Tall & bald seems to be a recipe for headaches around an RV. After hitting my head on just about everything, here’s one less place to bang up my cranium.
Our RV came equipped with gas lift springs on the basement doors. But after 10+ years, some of them have lost their ooomph, and don’t hold the doors all the way up. This has led to additional unnecessary noggin strikes. It’s so easy to fix this problem, I probably only waited so long because I was dizzy.
Gas lift springs are pretty common on most mid-to-high-end motorhomes, and they do seem to last a long time. But when they begin to fail, it’s a slow process where the doors fall lower and lower over time. One day you realize that you’re sick of ducking and banging and it’s time to do something about it, replacing the springs with new units from Hatchlift.com.
Door Lift Springs Are Not Just For Motorhomes
Even if your motorhome, 5th wheel or travel trailer didn’t come from the factory with these great self-lifting doors that stay out of the way, it’s easy to retrofit them. Besides replacement springs, Hatchlift makes complete kits for doors that never had them before. They’re designed to mount on most basement doors, and they even make complete kits and replacement springs for RV beds too.
