How It Works

Paired with your AC unit (sold separately), this electric heat strip keeps your RV warm on a cold or frosty morning. It is operated with the control dial on the air distribution box (sold separately). After you turn the dial to the heat setting, the compressor will shut off, and the fan will blow air over the heater and into your RV. When the optimal temperature has been reached, turn the dial to a fan or cooling setting. Please also note that the heat strip only has one temperature setting and cannot be controlled by the thermostat.


Simple Installation

Advent Air Electric Heat Strip

To install, mount the heat strip to the evaporator inside the AC unit with the included mounting screws. The heat strip has easy, plug-and-play installation with the supplied 30" power cord.

I installed the heat strip in my Advent air conditioner and it worked great, instructions were very good and it worked well, nice and warm. We had just installed the ac unit in a pop up camper and it was great, does not drip water on roof. Very happy. Steve

by:

Easy install. Will not be able to test until temp drops as it uses ambient air temp to activate per asa electronics. Currently too hot!! Timely delivery.

Very happy with this company they have everything I need and delivery is fast very happy and will continue doing business with them

Added as a second unit to a 33' Crossroads. Works great. Easy straight forward install. Using the ACRG 15 air distribution box with thermostat. All the wires are labeled from the factory so installation was a snap. Added the ACMHD heat strip also but it's 85 degrees and a little hard to test that out just yet. The crew at etrailer were great at helping me get everything picked out that I needed. Shipping was fast. If there was such a thing as a 10 star rating, they deserve it

I purchased this heat strip for the Advent AC135 rv rooftop air conditioner. The ACHD is the heat strip that is recommended for my unit but has been discontinued. The electrical specs for the ACHD and the ACMHD are the same, as is the width and height. I was able to match the curbside holes on the evaporator with the heat strip flange precisely. I mounted the heat strip and used the roadside heat-strip flange as a guide to drill two holes for a solid mount. Pretty simple after I clipped away a small portion of the cage that surrounds the heat strip. Plugged it in and, voila, heat. Works great. Sorry, no pics. And I don’t want to remove the shroud again if I don’t have to, as putting that back on was the hardest part of the job.



- ACMHD
by:

The heat strip works well. I would like more temperature control. But it certainly warms the living quarters of my trailer.



- ACMHD
by:

Seems like a great product so far. Installation was simple and it cools a 8.5x28’ trailer easy. One note: you must have 120v and 12v supply for this AC to work. I did not know that and had to go through some extra trouble of running 12 V power source.



- ACMHD
by:

I just installed the heat strip and it was simple. My original thought was to purchase this from a well known department store who cancelled the order. I then tried Amaz.... but their price was crazy. A call to the manufacturer directed me to etrailer! Pricing was very competitive in fact budget shipping beat everyone so I placed the order! I couldn’t believe how quick I received it. etrailer is on my speed dial now!

  • 15,000 Btu Ductless Air Conditioner For RV With Thermostat
    There is an option for a 15,000 Btu ductless RV air conditioner that does not have a wall-mounted thermostat, though there aren't any with a wireless thermostat. What you can use is an option from Advent, which has the thermostat directly on the distribution box so you don't have to use one mounted on your wall. This is available in either white or black: - White: Advent Air RV Air Conditioner with Air Distribution Box and Start Capacitor # ACM150C - Black: Advent Air RV Air Conditioner...

  • Adding Heat Strip to Advent AC Unit that Does not Have Knobs on Vent Assembly

  • Adjusting A Dometic Thermostat To Control An Advent Air Heat Strip
    To get your Advent heat strip Item # ACMHD to work on your Dometic Duo thermostat you'll need to remove the cover and set the three dip switches to Up - Down - Down. Your old setup was for a heat pump instead of a heat strip so that's why your strip wasn't showing up on your thermostat.

  • Can I Control the Heat Strip on Advent ACM150 Unit with Carrier Air V Controller
    It sounds like you're trying to control the heat pump on your Advent # ACM150 with your existing thermostat, which is not possible, but I do have a solution for you. The Carrier remote does not have a heat function on it, so there's no way for your existing unit to control the heat function. The Electric Heat Strip for Advent Air Conditioners # ACMHD can only be operated with the Air Distribution Box w/ Built-In Thermostat for Advent Air RV Air Conditioners - White # ACDB (non ducted...

  • Will the Advent Air Electric Heat Strip Work with a Wall Mounted Thermostat
    Yes, the Advent Air Electric Heat Strip part # ACMHD will work with the wall mounted thermostat on your ducted Advent Air 13.5K Air Conditioner. You would just have to first adjust the dip switch on the thermostat itself. I am sure you are aware but there is a red "OPT.

I have sent you some additional documents on adjusting the...

  • Can Advent Air Electric Heat Strip ACMHD Be Added to AC Unit with Heat Pump
    Advent Air Electric Heat Strip # ACMHD is intended for Advent Air RV air conditioners that do not have a heat pump. For an item like the Atwood Air Command AC with Heat Pump AT15026-21 a heat strip is not really applicable according to my contacts at both Advent Air and Dometic/Atwood.

  • Which Electric Heat Strip Will Work With My Advent Air AC Unit ACM150?
    The Electric Heat Strip for Advent Air RV Air Conditioners # ACMHD works with your Advent Air AC unit ACM150, also model number ACM135, ACM135B, ACM150B and the Advent Air air distribution box ACDB. The AC150HP model number you have is the same as the ACM150 model number. So, this is your model AC unit and the heat strip will fit.

  • AC Direct Replacement for Carrier AirV
    The Atwood Air Command Rooftop RV Air Conditioner w/ Heat Pump # AT15033-22 uses a different wiring setup than your Carrier AirV air conditioner so you wouldn't be able to just swap them out, but we do have some other options that do connect directly to your Carrier wiring. The Advent air conditioners # ACCAR135B (13.5K Btu) and # ACCAR150B (15K Btu) come with wiring adapters to connect directly to your Carrier wiring so these are very easy to install in that regards. These don't have...

    There isn't a full Advent Air Kit available that includes the Air Distribution Box # ACRG15 in place of the standard model, however you could piece together your own kit using the individual components. To match the contents of the Advent Air RV Air Conditioner Kit # ACM135CH you were looking at (except for the Air Distribution Box) you would just need part # ACM135 for the 13,500 Btu AC itself, # ACMHD for the Heat Strip, # ACMSCKIT for the Start Capacitor, and # ACRG15 for the upgraded...

  • Air Conditioner Replacement For Dometic 59136.331 That Ran Out Of Freon
    The Dometic air conditioner units are sealed therefore they cannot be recharged with refrigerant. The only option is to replace the unit. Since your unit is a 15,000 BTU unit I recommend to replace the AC with a unit at least 15,000 BTU. I recommend Advent Air Replacement RV Air Conditioner for Dometic Setup w/ Start Capacitor part # ACDOM150 which is a 15,000 BTU system that will easily plug into your existing Dometic setup without replacing wiring.
