Hi Brian,

Sorry for the confusion, I mean the plastic panels either side of the door with the windows in. They hook under the bed boards with elastics. Don't the struts stop them from turning under the bed boards??
Now the weather is getting better I will be working on mine so I will be able to send you pictures.
Regards, Ian.

Gas struts fitted yesterday. They realy do make a difference. Set-up can be a one man job now! Also when packing away it is easy to pull the roof out when it gets trapped under the bed boards!!
I'm still not sure about tucking yhe bat wings around the struts. It looks as if it may be a bit draughty on a windy night! I may put in an extra eyelet and elastic and put a slit in the skirt.
Thanks to Brian for the details of the struts to use etc. And for everyone's help.
