Update: Fellow Member Rockwell sold me a four-button he had from days past. Just popped off the old, non-functional one; plugged in the replacement; fired up the Furnace = HEAT! All modes and adjustments work as expected. Nice end to the tale!

Within the next 12 months or so (my estimate), the revered 5-button CCC will go the way of the current 4-button CCC. They have been discontinued and availability is remaining stock on hand at Dometic. They have told me that they have ample stock (for now) and that they are working on a conversion kit for their existing roof A/C units and the new CCC.

This conversion will involve replacing the existing relay board with the new board that will work with the new CCC. This was done when the 5 replaced the 4-button units.

My point; if you now have a 5-button CCC and you intend to keep your Airstream, it would be cheap insurance to purchase a new 5-button CCC while they are still available as a spare!

I haven't replaced many 5-button units. OTOH, if I had 25 of the 4-button units I could have used them all in the last 5 years due to failure of the older CCCs. I can't speculate about the longevity of the 5-button units, just looking historically at what happened with the older units and the expense folks had to deal with to get their roof A/C operational again.

Ours has the zone control, but only one zone. I assume the zone control ones are the 5 button ones and these are the ones being discontinued. Correct?

Correct! Give that man a cigar!!!!!!!

Although you have only one zone being used, the 5-button CCC has a 4 zone capacity. So when you buy your 45' multi-million dollar Prevost coach, you too can have 4 separate heating and cooling zones (and YES, that means 4 roof A/C units!).

That's like buying a helmet and googles without the motorcycle.
