If you pull open the filter grate you'll find the model and serial numbers I believe.

Looks like it.

My coach is in the repair shop for trans service and wanted to purchase a 3rd a/c and wanted to get the same model.

There was a discussion about adding a 3rd air conditioner. Do a search and you should find it. If I remember correctly, I believe that FR doesn't recommend it because of weight on the roof and power issues.

I have read them and plan on going ahead with it. I don't buy into the theory of weight on the roof. I would imagine a person walking on the roof would be heavier than a third air conditioner sitting up there. I would assume FR's issue is using the vent / fan opening for the a/c and someone cutting another hole in the roof to replace the fan?

The others who have installed them seem to have good success doing so.

We don't get into super hot temps. About the warmest was 95 in FL but with the shades and covers we were able to keep our 390RB in the low 70's.

There is most likely extra bracing in the roof for the AC units but doubt that extra bracing is used around the regular roof vent openings....

That is probably the issue FR has with adding a third unit if roof was not constructed for one in the future ... You are lucky if you get the bedroom second AC option as in wire and bracing already there when you want to install AC unit
