Based on the Supports Depots recommendation I used the 40 lbs lifts. While that makes it possible for two people to lift, it isn't as smooth as Habitat's setup. May opt to change the awning side 50 lbs, or all 50 lbs. I removed two of the tie downs providing more room.
All the credit goes to...
Thanks for the insights! Doing it again would you choose struts with more lifting ability? And from your opinion, one side of my setup has is heavier with an awning, would it be wise to get struts with more force on that side?
Great work. I too saw the Habitat video and thought it was a brilliant solution. Wanting the ability to raise and lower the tent, I opted to get 4 linear actuators but may reconsider and use struts instead.
Do you mind letting me know the bracket, ball stud, and other things needed...
I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and wait longer for a response. Wonder if Smittybilt is aware of this thread as I'm sure many people have purchased the trailer based on the discussion here, myself included. It would go a long way to see them taking care of their customers.
For those in contact with Smittybilt concerning the reinforcement brackets and cooking drawer update, would you please PM me the email address you used. I've emailed them last week using the website and have not gotten a reply.
