I agree, I want my range hood to vent outside but a properly operating
gas stove does not produce enough carbon monoxide to be an issue.
Many homes have gas stoves with no outside exhaust vent over them.
It's not code mandatory to have the exterior vent.
It's good customer relations to have the vent but the RV makers often
don't consider what's best for us when they make these nickel and dime
Reference the recent discussion where dometic has decided to remove
the user selectable anti-condensation switch thereby taking the
operation of the battery sucking heater out of our hands. Recent models
require the user to disconnect a hidden wire in order to do any amount
of dry camping.
