Fridge and Microwave Question ????

Hello I have a 69 Sovereign I today removed the Fridge and Wall mounted Stove and would like to put in a new a fridge and a small microwave in place of the wall mounted stove. Will there be any electrical issues of plugging these into the original outlets behind the old fridge. My unit has the original univolt converter and I believe a 20 amp box in the closet.

The time of problem will be when you are on shore power and the refig is running on 120 volts. Check the current rating on the refig and the microwave. If the combination is less that 16 amps you should be OK. Just make sure that the receptacle behind the refig is on a dedicated circuit or other things may be effecting the total current on that circuit.

The univbolt is not a consideration when dealing with 120 volt circuits.
