Through-Wall Range Exhaust Modification — Opinions, Please

Trying not to hijack another Member’s thread about adding a vent hood in their RV, I thought I should post a new thread to get opinions on this idea. This is a cut and paste of my post in the other thread:

I’ve always wondered if one of these could be installed on the side wall of an RV as a range exhaust fan, just like the old-fashioned through-wall fans that used to be installed in kitchens years ago — the ones that had one short pull chain to turn them on and off and another to open the outside cover. I still see some survivors in old homes I go into with brand new kitchens. The old through-wall fans can really pull some CFMs out of the kitchen — much more than any non-commercial range hood that I have ever seen. Has anybody ever thought of doing this?

Would it work?

Hmmm ! I can't see why you wouldn't be able to mount it in the wall, Probably can send them a message and find out for sure.
