Default Looking for replacement external stove vent

2011 18ft funfinder, the stove is a 'suburban'. Cruzer RV thought they had one, but it sits to low in the existing opening, image of my old one attached.

They're available on Amazon. You can even just buy the flap. I made on out of sheet aluminum and a piano hinge.

I made one out of a piece of flashing. I folded it over a sturdy wire, loose enough to be able to slide the wire back out. Then I drilled a hole on either side of the plastic housing. I put the cover over the hole, slipped the wire through one side of the housing, through the metal cover, then out the other side. I then bent each end of the wire so it couldn't pull loose. Ta Dah - simple economical fix!

You can even use the existing turn buttons to hold it while traveling (if you remember)

Default Fabricate the Flap

Hi - I replaced the full vent cover with one from Amazon and it wan't long before an end on the replacement flap broke like the original!

I repaired the broken flap with a piece of coat hanger wire (it was stiff enough and good diameter) attached with white duct tape. The wire is attached to the TOP of the flap, not the side, so that it swings freely. The fabricated part/duct tape is hidden.

When replacing the flap, purchased or fabricated, be sure to remove the screws at the bottom outside of the cover and use the hinges to swing up the cover. Replacement of the flap is much easier this way.
