I have a 3011DS and the first thing I wanted to do was add gas struts under the bed. But after researching strut I could not find any that worked with a bed that moved with a slide. Only stationery beds. My solution was a prop to hold it up but it is heavy to lift with the upgraded mattress.

We don't intend on using under the bed for any storage and hopefully we will not have to lift it often so for now it does the job.
Excellent idea! Thanks for posting.
