No worries. I've got 2 doors, one with the folding grab handle the other without. I insisted on 2 doors when I bought my TT since the kitchen in is the middle, if there is a fire there I can always get out. I can't get my frame through that little exit window. The other reason is, when I was young I was told to never date a lady in a trailer with one door.

IMO, it's not worth worrying about.

I have the same handle design + cannot open my door.
Its always been my habit when driving my semi and any trailer with brakes when I am away from my vehicle I always do a walk around checking things before I get in and I put truck in gear and pull the trailer with brakes set to see if I move and the trailer wont if things are ok you wont move, fifth wheel or ball hitch are ok things are the what they are suppose to be and brakes are adjusted right

I am glad the grab rail works just like it does on my fiver. I use it as a safety device when I'm towing to be sure the door does not fly open. If someone ever walked by and closed mine, I could get out the door if I wanted to badly enough. The emergency exits would be a tight fit, but at 250 lbs., I could still get out. If you have a cell phone as most do and not in a dead zone, call 911 and ask the next law enforcement officer that came along to stop or the 911 operator could call the campground and there is always good old fashioned yelling for help. All in all I like my grab rail just as it is.

My only concern with filing to change the ramp angle is that the grab handle may swing open going down the road. I'd start with a dab of grease first.

I don't know about other floor plans but I believe on our Silverback 29RE the window in the slide near the door could be opened to reposition the grab rail.

I hate the thought of DW shoving me out a exit window. I'll try some grease but I think I'll have to look for some kind of cable lock

Not sure what model you have, but in our 29IK the slide out right next to the door has a window and sliding screen. Just slide the window, slide the screen reach out and move the handle.

Grab Handle

Drill a hole in the "U" on the TT door side of the bottom grab handle support to accommodate/use a bike lock. Final walk around before leaving, remove lock.

Our Cedar Creek 32RL does not have a window any where near the door
