And of it does have an outside vent, make sure its open. I have to open it with my hand , otherwise the fan can not push it open. Some have slide locks i think , mine has rubber push tabs.

You will appreciate all that warm air if it gets cool outside. I just avoid using the convection when it's hot out. Use it all the time when it's cold. I don't think the convection ovens are ever vented outside. They work by circulating hot air. They wouldn't want that mixing with outside air coming in a vent. It would make temperature regulation a problem.

My trailer AC already has a difficult time keeping up with the heat but the convection oven dumping all the hot fan exhaust into the cabin makes it particularly rough and doesn't make sense to me.Is this what it is supposed to do?

Super Dave,
Vent it to the outside if possible ... or don't cook inside in hot weather.

Most of the convection/microwaves are made so they can be set up to either recirculate or exhaust externally (I've installed several of them). You could get the external exhaust kit, move the existing baffle plate (or make a new one if necessary), see if there are any frame members in the cut-out area, and convert yours to external exhaust. I gave a broken one to my son-in law. It was set up for external venting. He repaired the oven and installed it in their house which was not set up for external venting. He had no problem switching the oven from external back to internal. It's just a matter of cover up one hole vs. another.

Hot weather; it’s why God gave us bbq grills and outdoor kitchens!

The ac in our sticks’n’ bricks gave up the fight a month ago and the replacement has been on back order since June 10. We are using that backyard bbq and might well spend tonight in the camper.

And it’s only been 91 here. Those poor folks in the pacific north west . . . .

Yes, that must have been some Bean Counters cost cutting to do away with the external exhaust vent. Pretty stupid if you ask me since most campers are only used in warm to hot weather.

I am 100% behind using the bbq and smoker but if I'm grilling burgers, give me the secret to baking the french fries cuz burgers aren't burgers without the fries and onion rings.

Not sure your AC could keep up if you are blowing all your cooled air out anyway, hot air would have to come through the cracks to replace the cold air you are blowing out.
Yes, the oven is meant to exhaust behind the stove and the stove to be exhausted out the hood vent. Somewhere manufacturers lost their way.
If you cook a lot then it would be good to add a vent hood that blows outside so the trailer does not smell like food, or that grease does not stick to every surface inside.
Easy to just not use the oven except for sock storage when it is hot.
Sorry, camping involves some compromise.

In our motorhome, the combination Microwave/Convection oven/fan vents outside and for the most part, I think that's a better system. I'm sure it's cheaper to vent it inside, and that's probably the manufacturer's reason for doing so. Your rig is quite a bit newer than ours, so I'm sure that in that time manufacturer's have found ways to build 'em cheaper in such a way that people won't find out about it until after they've bought 'em. That's just one of the ways they getcha! LOL

I can tell you this, if you ever decide to take it down to take a closer look, I highly recommend you have another STRONG set of arms available to assist you. The units are pretty heavy, but coupled with that is that they're bulky and it's hard to get a good hold on things while you're trying to loosen & remove screws.

Good Luck,
