Here is an example of what a buddy did in his RV 10 to make the stock Vans unit more user friendly.
The little pointer end was ground off, leaving just the longer handle part, and the valve was installed in a manner that put the handle forward.
Round plate with Left, Right, and Off positions marked on it finished off the installation.
Sorry for the photo quality, I grabbed a crop out of a larger photo, and lost some detail/clarity.
