At the risk of offering a solution for a problem no one else has
, I present the following ...
Our new 27' FC is equipped with a nice microwave. The only problem has been that whenever we towed our AS on bumpy roads the microwave would bounce out of the dimples in the drawer is was mounted on. Sometimes we found it almost completely slid off its tray and resting in the back of the compartment. Not good!
I tried 3M double backed foam tape, but it wasn't strong enough to hold the microwave in place. I hit on this simple solution that seems to have worked.
Along the front edge of the microwave bottom there are two 5/16" holes in the "feet" that are supposed to sit in the drilled out depressions in the drawer. There are no such holes in the two rear "feet."
1. I carefully drilled--a brad point drill is best--a 5/16 hole in the center of the two depressions that align with the feet with holes described above. If you try this, it's really
important that you center the drilled holes carefully.
2. I then cut two pieces of 5/16 round wood dowel; I actually used pre-made fluted pegs available at ACE Hardware. Cut to length, they are long enough to extend through the thickness of the drawer and up into the feet holes about 1/4 to 3/8 inch. I then slopped a lot of good wood glue--my hobby is making furniture--and glued the dowels into place.
3. After a couple hours, or over night if you wish, use sand paper to round the top and put a slight taper on the dowels. Try lowering the microwave onto the dowel pins. It may take a few iterations of sanding to achieve alignment and get a reasonably snug fit. Not too snug; you may want to remove the microwave sometime for cleaning or repair.
4. I then lined the bottom of the microwave with six or eight small sticky-backed felt pads to minimize rattling.
So far, it's working and I now have one less irritant to ruin my quality time with our Airstream... Hope this helps some of you out there.
