I figured the vent was only used when you operate the fan, but the other day when my wife was using the microwave and I was outside, I noticed that warm air was blowing out the vent!
I too carry a small folding step stool and it worked just fine to reach the vent flap and latches.

I use the extension handle to my wash brush. The threaded end enables you to push or pull the latches with ease. The end is plastic so it won't scratch the paint.
The little tabs that it hinges on will break if you don't latch it closed when traveling.. trust me on that.

A hinged pin on the flapper is broken on mine. ---- looking for a replacement. The microwave that was in the coach was replaced with a whirlpool convection/microoven by Explore USA last year. We took over it from bank inAUGUST 2011. Only used it a couple of months since then; was in Mn.. I noticed the face of it has a hairline crack on the top of the glass (outside of door). The micrwave is aairbout an incn shorter than it's opening. I took a closer look at it just now. They apparently just slid a piece of red trim about 1/2 inch thick, 10 inch long, 1 1/2 deep along side. -- It is movable. When cooking and using vent, I can feel air in the area behind the shim coming down!!!!! WHY????

Our 2012 came with the Whirlpool. It sounds like the connection between the oven and the outside vent isn't sealed securely. As for the flapper, mine is a Heng's Range Exhaust Vent. The flapper is about 12 1/2 " L X 6" wide. Many of your RV Dealers use an RV Accessorycatalogue that they give out with their name on it. It is listed in there under part # 31-1786 or 31-1787 depending on color. It retails for about $8.
