    I spray them down with silicone spray. Work the unit several times and wipe the excess off.

    Do you happen to have the part number for the gas struts handy? I like to keep this type of information for reference.

    Sorry, no I don't have any info on the Gas struts. I was under the impression that he was asking about the fold down leveling jacks but in looking at it this morning with fresh eyes I think the jacks he referred to must be gas struts.
    In the past I have ordered gas struts from the local auto parts store, they needed the length and weight to order them. I just googled the part number on my RAH struts and they popped up.

    I would think those metal clips facing down could wear a hole in things like a sleeping bag pretty quickly going down the road.

    I have the same situation with mine. I did some checking around and the oem ones are only 30 lb lifting effort. I would think that 40 lbs lifting would work better, as I have to 'clean and jerk' the lid just like lifting heavy weights. have not located any 40 lb gas cylinders yet.

    Button it up. We came up with a better way to get the door out of the way. She sewed a button on one of the straps and sewed the other strap into a loop. It's much easier to get in and out especially at night. You don't need 3 hands to tie the doors up and you don't need a light to undo them in the dark. Click image for larger version.
