I would be ok with the oven if they could get the micro installed and it looks like it's not a botched aftermarket install. I figure you gain an oven but lose a drawer. Eh I could settle for that.

On my 2015 3010ds, I had the convection oven installed at the dealer since I actually wanted both the convection and the gas oven. It's an easy swap as long as you don't mind keeping the gas oven too.

Convection Micro

We have a 2009 Lexington 300GTS which we moved into full time in May of 2013. The unit came with an Apollo 1/2 time microwave/convection oven. I have no reason to believe the oven wasn't original equipment. The oven itself is 21" wide by 11 1/2" high. (Depth doesn't matter). With the trim kit it is 23 1/2" W. x 17 H. This unit is 1800 watts and all stainless. We have lived in our motorhome for every day and night since May 21, 2013. So, you can imagine the use this unit has gotten. I bake bread and pastries in it regularly. I make our morning coffee with it. Heat, reheat, steam. Until the magnetron on the micro side finally went this month, I hardly ever used the burners on my range. (I do most of my actual cooking outside.)

I have ordered another Apollo from the manufacturer in Florida. They are made to order so it will take 3 weeks. It cost just under $400 and I think this one is about 1700 watts. You might want to Google the Apollo.

The only problem I ever had was the plastic 12 prong electrical connection from the control panel to the oven itself came loose. I put a little dielectric grease in the fittings and pushed it back together. No other problem.

Thanks for everyone's ideals and opinions, they have really helped. The dealer what's the swap the present microwave, for a convention. That would work for us, but I want to make sure that the finished product is exactly like, inside and out, what should have been order. I tried calling Forest River Sunseeker sales and service numbers, but just got a recording. I then sent an email to them. I want to verify what the make & model numbers for the convection microwave are, so if the dealer wants to replace it, I get what was originally to be installed. "Not that I don't trust the salesman" Ha Ha. Will keep you informed what happens.
