TT door mod

I just bought a new to me 2006 Arctic Fox 29v. The door between the living area and bathroom/bedroom opens into the living room and I would like to turn it to open into the bath area.
Question #1~has anyone done this? Is it advisable?
Question #2~can someone tell me from the attached pictures, how I remove the door casing from the wall so I can turn it so the stop in on the living side instead of the bathroom side? There is only 1 visible screw but the casing itself seems VERY solid. Question #3~Is it glued?

The casing is held in place likely by silicone most of the time that is what they use. You can do it if that the you want it to swing you could use a bi-fold door too or a door that folds into the smaller sections accordion door I believe it's called. There is no set rule on what to put there just make it work for your needs

Ok! Well, I do want to stay with the door I have. Silicon is pretty tough stuff.......how would I remove the casing without damaging it. I envision prying it loose and having little visible creases.........

start at the bottom and try to ease it off I know it's a pain but that your time it will come off use a small scraper to get behind the edge it might be L nails on the back of it also I have seen both used but they will come off
