Lost my range hood vent flap!

If I want to use my exhaust fan over the cook stove I have to go outside and turn two little clips that lock the flap closed. Well we were in Colorado camping for a week and I opened it the first day. A week later we left and I forgot about the vent flap. When I got home I noticed it was missing. I called the service department where we purchased our camper to buy a new one. I was told they don't sell the flaps just the entire range hood. I was hoping this was not a unique situation and that maybe someone knows where I could buy just the plastic flap. Hoping...

Check around other dealers. I bought a replacement several years ago. Dealer had both in stock. As a last resort, give McCords Vancouver RV a call

Look here-- RV Range Hood Vents - Arizona RV Parts Center
Google rv range exhaust flapper.
Same thing on Ebay.

A few years back I posted photos showing how to install tiny brass hinges so you don't loose it again.... can't seem to find it now. Thought it was in the FAQ.

Found it- Lost Range Vent Cover and a possible easy fix

Well, this thread has gone from using coat-hanger wire, to using $4 worth of hinges, to completely replacing the range hood's "guts" for $199, and back to using aluminum rod that was just laying around.

Something for everyone in there!

Happened 8 weeks ago. Left the clips loose and flap vanished. Went to rv dealer. Bought complete outside vent for 14.95. Two screws and I removed the flap and installed on camper same way.
