Steve,

 

Thanks for the reply.  I did the retrofit to Passport I/O back in 2006. 

I'm sure if I need to replace the whole unit yet.

I recharged the unit last summer but it still did not cool very well.  This year when I turned it on it does not cool at all.  This leads me to believe that it has a leak.

I'm thinking it may be time to replace the unit since it is the original unit on my 1991 Carver. 

I will either call or email you for pricing.

Thanks again,

Pat Tollis

Sure…I'd be happy to…These new "Turbo" units really are a step above anything else I have seen out there…

 /2010/11/08/marine-air-vector-turbo-self-contained-ac-16000-btu-115-volt/ 

Also…That "VRE" model you have came with the "ECU" control system…Not a Passport I/O that started production in 2003…

So unless the unit has been retrofitted to the Passport I/O, you won't be able to use your keypad/display with this new unit which has the board for the Passport I/O or Elite controls…

You can ID your control with this link:  /marine-ac-updates/marine-ac-control-identification-marine-air-direct-expansion-units/ 

Retail pricing is here:  /2011-official-marine-airrrr-price-book-catalog-marine-ac-products-marine-air-conditioning-parts/

Email or call me for your price, or with any other questions thru the Contact Steve link at the top of any page here… 

Thanks for the inquiry  Smile

Steve~
