The "RH" means a standard right-hand screw thread. The "leftie-loosie rightie-tightie" kind. I hold the shaft with some small pliers and just unscrew the crank counter-clockwise (anti-clockwise) by hand.
This next part comes from the perspective of the GIII model so YMMV if yours is not the same.
On mine the shutter release is inside the film advance lever circular thing.
They told me to try stuff like a washer, a rubber jar opener, something with friction.
Nope, would not budge, period!
I finally ended up drilling two very small holes, actually more like indentations, in the circular chrome ring and then using a lens spanner. Even then it took a lot of "ooommmph" to get it to move the first time.
Hope this helps.
