Now THAT is a cool idea!

I left my kitchen as is. A friend convinced me I would be happier with an oven than requiring hookups everywhere I go to use my microwave. The more self contained it is, the better I like it.

thanks John, this should help alot, but i couldnt see your diagram very well. What I am still wondering is how do I find/connect to the AC circuit? Is it obvious which is which. Do I have to trace that circuit through the coach?

albert,

you could just remove the interior cover of the a.c. and find the 120v wires there. i imagine the ac/micro switch could go anywhere, even on the ceiling right next to the ac itself. then a run of romex to the micro outlet would be easy if you have most of the trailer apart anyway.

Hello all: We have a micro wave convection oven factory installed on our 2006 Safari SE. We have yet to use it and need to test it out. Can I plug the factory provided 30 amp plug (which connects to the outside of the A/S into a regular extension cord (with an adapter) and then plug the 3 prong extension cord into the external 110 power from the home, which outside has a GFI switch?

Thanks for your thoughts. The thought I am having is the longer the extension cord the less power to run the microwave/oven.

Robert and Sherry

Robert and Sherry,

You can do that, no problem. The qualifier here is to use a very heavy duty extension cord, not a thin one.
If you are going to do this more often, then it's worth to buy a good construction grade 12G or 10G extension cord. It's not that you need the amperage that this gauge can carry, but your voltage drop over the length of the cord will be minimized.

Thanks UWE: I will test it out today, and I do have a heavy duty extension cord.

Beautiful setup! Love the mirrored door for hiding the appliances when they are not being used.

Our need is just a bit different

I want to replace our built in microwave with a convection/microwave combo unit to use in addition to our propane oven. I rarely use the microwave (except to store potato chips and bread in) and could really use a second oven at times, mostly when we attend rallies.

Once we get "The Tube" from back GSM Vehicles Leon will be measuring up the microwave opening and if all goes as planned we'll have the convection/micro in for the start of this years camping season.
