3607 Microwave to Oven Swap

Postby swodog6289 » June 17th, 2014, 3:57 pm

Yes, more questions......

Has anyone swapped out the oven for a microwave set up?

How tough is the job? Can it convert back if required?

Do you get more use from the microwave than the oven?

For me a microwave is more useful and the galley just isn't very roomy for a microwave but I've seen pictures of a swap.

What about a convection oven/microwave combo? Later models came with these combo units. My 506 came with a Sharp carousel micro/oven combo that just died. I replaced it with a Franklin Chef unit. My kids baked cookies on the weekend, these things work great - best of both worlds and great space utilization.

Hello,
I just pulled my stove/oven and replaced it with a Dometic convection microwave from camping world. I was swapping out the countertop so it was not too big of a deal to me. Looks ways better and now I have more countertop space. We bought a hot plate in case we ever want a burner, but honestly we did not use one all last year.
Thanks,
Steve

Thanks for the info. What's funny is we use the stove more for counter space too.

I was not looking forward to the swap but it was way easier than I expected. If I get a chance, I'll take some pics this weekend. The microwave fit perfectly where the stove was. The one from camping world has a vented aluminum plate that surrounds it so it can be mounted underneath the counter top.
Thanks,
Steve
