   Hi everybody, got a question about what brand of vent hood you are using? I'm sure I would like to vent to out side. Won't be able to reach flapper on the out side. Wondering about the louvered vents? Thanks for now!!!

Where is your stove? I have mine on an island in the middle of the bus to make room for a microwave with a range vent. I added a duct from the microwave to a ceiling powered vent. I have to run the ceiling vent when I run the stove vent but one less hole in the roof.

I put a regular hood vent for a RV on mine. I use a stick to move the locks on it. You may be maybe different than me but I canít stand the flopping noise while driving down the road. I sure the louvered kind would be worse.

Ours came with the hood vented out the side with no way of closing it, so we fit something to block it on the inside and hold it on with Velcro.

I designed my kitchen with a 2 burner gas top and a microwave/convection oven above the burners (no stove).  The micro/convection oven has its own exhaust vent that picks up the burner fumes so I made a plenum that directs the exhaust out the back of the micro/convection, down a passage to the floor where it exhausts over the fuel tank bay.  I used standard size aluminum flex vent hose for a house kitchen vent. 

No hole in the roof or side of the bus.  I just put a vent screen on the discharge to the bay to keep the critters out.

I don't know anyone else that has done it this way, and the vent pulls 100% of the heat and smell out of the bus when using both burners or the microwave/convection oven.

I use a non vented hood above my stove. With the fan on, it just blows the hot air straight into the room. Then directly above the hood is a Fantastic vent. It works so well, I've repeated the same thing on my bus. I did not want any type of vent on the side wall. Good Luck, TomC

Our coach is side isle configuration with a full bathroom, 4 burner 24" Italian made stove with oven and broiler, over stove microwave with direct vent above to outside with vent facing rear so as to not act like an air scoop. We like to cook so that is why we went this way.

We just open the window behind the stove top and have a small WM fan we turn on below the cabinet above the stove/oven combo. We have a fantastic in the bath that we also turn. Works great.

I am sure someone out there has had to clean the screens on a stove hood or microwave oven, and has seen how much grease gets sucked into those filters.  Well, if you are depending on a Fantastic fan or other to suck the stove/burners greasy air out the bus you better not cook too much or your ceiling will will absorb that grease.  I have an Ozite ceiling and can't wipe it clean.  Better to to take the extra time and blow the cooking exhaust out through a hose-- I went with a floor exhaust into the fuel tank bay so no problems with greasy fumes.

--Geoff

P.S.  Did I forget to mention the smell inside the bus without proper cooking ventilation?  It sticks to the ceiling and walls and makes your bus stink after a while.
