I hate how bacon permeates everything (ten times worse inside a trailer) so refuse to cook it inside the FaN.

These alternatives work fairly well:
- fry it at home and just warm it up with a skillet or in the microwave
- if you must cook it from raw, use a microwave bacon cooker or stick it between two pieces of paper towel

Or you can buy the pre-cooked stuff and just crisp it briefly.

If I'm just looking for bacon crumbles it's available pre-cooked and crumbled.

Or, just stop at Cracker Barrel for breakfast--our preferred method on the road😀😀😀

BACON!!! BACON BACON BACON BACON BACON BACON BACON BACON BACON BACON BACON BACON BACON BACON BACON !!!!

Love the smell, love the taste, love the crunch, YES YES YES!!!

I suppose that it does put another layer on the already coated vinyl wallpaper, but eh, nbfd.

If the lingering smell bothers you, wiping everything down with vinegar will take that bacon smell away. Vinegar not only cleans really well, it kills smells incredibly effectively, and it doesn't leave a residue behind that traps dust, dirt, and pet furs like Windex and other spray cleaners.

I like to put a tsp or two. of Lavender Essential Oil into a 32oz squirt bottle filled with Heinz White Cleaning Vinegar. Lavender makes it smell better, and Cleaning Vinegar is 6% acid instead of only 5%. That extra 1% doesn't sound like much? If you so the math, it's 20% stronger than the average 5% vinegar.

And if you still don't want to fry bacon inside, try BACON JERKY, this stuff is amazing!

Another way to fry it up in the oven, is to use a cookie sheet, and place layers of bacon down with baking parchment in between the layers. Bacon will fry evenly, not shrink as much or curl up at all.

I've also use a baking rack, (the kind used to cool cookies and other baked goods). I put the baking rack on the cookie sheet with a sheet of baking parchment over the top of the bacon. This is a great way to drain the grease off of the bacon if you want to avoid the extra calories or fat.

Found lurking at Cracker Barrel in Huntsville, Alabama, home of the Space Shuttle main engines. Every engineer in the building has one on prominent display--for obvious reasons😀😀😀

Hush Button

Hi, I haven't seen it posted here yet, but my smoke alarm has a Hush Button. They way it works is if you already know what you are cooking will set the alarm off, just push the Hush Button and the alarm will only randomly beep for a few minutes. Or if you did manage to set off your alarm, push the Hush Button and it will shut off the noise and go into the beep randomly for a few minutes.


A friend of mine and I found this great smoke alarm with a "Hush Button" and we both bought one for our RV's. Come to find out, Airstream already installed one of these in my trailer. Like me, most people don't even know that they have one.

I have a NuWave induction cooktop that I use outside on the picnic table to cook bacon or anything that will set off the smoke alarm. Ours has gone off when we try to make toast too - I usually just take it off and hide it under a pillow, but I like the idea of a shower cap. Thanks for the tip guys

My wife puts the closest fantastic fan on high and cracks the kitchen window, doesn't use the stove fan because it's so noisy. The alarm seldom goes off.

It is how I know that dinned is being cooked. Very common for us to have the smoke alarm go off at dinner.

If we are going to be in one camping spot for a couple nights or more I'll set up an outdoor kitchen with a traditional Coleman stove. We set up a large canopy to protect us from weather and sun. I like to cook outdoors because it doesn't heat the trailer up and also I'm a pretty big person and I have more room outside. I do use the oven in the trailer regularly for baking. It's a personal preference but having been a dedicated tent camper for many years maybe this is my way of keeping my ties to the old days of really being outdoors camping

We put a plastic sandwich bag over the detector temporarily and then remove it when we are done cooking. Works great just don't forget to take it away when you are done cooking

Always has been a problem when using the toaster. Small shower type cap works or as we recently have been doing, I take the alarm down off the ceiling (easy to do, just pull a locking pin and turn the unit). After breakfast I put the unit back up.
