Installed the Door Struts

I installed the door struts, which hold the door open.  There are several reports of struts failing to hold doors open in moderate/heavy wind, so I opted for the “heavy duty strut” option.

Also, there were reports of RV-10s with one door held “more open” than another, so there’s an asymmetrical look with both doors open.  I was very careful when measuring and drilling the brackets the struts attach to, and think it turned out well.

We’d been holding the doors open with a ladder up to now, so this will be very convenient.
