Gas struts for the rear "engine" hood

I know it's technically not an engine hood, but wondering if anyone off hand knows the specs for the struts to lift the hood at the rear of the coach (to access oil dipstick, coolant etc etc). i.e. how many lbs each strut is rated for and the length. I haven't pulled one off yet to check, just thought someone might have done this already. Mine are done. Thanks for any help guys.

....managed to find out on my own. For reference if anybody needs to know in the future they are 150lb struts with a length of 27 3/16" Which I believe translates to a standard 26".

There should be a model number printed on the side of the struts. If you google that number you will see who sells them. I just did that for the struts on my electric compartment door.
