The clips on my Rockwood push up and are very stiff and difficult to operate. They don't pivot. I expect them to break each time I in latch them.

Took the flaps off our last 2 trailers and just put some screen wire on the last one. The 5er we have now has the SAM-1-81 Range Hood Upgrade Kit which closes from the inside.

Sounds like you have the old style,,, tabs that turn to lock or unlock ???
I am surprised you have those in a 2015 unit ???

If you have a painted unit,,, the paint can also make it hard to open the first time !!!

I almost never got the range fan flap open on my Windjammer, I was afraid it was going to break before I got it open.
