Microwave mount

You may want to double check your microwave if it is mounted in the cabinets above the stove.

I have a Stealth 2515, and was sitting in the trailer looking around at everything (starting to prep for a trip in a couple of weeks), when I noticed the mounting plate around the microwave had a crack going between several of the vents. Looking closer, the microwave was tilted towards the back and with a little push, bounced. Taking it out, I found the microwave was being held in place about a 1/4-1/2" off the floor of the cabinet by the four screws on the front mounting plate in order for the bottom vent to clear the lip of the cabinet. Bouncy bouncy. Actually impressed with about 11K miles, that is the only "damage". I will be extending the feet on the microwave, so they are holding the weight of the unit.

Really no excuse for this, as the guy mounting it in the factory had to have someone hold it up in place in order for him to put the screws in.

I had the same darn problem. And with a lot of gravel road travel the damn thing nearly fell out. I got up in there and re mounted and reinforced everything and made it super solid. I put feet on it plus screwed in some MDF below it to give it support from below. Then I screwed in some little blocks to keep the oven from sliding forward ever again. It's not going anywhere now!
