The present unit was examined by Fred Salrin...he has the best reputation in the area. He says the unit rusted out to much to repair.
I can get a new design turbo 8K unit but cost ~ $2500. The 6K EDC unit I can get from defender for ~$1200. The 10K unit I can get from defender for ~ $1400 I need to stay with Dometic to use existing control panel.
Think I'm slanting toward the 6K unit and take a chance ???
Flagship has a unit that is 6,500 Btu model FM6R and it is $1,299. Includes new control panel. Don't let that scare you. The panel is wired to the unit by way of a phone wire, just like the wire that goes from your phone to the wall. Easy to route any place. You can add heat $179. With this heat you can run it on the hard if need be. So if the dimensions will fit it is right where you want to be.
I have no connection with these folks just a happy previous customer and if one of my units goes south this is what I'm putting in.
