With instructions provided by one of the forum members I was able to remove the broken Fedders unit from our 1999 RoadTrek 190 Popular. One of the knobs had broken off and when the compressor kicked in it drew so much load that it stalled the generator. This is a rig that has sat unused for years.

It was a pain, but the removal was doable for the average driveway mechanic. I bought a Sharp air conditioner through Amazaon.com that has more cooling power, uses less energy and came with a wireless remote control.

The only trick is this: Once the new air conditioner is installed it must be secured and trimmed with matching wood pieces. I'm in the middle of the project right now and I'm pretty sure this portion of the project will be the most time-consuming.

you need to check the filter in the unit before condemning it. Most popular reason for no cold air is a dirty filter

RT's in '02 could be either Dodge or Chevy. I think Fedders was used in Dodges. If so, there used to be instructions for removal and replacement on-line, but I'm not sure there still are, or where. Maybe go the 'search' box above and use it to search for RT + air conditioner.
