Added gas struts for hold opens. Apexstone 80N/18lbs 7” Gas Spring purchased on Amazon. This strut has the right amount of hold open power. Really a nice option, surprised FWC doesn’t install as standard on the front dinette. Much easier to R+R gear. Cheap upgrade for the convenience gained.

Great idea!   

 

This should also work for the 'wine cellar' on the flatbed rear dinettes.

Great idea!!!

 

We where thinking about a magnet and metal plate idea but I really like the strut idea better.

 

Off to Amazon.

Interesting mod, thanks for the share. It seems like FWC may have had a design change on the front dinettes: my 2018 has one big panel under the table that lifts from the front. My buddies 2017 or 2016 has the same 2 flap design as yours. I think I like 2 better for ease of access.
