Air-conditioning on 2008 Catalina 387
I want to replace the original 16000 BTU unit under the V berth with like kind and quality. Anybody know how they go it in there, how to get it out, and get new one in. Open to suggestions for Make and Model for a new unit.

I have 2 ac units on this Catalina 2008 16000 BTU under V Berth and 7000 BTU in aft closet. The AC Coil in the V Berth that has been protected with a filter(always clean) has become totally degraded; when I take a vacuum and a brush to clean, it isn’t dirt that is coming off the fins, it is metal debris from same; I can’t even imagine how the ac is even able to cool. Anyway, being that the unit is 9 years old, I don’t trust it and want to replace. The problem unit is the 16000 BTU in the forward V Berth The unit that is in there is a Marvair SeaMach; I can’t begin to figure out how the hell they got it in there or how to get it out and how I can install a new like and kind. Any suggestions from my fellow Catalina owners. Thanks Charlie Knupp sailboat DAFFY Fort Lauderdale FL
