New Microwave?

DH added an outlet in the storage shed so that we can run the A/C and microwave while the 19H is plugged in out there. Do to an wiring err and first trying the microwave (with nothing in it) to check his wiring; we no longer have a heating microwave. Most of the time I used the space to store bread with an occasional microwave popcorn or heated water. My question is can we get a replacement at Camping World or somewhere else?

If I can remember there is a fuse in the microwave unit itself.............check that first.
Some have a self resetting fuse.
Always test an RV outlet first on polarity before plugging in the RV. The portable Progressive Surge Protector will tell you the right polarity.

There is a reason homeowners don't or maybe shouldn't do their own electrical work. I was surprised that the main circuit breaker didn't go; or the whole camper melt. He had WAY to much power on the new outlet. Might as well take the microwave popcorn out for now. Might be looking at the options for the use of that space.

Most are household microwaves. Check Home Depot, Lowes or Wally World for one that fits.

I would consider replacing with a convection microwave if you can find one to fit the space. That way you can use your gas oven for storage space instead. As Grumpy says, they are just commercial microwaves anyway. You might also consider getting one without a glass turntable. These can shift around during transit, and are prone to breakage; our platter is still in one piece, but it broke the turntable wheels underneath.

Seems like he put 220 Volts to the out let? On any electrical work you have to be familiar with the work and know what you're doing. And forget to have the proper tools.
Also when finished with a project do a test (don't take things for granted). Handy tools are a Multi-Meter and a polarity check tool. Always check CG outlets for their polarity or repaired extensions cords etc. Mistakes can be very costly or even deadly!

x2... and if you are lucky the fuse will have saved the microwave. If you pull the MW out there should be a removable panel that exposes the fuse. If the fuse is blown just make sure you replace it with the same one. Some come with solid state fuses now instead of the standard fuse link style.

Well wouldn't that just make the microwave cook things twice as fast???

Just kidding.

check the unit out first. There really is nothing special about the microwave that is in your HTT.

however, here is one on a clearance site for Adventure RV, it is a convection microwave. I have one in the stick frame house and we love it. I see they have a few in stock in, both SS, and black.

Also, there is a tool for checking the wiring, it is a receptacle tester, cost about $5-8 each, seen them for much more. Well worth the investment, I have one in the house and in the HTT.

You may want to check out some other appliances also. 220v can do some major damage to any appliances or the converter.

I replaced the mw in min last year. Got it from Walmart. I think it was a Frigidaire.
