    Hi has anyone fitted Hymer bed struts ? I have managed to remove the old ones, but the new ones have to be fitted fully extended due to high pressure in the strut. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks Phil

    Bookmarked this thread as I'll need to be doing this myself this year.

    I have these instructions that someone emailed to me, so I cannot vouch for them and do not know if this is the correct way to change them

    Hello gillnphil and Jim

    Which model Hymers are these and what sort of money did the struts cost?

    Thanks

    The model hymer was B630 starline, they cost £95 per pair, and I fitted them myself. Awkward but not impossible. If you need some tips you can phone me on 07772842903.
    Regards Phil
