Air Conditioner Shroud Replacement

I have a 1998 Damon UltraSport 36. My shrouds need to be replaced. They are getting brittle and one has a small hole. I have Coleman Mach, no number listed after. My Air conditioner model # is 6799A806, serial D39812763 This was located on the actual rooftop unit. Serial # 029837225 CE, Part#73308730 was located inside rv under the vent. The cut opening on the bottom of the shroud is approx 37 3/4" x 38". Outside 41"or 43" x 28" x 10".
Any suggestions would be great. I ordered a TuffMaxx replacement shroud MaxXAir. The cut out was 32 x 23. Outside was pretty close. Could not fit over the unit. model of this one was 325001.
I have searched the web, but no one gives that inside cut out dimension. There has to be someone ese out there that has replaced theirs. Please help!

I couldn't find any reference to that model number (other than a few similar questions on the internet that may even be yours). If it were mine, I would look at two options, first is that if I couldn't find a shroud that is the exact fit, I would go for a larger shroud and use (make) some metal brackets back to the A/C frame to hold it in place. Second option, I would purchase some epoxy coating and tape over (from underneath) the hole and coat both the top and bottom of the shrouds with several coats, and then if needed repaint the shrouds. Keep in mind that epoxy doesn't like flexing so you want to be careful to have enough coats that allows the shrouds to have enough strength to hold together without flexing. You can simply brush this on and repeat as many times as needed to get a strong epoxy coating. If you go this route, I suspect that the shrouds you have now could last as long as they have already. Something like this. ~Craig

Thank you. I think we are going this type of direction with repair. Too costly to replace, especially when the shrouds are bigger and expensive.
