Got a Penguin 2 AC unit. Which interior box to buy?

Got a good deal on a Penguin 2 AC unit. Model number is 640315CXX1C0. New, but a scratch n dent deal.
Did not come with the interior air distribution box.
I have researched, and feel increasingly confused on what I need to install.

Ducted or non ducted?
Manual or electronic controls?
Can I add heat strips?

Advice and knowledge please!

Does your RV have ducts in the ceiling. I doubt your 345 is ducted, so you need the non ducted ADB.

Do you want to control the unit using a wall thermostat or thermostat that is built into the bottom of the AC unit?
If you want to use a wall thermostat, then you will need to also order the Comfort Control Center thermostat and the ADB without controls and thermostat built in.
If you want the controls on the bottom of the AC unit order the ADB with the controls built into it.

Yes, you can add heat strips. Either ADB will work.

I forgot to mention:
1. If you add the wall mounted CCC thermostat you will need to run a Dometic data cable between the thermostat and the AC unit.
2. You may (I'm not sure) need an additional control module to bolt onto the AC unit.
3. You will need a 12v power supply at the AC roof opening.
4. You can control the furnace with the CCC thermostat, but you will have to extend the two blue thermostat wires to the AC roof opening.
