Question air conditioner replacement '76 Ambassador

What is the recommended replacement make/model for an Armstrong air conditioner in a 29ft 1976 Ambassador? Plus any "tips" on installation? We will be installing unit ourselves. Thanks

Are you sure you need to replace the Armstrong Unit? Those things are built like a tank, a lot of the time you will be better off repairing it. Run a Search on this board for "Armstrong" there is a lot of great information.

Thumbs up I did it

I replaced my a/c with a Dometic Penquin. Was not too difficult. I also got the drain pan for it. The drain pan you need to get from an AS dealer. The Penquin you can get any where.

I put some info about it on my website if your interested.

AC replacement

It was actually one of the easier jobs.

good luck!
