Cook stove vent

We have a 2015 Jayflight 34 RSBS. For some reason we cannot get the outside vent to open. We see the two latches but cannot get them to release. We have had a few differnt people try also. Could someone tell me how to open the vent? Thanks.

Mine are tight, extremely tight. They've gotten better. But I'm here to tell you, when I mean they are tight, they are knuckle busting, finger skinning tight. Ok, you get my drift. What I do is kind of push up and away from the RV. Again, this takes some force, there is much flexing that needs to take place before they release. Hope this helps.

These vents are a common frustration. Below is what I posted not too long ago:

The tech warned me about these, but I didn't try it until I got the trailer home.

Note that those tabs are on the moveable part of the vent, so they do move outward a very slight amount when they release.

I push the tabs (virtually) straight UP with my thumbs, both at the same time. Trying one at a time does not work for me. They feel like they are a friction fit to keep the vent closed.

On mine, when they release, there is no sound associated with the latches releasing; the vent just moves a bit outward.

Hope that made sense and helps.

Mine open fairly easily, in the same fashion oldmanAZ described - push upward and outward at the same time.

Either way, they're tight. I can't do both of mine at the same time. I have to use both thumbs on each. They're getting loser though. Don't use inside stove to often.

If you think unlatching them is tough, wait until you have to latch them closed. Ooi!

Speaking of latching. Are you supposed to latch them in tow? I always have just wondering if you have to.

I wonder, too. I haven't been latching them... because I keep forgetting to.

I never latch mine on my fiver and have never lost one. Too much trouble latching and unlatching for me. And I've been pulling RV's for over 30 years.
