Today I installed a new hard shell roof top tent (all excited) only to find the front/thin end will not lift up and/or stay up/open (excitement now deflated). I am currently dealing with the supplier for a resolve. But I thought I would post here in case anyone else has had a similar issue. I suspect a faulty gas strut/s

Thanks

Rod, I guess it would be more help if you posted the brand / model.

I have deliberately left the brand/make out as at this stage its not the issue.

But having some idea what design you're working with might help.

May I assume it is not a wind up unit with crank handle to raise it. If it is then the connecting chain might have come adrift from the non crank end. Easy fix if it's the case.

Hi Leigh. Its a gas strut version. The supplier is sending replacement struts.
