direct replacement for 1972 Winnebago Chieftain roof AC?
« on: October 06, 2018, 04:33 PM »
I have a D24C winnebago cheiftain on a dodge chassis 413 engine that has a 30amp shore power plug and a single roof Duo-Therm AC unit. I'm trying to find out what type of roof AC I need to buy to replace this one. This one just has controls for AC and air no heat, I have seen a lot of diffrent models and I just want to make sure I get the right BTU and that it fits in the opening,

Here is a picture of it, I have the shroud but the fan motor burned up and its low on R22 so rather than fixing it I'm just going to replace it

X2 for the gasket.

The interior housing, venting may be sold separate from the the outside roof unit  Some are for ducted air, others for straight discharge. Confirm what you are getting.
