eldermike, I like the idea of the plastic struts. Looking forward to your end results. I also agree, for what these things sell for, Jayco should have installed them at the factory.

I installed them took about an hour, perfect solution IMHO. I'll post some pictures later.

I determined that they first screw on the bottom was 3 1/4 inches up from bottom of door opening. I pre-drilled all of those and then one at a time I installed the bottom screw and marked all the remaining holes on each one. I set the doors open with tape holding them open. I marked my pre-drill with a sharpie so I would not drill through the doors. I always select a pre-drill size by testing it on a scrap of wood to see if the screw strips or drives hard.

What's the widest door that 1 support handles before needing to put one on each side in your opinion?

They come 2 in a package and I was not sure until I tested the first door that I could use one on each of the doors in the Pinnacle. The design and weight of the door will determine the need for one or two. A stiff door under a few lbs and 1 will work fine.
