Advent Microwave

The Advent microwave in my 2013 Forest River Surveyor 26' has stopped heating. I just called Advent(ASA Electronics, 888 283-7374) and asked about recommendations. Not surprisingly I was told to contact Camping World for a replacement. Said that they, CW, had a Dometic unit that would fit.

My question for you readers, is this the "best" suggestion?

Thanks for you opinions, FF

Any microwave will work, look at Walmart.

I guess one concern of mine is that the Advent has a mounting "fascia" as part of the unit and you can just slide in the unit and screw the fascia directly to the cabinet.

I have not looked at any other microwaves as how to secure them into the microwave opening. Installing wooden trim to hide the opening around the unit shouldn't be very difficult.

More suggestions, please.

It appears that there is not much new info coming my way on this matter. I guess I will ask a different question and see how it goes.

Is there any particular make/model of microwave that I should look at for a replacement? Does it matter that the usage is in a travel trailer versus sitting on a shelf in a house? A cheap Wal Mart unit?

Thanks to all. FF

I just measured the size of my existing unit when I needed to change it out and found one that matched in size. The "fascia" on mine also allowed for some difference.
