Door support struts

The door support struts on my overhead cabinet doors are incredibly weak.
They wouldn't hold up a marshmallow
.stabiles lift o mat....silver in color.
They open to about 10 inches.
I guess I'm looking for replacements.
Don't know if they were miss sized from the get go....don't use them often.
Stabilus makes different sizes...mine aren't listed.
Any suggestions on the size or brand to get...if someone has stabilus brand can they please post the model number and if they are strong or not.

struts come in various lengths and pound ratings. If you do not find the rating then contacting Stabilus might render a match if they can crossover with the information you CAN find on the struts you have. Otherwise, you will need to order them from the coach manufacturer by vin and/or serial number of the coach.
