In order to help out a little bit, know the following. 1. It is only the compressor that failed. I am hoping to keep the same control box, which worked very well in both AC and heat pump mode. 2. I have a concern about physical compatibility. The present AC when looked at from the bottom has a square outlet air port of about 6x6" in rear right corner.

Ok thanks.

Where is the inside return air filter in the unit or in the vents on one side of the coach?

What I can find out is you will need to up grade your ac system or have your ac compressor replaced. etrailer.com offer some conversion ac units that they say will plug into your controls but I think your ac unit has no inside section it flows air straight into vents on one side and return on the other side. I had pervious cust. tell me that dometic told them they will have to use a penigum unit.

Domestic tells me only way out is to change to penguin 15000 heat pump which comes with control box for 10-button thermo. Then buy 10- button thermo and 10-button-compatible control box for the other old AC. But I had to ask them if a 10-button control box is available for my old AC. Their first solution was penguin, but dump the 10-button box. Then buy conversion kits to bring new one down to 5-button and old one up to 5-button. Much more expensive.
