OTR Vent Door

We just bought a NEW 2013 Sandpiper. Could you advise on how the heck to get the over range vent door, on the outside of coach, open. It is not like the old ones. Appreciate your response. We are newbies on this sight.

Hello, There are two little plastic clips inside the vent. Just slide them to open the external flapper.

I am familiar with that style, however, this one doesn't have that. I have owned the style you are talking about, this is totally different. Thanks for the input, and anything else you can come up with.

Have owned them like that in the past, but this one is totally different. So appreciate the response and welcome anymore regarding this issue. Guess I'll have to call the dealer AGAIN.

You can also take the filter or screen out from your range hood and push it open with your hand, thats how i opened ours.

Ours is the newer door and was hard to open when new too but the clips do get easier to open with time.
