2004 chinook concourse
Domestic duotherm
Model 630515.321

Thinking to replace the capacitor and fan (recent fan stuck.. It's working now.. For now). I don't know here to find exact replacement parts?
Perhaps I should look at a complete replacement? Some units on ebay look affordable at about $800. I'm not sure if the thermostat needs replacement too..more importantly, if I will just be able to reuse the wires instead of running new wires and stuff.

I ordered this from American RV Company (had a little better price). I haven't received or installed it yet, so it's not confirmed as known good replacement just yet. I added a new anode for the water heater just as a guess that I need to replace that soon too.

Let me start with this repair is a b!tch. Instructions are less than ideal, but reasonable. The screw/bolt to remove the condenser side (plastic) wheel sucks..
Tools not mentioned in the instructions but required in my case. Tiny pair of vice grips a hammer and maybe some gear puller. I still haven't gotten the metal wheel off. Going to buy a dremel later to hopefully get it off the shaft.

Ugh! Sounds like a bear.

I wish I were closer to you (I think you are in Florida?) because I have the complete, working, original AC unit from my Chinook that I removed. It's in storage in Arizona though, so not too convenient.

Kind of you Blue, luckily.. This project is done. For anyone reading this, I am now of the opinion that while a capacitor replacement is an acceptable diy project.. The motor replacement isn't for me. If I am in the position again, I'll do 1 of 2 things:
1) pay the $90/hr to have someone else do it (I don't know how many hours a trained person would require. I would probably max out at about 3 before I'd rather move to option 2.
2) replace the entire roof a/c with a newer model. I think some shopping around can get you a unit for $700-800. Of course if I did this, I'd then be torn if I should get a new lower unit and thermostat too.. It all adds up of course.

Glad that mess is done for me though.
