Airconditioner changeout

I have a 1995 34ft Classic Excella 1000 with a nonworking 13,500 Penquin airconditioner. I would like to change to a 15,000 heatpump made by Airxcel. I think that is the same as Coleman. Should I expect any problems with the changeout?

I realy do not know at this time if it has a drain pan. I only have the installation instructions here and they state that if the new unit has an optional condensate pump there must be a connection to a drain tube. I am aware that there is a drain tube with the present unit.

Airxcel roof air products are marketed under the RVP (RV Products) brand. They purchased the old Coleman brand and re-named it RVP. Their heat pump (low profile model) is marketed under the 'Polar Mach' name.

The 15K heat pump is the HP2 High Performance Heat Pump 8535. Either of these units will need the condensate pump that connects to your interior drain tube. No drip pan is required or even available.

Thank you very much for the quick and informative reply. You have helped me greatly. I will check the unit that I bought and if it does not have the optional pump I will purchase it. Again thanks very much.
