That handle would just get in the way when turning. How did you solve the door being in the way?
I used the smallest valve possible with a plastic twist handle. I removed the handle for installation and reinstalled it afterwards. Not sure what you mean by the door being in the way, I used pipe just long enough to turn and install the valve and still be able to shut the door.
Of course all this was done back when we were pulling a pop up with a minivan and draining the water heater after every trip to save weight. The camper we have now has the anode rod and we leave it full of water the whole camping season.
