Does The Door Trim Have to Be Removed To Install SolidStep Lift Assist Kit RV Doors LC733939


Is it an absolute that the inside door trim need be removed for the mounting bracket to install properly. Where is the clearance issue I am unclear what interference is referenced. I have a 2018 Jayco 5th wheel, model 25rlts. Any photos to help explain will be appreciated. Also, I cannot tell from the drawings in the instructions exactly where the 1/2inch clearance is measured.?

The mounting bracket of the SolidStep Lift Assist Kit for 30" to 36" RV Doors part # LC733939 basically installs 1/4" away from the door jamb on the interior wall. It does need to be flush with the door jamb so if there is a piece of door trim keeping the bracket from being level with the door jamb then it needs to be removed. The 1/4" measurement is from the installation instructions for the lift assist kit itself which I have sent you in a separate email. The 1/4” gap will allow the rotating cover component to open and close without binding. If you take a look at the diagram I have attached, "B" is showing the 1/4" space between the bracket and the door frame. If there is a trim there it will need to be removed.
