Replaced a 10 year old Coleman this year. Not much use really but has experienced low voltage a number of times. First the fan motor seized. Replaced that & gave everything a good cleaning. Two weeks later the compressor died. Bought new unit & salvaged slightly used fan motor as spare for new unit.

15 years so far; no problems. And I don't hesitate to run it even when the voltage is as 105 volts or lower which is quite common in many campgrounds, and is supposedly bad for ACs.
That being said I use AC rarely; probably 2 or 3 days a year.
