Help removing doorframe

Hi, I'm new to the forum. I have a 2001 21' Bigfoot and have discovered leakage and water damage from the awning attachment points. I need to remove the door frame and can't see any flange on the inside, and the outside has a fibreglass moulding around the door with no obvious way to detach it.



Can anyone give me a hint as to the best way to remove this? I'm leery of just ripping it off by force and creating a bigger problem to solve.
Thanks
Mark.

the black trim beside the hinges is a screw cover, it should go all the way around the door, pop it out of the track, and you should see the screws. if you damage the cover, it is available from most RV dealers, I just got enough to do 5 trailers because I had to buy a bundle, but it was less than $30.00

Before you damage something.....I had an issue with leaking door frame. In order to gain access, you must remove 3 screws that are buried in the fabric above the entrance door. The screws are inside the camper and screw into a wood structure. This structure holds the exterior "trim" or rim tight to the camper. I can dig for photos if needed. I did a previous post on this.
