The range hood in the Bigfoot has the grease catching filter. I like the computer fans because the motor in our hood is noisy. cleaning the fan blades ( from the computer) might be a bit sticky. I would like to replace the big space hog we have, but I would like to add a filter before the fans.

Hi all I just thought that a 1/2 in thick piece of foam cut to the size of the computer fans would be a perfect filter. I am going to get going on a replacement. Thank Donna.

Later Kenny

Jared,
I had a opening window installed in lieu of the hood, smartest change I made. Lets in light and air but no rain and with the ceiling fan there is plenty of ventilation.

"I know the microwave sits over the location for the stove in my camper and you loose it when the stove is installed. I also noticed in homes with gas ranges that the microwave is not over the stove like so many newer homes with electric ranges. When asked a contractor told me building code is 18 in clearance for electric cook top and 30 in for gas cook top."

I've never had anything but gas stoves and all my microwaves have been above it. Must be a Florida code.

All I can think if cleaning a vent is messy, what about the bottom of the cabinets, rat fur or ensolite, etc. That grease is going somewhere...

I have a stove vent and a kitchen window, but the window is over the sink not the stove. Although I do like Greg's solution!

I think I'll put one back in, I'll have to think on what it'll be. I have three burners, so it's maybe best to use one that sticks out again. A new white one is only $70.

Just be sure to check the dimensions. I know you know that... but typically RV range hoods are smaller all the way around. AND, they vent out the back, not the top.

Here's a really nice one:

New 22" RV Boat Sloped Ductless Range Hood Stainless Steel | eBay

I just saw that it's ductless but you could vent it out the back.

Vintage Strawsine Range Hood Avacado Color 12 Volt | eBay
I do some borderline winter camping in mine and found that proper, or at least decent, ventilation requires most windows or doors open. Remember those fumes can KILL you, so even low or agreeable doses are not good. With that much vent any heat you've stored up is gone. So when I saw this avacado one, to match my fridge and range, pop up on ebay right when I started looking, I knew it would be a good investment(of $10!). I'm hoping it will make the whole cooking experience safer and warmer.

Never bumped my head. Never had any trouble cleaning range hood with 409. Don't have a porthole over sink. Don't have what it takes to create a problem for myself where none exists. Now if this was about the average square footage of food prep space in most of these trailers, I'd be ready to scramble an egg. I've got 2' between sink and three-burner range top. Scamps with sink across aisle from cooktop also have two useful counter areas. I am amazed that so many marques can't provide a place to set down a saucepan on a 17 to 21' platform!

The range hood is right in front of my face, it's hard to even see the stove.
