TinLoaf,

Make sure you get the ductwork. You need that as well.

Here is the Airstream PN#s and prices: (per my invoice)

690380-10 Air Box/C. Shroud P. White $56.25
690380-11 Adapter - Duct Use w/690380-10 $15:63

Hope this helps if you want to order from Mothership or your dealer.

I love the air shower after being outside in this texas heat. Also like the fact that I can put air right over the stovetop oven area when I'm cooking as it can get hot with the oven on...

The only other thing I'd say is before you screw the airbox all the way down, make sure the little air filters come in and out without binding. It's easy to flex the airbox ever so slightly and the filters will be hard to get in and out.

Does the entire "air conditioner" have to be replaced or is it just the inside box that is replaced?

Just the inside box and duct/frame. The AC unit on the roof is untouched. A one man job - less than one hour. You might need a second person to hold the duct while you screw it it, but not really needed.

The parts I listed was wrong. The service center accidentally got me the cover with the ceiling controls which probably explains the high price.

They sent me a parts sheet. Do I just need the cover, duct adapter and filters (2, 6 & 7) or do I also need part 9?

Tin Loaf,

The cover/filter/bracket come as one shroud Assembly. The duct/adapter (you call Part #9)comes as another, as listed in the Airstream PNs in my post # 17.

You need all of the above to retro fit to your application.

How about a vinyl ceiling...

I wonder if you have the vinyl headliner, like in a Po-folks safari if the impression in the ceiling will go away? I know you high rollers with the SE interior have no worries..

Before/After

It took two tries but I finally got the correct parts from Dometic. The Airstream part numbers are useless when you go directly to a Dometic dealer. I'd highly recommend going through Airstream for your parts.

Parts, tax and shipping totaled $156.

It was an easy process. You just take off the cover and remove the three large bolts holding the inner frame to the outside a/c unit. Then you need to remove a few screws holding the electric box to the ceiling of the trailer and move it within the air conditioner hole because the new air box is not as thick.

The old inner frame used two bolts toward the front of the trailer and one toward the rear. The new inner frame used two front and two rear. That got me worried, but the holes are there. You just have to dig the vulkem out of them. So you connect the new inner frame to the outside a/c unit using all four bolts. The bolts are included in the kit.

Finally you connect the air box to the inner frame. There are only two screws that go into the inner frame. Then there are three more that just screw right into the ceiling using self-tapping screws.

Not only is this upgrade great visually but it's also more functional. Especially if you have someone sleeping on the booth like I do. They finally get some airflow. You can see the small side vent in the photo that directs some air toward the kitchen as well.

So here are the before and after photos and the transformation from 1970s to 2000s.

That does look good! Thanks for the update. Is it any louder/quieter than the original box?

I haven't had much of a chance to test it but it was definitely more quiet when you open up the big vent on the bottom and let all the air blow straight down. When you have the air directed out the four vents is about as loud as the old one but it distributes the air much better. I'm very pleased.

As for the marks in the ceiling, the new box definitely has a smaller footprint so dents in the vinyl will show up. In fact there are small scuffs from where the corners rubbed on the aluminum in mine.

Hi Kevin

I just called my Airstream dealer here in CA and the part numbers you list don't come up on their "Airstream computer" when they punch in the numbers.

They say they can order directly from Dometic....is the part number 3310700.12 as posted by TinLoaf?

Thanks
Dennis

The correct Dometic part number for the inner air box assembly is 3310742.016. I was charged $110 although I think they over charged me. $110 was the price of the assembly with the built in thermostat and knobs and I don't think they changed it when they finally sent me the correct part. Without all the electronics I'm pretty sure it should have been around $60.

If you have the Penguin heat pump you will need the air duct adaptor - 3311109.00. It was $25.

I'll try these numbers with my dealer tomorrow.
