Vents on awning (right) side

I have noticed that with the kitchen on the entry side of travel trailers that they put the ventilation for the appliances/heater on the side that one would sit when outside. Has anyone experienced any issues with this configuration. I am thinking like added heat blowing on yourself. Currently my stuff is on the opposite side.

My stove is on the curb side of the trailer, so the vent is on that side too. I have not had any problems with the vent being under the awning.

No I am NOT retired. I work full time.:D

Same here. Kitchen is in slide on the entry/awning side, with vents. Heat rises, and is not noticeable when sitting outside.

The tiny fans they put on the range hood don't have the oompf to blow air much farther than about 10" past the outlet. Not an issue.

I've heard it blowing, but never felt it, sitting almost right next to it.

It benefits me because while sitting under the awning I can look at the vent and see that I forgot to unclip the little locking tabs or that we forgot to shut it off after cooking! So far no issues having it there.
