Entry Door Removal

I apologize but have been unable to find Door Removal info via search. I need to remove the entry door assembly (door and frame) to gain about 1 inch of clearance for replacement of the reefer. Can someone describe (or point me to pics or video) how the entire assembly is removed? The vehicle is a 1997 HR Endeavor. Thanks, Bruce

Bruce: Recently had my refrigerator replaced. I was concerned that by my measurements it would not fit through the door. Service writer said they remove the refrigerator doors or if that still doesn't work they remove a window, but that is seldom necessary... The remove and install new took about an hour & 1/2.. Through the door.
When my MH was new, they upgraded the whole main entry door assembly, so it is possible to remove one but hopefully it won't be necessary..

Thanks but the entry door frame inside dimension is 23" and the narrowest dimension of the reefer is 23.6" .... close, no cigar. According to manufacturer the door rough opening is 24" (wide enough). I would prefer to remove the door/frame (assuming roughly same difficulty as window) so I don't need to do a "high lift". I'm sure I can figure out how the door is removed thru trial and error but I'm trying to get instructions so I don't damage old trim.

On our '92 HR the door is held in with screws around the outside perimeter of the frame. They are covered by the vinyl strip around the door frame.

A big THANKS !!! to those that provided directions. I have started the replacement and I'm trying to take pictures as it progresses.
Replace Dometic with Summit FF1152SS

On mine, there were 2 or 3 screws thru the jamb on the latch side but the strike bolt did not need to be removed. Also, the hinge screws did not need to be removed (they are short and do not go thru the jamb).
