So, the Shore Power Door dropped on my head for the last time. Apparently you have to pry these off with a screwdriver, and bang them on with a mallet. Don't they make a tool, like pliers, so you don't have to pound on your RV?
Kevin Means said:Yeah, unless you have different kinds of gas struts than I'm familiar with, I suspect that you're pounding on them unnecessarily. The little locking clip is small, but it's at the end of the strut near the socket. Like Dutch said, just use a small flat screwdriver, and twist it to slowly pry it loose. They can sometimes be a bit awkward to snap back into place, so I don't take the clip completely off. I just pop them out enough to get the strut loose. FWIW
