Entry Door Gas Spring Rod

I need the number and pressure of the rod that is mounted at the bottom of the door on a 2001 Tradewinds. Mine was bent and the model number and pressure rating can't be read.

Still looking to find out what size and pressure the gas rod is. Any tradewind owner with front door out there that has one of these that keeps your entry door from moving once you open it?

A service center bent mine when switching out the fridges but we can't see the number or the pressure rating on it.

Couldn't read the numbers and pressure on my rod they were scrapped off during the fridge move. But I got the info and the shop replaced it today.

2001 Tradewinds 7390 LTC. Has anyone had the bottom of the entry door rot out. The wind caught my door the other day and it pulled the rod right out and water poured out and the screws were all rusted. Pretty good considering that she hasn't been in water for several months except for washing her in August.
then in checking it over, I've discovered several cracks appearing in the inside door material itself. I guess, what with everything else, the door has decided it needs replacing.
Got the new Dahmer reman engine last year and she's been running hot when the weather gets hot and she hates to pull a hill. Took it into the shop and we discussed it and they kept it for a week. $700 later, he says that they ran it and couldn't get it to overheat and I should clean the radiator once in awhile. Took it out a month ago, with temps in the mid 70s, to go to Mt Rainier and she overheated three times. Oh, and finally found the coolant leak in the pressure relief valve on the surge tank. The small black plastic cap on the left end. Took it back and told him that it was heating again and blowing coolant when I first started the motor. So, the latest is that he has the MH and is contacting Dahmer as he thinks there is an exhaust leak into the cooling system and I may get a new engine.
