As far as I can tell, the only thing working on our unit is the fan. Anybody have any suggestions on trouble shooting? I'm an a/c dummy. Also, where can I find the nameplate info on this unit?

Get thee to a commercial refrigeration contractor who does coolers for the grocery store and the like and do what he says. Better still find a guy out in the stick who fixes milk coolers for the dairy farmers.

I think you will like it. The new models are so much more efficient both starting and running.

Thanks for all the discussion. I changed my order from the 13.5 to 15K BTU. I went with the carrier low profile with a heating strip. I'll need to keep my camper cool during the day. This will act as a cool spot for our 4 dogs when camping...if the bigger AC was for me my wife would tell me to "suck it up buttercup". But the dogs need a cool place to nap when it gets hot.

update

Today is the first day I am using the AC. Working great! I was tempted to try it out at City of Rocks SP on generator power but couldn't bring myself to make that much noise. I used the heat strip a lot over the winter and I am really happy I got it. One other note, after towing from TN to the Pacific Ocean and back to central NM, I feel pretty confident saying that the low profile AC has improved my mileage about a MPG.

Rodney,

Did you do the removal of old unit and install of new yourself? Have read that it involves cutting a larger hole in the roof and some bracing. I don't even know if my old original unit works, I'm suspecting it doesn't and just wondering what I'm in for.

I did indeed, it was a relatively easy job. The only hard part was breaking the old unit loose from the skin. THAT and cleaning up the goop used in the old installation was a mess. I used a bucket loader on a tractor to lift the old unit out and drop the new one in. The holes were the same size so no problems there.

If I recall it was a Dometic. My switch out was pretty easy.
