I am looking for a solution to replace the stove and the micro with a combo -micro+convection oven as one unit(actually does the same as the oven) and use the stove area for storage.
Any ideas?

This can be done they make microwaves in this style for campers. You can also buy a stove top with just the burners, no oven.

I did a quick internet search for microwave/convection ovens and found this site:

http://www.pplmotorhomes.com/parts/rv-stoves/rv-microwave-convection-ovens.htm. There were several sites listed that offer these products for sale.

Nice info. The micro isn't as expensive as I thought.

If you use it in place of your oven you will probably have to turn off the AC while you are running the microwave. Ours will trip the main ifhave the AC on and run the microwave for very long.Might want to check the amp draw.

Thanks

Thank you all for the helpful information.
My wife likes to cook and I like to eat...great combo...
While replacing the stove I will also have to replace the burners and put in burners that will light by electrical spark rather than with matches,any suggestions?
Thanks

They make a stove for campers with presto ignition. Were going to spend all your money. This is fun.

Atwood Black Sealed Burner 3-Burner Slide-In Cooktop. Designed just for that reason. Dyers has pretty fair price. The one offered by Campingworld has a lower BTU for the rear burners.

I know I'm kind of late to this string but we did this modification to our camper quite a few years ago. My wife kept saying that the microwave was too far over her head. I believe she just bought a convection microwave that for the house.
1. We ordered a new Atwood three burner cooktop (with piezo electric starter).
2. I pulled the old Atwood stove/cooktop combo (4 screws and a propane line?) and ended up donated it to a friend.
3. I had to move the cabinet structure under the old stove down to make room for the convection/microwave.
4. I ran a new power line from the 120 VAC panel that was about two feet away for the new setup.
5. Mounted the new Atwood stove (4 screws and the propane line).
6. Removed the old - dead microwave and deposited it in the local scrap bin, put a top on the shelf, added a door and we got more storage.

If anyone is interested we still have the setup and I might be able to find model numbers.

Personally mdbeck1, I'd love to see some photos of your completed installation.

For those of us with vertically challenged wives, the eye level Microwave is somewhat hazardous when removing hot sloshy foostuff, soup, chilli and the like. And I don't know of anyone who uses their under-range oven.

We use an induction top so our burners never get lit either, as a result a complete re-vamp is in the pipeline methinks.

Hence the request for photos, prettyplease.....

Let's see if I can make this work... A picture of the original stove.


hmmm sideways... will have to see if can fix that.

Don't see a pic of the setup in the new trailer but here's what it looked like in the old trailer before I moved it.


Please excuse the tape measure and cell phone pics. I was trying to remember the numbers while measuring the oven size.

there are two units there. the convection oven and a three burner Atwood cooktop. They are almost exactly the same size. They actually look much nicer in the new RV.

Our convection/microwave serves as a vent for the stove. How is your cooktop vented? Very nice setup though.

There's a range hood with a vent right above the cooktop (under the shelf where the microwave used to be) so I didn't add additional ventilation for the cooktop. The microwave has ventilation ports in the beauty covers on the top and bottom.

...and I use the convection oven AND the AC at the same time. I haven't had a breaker pop that I remember.
