Congratulations on your purchase.
I'll make an observation based on my unit.
I have an '87 MH, and the space behind the fridge is necessary for cooling air over the fridge coils, so I don't think you would want to compromise the fridge cooling by invading that space with the back of a microwave.
I know that there are others of that vintage with a microwave installed.
You probably would want to wire in a switch of some sort so that you will not be able to run the AC and the microwave at the same time. This is what was done at the factory to avoid overloading the 30 amp service.
