Installed shocks this morning, took about 2 hours & 1st one took about 1 1/2 of that.
Here is a couple of pics of Carefrees # & # on the shocks.0411151121.jpg
Job is fairly simple once you get started. Here the shock ends, new ones came with clevis' on both ends, if by chance you drill out the rivets you will need them along with a rivet kit ordered separately.
You have to remove the arm stops on track mounted to the RV & using a ladder to support the awning tube remove the screws holding tube to arm. Awning must be in the flat position (no pitch) in order to thread both ends of shock into clevis. Once new shock is installed you will need help pulling arm down in order to mount tube back on the arm & then put stops back in place.
Use caution as there is a lot of force on the shocks & lots of pinch points.
Hope this is understandable & is of help to someone in the future.
