I just finished installing this vent in our 07 Camelot -- The micro is not installed like the manual states -- The first pictures are screws that go from the side cabinets into the side of the micro -- There are 3, 5/8 th screws that go into the top -- I had metal framing in the middle, & on the bottom of the opening that had to be cut -- It is about a 3 hour job, since you have to find out where all the screws are that hold it in place -- I`m downloading 10 pictures, so will have to be in 3 post -- Bill Willard

Installing vented Convection Microwaive

While at Elite R&R in Harrisburg Oregon having some work done I had them install an outside vent that I had purchased from the Internet.

It was well worth the 3 hours of labor to remove the microwave, measure and cut the opening in the wall through 1.5 inches of plywood and fiberglass and then re-install the microwave.

Photo attached.

If you haven't done this already I highly recommend putting the project on your list.

Hello Richard, its been awhile hope you are doing fine. I am installing a new convection microwave in my Cardinal 5th wheel replacing a microwave only unit. The microwave was not vented but I want to vent the new unit out the back wall. My vent opening on the new convection microwave is 3 1/4" x 10" . I like the looks of the vent cover you used and was hoping you could tell be the duct measurement this cover will work with. Thanks for any additioanl information.

Nicely done both of you (Dr4Film and William Willard)

that would be an upgrade I would consider for my Beaver. Not sure how that would work as my convection/MW is facing 90 degrees from the side of my coach. The back is not against the wall. Seems every time I cook anything the smoke alarm goes off.

I like the idea of adding a 3rd AC unit where the fantastic fan is too. Would have to vent outside if I did that.

Continually to get good ideas and advice from this forum.

WW - I get the first 2 photo groups but can't make out what I'm looking-at in the last set, especially the final photo. Are both pics from the outside?

What mfgr did you guys use for the vent? Does it stay closed in windy conditions or going down the road?

Sorry for all the questions, but this is another 'gotta-do-it' project and I am looking for a vent that will close and stay closed when not in use. In a previous coach that had a microwave vent, I finally had to tape it shut because it was always flopping and making noise.

By the way, nice job!

Thanks!

The last photos are of the outside of the vent. The first shows the actual mechanism, the last is the final cover that is seen from outside.

The stay closed great. The geometry is such that they stay closed when not in use and easily come open with the fan is turned on. They don't need a lock!

Here it is http://allrvstuff.com/ez-catalog/X325604/13/9687028

Unfortunately I cannot tell you the exact measurements of the vent opening.

The only measurements given on this vent come from the web site where I purchased it from - HERE.

Maybe a call to the vendor or a call to Elite RV in Oregon would get you the information that you need.

Good luck!

I did block off part of the front of mine. Part is for the intake so had to leave that open of course. It is about 1/2 as loud now but still noisy.

As for the latch. I added a strong magnet and glued a washer in place for it to attract to. The fan easily opens the vent and the magnet keeps it shut when not in use.

Overall dimension is 12.48" X 5.374". Perfect to replace the flapping monster that is currently the vent cover on my MH. Ordered one off EBAY this morning. There is a smaller one on EBAY also.

WHY? Why? Why, do I open my big mouth and ask about these things? Now, it's going to bug me until I get up off my butt and do it.

Thanks for the info, guys. This forum is such a great asset to us all.
