I just replaced the gas spring in our freezer (H46) with a Suspa C16-06874. $15 for two from Amazon, seems to be a drop in replacement for the Attwood springs Merrill mentioned.

Mark,
I am not sure if you are still looking for a gas shock. I am replacing the shock on my Hylas 49. I found this gas spring:

The dimensions of the GSSK 18437 match my spring and I am guessing based on your information that the pressure should be 180 N (Newton) or about 40 Lbs.

Thanks for looking that up.  Unfortunately the 54's must use something different because mine are 20" expanded and 12" compressed so we are not the same at all.  In that size, the lowest pressure rating made is 10# pressure and QL quoted you for a 5#. Thanks though.

Mark,
When I inquired with Queen Long a few years ago for our 46 Ambition, they provided the following information:

We can provide the current gas shocks (ST30-40-5 ATTWOOD SS 8MM EXT 10" CMP 7") with brackets (SL58SSP3-7 ATTWOOD SM 90D BRKT W/10MM  B) model we used for fridge lid for current boats.

We purchased them and had no issues at all.
Hope this helps you!

Fridge/Freezer lid gas shock pressure?

Does anyone know the gas pressure orderedo by Hylas in the fridge and freezer gas shocks for the top opening fridge and freezer doors?  I'd like to replace both gas shocks but I can't read the pressure on my Attwood shocks. Attwood says that the gas pressure is stamped into the rod or the cylinder. Looks like SL-15-60 in some models.  The final two numbers are the pressure (60psi).   In other models, N180 could be used and that would indicate 180psi.
