I will add one comment.. IF the whtie A/C in back and a black A/C in front bothers you.

paint one of them. .. Just remove the shroud, take it down to the ground and paint it, put it back up the next day.

By the way these air conditioners are stupid easy to replace and you can buy two units on ebay for less than they are quoting you and replace them yourself. The key here is are you willing to do the work yourself because it is wrong to buy online then ask them to install them for you.
Just saying

UH.........I watched them install mine and "stupid easy" is not exactly what comes to mind. Easier, IF you have a forklift to get the new one up there and the old one down, and....IF you are under 50 and not overweight......and provided you have a young strong helper! There is little mind challenge, it's all physical! Rook

I have installed them loading from the back of the truck. Use a couple of long 2 x 4 boards, a long rope and drag the unit up the slope to the roof (leave the unit in its box or skid) and onto a piece of plywood. Scoot it over to the hole, tip on it's side, install the gasket and lower to the hole. Go inside, center the unit, hook up the wires, clamp down and install the interior trim.

With a little engineering, you do not need a forktruck. I am over weight and well over 50 and can do this.

AH........but you do need a TRUCK! And.....OTHER not-so-handy at hand stuff if you are a full-time RV'er. Difficult to get them loooong 2X4's in the Toad........and watch that "scoot it over to the hole" if you have a EPDM rubber roof! Rook

All good points Rook, I forget about some of those things since I have access to a forklift etc.

Re-Reading this thread.. I see the original is a 2009.

Have you ever read a warranty statement.. It says somethig like

Warranted against defects in material and workmanship for 2 years.. bla bla blas YOU MAY HAVE OTHER RIGHTS WHICH VARY FROM STATE TO STATE>

IN this case.. I would suggest you learn what those rights are.. Check out somethin gcalled the Uniform Commecial Code, then your state's consuemr rights legislation.

Just what you will find (Since I'm not from the state where this device was originally sold) I can not predict. But you may, following research, wish to employ professional help (A lawyer).
