Customer Question

I need to replace a Carrier Air 5 rv ac unit. 15,000 BTU no heat pump has an air duct and uses a remote. I hear ya'll don't make rv ac units anymore and was wondering if you could give me any information about an equivalent ac unit made by coleman?
JA: Did you double-check the thermostat's settings? And what about the filters?
Customer: I'm looking for my husband. His dad's unit is super old. Its just needing to be replaced.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: yes
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: not that I can think of. We just need to know what unit is the most similar to replace it with.
