to avoid kinking. Avoid 90° turns.
Determine vent length.
The maximum length of the exhaust system depends upon:
The type of vent (rigid metal or flexible metal).

Type of hood.
hood styles are shown here.

terminate beneath the mobile home and must not be connected
to any other duct, vent or chimney.
