Cold air leak by Microwave

Camping in Arcadia Fl, it got a bit chilly, down to around 60 degrees.
I discovered a significant amount of cold air coming in between the microwave and the cabinet, cannot figure what the source could be. it will get colder tonight, have always noted that the coach does not retain heat very well. Any ideas where it might be coming from, coach doesn't hold the cool very well in the summer either.

There is a gap between the microwave and the outside vent. I removed the microwave and installed foam rubber used to seal window A.C. units to which the microwave snugs up to after reinstalling it. Took care of the problem.

There is a vent outside but with the fan running, air is being pushed out at the top of the microwave so I donít think it is being vented outside. I wonder how big of a deal it is to remove the microwave?

See if you can feel air coming out the vent outside. You could just plug the vent with insulation to stay warm till it warms up.
Look in your owners manuals for a book on the microwave and a possible installation sheet/instructions.
