Which A/C unit do I buy?
I have a 25 foot '72 Tradewind Land Yacht with a Coleman Mach EL series a/c unit. After numerous phone calls, Airstream says it is not the original and Coleman says this unit it at least 40 years old. I find it curious that the original a/c was replaced within approximately 5 years of being new...
This has been an unusually hot summer and like clockwork, when the outdoor temp is 92+ degrees my compressor will shut off within 4 hours and just blow hot air. Coleman says that the motor is overheating.
I have had my Airstream for 8 years and have never had the a/c serviced.
According to Coleman, they don't make them like this anymore and cleaning the filters and outdoor screen are really all the service this unit requires.
So now to my question...is there a unit out there which will easily replace my Coleman and be as self contained? Found someone to install for me but they charge $100 per hour so I want to know what I'm committing to financially. Thanks for any feedback.
