Microwave help

We bought a 2019 19 foot and did not get the microwave
And now we want to add one. Is there a kit I can buy to mount one. That looks lime the factory one.

I believe the ETI installed microwave is .7 cubic feet. Several different models are sold at Walmart. Depending on where you are going to install it, you may have to do some electrical wiring if you need an outlet to power it. ETI uses small brackets to hold it in place. You could probably order two from ETI, fabricate something yourself, or figure a way to keep it from bouncing around when towing. If you do install one, remove the revolving glass plate when traveling.

What a long strange trip itís been!

I purchased my own microwave and installed it in our 2019 19.
Here is a link to what I did.
So many modifications...so little time.

There is already a 120v plug inside the cabinet, just insert plug in a small microwave and use it. Shut the door to keep it inside for travel.
Due to the pandemic, my life now exists of only 3 days, yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Everything else has been forgotten!

I installed a Panasonic Genius Prestige NN-SD372S Microwave Oven in my 21 to replace the stock microwave that had a burnt out lamp (don't ask). Thanks Tom (tif-texas) for the suggestion

The advantage of the Panasonic Prestige microwave is it is an inverter type. It is a 950 watt microwave, but if you turn down the power it actually draws less. I've had it as low as 300 watts. Handy if your batteries are down when dry camping. It also does a better job of defrosting than a standard microwave b because the low power doesn't tend to burn or cook the edges of food.

You do have to trim about 3/4" off the width of the microwave cabinet, and add your own (or use the old ones) brackets to hold it in place. Be careful drilling the holes for the pop rivets - there are nasty voltages inside and parts that wouldn't like a drill bit. Same with the metal chips left after drilling. I removed the microwave metal shell to do mine.
