I would like to know if anyone has looked into removing the strut /piston of their coach door?
As mine opens to 90 degrees and sometimes just gets in the way at the campsite. I was looking at ways to have the door fully open at the campground and have it latch to the side of the RV.
I have a 2013 31MS Greyhawk.
On my Greyhawk I thought about removing the stop but as said above it will slam into awning arm, and I also have to tighten the shock bracket often. I know it is loose because it starts scrapping on top of door flange.
My 2004 Greyhawk 31ss does not have a piston/strut assembly. It has a metal stop mounted on the wall a socket mounted on the door and held by a rubber insert in the socket. I bought my MH used & had to replace the socket. Upon removal of the old socket I found the shaft had pushed though the rubber and punched a hole in the door. I cut a piece of aluminum in the shape of the socket and installed it behind the socket to prevent further damage to the door and the rubber piece. The shaft of the stop had broken off the base but I got a local welding/fabrication business to weld it back for free. If any have this same set up I advise to check behind the door socket for damage.
