I am sure if you get a hold of a local RV store they can cross reference your model and tell you everything you need for this. You may need a new thermostat as the board inside the AC unit might be updated. The AC is secured to the roof with some mounting bolts mounted under the inside shroud, they are very long bolts that run up to the AC unit, between the AC unit and roof is a foam gasket. When a new one is installed pay attention to the torque rating on the bolts, they do NOT get torqued down all the way, I have see techs do this and it can cause damage to the compressor, normally it is only about 12-14" lbs not foot lbs. IF you have a friend that does HVAC he should be able to do this pretty easily.
