Replacement for SVCD 16K/1 HV-LH

I am very confused. I need to replace my self contained Marine Airrr SVCD 16K/1 HV,LH unit on my Hunter sailboat. The unit has undergone severe electrolysis due to a failed ground wire but that is a different story. I am getting confused trying to figure out which model is the closest replacement. I understand that I can no longer get a left side discharge which is problamatic but I can probably install a right hand discharge though the evaporator will not be directly behind the return vent. I don't know if I understand the difference between the Marine Airrrr by Dometic ECD16K-HV or the VTD16K also by Marine Airrr. I'm hoping to get a unit that is a drop in replacement to the extent possible notwithstanding the right hand left hand discharge issue. I would hope that the new unit will be compatable with the Passport controller.

I also have a second SVCD 10K nit for the aft cabin onboard that works just fine. The units share the same seawater pump via a self powered relay box. I'm hoping that I will not have to change the wiring around if at all possible.


Any help guidance and insight would be greatly appreciated.
