Thanks for the response. We have found that since we do not have a 12 volt microwave, we only can use it at the dock and we are not at the dock often. I only use it to heat up soup or reheat leftovers, popcorn or to defrost something that I can't wait to have sit on the deck to thaw. I did not know if there were 12 volt units available or maybe most folks have a generator to power a home unit.
Our 34 has an aft cabin....came with a cushion that filled a space forward of the bunk, traveling up the hull under that starboard, aft, outboard porthole. I removed the cushion. Since it is sort of wedge shaped (original from Cabo Rico) to comform to the hull, I really did not see us using it anywhere else. That gave me a space to mount the microwave along with an outlet close by. It has met our needs but I am always questioning if someone has a better solution. Thanks for coming back to this query.
