Microwave vent mod for 34RLSA?

Has anyone done a microwave vent modification to their 34RLSA so that the microwave vents to the outside? I have seen a description of this modification on a 36CKTS, and I know that there are some issues you have to be aware of on that model. Just want to see if there is anything to watch out for when cutting the holes for the 34RLSA. Thanks in advance for any info!

Hummnn ... 3 SOB's and current Silverback ... all vented to outside. Anyways, look at the outside of your fiver on a cool Fall morning and you'll see outlines of where the wall studs are in the dew. You'll also have to uncover a flap or reposition the fan housing on the microwave itself to allow it to vent to the outside depending on brand.

Don't worry about cutting a hole in camper, I cut a hole in camper to install my washer/dryer and cut right through a stud. Cedar Creek campers are glued together so cutting a stud is no big deal

On my microwave the blower blew to the inside, I dropped the microwave and turned the motor around and now it blows outside and I leave the vent flap open. The vent is to high up for me to close the flap.

Sometimes you read a reply and just sit there with a blank look on your face just wondering and wondering and visualizing and ..... then read it again just to be sure.

I just measured it twice and then I measured it twice again. My first Cedar Creek had a diagram that you place on the wall behind the microwave and then make the cut. This Cedar Creek did not have anything showing where to cut the hole for the vent where the washer/dryer was going, I think the factory knew If anyone installed a washer/dryer in that closet they would have to cut through a stud to put the vent in. Once I cut the hole I knew it really didn't matter all that much, the way the Cedar Creek is glued together it really doesn't matter if you cut a stud

Microwave vent-a-hood not vented

I don't want to hijack your thread, but I am interested in your subject. I have a 2017 Windjammer 3029W, it's been great so far (about 5,000 miles on it) but the microwave hood just blows air thru a small filter. It is not vented to outside, and I don't see any way it can be modified.

Is there any way this can be fixed? We haven't done much inside cooking so far, but intend to as weather cools. Thanks for any input.
