30DS Entry Door piston

Entry door will slam open and if awning is open will bang into it. Is there a way to get the door to open slowly without holding it...My 2017 Sunseek 2430 had a nice slow opening entry door but this 2018 FR3 30DS is bad news

Lighter Piston

We replaced our factory piston with one that is just 10 lbs. It did the trick!

Our shock is the 10 lb size, but the bracket on the door had to be moved to a diff position so the door would not hit the awning arm when it was out.
