You may want to look at your circuit breakers a little closer. I have a few breakers, I do not recall the number (and the HTT is in storage). But my microwave is on a 20 amp breaker. As I recall the rest of the outlets are on a single 15 amp breaker (GFI through the bathroom’s outlet). The rest are going to things like the water heater, etc are on the other breakers.

If you breaker trips with very little load on it, or unexplainably you may have a weak breaker, that does happen periodically, and then just replace it with a similar breaker.

Just a possible option, with the design of my HTT, I could easily add a second outlet to the microwave circuit and mount it under the upper the kitchen cabinets.

ABSOLUTELY do not replace a 15 amp breaker with a 20 amp breaker! Sometimes I run an extension cord through a small opening under my slide out. When I need the extra power I plug in to it, when I am done, coil up the cord and store it under the sofa.
