I replaced the air conditioner shroud on my Dometic A/C today. Last Summer my cover developed 2 small cracks on the bottom edges near 2 seperate screws. Since it was just before we were leaving on a 12 day trip I put some glue on the cracks and it held up all Summer.
Finding a replacement was confusing
, there are lots of Dometic part numbers out there and the Dometic manual(s) were just about usless. For example one of the parts manuals for my number (Duo-Therm Model 57912.631) has this: Shroud SEE NOTE 1
NOTE 1: Open End Shroud (Shell White) (Polar White) & (Light Gray)
Replaced by Closed end shroud 3309518.003
*Closed End Shroud (Shell White) 3308781.008
*Closed End Shroud Polar White) 3308782.006
*Closed End Shroud (Gray) 3308783.004
Close End Shroud (Polar White) 3309364.002
Closed End Shroud (Black) 3309364.010
which one? More Google searches seemed to indicate there is a 10 inch tall model and a 12 inch tall model. It seems the 12 inch is a 10 inch with a 2 inch grey band riveted to the bottom and all those numbers above look like 3309518.003.
I finally ordered this one from Campingworld:
Dometic Brisk Air Replacement Shroud, White - Dometic 3309518.003 - Air Conditioner Accessories - Camping World
SALE $118.99 Shipping : Add $9.00 (some places have it for $97 and $50 shipping!, FEDEX large box cost!)
Campingworld shows just the white upper part and their Q & A says
Does the small gray band come with this or is it just the white top?
....Campingworld answer: This is just the white top portion.
- mine came with the grey band .... I drilled off the rivets.
It did come with a Dometic instruction sheet that said I needed a 9/64" drill ... but never said why. Also said it came with 3/4" screws .... they were 1/2" screws.
Bottom line: It fits perfect
Sidenote: The A/C had 2 old and one current active wasp nest inside the cover.
Sidenote 2: I had the old cover standing on it's back on my deck while I compaired size of the old and new... they were the same. Later in the day a small gust of wind knocked it over, when I picked it up the top had major cracks that were not there before it blew over. I guess I replaced it just in time.
