Some more gas struts/shocks for the compartment doors. Seems like 2-3 fail every year. I should be close to replacing them all, and then I can start over again.

They must have put cheap struts on your motorhome. I have a 1998 Pace Arrow and it has never had a strut fail. Nearly 70,000 miles and no failures. Maybe someone is looking out for me.

New crimpers from Amazon. I couldn't turn them down after seeing the questions. I like D. Jones' answer the best...

If you would post the manufacturers name off of your struts I would appreciate it. Thanks

Replaced the pleated shades and the front window drapes. The double roller manual day/night shades are from AutoMotion ordered through Bradd and Hall. The front window drapes are from Untied Shade. They came with new track, roller hangers and snap strap for storage when traveling.

Spritz, if your referring to compartment door struts/springs ebay can be a good source. Bought my last one at the local RV dealer because the price + shipping would have been about the same as ebay without the wait for delivery. My 15" 90# was $17.95 and tax. I'm pretty sure you could use smaller struts for your application which would be cheaper. Good luck.

Camping World has some retrofit kits. The kits come with an enlarged bracket for the cabinet door.
