So this model is a good choice?
I guess either of the "bottom" parts should work? I am assuming
that I want the non ducted model, and I can do without the heat strip.
I can send you the step-by-step procedure but yours will be a TON easier than mine. You will have no cutting to do. The only hassle you should have would be the removal of the old unit.
The old drain pan and the drain tube would be the only thing you may have to modify. You can use the same method I did for the drain tube modification. It is documented in my Members Photos section of the forums. There is also one other member that used a different method to modify theirs. Mine was using the 13.5k BTUh Carrier and his was using the 15k BTUh.
As for the link, that is the same price I got my A/C from Family RV Center in New Port Richey FL. If you have a larger Airstream I would recommend the 15k BTUh unit. I am not sure if the smaller unit would cool your trailer when it is really hot outside.
If you do a search for "Carrier" I am sure you will find all of the posts about this particular A/C installation.
Please feel free to post any further questions.
