Replacement microwave?

Day 2 of 6 and our micro bit the dust. Best I can tell the magnetron is toast. We really miss it..lol....

Anyone replaced their micro, and if so did you go back with a Dometic? Trying to decide if there is a better aftermarket that is a direct fit.

Ours was equipped with a Panasonic, Terry, but that was back in 2000 so they might not make them any more. However, I thought I'd mention it just in case they still do. Ours is seeing its 12th camping season so I can attest to its longevity. The only thing I had to fix on it was that plastic ring with the wheels that the glass turntable sits on- it cracked. A squirt of super glue took care of that problem in minutes.

My camping buddy has a 2008 hybrid and his failed after less then a year, it was also a Dometic. Perhaps there is an issue with them?

Our micro is a High Pointe.
Not sure about this company though. The warranty card was to be sent to an address in Texas, but got returned as unknown address. Maybe their paperwork was out-of-date? The micro itself is marked as made in china, like too many things these days. We've only used it about a dozen times so far, so don't know about life span of this one.
Panasonic has a good reputation, if one of their models will fit.

Yep...ended in October.....at least it is a fairly inexpensive item compared to the rest of the appliances!

I just want to find a nice one that will fit and be trimmed out like it is currently, I don't like rigged.

Mine is a High Pointe also. It's worked well the few times I've used it.

We had a High Pointe(microwave/convection) in our 2008 Travel Supreme 5'er and it went out. Had an extended warranty but the person who tried to contact High Pointe at Texas location found out they were out of business. He replaced ours with another brand that was same size that was made to install in RVs. Just any microwave may not work because you need to be sure it has enough room for adequate ventilation. Our was a Contour brand but I don't know anything about the company. Almost all are manufactured in China or some other place OUTSIDE USA!

Well I eneded up ordering another Dometic, same model, while I was sitting at the camp site...figured it was the easiest since it already has the trim kit,etc. And as an added bonus I have an extra turntable glass...lol...

$136 shipped...didn't figure that was too bad....

Sure did miss that micro...especially with 2 kids along!

I still have one from WalMart that we used in a Class B. If mine, Hi-Point, I think) dies, I'll just use that one, frame around the opening and move on. I think I paid $45 for it. I only use it to warm coffee anyway.
