    Under bed struts

    Changed the mattress in our 2024 310GK and as expected, the struts will not hold the mattress up. Does anyone have the next weight strut that will hold it up?

    We used 20” stroke 180lb struts on ours after converting to a residential queen

    We upgraded our struts to 150lbs which is enough to hold up a RV King replacement mattress.

    Take a picture of your existing struts. That way you will have the current strength and length. Then you can go onto Amazon and order the right size just a heavier lift capacity, we did the same thing a few years back, I think I'm running 180lb lift.

    Iwas able to reposition the struts for more lift force. A little trial and error, but it was free.

    Position of the struts makes a HUGE difference. That said, I put in two new 67 lb struts; mattress weighs 72 pounds. All works well.
