Flash Freeze Technology

Advent Air Flash Freeze Technology

The air distribution box also offers Advent Air's Flash Freeze technology. This technology consists of 3 slotted registers and 1 curved, louvered vent that provide maximum airflow whether your system is ductless or ducted. This enables the unit to cool the interior of your RV or camper more quickly than other air distribution boxes that might only have 2 registers or don't have a louvered vent. If you have a ducted system, you will have air coming out of the ducts, the registers, and the vent. Or for more evenly distributed airflow, you can divert more cool air through the ducts and use the sliding switches to close the registers.


Wall-Mounted Thermostat

Advent Air Thermostat Mounted on Wall

This air distribution box includes a wall-mounted thermostat that lets you control the operating mode, fan settings, and temperature settings, and also turn the system on and off. Simply hit the MODE button to switch between 4 modes: cooling, heat pump, furnace, and heat strip. The heat pump mode will not work if the outside temperature is below 38 degrees Fahrenheit. If the temperature does drop below 38 degrees, then the thermostat will automatically activate the furnace mode.


To operate the fan, press the FAN button. The thermostat offers auto, low, medium, and high fan speed settings that let you increase or decrease airflow as needed. In the auto setting, the fan will turn on and off with the compressor or furnace, and the speed of the fan will be determined by the temperature.


To set the temperature, press both arrow buttons. Then use the buttons individually to either lower or raise the temperature. The thermostat will display the temperature in either Fahrenheit or Celsius. To switch from Fahrenheit to Celsius, or vice versa, press both arrow buttons for 3 seconds.


Advent Air Thermostat Blue LED Display

The thermostat has a blue LED display and large, user-friendly buttons that are easy to see. 15 Seconds after the last button is pressed, the blue light will turn off, which helps save power. The thermostat also has indicator lights that act as a confirmation as to whether the fan, the cooling setting, or one of the heat settings is currently being adjusted.

Have installed box and thermostat. This was wired into an older dometic system that was a hardwired setup. As a work around due to no plug to plug the new advent ac to. Rather spendy but worked well. Unit is up and running and all works well. This allows all functions of the ac

Very simple install. I think the thermostat could be a little higher quality but it does the job.



- ACRG15
by:

the air dist box was received quickly and in good condition install was simple, if running the furnace on this thermostat you need only hook up the neg wire from the furnace usually will be the white one to the wire marked furnace everything works great

It was easy to install and woks perfectly. I appreciate the the help and advice I received from etrailer in purchasing and installing this air conditioner.



- ACRG15
by:

The ac cools just fine. It was a little bit of a hassle installing the wall thermostat because it has to be hooked up to 12v power while the ac is on 120v. Luckily my electrician friend was able to help us out. Our trailer is an '87 so perhaps newer trailers have the 12v & 120v already wired together. The only downside after installation is how LOUD it is. I mean, REALLY LOUD! I can't hear someone who is 8 feet away from me when it's on. There are 3 fan settings but the difference is not that much. We were able to sleep well because of the drowning white noise but I really wish it was quieter. At least we won't be sweaty!

by:

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

Great service

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.

We ordered a remote control and this was not we had a hard time putting in because we did not have a wire for a thermostat not fun or happy but we made it work

Ask the Experts about this Advent Air Accessories and Parts

  • Availability of Advent 13,500 Btu Air Conditioner with Air Distribution Box # ACRG15
    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...

    In order to use the Advent Air Rooftop RV Air Conditioner part # ACM135 with the Ceiling Vent Assembly with Wall Mounted Thermostat for Advent Air RV Air Conditioners part # ACRG15 on your trailer in place of the dual Coleman Mach unit you have now you would need to use the Advent as a standalone unit as there would be no way to communicate with the Coleman Mach thermostat.

  • Do you Need to Run Wires to use the Wall-Mounted Thermostat for Advent Air RV Air Conditioners
    Good Question. It will depend on your current setup when using the Wall-Mounted Thermostat for Advent Air RV Air Conditioners - White part # ACRG15. Most newer RVs have the wiring already ran up to the ac and then to a panel on the wall to mount the thermostat or to the thermostat that is already there that you are replacing. If that's what you have those wires are great to use. If that's not the case and you don't have a current thermostat you're replacing or your setup isn't pre-wired...

    The Air Distribution Box # ACRG15 is designed for use with both ducted and non-ducted air conditioning systems, so it can be used with the Advent Air RV Air Conditioner # ACM135CH without any modifications.

  • Non-Ducted Installation of Air Distribution Box for Advent Air RV Air Conditioners # ACRG15

  • What is Needed to Install an Advent AC Unit on RV without Ducting
    For non-ducted AC applications you need to use a roof vent setup like the air distribution box part # ACRG15 that you referenced with the unit itself like part # ACCAR150. Or we have this setup as a kit with part # ACM150C which is the AC unit and the roof vent.

  • What is Flash Freeze Technology on Advent Ceiling Vent Assembly?
    That is an excellent question; the FlashFreeze technology that is a part of the Ceiling Vent Assembly with Wall Mounted Thermostat for Advent Air RV Air Conditioners - Ducted # ACRG15 simply means the airflow from the Advent AC will be blown directly into your RV's living area. The benefit of this is that it will cool down your RV quicker because of the direct air flow.

    The Advent Air Replacement RV Air Conditioner for Carrier Setup w/ Start Capacitor - 15,000 Btu - White Item # ACCAR150 is just the rooftop AC unit and does not come with remote controls as this kit is designed to retain only the ceiling vent and thermostat.

  • Recommended Air Distribution Box for Advent Air ACM135
    When it comes to roof top air conditioners, the air distribution boxes that are compatible with them are going to be fairly specific. The Advent # ACM135 is compatible with only 2 specific air distribution boxes: the Air Distribution Box and Thermostat # ACRG15 or the Air Distribution Box with Built in Thermostat # ACDB , so you would need to use one of those. You may also need some 12 gauge double wire # 12-2-1 and Heat Shrink Butt Connectors # DW05745-5 to complete the installation.

  • Does Advent Air ACCAR150 Replacement RV Air Conditioning Unit Include the Thermostat
    The thermostat is not included. The unit includes an adapter that would allow you to continue using your existing Carrier air distribution box and thermostat. If you need the air distribution box and wall mounted thermostat, it's available separately as part # ACRG15. For an all in one unit that has the thermostat built into the air distribution box, use # ACDB. I've linked to some product description videos for the air distribution boxes/thermostats I recommended above

    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.

  • Solution for Defective Carrier AC Control Board After Installation of Advent Air Unit
