For The Record...We own a 25', '08 International CCD Ocean Breeze. It came from the factory with a 13.5k Dometic Penguin AC unit. It DOES NOT
sufficiently cool the interior of our camper. I've had the unit checked out and serviced twice by our dealer since purchasing. I was told each time that their is nothing wrong with the unit. We also monitor voltage ranges at each campground. Most are well within acceptable ranges. If they are not, we simply do not run the AC for fear of premature compressor failure.
Please note that we frequently camp in a typically hot and humid region (Texas) where 100-110 degree heat with 90-100% humidity is very common during the Summer months.
After doing some research on a suitable AC unit replacement, I purchased a Carrier 15k unit. I hope to soon install it once I finish my Progressive Dynamics 9260C Charger/Converter upgrade, which is another thread in itself.
