        Yes, you can use any microwave that will fit. We replaced our OTR microwave with a regular GE microwave. We have regular sized appliances in our camper so a 30″ microwave fit perfectly and was easy to install.

            We live FT in our RV. Have a compact Whirlpool stackable washer/dryer. It’s 23.875″ wide. The dryer is 120v so it plugs right in to a standard outlet. It does take longer to run a dry cycle than a 240v. ALso its vented, somethign to keep in mind in your setup. There are ventless models if you cant vent but they typically take even longer to dry and produce more humidity.

            All in all, we are happy with the brand and set up.

                We full time so a good mattress is important to us. We decided on a ghostbed mattress and we love it. We got the short queen, 10″ one.

                    I live FT in my RV. I can’t even count the number of times I’ve been on the roof with no issues. BUt like Tory said, it depends. Let us know the make/model and we can help you figure it out if need be.

                            I’d say that’s why I prefer boondocking but even that can be overly packed sometimes

                                Check the water heater bypass valve and make sure it is closed. As for the sink, follow the line from the sink to the tank. Check for valves, kinks, leaks, etc. RV plumbing systems are pretty basic. You could also check the aerator at the kitchen faucet as they do get clogged, but I doubt that’s it since it’s a new TT.

                                        I’ve been saved from low power at campgrounds at least twice that i can remember. The damage that would have caused would far outweigh the cost of getting a surge protector with epo

                                                Or upgrade to lithium and not worry about corrosion

                                                    If you’ve got a lot, which it sounds like, vacuum them up and empty the vacuum in an outside garbage.
