We have the same A/C and refer setup. Buy yourselves a interior refer fan (runs on a 9V battery for like forever ) this will help keep things cool.

Pre-chill your refer 24 hours before you leave for any trip and always put referigerated items in your camper (don't make your refer chill stuff if possible)

The TPMS is the bestRV add-on investment you will ever make - short of a progressive power management system []

Also, on the only 8329SS we saw in person, they had two Coleman Mach A/C's installed and had an analog thermostat in the living room but a digital unit in the bedroom. Is this how yours came, and if so I wonder why they didn't put digital units in both ends?

Some people seem to think the analog versions have a pretty wide temperature swing.
Unfortunately it came with the WFCO. The progressive does a better job of maintaining the batteries in my opinion. I do plan on adding the internal Progressive surge protector though. Currently all I have is a volt meter plugged in where you come in the door.

The front thermostat is a cool only so I guess they only have the digital for that. So far no complaints with the analog but I may change it out if I see a lot of inconsistency in maintaining the temperature.
