To make sure you have a good bond from one epoxy surface to the other, you can take a small drill bit, put a collar on the drill bit. adjust it so that it is shallower than the thickness of the door.(this keeps you from drilling all the way through the door.) Drill several holes in the old epoxy. This will give you a better adhesion.

I wanted to update this thread.
And make a correction..... I was quoted $600 for the repair at Camping World not $800.00! But still...!
Got a second quote from another RV dealer for $300.00.
Went to a third RV place and was told they did not do that kind of repair but when they got them in they farmed it out to a local collision repair shop and recommendeed I go there.
To make a long story short...and sweet...the collision repair place fixed the problem and charged $140.00!!!! They said the problem was that the manufacturer had bonded the access cover to powder coated brackets and the powder coating had failed. The bonding was still connected to the powder coating but the powder coating had come off the bracket!!
Will be very wary of Camping World from now on.
