And for another point to consider. You might think differently if you have a CO detector with a digital readout. The only time it has gone off in any of our RV's is when the oven was on and no ventilation.

I do have a digital readout CO detector and the amount of Carbon Monoxide generated by the oven is scary. Probably why they have a warning about using the oven for "comfort heating".

If you don't want to run the fan, just leave a couple windows open slightly(1/4" to 1/2"). You will be fine.

Eaither smoke is good as long as it works. They will both give you plenty of time to get out. And make up air with anything that burns is good advice. If you use your fan, make sure you open it on the outside. Many have a latch or push pin that the fan motor cant open by itself. So if yours isnt working check that. Mine works ok. More reasons to cook outside.

If you have time and desire to tinker around theres a chance the microwave fan is 12v. You could power it from a nearby lighting circuit so its works off the battery.

I think if you run your fan at home when you cook, you'd prolly want to run you fan in your coach when you cook. Also, in my opinion it would depend on what you're cooking. Frying something.....yes, boiling something..yes to remove moisture. As mentioned earlier, a fantastic fan can also remove steam, moisture from boiling water faster and quieter than the kitchen fan. I like to run the fan when cooking bacon or sausage. That way the neighbors can smell the yummies. Now if they're Vegans.......They can smell my coffee perking.........Now, if they're Vegans that don't drink coffee........I have a larger challenge in front of me!

I used to be a big user of my oven but have slowly started to use the convection oven in the micro more and more.

It sure beats getting on the hands and knees to start the oven. The convection just takes a little getting used to but does a fine.
