Simone I know has a 1982 5th wheel she lives in. Last year I replaced the start and run capacitors and this year the motor went out. (Dometic a/c model QC135-A). Being so old they don’t make parts for it anymore. The old motor was a Westinghouse S# 322P680. Someone at an electric motor shop found a motor that would work but it’s discontinued-an Ao/Century model OFE4536. So I called Grainger and have a motor coming that I should be able to get to work(after shortening one shaft and capping one speed)-a Dayton model#5WJC3. But it has an attached capacitor on it and the unit has start and run capacitors. Anyone have any advice on how I should approach this?
