How do I replace an RV basement door?

I am trying to get my father in law's 99 Harney Renegade ready to sell and I am having trouble getting the right rear basement door to stay attached. The gas spring was missing but when I tried to assemble it I could get the door into the J-track ok and it would shut and latch but when I tried to raise it high enough to replace the top of the strut it kept falling out. Is there a retainer or some other part that holds the door in the hinge track? A picture or part number would be helpful.

Thanks!

Sounds like you strut is to long raising the door to high so it comes off.

Thanks. I had measured a strut on another door and got that length (23"). Your suggestion of a shorter strut prompted me to try a 17" and that worked just fine. Thanks again.

Look up in the attaching rail on a door that works correctly and you will see a couple of nylon wedges. They prevent the door from coming out of the track. You may be missing those on your trouble door.
