Contoure Microwave

Today the microwave came and is already installed. It is a .7 cubic foot model but installed with minimal modifications. I added a board to the top of the opening to shorten the opening enough for the top screws to have something to attach to. The cover still covered everything well. Quick and easy mod.

Very nice. Thanks for sharing.

That looks great. We didn’t get the Microwave with our 5.0. Thinking about adding one now. What model is that?

We have the RCA microwave that ETI was installing in 2019 in our e21. We did not get the oven and I have thought about installing a new Microwave/convection oven combo in the current microwave compartment to the right of the refrigerator, is this the reason for the install in your trailer? Looks great BTW

After looking on the Contoure website, I think the 0.7 cubic foot model that the OP installed is just a straight microwave, not a convection unit.

I'm also interested to find out if smaller convection/microwave models exist that will fit in the microwave cabinet area (above the fridge in an E19)....rather than only under the cooktop like the model now offered through ETI.

This might help...see posts #57, 63 & 64.

It appears a few owners were able to get the space above the refrigerator in a 19 enlarged to accommodate a Contoure RV-190S-CON.

Isn’t a convection microwave an issue with heat in the stock location ?
