Smoke Alarm

Didn't really find any info on this searching the forums. Does anyone else have an issue with the smoke alarm? Every single time we use the stove it ends up going off? I've tried windows open, air on, fan above the stove, doesn't seem to matter. Even tried the Cool breeze fans. I'm thinking maybe its to sensitive or are they all like this?

when ours goes off, i simply go under it and blow hard at the side and that clears it.

Is it the smoke alarm or the propane alarm? (Smoke alarm will be up high, propane detector is down low)

My propane detector goes off any time you use an aerosol can in the camper.

Our smoke detector also sounds easily when cooking. We usually turn off the Fantastic Fan in the bedroom and ensure the range-hood vent is free to open with its fan on and avoid some of the alarms but they still happen.


Perhaps it's a convenient "dinner's ready."

It has just become our routine to pull the 9v as soon as the stove starts then plug it back in once we are done. I have heard someone use a shower cap to cover it up but I would be afraid i'd forgot to take it off.

Sounds like it just is what it is then, Think I will take the advice and just pull the battery before hand. Will save a lot of literal headaches, lol. Thanks guys

Yeah I think it is a fact of trailer life... I laugh around meal time when you can start hearing the "dinner bells" going off.

Hmmm... Interesting. The only time ours ever went off was when we lit the oven for the first time. But I was expecting it to, so I had the range hood running and also the fan over the island on high. Other than that, it stays quiet as we cook, toast, etc.

The only problem with the one in the lite is when we fired up the furnace for the first time, 5 AM was loud that morning...

We do not use the stove or oven.

So, no real issues with the one we have.
