Part Number for Gas Spring on Storage Bay Door

Hello!

During one of our trips last year, the "suicide" basement door on the passenger side flew open while we were cruising down the interstate.

The gas spring/strut ripped off and was never seen again. The door itself hung on but over extended about 4 inches and the hinges cut into the door panel a tad.

I'm hoping another 2011 390BH owner would be able to tell me the Suspa model number of the gas spring/strut that is on their door. The bay door is the one that has the gas line quick connect and is forward of the compartment with the tanks and water pump. The part number is written on the cylinder. The part number I have for the gas springs on the bay doors forward of this suicide door is C16-08568, but those are a different size.

Thanks for any help!

How did that suicide door come open? It closes first and the other door helps hold it in place? Am I missing something?

Thanks, outloud! That was exactly what I was looking for.

It came open while driving in strong cross winds and passing a semi. I guess the turbulence hit the door just right and it flew open with a loud bang. At first I thought I ran over and kicked up a 2x4 or something. Then I looked at the side mirror and saw the door wide open - reaching into the next lane. Ugh!

Thanks, again, for the help.
