Usually a couple bolts from up top in cabinet. Remove bolts and tilt down then remove from rear bracket.

The make and model of your rig and the microwave would helpful. Generally, they are attached to a bracket that has been bolted to the rear wall. After the mounting bracket is attached the microwave is tilted and a lip on the back of the unit is positioned into a corresponding lip on the bottom of the mounting bracket. The oven is then tilted up to final position and two very long screws are placed at approx 45 degrees through the oven into the bracket. You may have to remove the filters at the bottom of the unit to see them. Caution, there may be other screws that the coach builder used to further secure the oven, check for them first, otherwise you may do damage to the cabinets. I used a thin piece of cardboard to slide between the unit and the cabinets to check. The unit is pretty heavy and awkward to handle, supporting it with a box on the counter below it helps control it. If it has an exterior vent you will have to remove that first.

I see you have an 07 DS, on my 03 DS the bottom of the cabinet directly above the microwave has to come out to access the mounting screws.

Is your microwave a 22" wide Apollo?

Mine (Sharp) had a cabinet above it and I had to remove the stapled in floor to get to two bolts that were attached to the top of it along with the long diagonal bolts on the front.

The floor is now attached with screws.

It took two of us to hold it during removal and re-installation, that baby is heavy.
