New RV Door Handle Helper











Those of you that know me know that I am the unhandiest person around when it comes to mechanical functions. Last week we visited with Bill and Helen Moll, in Silver Springs, FL, where they have their Montana for the winter season. Bill had installed a "Handle Helper" to the outside entry door to their Big Sky. That little item made it so much easier to open the door. We had to put our fingers inside a hole and behind the opener to open our door and it sometimes caused problems when our hands were cold or the latch would stick. We located one at Tweety's RV Supply, on-line, and ordered it. It arrived today and I had it installed in about five minutes. Never thunk it could have been done by me so quickly and properly. Now our door unlatches so easy that it is surprising. After so many years of RVing, I am FINALLY getting handy. Whodathunkit?

Jim, Everytime I pat myself on the back for something mechanical I accomplished it comes back to bite me. I hope that is not your exprience. It looks like a good deal. I'll keep my eye out for one. Take care.

I finally got my password changed so that I can get into the comments.
Ron, it is screwed on. They were supposed to be at dealers but we found none in the Ocala area. We used tweetys.com for ours.
John, it is still attached just like I knew what I was doing.
