We have a 1994 Fleetwood Coronado and the microwave in it failed, pulled it out took some measurements and went to Wal-Mart with a tape measure. Found one a little smaller, took a little work to make some wood and metal brackets to secure it in place. Now we have one with all of the modern convinces.

My over the stove Sharp microwave-convection went out a while back. I found a replacement at Lowe's. They had to order it, but I had it in a few days.

My advice

Take the broken one out and measure the area you've got to work with rather than what you can see from the outside.

If the oven doesn't power on at all it might be just a blown fuse. It's worth cracking the case to find out. While I can't say anything about that specific model it's common the find one or more fuses on the power board.

Good luck.

X 2 on the fuse. Check it first. Had a sharp in the past blew a fuse roughly once a year

We replaced our Sharp R-1874 with another R-1874 from Best Buy last year. They had to order it, but it came in in a couple of days.

jut replaced our convection microwave yesterday. We had the Apollo 1/2 time oven, went out-(microwave would not work) Had a small appliance repair person try an fix it. No luck.They are out of business. I did really like that convection oven.
Went to rv dealer, ordered a contoure convection microwave.
We had to do quite a few adjustments. Our original one had a funny plug and receptacle.Got the conventional 3 prong receptacle, cut power to trailer, cut off old receptacle and installed new one. What a pain that was.
Had to add a wood strip to side of cabinet, as new trim kit was not a large. The new trim kit is screwed to the sides of the micro, so it was not so easy to get it all back into the cabinet.
Used the new very quiet micro function last night. Heats up way faster than the old one. Will try the convection part this weekend. Another brand available is Advent, also thru rv dealer. It came to about 370.00 total with tax here in Arizona. So far, pleased with it. Hope you find one you like.
Had tried Home depot and Lowes this past summer in Canada, they had nothing to fit our cabinet..
Good luck, Dona

I also would open it up and check the fuse if it does not have any lights or display. Easiest way is to just buy a new fuse.

We have owned 2 microwaves (not in RV) that blew them once in a while.
