Adding roof AC to Jayco Sport 10SD

We just bought a used 2017 Jayco Sport 10SD without an AC. Being in Central Florida it will be important.

Good news I believe you take out the roof fan and put in the AC unit, so it has been pre-wired and has the right size hole.

Has someone done that?

Suggestions on the roof AC unit?

Suggestions on the proper steps for installations, hope to do it myself.

Any other hints on this camper.

A standard 14" square vent opening is also standard for rooftop A/C. 12v wiring is in place, not sure if it's pre-wired for 120v, you'll have to check. See if there's a spot in your 120v power panel for an A/C breaker.

Does your RV have a furnace? If so, then you perhaps have a thermostat? Does it have the capability of also controlling the A/C? If not, some rooftop A/C units are self-contained with thermostatic control built it. That would eliminate trying to wire a remote thermostat up into a pop-up roof. The A/C will add about 80-90 lbs to the roof, make sure it is designed to lift and support it.
