Replacing Stick-On Mirror Door Pull

Broken the second one now. First one Newmar factory techs replaced, and I didn't see how they did it.

Any suggestions on getting the old bottom plate off? It broke at the posts, so it's just the flat plate still on the door. Also, any suggestions on where to get a replacement?

These doors are fairly heavy, so Newmar put two catches in for each door (high and low, each side). It takes a LOT of pressure to release two catches at once, which is why the pulls break. I'm thinking of removing/disabling one of the catches. Actually, Sue doesn't like the mirror doors at all, and we're thinking of getting them replaced with wood doors that match the one between the bedroom and the bath. Might not be lighter, but we can get a better handle on a wood door.

Joe, use a plastic putty knife and a hair dryer or heat gun to help remove the flat piece of the handle. Once the old handle is off I use goo gone to remove any left over adhesive. Then clean spot with a glass cleaner and stick new handle on. Most RV parts store or camping world will carry these. I measure the other handle from the bottom of the door to make sure they are the same height. They are only $12 - $15 for these and usually I'll carry an extra as I seem to open one side when the other side is slightly open and break the handle off.

Thanks. That's about what I figured it would take, but confirmation is always good. Now I just need to get to someplace I can find the handles. None to be had in Valdez, that's for sure.

Yeah, a spare or two does seem like a good idea.
