Need some new gas struts for your RV? Check out RecPro and our new gas strut sets! Gas struts are sometimes also called gas springs, gas dampers, and gas pressure dampers. Our RecPro gas struts are built to compete with other popular brands on the market and provide for 120 lbs. of force for each strut. Our heavy-duty gas struts undergo thorough and rigorous testing. This helps to ensure that they meet or exceed the OEM specifications for various applications. Consult cross-reference guides to make sure that our gas struts are suitable for your needs.

Our heavy-duty gas struts are designed and built for RV, automotive, and agricultural purposes. We have designed these gas struts to help with issues involving hatches and doors opening and closing. Our heavy-duty gas struts provide you with controlled, measured movement when opening and closing, as well as integrated damping.

Our gas struts are built with quality and durability that can compete with the top brands in the industry and are exceptionally easy to install. If you have any questions or concerns about the installation of our heavy-duty gas struts, speak with an automotive professional.

*IMPORTANT – At RecPro, our gas struts are sold as sets. We do this because manufacturers recommend that both struts be replaced at the same time, when applicable. Changing out only a single gas strut can place extra stress on the other strut, leading to undue wear and tear. In turn, this additional wear and tear can lead to possible catastrophic failure in the future. Whenever installing replacement equipment on your vehicle, remember to adhere to proper safe work practices.*

YOU SHOULD: Take a look at the gas struts already on your vehicle and compare them to the replacement gas struts to make sure that they are the same. Compare the part numbers of the gas struts and make sure that they match. If the part numbers of the gas struts are not matching, do not attempt to use the replacement gas struts. Each gas strut is designed for a particular purpose and vehicle, and it can be dangerous to use a gas strut for a purpose it is not intended for. Doing so can result in damage to the vehicle or even bodily harm.

It is highly recommended that you have a second person, such as a friend or family member assist you when installing the replacement gas struts. The person assisting you can hold the liftgate, hood, trunk, or lid open as you install the replacement gas struts. If your equipment has two gas struts, one gas strut will not have enough force to keep the application open.

To remove the existing gas strut: While having someone hold the application open, use a small flat tool such as a screwdriver to gently, but not completely, lift the retaining clip. The retaining clip is located on the top of the ball socket. Once the retaining clip is slightly lifted, you can pull the gas strut off the ball stud. Repeat this step for the other end of the gas strut. Do not remove the clip from the socket entirely, as it may fly off and become lost. It could also cause injury or damage. Compare this gas strut to the replacement gas strut and verify that they are the same.

Once the old struts are removed, you can then install the replacement gas strut by pushing them onto the ball studs by hand, using light pressure at the ball socket. You do not need to use any tools. Do not use any tools or equipment on the exposed black rod. Make sure that you install the replacement gas strut in the same orientation as the original: do not switch ends in mounting. Start by mounting the rod end to the trunk, hood, or lid. Once mounted, the tube will be able to rotate into position for mounting to the vehicle frame, if applicable. Once the replacement gas strut has been mounted, do not remove it unless it needs to be replaced. Open and close the hood or trunk slowly to make sure that it is functioning properly.
