We have an 04 Dutchstar with the GE Spacemaker microwave/convection oven combination. If we use our Fantastic Fans or, if the wind is blowing against the side where the oven is located, we get a considerable amount of air entering through the range hood vents. Does anyone know if there is supposed to be a vent flap in the wall to stop this from happening? I have ask to have it checked when getting other warranty work done but, they always overlook it and I forget to ask when I pick up the coach.
Thanks for the help,
Harold

Harold, there may indeed be a flap there because, we have never had any noticable air come thru the hood vent and we also have the Fantastic Fan near the mircowave/convection oven, did you try to contact the Newmar Customer Service to verify the idea of a flap one way or other, being there? Ed.S

Thanks for the reply Ed. I haven't contacted Newmar but, I will next week. Sounds like we may indeed be missing a flap.
Thanks again,
Harold

On my Kountry Star the vent for the Convection/Micro is in the roof. There is a dome cover over the vent. As far as I can tell there is not a flapper on the vent and I do not get air comming down through the vent.

On a 99 MA I had a wall vent for micro an it did have a plastic tab so you could lock vent shut, you could operate tab with your awning rod. Most of us now have vent to roof for micro. No air coming down vent like CAD-MAN says also. ---"007"
