michaelivan Posted April 15, 2022 Share Posted April 15, 2022 We have a 2003 Windsor 40PST and I am needing to do a repair/replacement on my Norcold 1200. The cooling unit has ceased functioning and so I am exploring a few options. Option 1 would be to replace the existing cooling unit. Option 2 would be to replace the unit with a residential unit. Option 3 would be replace the entire unit with a new Norcold 1210. We only use the MH about 75-100 days each year and so it sits in storage for extended times. While in storage I do have 30 amp power connected so we normally keep the refer on and ac/heat on to control humidity in Florida. We have a storage drawer under the refer that the wife really likes and would like to keep it. All of the seals on the doors are still in good condition and don't appear to leak any cold air so there is no reason to replace the entire unit. We are also used to the capacity of the 1200 so we have learned to plan grocery shopping to keep the shelves stocked. I am leaning towards the JC refrigeration Dutch Aire (Amish) Hvac compressor cooling unit. It would allow us to keep the existing unit (and the needed drawer}. I was just wondering what others have experienced with the compressor style cooling unit. Also. it comes in either 12v DC model or 120v AC model so which is better/best? We seldom dry camp except for an occasional overnight in Walmart of a truck stop and have always gotten by using either the inverter or the genset. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
