Rarely use the stove so keep the vent closed. The few times I have opened it, found it easiest to push up and out on the tabs

+1, up and out makes it relatively easy, and they DO get easier with time and use.

With a rear kitchen it can suck in a lot of dust in some areas. On our Jayco the vent is on the side of the trailer so I don't worry about it. On our Sunny Brook the vent is on the rear wall and I always close it because on a gravel road it will suck a lot of dust.

You can clip the vent closed?
Wow - learn something new everyday.
Now I wonder if mine's ever been opened - the dealer never mentioned it.

Have a friend who forgot to relatch hers and it was gone by the time she got home.
We prefer running our ceiling fan instead of struggling with the vent flap.

For me part of set up and take down is to open/close the stove vent.

I heard someone say to keep all openings closed while underway. Including the roof vent over the bathroom.
The reason was the inside of the trailer would be pressurized or create negative pressure. This would cause the existing places air can get in or out to become bigger/blown out.
It could possibly cause the roof membrane to become loose from the roof sheathing(flapping around or blown up like a balloon).

I'm not sure any of this happens if you don't keep the vents closed. But it seemed possable so I keep mine shut.

Anyone hear of any actual problems caused by neg/pressure?

When you have a little trailer.. the opening of the stove hatch is mandatory

We forgot numerous times. Opening the door is not fun at 28 degrees and window openings don't cut it

And you get to listen to a shreiking alarm even if its just caused by water boiling on the stove

As a matter of fact we open all vents.
