Greetings jdreisbaugh,

The tonnage is usually found on the name plate on the condensing unit outside. 12000 btu = 1 ton, 24000 = 2 ton and so forth. In your case the unit is 36000 btu, therefore a 3 ton.

I hope this helps!

### WHAT IS THE WARRANTY ON THE P3RA-036K? I'VE BEEN IN MY HOME FOR 4 YEARS AND 7 MONTHS. I BOUGHT MY HOME NEW BUT IT HAD BEEN SITTING FOR ABOUT A YEAR BEFORE I BOUGHT IT. EVAPORATOR COIL WAS REPLACED ON...

it should be. but you would need to check with intertherm they make that call. most unit come with a minimum of 5 year parts however who ever put it in and the dealer make final call so its to gray to say sorry if you explain your concern to intertherm they may give you an extended warranty it happens sometimes if customer feels cheated please give me a rating and vote

### How much would it cost to install the split unit outside since my trailer already has the inside hooked up?

Hi, I replace these condensers on a daily basis. Depending on the tonnage of the unit, lets say its a 2 ton unit, my cost is about 4 to \$600.00 dollars wholesale. Then they are marked up. You are looking at around \$1600.00 or more to install it total. If you know a contractor he can do it for 1/2 that. A heat-pump would be more. Just being honest with you.

### Duct size

THREE TON CAN GET BY ON A 12 RETURN AND A 12 SUPPLY SPLIT INTO TWO 10S ONE FOR EACH SIDE OF A DOUBLE WIDE. EVEN BETTER IS A 14 RETURN AND A 14 SUPPY SPLIT TO TWO 12S . IF ITS A SINGLE WIDE I THINK I'D TRY TO PULL TWO 14S ONE TO SUPPLY ONE TO RETURN.BIGGER THE RETURN THE BETTER. LIKE SUCKING A MILKSHAKE THROUGH A LITTTLE STRAW. BIGGER IS BETTER.BE SURE TO ELEVATE OR BLOCK UP THE DUCT OFF THE GROUND WITH STYROFOAM BLOCKING 6 IN THICK IN 2 FT LENGHTS , WORKS WELL GETS DUCT UP OUT OF DIRT AND WATER AND RODENTS CAN CRAWL UNDER.
