A few year ago there was a post on here about somebody hooking a rod up the the outside damper on their range hood so they could open or close it from the inside. I have searched but can't seem to find it now. Does anybody recall it or have any pictures of it. My damper is pretty high on the coach and I always forget to latch it and I have lost my second one now.

Thanks

I see nobody responded yet. Hopefully someone will.

If not shoot me a PM as a reminder after your posting is removed from newest postings.

I think I have it saved in my computer, have to find. And nowhere computer right now, only phone

That's pretty close to what I was looking for. Thank You for that @IAMICHABOD. Does anyone else have any pics?

Thanks.

Thanks.

There have been a few threads- the two I used
wnjj's thread using 1/4 turn latches
KKELLER14K's thread using rod which sounds like what described - however photobucket pics obscured
Mine also, kind of merged both ideas but P/B pics obscurred vent control

Simple choke cable would work,

One of our past mh's had a range hood that had a damper that the pressure from the exhaust fan opened it. Wind and/or driving caused it to flop opened and closed with a thumping sound. I added a manual slide to hold it closed when not in use.
