No $h!t is that what those bags are for ???
I thought they were to protect the SD while being shipped !!!
I guess maybe it pays to read the destructions !!!

Replaced the original ceiling vent in the kitchen with this power fan....relocated smoke detector from kitchen to living room...We turn the fan on when cooking and no more misfiring smoke detector.
It works for us.

I disconnect each time I cook inside. Just remember to reconnect. Just not enough distance between stove and detector

Is it really a law that an RV has to have a smoke detector? At my current location, there are no regulations for private home owners. Only landlords, childcare facilities, and nursing homes are required to have smoke and CO2 detectors. No mention of RVs.

My first wife thought the smoke detector was a great cooking timer. So everything was a burnt offering.

Of course there is no law on this subject that says what you have to have in your RV. Just like no law on this subject that says what you must have in your home. However; I believe that for an RV manufacturer to claim their RV is NFPA and/or RVIA compliant there has to be smoke detectors and/or other safety items installed in accordance with those entity standards. Don't know what specifically the requirements are or if they cover all types of RV's. My RV has smoke alarms (detectors) and those association logo decals are affixed to the exterior. JMO

My wife uses it for a cooking timer. Seriously, that is very common. It seems more sensitive other detectors.
