renovation 76 argosy

Trying to remove kitchen cabinet ie furniture. Needing need to confirm my unfortunate dilemma finding the original avocado countertop is wider than door opening. So I need confirmation disassembling is required and there is no secret for removal. Tell me it is not so. Why design that way? Adds much time to removal for storage or reinstallation. Strange.

My parents had a '75 Argosy. It too had the avacodo green counter top. An Airstream/Agosy service tech told my dad that everything in the trailer was designed to come through the door, even the refrigerator.

Counter top must come off . The base cabinet should come out but might require some minor disassembly.

counter top depth

Re-measured and yes top must come off. Top 27" and door 26". Still strange that airstream design with those dimensions.

Lowe's Formica counter top blanks come in standard 25". Does anyone know if that fits original base or how to modify base or counter top?

Cabinet base needs to be modified if using Lowes type counter top. It is quite simple though. There is only one "side" of the cabinet . Remove enough of the side of the cabinet (the one where the magazine rack is ) to fit the shallower counter top . Slide the base closer to the wall. Gives a bit more floor space .
I also added a small microwave while moving things around.

microwave installation

Great location idea.

Do/did you use gfi wall plug. Or an exterior plug cover for outlet?

What watt microwave recommend? Any issue or concern about low voltage with microwave use or voltage limits if running the appliances, refrigerator on electric, etc and 13500AC on a 4000 watt generator or if with AC start up?

It seems that nothing was designed to be serviced after it was installed. Try changing out the kitchen faucets sometime. To get the furnace out of my 73 Argosy 24 the shelf above the furnace must be removed.

If you put a GFCI on your exterior outlet, you can use the load side and have protection. I drilled a hole in the plastic cover under the sink and used an on the wall wiring components from Home Depot. The microwave is a cheaper ,compact , Target version as I needed something small for that area . I am using a 2000 watt Yamaha generator without any problems . Of course no air conditioning
