Original microwave in 2007 27' Safari SE FB

Anyone know what the original microwave would have been in the 2007 Sarari - 27', FB SE. I have an empty pull out shelf with cutouts for feet, but I don't know what will fit. Thanks!

The brand name was Tappan - the model I don't know. Normally the microwave only comes on models with the propane oven. If you have a convection microwave under your burners - congratulations, you have extra cupboard space. The downside is that you can't bake in your oven without an electrical hookup or a hefty generator. Ok, you CAN dutch oven cook over a charcoal fire outside.

If you have a conventional propane oven, something happened to the Tappan microwave. It's very small - designed for popcorn and warming water/coffee. I believe I saw it in a marine catalog somewhere.

Call the factory in the morning, they can tell you the model.

So... you found a used 27 FB. I'm impressed, very few people seem to be letting go of them.


Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.

Ours has a Tappan 5030B. The B indicates the color. [B]lack, [W]hite or [S]ilver.

It's only 550 watts so don't expect too much from it.

I have the same thing and it isn't good for anything but warming. It won't even pop popcorn. Someday we will replace it.

I would try to find a good quality microwave small enough to fit in that space. Or, you might get a small microwave for your counter top (I know there isn't much room). Reclaiming the space in microwave drawer for more pantry or storage would be nice.

We have a 2008 International FB and we have the microwave but it has come loose from the shelf. We bought it used, also. How can we find the little rubber knobs that fit in the holes on the shelf and the screw goes through the knobs/washers? It does make popcorn, but allow twice as long or so.
