I bought the RT in 2014, the A/C unit was installed in 2010.
I do not have the model number for it, for some reason I do not have the manual for it, hence no model number. I couldn't find it behind the filter panel. Upon further investigation I'm thinking this an 8k btu unit, but I wouldn't bet my money on it. I think they used to make a 10k unit with the same size chassis. It appears that Home Depot carries a current 8k example:
It looks quite similar to ours but things may/probably have changed since 2010. The critical spec is height and that appears
to be the same. The 10k unit shows a higher height but not certain if that extra piece on the top accounts for the difference. The EER is 12 on this, so fairly efficient for a window unit.
Also, the install work order had a charge for modifying the opening, so apparently it is not a slide replacement, although it looks stock from the interior of the coach.
I don't believe that there is an "RV" rating for it but it has performed well for over eight years, over 60k miles.
Do make sure that you have the shielding that is supposed to be there for directing the outside air flow. It consists of two vertical panels that fit up against the A/C unit at the edges and extend to the rear screen to keep the air from recirculating through the condensor coil.
I wish I could have helped on the model number but it is probably behind the front panel which is apparently not removable without pulling the unit. Sorry.
If I were to have to replace it I would get the above unit after double checking the dimensions once the old unit was removed. $249, quite frugal.
