Problem with lift assist gas struts and wind
Posted 04 March 2012 - 05:45 PM
So I guess my advice would is: be aware of this issue. In high winds its probably best to remove the gas struts while lowering the roof.

2007 Dodge 2500 quad cab 4x4 5.7L Hemi auto and slowly progressing build.
FYI: I've got a bunch of extra 14ga wire in red and black. Its a thick jacket 41strand wire (likely MTW wire) verse typical 19strand automotive wire. It has good flexibility but factor in the thick jacket. I'll ship out 100' coils for $18 (I can go 50' of ea for that too) if anyone is in need of wire.

My suggestion, too.
I wonder if closing the door and turning the fan on to exhaust would help.
I've had to do this even without the lift-assist struts when the wind is blowing directly from the rear.
Or, tie the dog on the roof to provide added downward force.
