Bad News is, it won't even run the microwave in the trailer on half power! Or full power.

Note: microwaves, in general, don't really have a "half power" setting. Instead they have a "full power, but only every other second" setting. (Not sure if the time interval is really one second or not.)

Microwaves heat very little other than water; the heat needs time to spread from the water molecules into other molecules. Therefore, one minute at "half power" and 30 consecutive seconds at full power are NOT the same.
