Anyone have a recommendation on a replacement?

We just cover ours with a plastic shower cap when we cook and take it off when we are done. Elastic bowl covers should also work.
As far as replacements go we replaced ours with a Kidde PI9010 dual sensor as it detects more potential fire types than the one our TT came with. It also has a hush function that overrides the alarm for 15 minutes. While it is not RV certified I talked with Kidde and all of the operation ranges and environment requirements are the same as the basic detector they sell as RV certified. Although they didn't say this directly, I got the impression the reason they didn't have more RV certified models was just a cost issue as opposed to an operational/safety thing. The only fire safety improvement I have left to do is mount a carbon monoxide detector in the upper area over our bed. The one our trailer came with is in the LP gas detector which is too low to be of use.
