Hi my name is Robert

You have some options you can go with a Dinosaur board, or the 93865 board will work for that, I believe Atwood stopped making the 93867. Dinosaur also makes boards and has one for this model, they make a superior product and are well known in the RV world click HERE for that information.... Robert
