Need Oregon area AC service reference

I have a 76 Argosy MH. It has an Armstrong 14 unit. I want to put a Penguin 15000BTU/Heat pump in there. I can't seem to find anyone who has one in stock. I'm also concerned that I can't find a service department who knows how to work on the MH. I believe it's the original unit so there is some work that needs to be done to make a new unit work. Guess they hate the round top...

Anyone have a service contact in OR or WA or Idaho that will do a good job? I will be driving back to Texas so anywhere between OR and TX let me know.

Should I try to get the Armstrong fixed? It blows air, but no compressor sound.

Thoughts on the 15K hot/cool Penguin model?

Airstream Adventures Northwest is just south of Portland in Milwaukie (still in the Portland Metro area). I have never needed to use them for service, but they are really nice, so you might want to give them a call.

Good luck, and have a great trip!

Try Laurahurst Heating and air conditioning. These folks are great to deal with. They are on around 50th and Burnside in Portland. They deal with MOST RV heating, Refer, Air conditioning.
