Dometic Dotr12cbmicrowave replacement

My microwave oven has gone out and I cannot find the same model, Dotr12cb, to replace it, Dometic no longer makes that unit. Dometic now sales a bigger microwave and I am conserned that the vent hole will not line up when you go from a Microwave 22in wide to a unit 29 in wide. I also need a front mount because of no overhead cabinet, has anyone run into this? If so what did you replace it with? I have a 2011 Jayco Eagle. 330rtl

Google RV microwaves. I'm sure there are other brands out there closer to your original measurements.

I have googled for a week, gone to Sears, Lowe's,
Contacted dometic, I have even called Jayco and was told they could not help and good luck. I never thought it would be this difficult to find a replacement. Please any suggestions appreciated.

Have you checked with a appliance repair outfit. There's a possibility it could be fixed. Might not be cheap but another option.

Dometic doesn't make a newer unit that's close to your dimensions?

Have you tried Highpointe. They seem to be in a lot of the newer RV's

I think Camping World sells them.

I forgot to mention that I checked campingworld first and they had a the new Dometic microwave but it actually measures width of 29 inches which kind of throws my vent out of whack.Also you have to have a cabinet access on top to mount the new dometic microwave which i do not. My present microwave mounts with a back plate and two long screws in the top front to secure it. A repair might be my only option but i hate to repair a usually throw away appliance. THANKS FOR YOUR SUGGETIONS THOUGH!!!!!

A repair might be the easiest way, but not the cheapest.

Maybe check some of these RV salvage places. Big one I think in Missouri.

Think the name was something like Colaws.

Thanks for your advice but I have had no luck finding a replacement so far, now on top of this I have had a slide out actuator go bad that has to be replaced, slide stuck in the out postion. When it rains it pours.

A lightning strike destroyed my MW. I found one at Walmart that fit right in the same hole. The side vents were not exactly in the same place so I wired a 12vdc muffin fan in the back space with a switch helping with the air flow.

Works like a champ.
