Good news! Finally got confirmation that my AC unit is going to be replaced and that Dometic can have a new unit at the dealers ready to install in a couple of days. So the summer may be salvageable after all! #FingersCrossed

Ours has seen the shop at last 10 weeks out of 12 months we have had it and we have only been on 4 camping trips in that time. A/C still working though .

It's been a long time coming but after 3 full months of a failing AC and trying to get it repaired it finally works! We eventually came to a point where the only fix left was to replace it and it passed the critical test this week when we had it sitting out in the sun for several days at a campground on 95+ days. So hopefully we can check that one off the repair list and move on to the other outstanding issues.
