Replacing air conditioner

We need to replace our roof a/c. It is a 13.500 a/c, coleman-mack.
My question is , it looks like it is bolted in with 4 bolts, can i just order a 13,500 coleman that fits a 14 x14 opening? Are the a/c i see in camping world catalog a complete unit, i was told by a tech at camping world they are not? I really did not think what he said was correct as the units look as if they are. Has anyone out there replaced their a/c and what did it involve? Walter

They all will fit a standard 14x14 opening. But you need to make sure you get either the same AC unit as the one you're replacing or you have to know whether it's ducted or non-ducted. Sometimes you have to buy the kit for the inside depending on the installation.

We had ours replaced by a mobile tech unit in NOLA last year. It was an easy job and took them about an hour start to finish. If it's a ducted unit, the job is a lot easier.

Yes just 4 bolts and electric for power and wires for thermostat if you have one. May think of going to a 15,000 if you are having trouble keeping camper cool. The hardest part is getting the unit off and in the roof of the camper. Becareful and use simething to protect the roof.

Go to EBay and look for a PEAK Wireless backup camera, About $100.00. I have one and it works great.

Any RV A/c will fit the standard 14" x 14" roof opening. If you have to change models or brands, you will probably need to get a new interior trim kit with the roof top unit.
