Tailgate struts

On Saturday , when the weather was cold and windy , I had my tailgate open for about an hour as I was clearing a garage.

I closed the tailgate and it dropped like a stone.
Now there is no assistance what so ever

A call to the dealer is due

Took a few miles for them to become supple again , but not a real issue

Do you use an alcohol based screen wash of the correct mix - this helps too
