I really hate to say it, but I agree with gljurczyk. Pulling stove exhaust thru a ceiling vent is not conducive to keeping grease off the ceiling or out of the fan.

Joe,
That is exactly what I want to do. I was wondering if they used any additional supports inside the wall and or what surprises may lurk from within ....
I have just added this to my mod list.

Great Job and thank you for illustrating this job so nicely!

I sure was shocked (pun intended!) to find those wires in there. It would probably be best to kill both the AC and DC power before cutting the inside panel. The microwave moves a lot of air, so I'm sure this will work well. I'll find out real soon as we will be camping soon!

That's a very good point. You can tell how much cooking I do.

And probably why my wife makes me cook outside on the Coleman if I'm doing more than boiling water.

I can not believe that a high end CC did not come with a outside exhaust. What were they thinking. Just makes me wounder at times......

I guess some folks are more sensitive to cooking odors than me. We have the outside vent on our Silverback but I never use it. The darn thing is so high on the trailer I have to use a step stool to unlock it. Also it’s so hard to open and close that we just don’t bother with it. BTW, our first Wildcat fifth wheel didn’t have the outside vent.

Ours was hard to open also, so when I got it opened, we just leave it open. Has now traveled over 7,000 miles and it's still there.

Why isn't there a hood above the range? Cost. Or it could be, because there's a "hood" built into the microwave oven - that's not effective at all - it just blows the whatever around. Pulling the air to the ceiling, I THOUGHT was a good idea. I had forgotten about the contents of that air and the fact it could or probably will, stain the ceiling! We do bacon outside, along with other obvious odorous foods.

I'm not understanding why it is a problem to vent the existing fan outside instead of inside the rig? Grease is grease and it has to go through the cheesy little filter and the fan, and back into the camper versus this mod that vents it outside. Not seeing the problem here?

Great mod, it is on my list...
