F53 Thor Pinnacle 1998 bad AC unit

I have one bad AC unit and one going trying to keep up. Will soon have two bad AC units. Looking for my best pet at replacing both AC units outside and inside non duct units and thermostat. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I replaced my old Carrier with Dometic Brisk 2 and a Capacitive Touch stat. I assume you already have a wired stat which would eliminate the toughest part of my install. The unit at any fan speed is louder than my second Carrier and I really dont like the stat, I find it difficult to read unless directly at eye level. That said, seems to keep us cool.

I only have one on my Class C. Replaced it with a "like" unit from PPL in Houston. I found them hard to beat on price and service. Mine is ducted but the install is pretty easy for either type. Biggest problem is always how to get the new one up there and the old one down...... a very husky nephew just shoved it up an extension ladder leaned against the coach [so of course that part was v e r y easy. :^) ]


Good luck with the work and safe travels.
