    Try this link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/Aliner/

    to access all my how-to articles or this below link to access the article on easily installing effective gas spring lift assistance:

    https://www.facebook.com/download/preview/213323353393495/

    The article has been thoroughly revised to show the improved method I am now using. After a lot of research and work the ultimate solution has been found and installed on my trailer. It builds on the work of others who have successfully installed the most successful gas spring solution.

    I evaluated all the methods for installing roof panel lift assisting struts. You might want to review my article. Several folks have scrapped the Aliner installation method. I tried the initially-vertical method and now I switched to the best method out there. Check out my article on installing gas springs (called How to Install Gas Spring Lift Assistance) in the files at:

    https://www.facebook.com/groups/Aliner/

    or directly at this link:

    https://www.facebook.com/download/preview/213323353393495/

    I put a lot of work and expense into this article so others could benefit by my research, mistakes and finally great successes! Based on all the horror stories, I would never want an electrical powered roof lifting system when this system is so simple and works automatically. And you don't mangle your roof panels if one electric lift stops working or one wind cheeta strap activates in windy conditions or with the jerking motion of the roof panels when starting them up a second time.

    Hi Brian, since the Yahoo group requires a login, can you post a copy of your article on this site?

    Yahoo groups died! You can peruse or join a replacement group and within the files section of that group is one called "How to Install Gas Spring Lift Assistance". The group is at this link:

    https://www.facebook.com/groups/Aliner/

    This article provides the easiest and most effective method for installing gas springs.

    The file is too large to post on this site. I started a new replacement group on Facebook where you can find this file. Facebook is better than Yahoo. Here is the link to the group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/Aliner/ Just look in the files section or go to this file direct at:

    https://www.facebook.com/download/preview/213323353393495/

    Note that the former Yahoo group died as have all such Yahoo groups.
