of fiberglass and I think use one support per door but at a higher lb. rating capacity.

Hope this helps

I would stick with the original # rating for each door. Using a stronger lift will put additional stress on the attach points. I made that mistake and have since had to rebuild each and every hinge attach point as a result.
