microwave in a 66 safari?

we were told that the wiring in the 66 safari is aluminum and we have to be careful what we ran from it . . . we want to install a microwave and they said to run it for about 7 minutes and then feel the outlet cover to see if it was hot. i am driving 3 hours to pick it up tomorrow.
Does anyone have anything to ad to what they said about the load. I can see having a coffee maker and the microwave going at the same time "ahh, can't wait to wake up for the first time in my airstream!!

Please tell me where you got those hubcaps!!!

I also have a 66 Safari (don't you just love the irreplaceable windows?!) but lost a hubcap on the drag home with it from the PO. I still have one and husband refuses to make the drive again to look for the other - darn!!!

Also - mine doesn't have that strange looking cover by the front door - what does that cover up?
Mine just has two holes with some star-like covers. One looks like it might be an intake the other an out-take (?).

Thanks for ANY leads on those hubs!

Strange shroud

I believe the strange shroud is an ad-on to cover the furnace in/outlets as the outlet can get pretty hot.Maybe the PO had little kids?!
My '67 doesn't have one and my hubcaps are baby moon types.
The Safaris DO have aluminum wiring.

"If aluminum isn't magnetic- why am I so attracted to to it?"

sorry i didn't answer your other question. it is the heater (that does't work) --the new ones have a tiny tiny cover---a fraction of the size.
