Smile new here and need some info

I recently purchased a 2015 Freedom Elite 28H. This is our third RV. We are hooked.
I need any info on replacing the cabin door gas prop, struct whatever is the technical name. Its 20" ball to ball but does anyone know the pounds of pressure required? I see 10, 20, 40lbs. etc. on various websites. Nothing specific for my motorhome. The original part was not on the door bottom when I purchased the unit. Camping world gave me the part number 0255503 strut.
They want like $60 plus shipping. I'm willing to chance a generic 20" but need to know the lbs.

Any Help Appreciated.

On our coach it is a 40 lbs, but it does not hold the door open in any wind above 12 knots if it is off the nose.

Welcome to the Forum!
If you go to one of those Auto Parts stores: they might allow you to get a feel for the various strengths of the springs in them.
Good luck!

Google is your friend. If you use the search box on this site you should find this from a post.

You were given a Thor Part # for a 2014 Palazzo it's 20#.

Lots of info here. Should cost about $20.00
