If you have a very hot humid day which is causing the coils to freeze up you can open this vent to have maximum air flow and prevent freeze up. Once inside cools some, you can close it and AC will work as normal.
Always use my quick chill vent Just didn't know thats what its call. I call it something else..dont ask

I don't think most people turn off the propane when going in gas stations or tunnels

You are probably correct...but most people are not always right. I would turn it off if my frig propane burner was located anywhere near potential gasoline fumes. Tunnels are a different story.

OK call me ignorant but here is a picture of the outside vent on my Surveyor. Another of 1 of 2 tabs at the bottom. So I don't break anything, how does the vent open?

Do you know where your GFI is on your wall plugs? you would think it was on one of the two plugs that are nearest the kitchen sink. Nope, not in my 5th wheel! after 8 days of what i assumed was a blown fuse, where 4 plugs quit working, after pulling out all the fuses one by one and checking them against a new fuse, still no idea what was happening. i was ready to call a service person, to help figure it out..( i am seasonal) by accident, i discovered a GFI plug above the bathroom sink/ below the bathroom mirror. in the 12 years i have owned the trailer, i have never blown a fuse, or used that plug! i saw that the GFI button had popped, and pushed it back in, and Wa La, i have power back in the the 4 plugs! I sure wish there was a video that came with each camper to take you through all these seemingly simple things that you need to know about.

it opens by the air pushing it out, when the exhaust fan is on!

On our 30THSS, the flap is snapped closed and must be snapped open.

You push up on the two tabs near the bottom corners of the inner flap. You have to press upwards quite firmly - harder than you would expect. Same thing when closing - push up and in with your thumbs. I preferred the small turn tabs on the stationary frame in my old TT but I guess that was two parts that had to be inserted by hand as opposed to a single molded piece. Even China has to cost reduce to keep from losing jobs to third-world countries even farther down the chain!

you learn something new everyday here... I luv this place...

I will reiterate that pushing up is harder then it should be, also put pressure on your thumbs to pull out at the same time as pressing up to help release the plastic tab...

I always wondered why my range vent did NOT vent smoke from the burners???? Can't do it if the outside vent is snapped closed.
