I climbed onto the roof of my 2013 trailer and removed the cover from the Dometic. The label says MFG# 651816C851C0 and Product number 991762761. According to Airstream it is a 15,000 BTU heat pump. This different from lsbrodsky MFG# (6815xxx) though maybe it was an accidental transpose of two characters. Still the photographs posted compared exactly to what I saw on my AC. Very little room inside the metal electrical enclosure.

The fan area does have some room however I wonder about impacts to air flow and temperature impacts to the Micro-Air components. Whereas the existing metal electrical enclosure is outside the operating part of the machine, the other areas probably get real hot, cold, or humid depending upon in AC mode or Heat Pump mode. Further environmental conditions probably make the fan area damp at times. So if I decide to go this route I'll probably just follow lsbrodsky's example and cram it into the existing tight fitting electrical enclosure.

Yes, I got the numbers wrong, sorry. I think the fan takes return air from inside the trailer, pushes it over the coils, and then pushes it through the vents in the trailer. I cannot see any condition in the fan enclosure that would be worse than in the electrical enclosure, especially since Micro-Air sells the 364 in a watertight box. You can attempt what I did, but if I had to do it all over again, I would buy and install the 364, not the 366. You will never fit the 364 in the electrical enclosure.

My unit is a Briskair II and there is plenty of room in the unit.

Well, I got my 366 installed today in a Penguin low profile 13.5K. Tight fir but works well, but I agree with Larry (above). The electrical box is just too small to easily install a 366. Spend the extra money and get the gray sealed unit, drill a hole in the case, install a grommet and mount the MicroAir outside the electrical box in the fan area..

EasyStart Installation Report on Airstream & Dometic Penguin II 13.5k & 15k

Hi again everyone. Although most of the discussion here has been about the EasyStart 366, there was some question about whether or not the EasyStart 364 could be made to fit into the Dometic Penguin II units. In another thread topic, I just posted a detailed report about an installation we did on a 2015 27ft Airstream Eddie Bauer with dual Dometic Penguin II A/Cs. The post is available at this link. Please feel free to ask any questions in that thread.
