I removed that stupid shock and added the T holder to our 2304 mini lite. I absolutely hated that thing . Plus 2 of our friends had theirs ripped off by gusts of wind. The T screwed into the door, and the receiver into the trailer wall with no problems. And I am still able to open the window next to the door all the way with the T engaged.

Finally got the gas shocks removed and the "T" latches installed. The front door was pretty straight forward install. The rear one took a little extra thinking to insure that the glass tilt out window doesn't get crashed if the door gets away from me and the window is open. The bumpers will make direct contact with each other and still leave 1/2" clearance between door and open glass. Neither bumper contacts the fiberglass directly. Rear latch is 6" long and the front one is standard length. There's 2-3 fingers spacing with the latch engaged, to the glass

Did you just screw the supplied screws in there no problem?

I did. Use 1/8 drill. Use tape caulk from CW. under plates. As others have said, tighten VERY gingerly, you are going through 1 layer of fiberglass. Don't strip the threads! The caulk will ooze out around the plates after a bit and you can retighten. Again, a light touch on the screwdriver! Trim excess caulk with xacto knife,using care not to score fiberglass.
