Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?
Compressor needs replacing
Good luck, I'm in the business and it's virtually impossible to find just the compressor for rooftop rv units. You might be able to get one through and RV dealer that sells parts as well. Also, contact dometic. Usually the only time a compressor is replaced is when the units are still in warranty. Let me add one more thing. Because of the price, it's more economical to replace the whole uint since most of these units are below $800 total price.

Honeywell t8601d showing a square symbol error - in past this has indicated low refrigerant. Tech came out, said need to replace thermostat, as compressor would not start, but if manually connected wires, compressor would start. So, had thermostat replaced. Tech then said need refrigerant. Did the t8601d actually need to be replaced?

Hi. I have a Sankyo SD-508 airconditioning compressor that runs the refrigeration on my boat. It doesn't hold the refrigerant charge for very long (2mths or so) and I understand the seals may need replacing.
