Avenue drivers side baggage door strut mounting.

Hello Allies, we are experiencing issues with the drivers side top struts falling out of the ball joint ends on our new 32RLS.The mounting plates are attached to the flimsiest part of the door and move around a lot causing the arms to fall off.Has anyone put a backer plate and possibly more screws to beef this area up?It will just be a matter of time before the screws rip out entirely if we don’t address this.

I'm in the same boat. I think it is a bad design and try to figure out a way to hook it open while the slide is out and magnets like the passenger side while the slide is in.

I prop it open with a broom like the first camper we ever had back in the 70’s.🍺

I beefed up the mounting by adding a piece of 1/8 in plate.It’s not sloppy now.Maybe Alliance will see?
