Door Grab Handle

Hello All,

Just purchased a fifth wheel and was wondering...

We are seasonal campers and the unit is on a lot and never moved. We have wooden built steps that we use. My question is, on the door grab handle, we would like to remove that so that the steps, (they have a hand rail) could be moved closed to the door. The handle is in the way. If you move it where it is out of the way, the steps are too far to one side.

Is there a way to remove just the handle? It's base would not interfere.

Screwdriver, Most likely a #2 square bit should do it

If this is the big fold out handle, why not fold it the other way?

Home is where I park it!

We did move it against the unit but it makes it so the steps don't come close enough to the camper.

I thought if we could just take the handle and not necessarily the base off, it would be perfect....

If we took the whole unit off, that would leave holes, right? Then what could we do? So afraid of getting ANY water into the unit any where.

What handle is it? There are plenty of different kinds of handles.
Most likely, the base has to come off?

And you have to be very diligent on keeping the exterior sealed up if you are scared of water.
