Did you know you have 2 Kit exhaust hood dampers?

Well, some of you, I haven't checked out all years and models of trailers. My '07 3400 RL Kitchen exhaust hood has a spring lever release damper you have to operate when using the exhaust fan. I have been operating my fan at about 10% since it was new
Hey, no one told me, and a 6'1" I never bent down and read the sticker on the hood. I always thought the fan didn't work well..
I removed the hood to change the noisy fan out and install a quiet 'Muffin' fan, like the computers and electrical cabinets have.
While I have it out, I will install two LED light fixtures, and put in a LED 'Peanut' bulb in the stock light. I cleaned the hood real good before I started, full of grease.. because it never went out of the Monte.
When I get the lights installed, I will post pictures of that.
I ripped off the idea from the Internet. Few ideas are original.

Your rig is getting so far past a stock Montana that it's time you repainted the outside with a new name. Something like the Ozz express or ........

Ozz, we had a SOB that had an inside damper like yours and it took us years to discover. Everybody we ran into with the same brand didn't know it was there.

Yes, been there and done that. It's never too late to learn something new.

I discovered that on mine about a month ago when I replaced the outside vent cover. I saw a clip inside and pushed it out of the way and now the damper opens most of the way when the fan is on. I like the idea of the muffin fan.

Hey Ozz, where are you finding the LED replacement bulb for the hood light? I have been looking as the original gets so hot, but have not found one.

Hi Ron,
I got it on Ebay, but Mike and Kat sells them filimentfree
They are just 'Peanut' bulbs, at lease mine is.

Thanks Ozz - I got all of my LED's from Mike & Kat but did not find this one. Mine is a small appliance bulb that has a screw base. Is that the same as yours?
