I have no idea what to look for the type of unit I need or where the best places are to find it. How difficult of a process will this be for me to install? I am assuming (always the mother) that there is wiring running through the roof in that area. Please help! I am just getting more confused trying to research this online.
The original AC wiring was built into the shell.
Station "ZERO" is the front edge of the awning rail as well as the roof sheet.
Measure rearward 101 inches from station "zero".
That's where the original AC wiring was located as well as the AC.
If there is patches there, remove them.
The original 1969 AC has 2 holes in the roof.
Ball park, one was about 1 inch or so round and the other was about 2 x 4 inches oval.
