One of the things I discovered was that underneath the front deck, behind the center bench of the U-shaped dinette, is a BUNCH of wasted space. Wasted, because it’s covered beneath a permanently affixed top surface, which I first started eyeing because that surface is clearly too thin and flimsy to support much. I realize that in regular camping concepts, it wouldn’t need to support much. But in a fulltime living situation, every single space must earn its keep.
Unless it had been changed from the original, that microwave was the same 110v type I used in my apartment kitchen! Apparently there isn’t any such thing as a true 12v microwave—they simply suck too much power for there to be much of a market for them in RVs, even though just about every new RV comes with a 110v model built in.
