Hopefully the Brisk is much quieter.  I would like to compare that to the Hougton A/C I have. One good thing about the Brisk, its sold in a lot more locations then the Houghton and I imagine parts are easier to get if you need them. Good luck on your new AC, I hope its quiet and you can hear yourself think, not like the Penguin.. 

Very Respectfully

Lance thanks.  Having hearing loss of hearing to begin with and then loud noise of the penquin, my wife almost had to use ear muffs cus the TV was always do loud.  I am hoping the brisk is quieter.  Will keep all posted.

Verdict in:   Dead A/C unit.  Will be replacing with the taller, lighter dometic brisk unit.  The penquin was soooooooooooo  noisy.

Ron,  I currently have the same thermostat in my 08.  I really meant to inquire about the thermostat used with the Houghton.

Can I assume the Houghton is the A3800?  My next question is:  The Dometic Brisk II Rooftop Air Conditioner, 13,500 BTU - Polar White (B57915.XX1C0) is picked the quietest AC on the web and the Houghton is not even listed in the top 10.  The Brisk is only 1.7 inches taller and 13 inches shorter than the penquin ii.   Just asking.

Hello Bangorbob
I use the thermostat in the A/C's to control them and the heater is controlled by a 2 wire thermostat (easy set-up).


If you are asking about how the Houghton A/C's are controlled.
Very Respectfully

Yes sir, I was asking about the Houghton A/C's.  I just spell it out like I should have.  I really don't need nor want the heat pump/strip or whatever the AC is used for heating.  The furnace and small portable electric heater works great.

What thermostat did you use to run it all, meaning the a/c, heat, and furnace?  I read that it does not work with other brand thermostats.

Thanks for the replies.  I have a mobile tech coming over around 4 today.  I do have the micro air softstart 364 installed.  Last time the comp wouldn't start I messed with the wiring.  Not so this time.   I'm hoping it is a cap.  I prefer maybe $200 vs 2k.   Will keep the forum updated.

Another year - another problem.  Gotta love RV's.  Anyway, my 14/15 yr old dometic penquin, noisy thing is probably on it's last legs (as I am).  Anyway, worked fine until in didn't.  Compressor won't come on.  Will go up topside and check wiring. 
Anyway, probably time for a new one.  I see the new ones are around $1500-1800.  If anyone has changed theirs, what brand, model did you change it with?

Thanks, Bob

Are the indents in the carpet?  I installed vinyl in my 08 and haven't had any problem (yet).  I did not install on slide as my sofa/bed takes up the entire slide.

I have done it on previous RV's.  I went to a shop in Las Vegas that specializes in foam material.  They helped me pick the density and cut it to my specs.  Upholstery shops want more money than the foam shops do.  I understand because they are the middle person.

Welcome to club of blistering/clearcoat peeling.  The cap clear coat on my 08 is gone.  The shelf on the rear is gone (I recently painted).  AND now my hood is starting to peel.  Don't know how they prepped, but I don't think they did a good job.

It would be nice to have the ability to the people on this forum first dibs at stuff.  Heck, I know a lot of sites I could post stuff.  I'm kind of loyal this way.  This site has helped me with great advice.

I have been on other types of sites and I understand that some people would join just to peddle their stuff.  I'm sure there would be a way to verify true member vs scammers/etc.  Take a look at Craigslist.  What a piece of art work!!

I know you ain't supposed to sell anything on this site, so how do we reach this audience with things we don't need/want anymore?
