EPro 19FD microwave removal?

Hello all,
So we just got back from 5 days up in the sierras in our 2019 ePro 19FD and love our little trailer.
It's only the two of us and the dog and we like smaller camping spots so the size is perfect.
The only thing we'd like more of is storage space so I'm thinking of removing the microwave, since we've never once used it, and building a couple of shelves and a door to make it a storage area.
Anyone tried this? I'm assuming the microwave is hardwired in which case I could cut and cap the wires. if it's just plugged in in the back that would be even easier.

Thoughts?

Thanks in advance..
-Rich

Our Geo Pro microwave is just plugged in and held in place with screws. It’s not hard to remove. I suspect yours us similar.

Thanks - I was wondering that. Ours has a metal surround that is screwed in, I just haven't had a chance to dig in and explore yet.

Probably a couple of notches at the sides where you can slip in a screwdriver and pop that bezel off. I haven't seen your unit, but that's typical if you cannot see the screws.

Not the 19FD, but the microwave in my previous Flagstaff was as described - a screwed-in frame piece and a regular ac plug. I suspect they do that on all of 'em.

It seems to be the custom. Water heaters (with the electric feature) are also have a cord and standard three-prong plug and are served with an outlet.

Remove face frame screws, that is screwed to the microwave itself. Pull out, unplug, youíre done.
