Carrier Roof AC replace with?

Looks like I will be replacing one of our Carrier roof AC units. These are ducted units with the hand held remote control. Since Carrier no longer sells these AC units, what would be an appropriate replacement? I really have no way to fish wires through the ceiling and down the wall to install a wall thermostat. Does anyone else make a roof air with remote control? Can I mount the wall thermostat on the ceiling near the AC unit?

Suggestions on make and model that could work?

Look at the Coleman (RVP) products. The Dometic units tend to be more trouble.

You may still be able to get a Carrier - last I heard their distributors still had them in stock. I heard of a guy getting a repalcement under warranty a back in July.

If not, my choice would be Coleman/Mach (RV Products brand).

Did the compressor seize or something catastrophic like that?

While it is not an easy thing, it can be done.

Alternatively, there are are a number of "wire chases" which are color coded and some apply with adheiseves. You could route the control wires through a decorative chase over to a cabinet or wall and make a very acceptable installation.
Good luck,

Our main unit went out at the beginning of a cross country trip in July,only about a weeks running time on it. They do still have them in stock,one was over nighted to us further down the road at a dealer in Ar.and was put on,still under warranty. We also got reimbursed for the service tech than came out to run a diagnostic on it. This was our main unit,don't know what will happen if it or the bedroom unit goes out.
