couple of questions, 1985 pace arrow

Hi, i just bought my 85 pace arrow, this is my 2nd motorhome but mthe first that is mine all mine lol. I have two immediate questions I could use some help with.

1. The original magic chef microwave no longer works. I have a replacement, how difficult is it to swap them out? I tried googling and found nothing

2. My rig is nearly all original, but missing two small tv tray sized tables. Each sits on a single pedastal and is removable. Is there a good site that sells original furniture parts? Again, i tried the google, found several sites but none selling original (or close to it) furniture

Thanks!

Took my new rig out to my sister's today, she told me her 96 Georgie Boy has the same kind of little tray tables and she knows where to get them, so that mystery is solved, but I could still use some advice on the microwave. In my younger life I was pretty handy, but it has been awhile since I have done any rv tinkering and I don't want to fry anything lol.

Kind of hard to fry anything , if you unplug the 110 power before you start. Have a close look around the microwave, flashlight, mirror, see if you can determine if the unit is held down by screws , or held in place by wooden blockers; I assume given the age of the coach that it's not a range hood /vent type. Look for screws in adjacent cupboards that may hold the m/wave or those blockers in place, even false panels in cupboard sides that could be hiding the mounting hardware. If you can;t find anything yourself , try posting a picture, maybe that would jog someones memory.

I took the screws out of the trim and the thing won't budge, I don't know if it is too heavy for me or if it is stuck. Any suggestions?

okay, I got it out, there were two screws in the top of the trim piece that I couldn't see, once I removed those it came right out. The thing weighs a TON though!

Every manufacturer loves to hide screws. New m/wave will save 12>15 lbs minimum. If you get around to chnging TV,s don't try it alone, those do weigh a ton. I knocked off 40lbs by going flat screen.
Congradulations , one project down, ??? to go.
