I finally got around to installing the struts today. The front went fine once I decided how to engineer the attachment to the stabilizer pad. With the power C Jacks attaching to the bolt that holds the pad would not work so I got a piece of flat steel and extended the pad another 2 inches on either side. I then bolted the strut to that and it goes up and down nicely. Not the prettiest installation but I'm into function over beauty (except for the DW and there I went for both......
). Seems to make a difference but can't tell much by myself, will get the DW to wander the camper later while I lay in the back, my true test.
In looking at the rear there is no crossmember that I can attach a strut to. The one I need to use is holding up the freshwater tank and putting a bolt or screw there is not an option. I may try later to add a bar across the rear or just leave the struts on the front. Another possibility would be to install the two struts only running lengthwise and see if that helps further.
Don, have you looked further into attaching the struts on the rear? I did notice that the attachment point on the frame are flexed. The metal sure is flimsy, I will keep an eye on that.
