I want to replace my existing Penguin A/C
2002 monaco executive with Climate Control Center, ducted ACx3 roof units (heat pumps)

Will my Genset (onan diesel 12.5kw) run three new penguin high performance Heat pumps?
Would you recommend Penguin II HP or Brisk air HP? Will i have enough power for 15000 Btu (desired), or should i go smaller?

I see a penugin 15M is offered on Newmar Coaches, I want this same luxury!

Thank you for using Just Answer, I will quickly, and methodicly work through your repair needs.......Thank you.........Michael, hi first of all the 12.5 kw generator is more than enough power to run the 3 airconditioners. Now it appears the 15M is an oem only model (they do this to enhance sales and dont sell in the aftermarket) However the industry does have available the 15K low profile penguin heat pump unit::::: Part number is *****

ok, great, so no problem on the power...


 


My next question is is it quiet enough. i have seen so many negative reviews on the new Pengin II a/c's Is there a better option for quiet?


 


Duo therm vs Penguin

RV Mechanic: Michael Reush, RV Technician replied 8 years ago
Just for clarification the Penguin is a Duotherm airconditioner made by Dometic, the differance is that the Penguin is their 'low' profile version............the low profile unit is reconfigured with a low long condenser coil, as well as different configuration of parts................The question is noisy operation..................I would think the low profile unit can make a bit more noise because of increased air flow......mechanical parts not so much.......................On your Manaco for height purposes, you need to stay with the low profile unit...............Michael

ok i think i will stick with same brand/type


 


If I buy the 651816


will i need new contrller? CCC2 or can i use original vertically oriented CCC


 


Is there ducting required? or any special install stuff?

RV Mechanic: Michael Reush, RV Technician replied 8 years ago
They should be compatable, however when you order the part, make sure you speak to the parts rep to verify....................the a/c comes in two parts the upper unit itself, then the lower ceiling plentium, yours is ducted, and has an electronics package that accepts the wall thermostat signal...............
