Agreed! No frying anything inside the trailer!

As you say, the hood and the Maxx Fan are two different things. I wouldn't want to get rid of either one. I think it's a good idea to keep any such basic items that come with a trailer because there is usually a good reason for them. The best use may become apparent only later.

Another option is the addition of an opening window over the sink, near the stove, natural convection pulls the bad stuff out. The maxxfan on reverse low will help push out the foul air if needed. I find this little gem and the bath window as my favorite windows, open in the rain since it is an awning type window and in the winter for fresh air and condensation fighting, open at night to create a nice breeze with the bed window open.
