Yes all 3 units are the same and have the same capacitors.
Last time I changed mine was in 2013, then now last week.
All you need to do is time to time check the Micro Farrah reading of the Capacitors with a nice volt meter.
For info, I just changed the 2 Micro Farrah which were reading 0.5 and it was still working fine.

Sorry group to pile onto this topic
however, this evening I found the forward stateroom filled
with smoke. After examination of the AC unit, one of the
fan capacitors had a big hole in it. I also located, what
I believe are, the two start capacitors inside the control
box. Is it a safe assumption that all three AC units use
the same 5 capacitors (3 fan and 2 start)? My thought is
to replace all the capacitors on all three AC units and put
these on some kind of maintenance schedule. Any feedback
on whether this is a good idea? If so, how often should
they be switched out?
Any input is appreciated.
