Because of the way the door is built I do not leave my door open when there is any wind. The my door was damaged by a wind.

First day out wife opens door, wind grabs door and strut ends strips out.

What fun.

Don't want to put in steel ones because i would rater replace a $2 part than an expensive door.

Been there done that. First trip out. Told her she broke the camper. Dealer put a heavier one in under warranty.

I told her the same thing. She had the temerity to tell me it broke her fingernail. Worst part I was stopping so she could shop in the outlets.

I know, right?

My GT does not have a strut closer. The door opens all the way back to a bumper and clip (CW #49608) on the outside wall. Just have to hang on to the screen door cross bar (CW #35872) when its windy.
