Relocate microwave

Seeings how the microwaves are always 8' high (I swear they are) I m a shorty and cannot see into them. I would like to get a convection microwave and put it under the range. There is a cabinet there that might accommodate it with some modification, to facilitate heat, etc. I would then use the wall cabinet for storage. Oh, yeah, while I'm at it I'd love to take out range and put in 2, yep 2, induction burners. Is this asking too much?

Depends on your skill level, or how much $$ you have to pay someone else to do it.

I've seen how to sites and videos about replacing the propane range with an induction cooktop (2, or 3 burner).

Moving the microwave would be even easier as you don't have a propane line to plug, just a box to fit somewhere and plug in.

I agree... If it'll fit in the spot you've got picked out: easy-peasey!
Let us know how this project works out; good luck!

Having owned a 2015 Four Winds 22 I can tell you once you pull the microwave, there are many wires and cables terminating and crossing under and behind the area. Electrical 120v and 12v plus TV cables you'll have to deal with. For example your roof top antenna enters there as well. Good luck with the project.

Isn't that the part that makes these projects fun??
They're not obstacles to success: they're just challenges!

Ours is under the stovetop, which works ok, but is sometimes hard to set, as its located in an area that has a low light level. I'm going to rig some sort of light that will illuminate the control panel, just haven't settled on exactly what as of yet.

Ours is up so high that The Missus can't even reach it...
This project has definitely grabbed my attention!

That was a problem we had in our former Bus, it was so high, you virtually needed a stepladder to use it. Now we have almost the other extreme, its pretty, low, but I think lighting the front if it will make it a lot easier to use, certainly a lot easier to see the control panel.
