Question Airxcel 48000 A/C filter.

I have been trying to find out what the Airxcel/ Coleman company has for the filter on their units. Early in August, I did a 2 unit replacement exercise and, in an attempt to check the filters, I found that the same bulk charcoal filters I had installed were used on my new units. Perusing the owners manual, the only mention of filtration is for the non-ducted set up. Is this the accepted method of filtration or is there an official filter? Also, how harmful will it be to run the A/Cs' without filters for a few days until can locate and install new filter material? The front A/C filter was improperly sized by by my dim witted maintenance man (Me) and is dangerously close to being sucked in to the squirrel cage fan.


(yeah, I'm the clown that ripped both units trying to pass through lesser clearances)

Should just be the foam "filter" material, nothing fancy. And they should be in the ceiling assembly.

I replaced the Dometic ceiling dress-plate with the Dometic Genesis air filtration ceiling plate. It kept the inside air cleaner longer than the cheap foam stuff. Sure helped reduce my asthma symptoms and helped me sleep.
One of the reasons RV air conditioners lose some cooling ability is dirt blocking the evaporator coil.
