I was wondering where you can buy gas struts for inside overhead cabinets. I had a KZ that had them and held the door open.

Don't think you want gas struts, maybe spring struts. My Flagstaff 8528RKWS has them, so you might contact FR parts dept.

Here is also a possibility. http://www.amazon.com/JR-Products-70...net+door+strut

Camping world also has them. Do you have any directions on how to install them? I was wondering about the angles and how you figure out where to mount them.

If CRS doesn't kick in, I will measure mine in the morning before I take it in for new tires. PM me in the morning.

Strut side anchor is on the door 1-1/2" down from hinge. Cabinet end of strut in 5-3/4" down from hinge. Struts are mounted upside down, big tube on strut is up, rod end is down.
