We didn't either, then the little catch mechanism failed and the door flew open and the glass circle thingy crashed. Danged if the factory didn't just give us a whole new microwave! Those big thick pool noodles (two) cut just right, solve everything.

Same here. Protects the bread/buns and the turntable without adding to the clutter. I don't have a pool noodle or some other one use item to store somewhere.

I had a good dealer who warned me to take out the microwave glass before I traveled. Any bounce could throw that dish against the door and send it flying.

We just cut a square piece of toolbox liner. Place it on the roller mechanism and turn the glass carousel upside down. No problems with it ever moving. I suppose you could use shelf anti-skid lining, too.

We used a little silicone adhesive. Easy to remove and reapply as needed

Rattle and roll

We haven't had that little issue of the flying disc, yet. I come from the Tin Can Navy, destroyers, frigates, etc and if things weren't tied or welded down when the ship got to rocking and rolling they did too. You ever chased a full tool cabinet with 2 other guys and tried to not get smashed as the ship was pitching and rolling? Nope, never again... Don't mention the coke machine that wasn't welded and broke loosed. THAT was a mess.

Our microwave has made a great bread box, chip storage, oven mitts, tortilla flat place, cookies, and whatever we need to stash that needs to keep from squishing. AMAZING what you can fit into that little space. The difficulty comes when we arrive and wife/daughter ask where the "??" is and I point to the nuker. When we started tent camping as a family I got plans from a friend for a nice "chuck box" similar to the ones we used in Boy Scouts. While building it I added a minor improvement by installing a divider on the upper shelf just the right size for a loaf of bread to slide into. No more squashed bread, but that cut down on the french toast supplies a bit.

Safe travels
