With this being a common occurrence for many, why do you think that manufacturers haven't taken this to heart and simply installed a roof vent in the kitchen area to help with the venting process? I have seen this in a few higher priced RV's but not many. I suspect those that are considered full time RV's would be the ones that might have this "feature".

Seems to me that the excess moisture and heat generated in the kitchen area of any RV would be as much of a concern as say moisture issues in the bathroom?

I have contemplated having this done to ours but I guess it just hasn't become a big enough of a pain/concern to justify the work/cost of doing so.

Or, you can simply replace the smoke detector with one that has a silencing feature. You push a button and the detector won't alarm for 15 minutes.

Better still replace the ionization type smoke detector with a photo electric type. That's what we did and we haven't had an alarm since. Then move your original smoke detector to a location near the bedrooms.

Ours does the same thing - I had a small fan that we used in our tent so I put it in between the sink and the stove when cooking. It helps move the air into the vent and no more alarms.
