Upgrading Penguin Duo-therm controller

I have a 2008 Penguin Dou-Therm AC and older 5-button controller (picture attached). Would like to upgrade to the CCC2 controller found in newer units.

Emailed dometic and they told me this is not possible. I asked if I could swap out the control unit and they told me no, not possible.

Just curious if others have managed to make the upgrade...

Upgrading Penguin Duo-therm controller

You can retro-fit a new unit with a 5-button control board that makes the Penguin II reverse compatible with the CCC-1 (assuming that the boards are still available) as I have done it several times, but you can't fit the new control board to an older Penguin A/C unit to allow you to upgrade to the CCC-II.

Dometic is correct (as they should be....... It's their stuff..... They SHOULD know how it works!!!)
