Anyone know an experienced Amish unit installer in Texas for a Norcold 1200?

Welcome to irv2.
Why not contact the people that sell the Amish cooling unit they may have worked with a dealer or Mobil Repairman in your area.

I have done that. I was looking to see if anyone had experience with any. One that I contacted wanted more than twice the fee for installation than I have seen posted for other states.

Texas covers a lot of ground. If you find a cheaper installer.
It may cost more in fuel to get to him.

David Force, the Amish Cooling Unit owner, charges about $400 to properly install their unit. Although it will be more because you will usually need to install new 120 VAC heaters, cooling fans and a thermo snap disc while the unit is out.

I would look for a reputable RV service center to do the job. One that I know of is called Iron Horse RV around the San Antonio TX area.

They have done Norcold to residential conversions with great customer satisfaction.

Another one in San Antonio is Texas RV Supply on Austin Highway. Ask for Tony. He has told me if I go that route the install would cost about $500-$600.

I have confidence that I could do this myself but time is a bit of an issue right now. David Force has been helpful but he did not list Iron Horse as one that had done these installations , I do not want to go with a residential conversion.
