Yes makes perfect sence Paramedic ... A slight off topic change although still related. Does anyone know if covers are available for what I think are the round microwave vents that are located above the fridge top vent ? I have what can only be described as a gale force icy blast coming from the cupboard above the microwave !

Regards Niall.

I intend to get replacement covers but may not use the top cover - not sure it makes sense to do so.

They look like a good fix Peter .... I’ll measure to check for size.
Thank you   Niall.

I had assumed that - given the way things work nowadays where everything is sold in packages - it wouldn’t be possible to buy them separately.  I now see that it is possible - thanks.  Now just need to find somewhere that sells them that doesn’t charge extra postage for Scotland sensored1

The link in my post seems to have come out wrong, some thing I was looking up earlier. This is a proper link.

Almost as important is the direction of the wind on the van. If blowing directly on the van side it can choke the vents and prevent flow. An awning obviously has an effect as would a skirt if opposite the wind. The "cleanest" direction is nose or tail to the wind.
