Fitting an extractor fan outlet cover is a very easy DIY job. Many motorhomes and caravans are fitted with an extractor fan in the kitchen area. Whilst this is a useful addition to the chef’s department, most extractors also have a couple of lights built-in. This adds useful light to the cooking area.

The downside to having a kitchen extractor seems is that during times of very windy weather, the wind blows into the motorhome through the ducting. The solution is quite simple –  fit an extractor fan outlet cover over the outlet area. It is held in place with Sikaflex sealant.

During times of really windy weather, we stuff a carrier bag into the outlet cover, making the area airtight – but don’t forget to remove it before using the extractor!
