Is the AC 13.5 or 15k?

I have a 2014.5 30DS unit, with a small black AC unit on the roof. I thought I read that from 2014 to 15 they changed it from 13.5k to 15k. What do I actually have?

I have a hybrid model that has some of the 2015 features - but on a 14 chassis. I have the LED lights, front cap is not black, have a shower curtain/bar, etc.

I'm asking because it does not cool well here in Texas when it is over 90 degree's outside. It is not prewired for a second unit, and if it is only 13.5k I'm considering upgrading to a 15k. Thoughts?

2014.5 Forest River FR3 30DS (First Motorhome)
2010 Coleman Evolution E3 (Popup TH)
2011 Keystone Cougar 325SRX (5th Wheel TH)
2008 K-Z MXT 266 (Bumper TH)

I think the black Dometics are all 15k.

Shade and pre cooling have helped keep us cool on warmer days. What's your inside temp when its over 90 outside?

Remove the air filter and look at the data plate. If the first set of digits is B59516 it is a 15k, B57915 is the 13.5.
