Dometic Blizzard AC Unit

Has anyone installed a Dometic Blizzard AC unit to replace whatever you had? Dometic claims this unit is quieter than the Penguin II which Airstream currently uses. I might need to replace my old AC unit and the alleged quietness of the Blizzard sounds good to me. Any real world experience and feedback would be greatly appreciated.

I haven't installed this particular unit so I can't comment on how quiet it is or isn't. I just installed a new Dometic AC unit and you may need to replace the ADB(air distribution unit) the part that goes on the ceiling inside and/or the thermostat.

Good Luck,
Bill

My penguin just took a crap, so I'm planning on installing a Blizzard 15k heat pump in about 2 weeks. A mobile repair guy said it wouldn't fit, seeing that someone else has already done it, I'm going to give it a shot. I can't stand the vibration that the penguin has, and I also have high hopes for the redesigned air box being a bit quieter.

I'll let you know haw it turns out, and try to document it all.

Very interested. Am also trying to understand if an Easy Start will fit within it.
