AC Replacement location??

I have 3 Dometic 13.5k ac/heat pumps on my 2008 HR Scepter. The condenser on my front ac crapped out so I ordered a new 15k Dometic Penguin II ac only unit as we rarely use heat pumps. Im wondering if it would be alot of work or make sense to move the working middle ac/heat pump unit to the front and put the new hopefully quieter Penguin II in the middle position? Were thinking it might be nice to have the higher output/quieter unit closer to the bedroom for nighttime sleeping. Any thoughts or suggestions are welcome. Thanks much.

I don't believe that the 15k would be that much quieter then your original 13.5. On my older coach, 2002 Dutch Star I replaced both 13.5's with the 15's but both were also heat pumps. First one I did was in the rear and it had a deep rumble noise to it. Also you could use the extra BTU's in the front with that big windshield during summer heat. Good luck with whatever you decide.

I've read the 15s are louder, and I agree new one in the kitchen or living room.
