Stay or Go?

There are two roof mount AC's (RV Products Inc, Part No: 9330B713)
And Two Interior Ceiling Mount Carrier AC (Model EM-1)

One of the Carrier's have lines that are cut... and the other seems still "hooked up" but does not operate that I can tell.

The Two Roof Mounts are long in the tooth, but also appear to have recently functioned... one has the power line cut.

Also that is a Fan, Blower on the floor? Keep?



Question is, should I even mess with any of these, or just remove interior Carriers and Replace the Roof Mounts with newer stuff?

Can't comment on the Carrier units, but...the gun rack is definitely a keeper!

Carrier went out of business. I have one that no one wants to work on which I'll probably get rid of unless someone will tap the line to add freon.

check what type of refrigerant they use.. carrier loved to use R-22 which is an EOL refrigerant and expensive... that bus is older than R-134a. but if it was originally designed to run on R-12 you can comnvert it to 134a easily and it will cool pretty good..

.. if you want good cold A/C while driving you'll want to re-commission some type of engine A/C.. those roof-toppers wont do much for you in the driver seat if you have a way to run them while driving..
