I’m not a mathematician, but I’ve learned that RV + Tall + Bald = Headaches. I swear, over the years I’ve hit my head on just about every conceivable low spot on our motorhome. So the last thing I need is our basement doors sagging down, providing yet more targets.

Our basement compartment doors came from the factory equipped with pressurized gas springs. They lift the doors automatically and hold them in place. After more than 10 years, some of the springs have begun to wear out and no longer have enough pressure to hold the doors all the way up.

We replaced all of our weak gas springs with new ones from Hatchlift. As you can see in the video above, replacement is so quick and easy that you have to pay close attention or you’ll miss it!

Not only do they have replacement springs for those of us with factory installations, but they also make complete lift kits for doors not originally equipped with them. This allows anyone to retrofit their motorhome, 5th wheel or travel trailer with self-opening compartment doors like ours.

We love our new springs, so we’re excited to announce that Hatchlift is now offering a special discount to RVgeeks viewers. Simply use the coupon code GEEKS10 when checking out on their website and you’ll get 10% off your entire order of high-quality Hatchlift products.
