Lack of Microwave Range Vent

Has anyone installed an outside vent for the microwave range exhaust?

I have not determined if the wall studs are in the way or not. Nor am I sure if the microwave is mounted in the same manner as in the S&B. I would think that it is....

Any reason why CC did not punch another hole in the wall of the kitchen slide for the vent?

DW is a great cook, and does not like we have to turn on the Fantastic roof vent when she is cooking (which does work btw ).

We don't have a microwave vent, but do have a stove/range vent which we never close, just turn the fan on when needed.

We use our Fantastic fan when cooking anything that has a strong smell, regardless of how good it is. The coach is just too small at times. We open a window a tiny bit and let the fan do its job. Certainly helps remove excess heat when the AC is on.

It would be nice to turn the exhaust fan on, and have it exhaust outside.

Yes, I can't understand why Cedar Creek didn't put a vent above the stove. This is the only RV I have owned that didn't have a vent.

It's entirely possible for whatever reason it may have been a code violation with your particular setup to have a stove/ microwave vent.

I don't think the stove vent is really that necessary. The vents I've had on other RVs made more noise than move air. The Fantastic fan in ceiling does a great job of venting the kitchen. Also one less hole in the RV to maintain is a good thing.

I agree they are noisy, but they do move air, at least all of ours have.

As for the omission on a CC due to a possible code violation? What code could possibly be that prevents a 12 power vent?

Only problem with that is that it will pull smoke or any light grease to your ceiling. If you have a hood vent at home you can look at the filter, that is what would be pulled to your ceiling location. Not good.
