What's behind door #1

I cannot figure out if this is actually a door. It has a knob and hinges at the bottom but it doesn't want to open. I have tugged on it almost to the point of breaking something. It is in the bathroom of a 2003 Classic 25' I just purchased. Any ideas what is going on?

Looks like access to the rear of the water heater.

I had a door like that but it ended up being velcroed. I was sure I was breaking something. I just stared at the corner and worked it down and off. Maybe obvious, have you searched from the otherside / outside?

The water heater is further to the rear. I believe the wheel well is behind it.

It doesn't even look like a door. The sides seem sealed. It's just weird that it has hinges and a knob.

My trailer has one like it. The fender well is behind it. You can get to some plumbing through it. I don't want store anything hard in there that might damage the wiring or plumbing. I put toilet paper and paper towels in it.....it just pulls open.

That's what I was thinking...
Maybe it is access to the water heater bypass or some plumbing or wiring or all of the above...

Yes it covers the fender well and some piping
I use it to store my tank treatments and spare water pump. Stuff does fall forward of the wheel well and is difficult to retrieve
The door is hinged on the bottom and is typically very difficult to open since the catch is seldom operated... "pull Hard"

Does the know turn at all?? Might need to run a blunt blade or credit card around the edge to loosen the seal.

I pulled as hard as I am comfortable doing. Something Is fixing to break. Since the reward is possibly only a very small area behind the door, I am not going to risk tearing it up.
