We have the same style as shown in Oakman's photo - they were almost impossible to open as well. After getting them popped loose with a screwdriver, I used a small file to remove the sharp edges & shorten the tabs a bit in the latches.

We has the other style on our old unit, the type with the little swiveling latches. If it wasn't closed while underway, it would slap in the breeze and make a lot of noise. If we leave this one unlatched, it doesn't seem to make any noise. We may leave it unlatched all the time.

thanks all

It sure looks like the same flap everyone is talking about. Gave the up and out a try, still can't budge it. This week end I'll look at from the inside, willing to bet some sealant got on a edge during manufacture and glued it closed.

It's not up and out, it's more of an outward move.

Possibly there is some caulking holding it but before you go on some quest, why not wait until you go a to a campground or rv park and find someone with a similar vent flap and ask them about it.

It's not the end of the world if you don't open that flap but it does help to dispel kitchen odors. Many times on short trips I don't bother to open that vent.
