Under Belly Compartment Door

I have a 2012 Pinnacle and was wondering if anyone has modified the length of the under compartment lifts? The reason I ask is because I built some steps for us to have an easier time getting in and out of the rig, and with the compartment door open, it gets in the way of the steps. We keep the rig in one location almost year round is the reason I built large steps with a landing. I am trying to prevent a butt chewing from the boss lady if and when she hits her head on the door coming down the steps.

How about just eliminating the struts and using a catch

I thought about that but wasn't to keen on adding holes, thought I could maybe add longer struts and was hoping someone had done it before. Guess I will be the Guinea Pig. Thanks for the reply.

Report back if you get it to work. I wouldn't mind one of mine opening higher.
