Question Basement Door Removal

I have 1993 Sportscoach. I need to remove one of the basements doors to re-attach the skin. It appears to have 2 continuous aluminum C channels as a hinge. Does anyone know how to un-mate these channels so that I can remove the door? It appears that I should be able to open the hatch far enough that the 2 halves would slip apart but that does not seem to be the case. Thanks for any help. John

John, you will have to slide door off of the track to get to the one you need off. You will probably have to remove some screws at the end to give you enough clearance. Are you sure you cannot reattach the skin with the door on the coach? Good luck and keep us posted.

Thanks I didnt think to loosen the stationary part of the hinge. and yes I think I do need to remove it as the two ends of hatch have slipped out of the mating half possably the door has warped. I knew this was not going to be an easy task.
The funny thing is two years ago emptying the tanks at yellowstone the door covering that part fell off and a fellow camper helped me pop it back in.
