On my Flagstaff (same type as Rockwood), the flap is secured by two tabs on each side that rotate out of the way. ALWAYS remember to rotate them back when driving as the flaps have been known to break off.

Additionally, bugs can enter the coach if the flap is left unsecure while in storage.

There are two tabs but they do not rotate, look like they snap and have already broken the tail light cover tabs, don't want to break these. Thought there might be a trick. Thanks.

Same as a XLR 27HFS tabs just like a walk thru boat windshield rotate so it will open. First time I cooked in mine didnt open them and was about to complain about the exhaust fan not working when I saw the tabs. facepalm!!!!

range hood vent cover

This question has been asked a number of times but I cannot yet see the answer. The cover does NOT have turn tabs. There are two tabs at the bottom. They must either pull straight down, or up and out. They are VERY stiff and I dont want to break them off by trying to move them the wrong way. So what is it - down or up and out. TKS

They rotate to keep the cover closed when you travel.
Lifting them will break them.

Mine on a 2012 Flagstaff 25KS snap out from the bottom. It helps to push up and out with thumbs.

Same on our 12Flagstaff 8528RKWS and because they are so high on the trailer, we left them unlatched and have towed over 2000 miles without loosing the flap as it is very well covered on the outside.

The first time I opened mine I thought it was glued closed! It was hard as anything to snap it open the first time. I thought I broke it when it finally opened. After that it opens and snaps close easily. Just use your thumbs and it snapes out and up.
