New rooftop AC model#

99 fds looking to replace my rooftop HEAT PUMPS.
Looking for a solution that is plug and play. (Duct lines up) same tstat wiring style phone jack rj11. And if possible a suggestion on where to purchase them. I have read the low profile units produce less airflow,I'm leaning towards the brisk II but I'm looking for confirmation that it's plug and play,so to speak. Thanks in advance.
I'm using my phone and usually searching isn't always right on target

Not familiar with your unit but the Brisk II will require the 10 button thermostat.

PPL in Houston TX has a great tech assist / parts shop...they are well versed on RV roof top options.....shipping and taxes vary based on your location and add to cost but their prices are pretty good....worth a call to them to get the process started....
PS--your old t-stat might be an issue and may require change out....

Youíll have to change the thermostat if you want to keep the 5 button thermostat, but if youíre changing both units, just change to the nicer thermostat.

Iím guessing the correct duct fittings on a 99 should be close to a 2005. If so, the Dometic Penguin II is the recommended replacement. Otherwise, youíll have to do some ductwork.

I posted about my experience a while back. Should be pretty easy to find.
