We took our new Bambi for its first trip last weekend to a nice state park just south of Sarasota, Florida. Our only problem was the smoke detector. It would go off simultaneously with the gas stove burners igniting.
Has anyone else had this problem and what was the solution? My solution is just to disconnect the darn, pesky thing.
Thanks/grammercies for the information on this thread, a job well met. My smoke detector shrieks (quite un-nerving) when I fry sausage/bacon with both FFs/stove exhaust fan operating and windows and door open. I will give your shower cap suggestion a try. The alarm also sounded off when a voltive candle burnt out in the early AM. There was no alarm when the tea candles burnt out.

As as they say, heat/smoke rise. My 25 Safari did the same thing in the beginning. Just keep a top vent open or a side window when you use the stove. After a while it will be automatic The problem with removing the batteries or the cover is the risk of forgetting to replace them. What also happens is that the oxygen quickly gets sucked up in such small quarters, and could set off the carbon monoxide alarm.
