This AC unit from Advent Air is designed to replace the old or broken Carrier air conditioner on your RV or camper. The included adapter wiring kit ensures that the AC works seamlessly with your existing, in-good-working-order Carrier air distribution box and thermostat. The AC has a powerful fan and motor that provides a steady stream of air to efficiently cool the inside of your RV on a hot or muggy day. The included start capacitor will help jumpstart the AC. This beneficial upgrade provides the AC a boost when shore power or generator power isn't enough to start it. And everything you need in order to replace your AC unit is included, which makes installation simple and easy.


Start Capacitor

Advent Air Start Capacitor

If your campsite or generator isn't able to draw the power you need, then you may have difficulty starting your AC unit. The included start capacitor, however, can eliminate this problem. The capacitor stores energy that will later be used to jumpstart the AC. Once the sufficient amount of power has been supplied to the AC, the compressor will start to run, and the internal relay switch will turn the start capacitor off. At the same time, the compressor will send "back voltage" to the relay switch and capacitor in order to energize them for the next startup.


Simple Installation

Advent Air AC Installation 13,500 BTU

Because your RV is likely already prepped and pre-wired for an AC unit, installation is simple and easy. Most AC units, including this one, are designed to fit an opening that measures 14-1/4" x 14-1/4". Depending on your roof setup, you may need to do minimal alterations. If the opening is larger than 14-3/8" x 14-3/8", you will need to install spacers between the sides of the unit and the opening's edges. If the opening is smaller than 14-1/8" x 14-1/8", you will need to enlarge the hole to fit the unit snugly inside the opening.


Advent Air AC Collapsible Gasket and Foam Pads

On the bottom of the AC, there's a thick, collapsible gasket with 6 noise-reducing foam pads. This provides support between the RV roof and AC and seals the opening to prevent water and outside air from leaking in. Because of this, the use of fresh sealant isn't required during installation.


To install the start capacitor, bolt it to the fan motor support with the included hardware and then route the wires to the run capacitor.


Once installed, the hard plastic cover on the AC can easily be removed for maintenance and cleaning.


Advent Air Warranty Coverage

2-Year limited warranty covers defective units when installed correctly on approved applications. The warranty does not cover units installed incorrectly. To ensure air conditioner is installed correctly, please see the questionnaire pdf below. A filled-out questionnaire is required for warranty coverage.


If you are not comfortable using a voltmeter (or removing the charge from the start capacitor), youll want to make a service appointment with your local RV dealer to verify the installation. Print the pdfs below (warranty- questionnaire, warranty dealer information) and take them along with the RV to your local dealer. ASA does compensate dealers for warranty work as outlined in the dealer information pdf. You may be charged by the dealer for time spent investigating the installation.

It only run 3 hours and stopped running piece of junk so I went and bought a Coleman Mach air conditioner



by:

I received the replacement air conditioner a week earlier than expected which was great! Installation was easy and directions were simple and I am now nice and comfortable. I gave this item a 3 star rating simply because I haven't had it long enough to rate the actual unit.



by:

Great service and very fast shipping. Thank you team etrailer.



by:

Just got it installed which was extremely easy !



by:

The AC I ordered was exactly what I needed. Installation was not too difficult. The only issue I had was reconnecting the thermostat in the control panel. But I know now, that I should have taken a picture before disconnecting the wires. My husband installed the rooftop unit and I helped him with the wiring.
Installation took 1.5 hours total.



by:

Waiting to install this spring, will let you all know how it goes. Unbelievable fast shipping, all looks good do far



by:

Very easy installation. Instructions easy to comprehend. We not started and is working fine. Going through e trailer actually save me 900 dollars based on quote frame local tv shop. Thanks a bunch and God bless!



by:

we installed the AC unit yesterday and it is working good on low speed but won't run on high fan. Im not sure if it is the fault of the unit or something in the wiring or the printed circuit board. The unit we replaced got to the point that it wouldn't run on high either. Getting the unit on top of the camper was easy once we viewed a video of how it was done, and we got the old unit down with no problem using the rope and ladder.



by:

Easy install. Carrier wire harness plugs right in.



by:

Everything about this purchase was top notch! The order arrived as promised. The instructions were easy to follow and the replacement went without any problems. Thank You!



by:

by the time I received the unit, motor home was in storage. Installed it in May, it works great, went in well.



by:

This is a great product. Bolted on easy, wiring connected up very nice allowing me to use original controls. Used it last summer and it works real good. I couldn't be happier.

The main problem with these units is the shipping container. This was the third unit that arrived damaged. UPS must have flipped the box over on its top and crushed the compressor terminal housing. The impact was hard enough for one of the terminal screws to punch a hole through the top cover of air conditioner. I waited weeks for this unit to be in stock again and now they want me to wait weeks more to get a replacement. as for the quality of the unit itself: unknown since I can't get a fully functional unit to install. Probably going with a Furion or Dometic at this point.



by:

Advent 15000 BTU AC. Best price I could find on the internet or anywhere else for that matter. I received the unit 4 days earlier than expected which was a good thing. The installation, including getting it on the roof, was about 30 minutes. The Advent was a direct replacement for a 4/5-year-old Dometic Brisk II that quit cooling. The Advent is slightly quitter that the Dometic but of course that is only my subjective opinion. On low speed you can continue an intelligible conversation. The Advent has been installed 3 days now and it is working great.
I have purchased from etrailer in the past and have been completely satisfied. There are three concern/issues that need to be mention/address. (1) Packaging could have been better. The box it came in looked like it had been rolling around in the back of a UPS truck. (2) There was no installation instruction or owner’s manual whatsoever that came with the unit. I pulled mine off the internet. (3) the unit had minor damage on the base or main frame of the unit (I hope it does not cause issue later). The damage was not so bad as to cause forgoing the installation. Since the shipping box did not show any noticeable damage at the location of the damage on the unit, I can only assume that it was shipped by etrailer that way which is a QC issue.



by:

The unit was very easy to replace. The old unit was a 13,500 Btu Dometic. I was told (by etrailer) this unit would be a plug and play type since I had a previous Dometic system. Both units have the same wiring system, and they do. I simply unplugged the quick connect from old unit, removed the cooling sensor from the fins, removed the 4 bolts securing the unit to the RV, replaced the old unit with the new upgraded Advent #ACM150 15,000 Btu unit. Repeated the procedure in reverse with the new unit and the process was complete. I'm 'EXTREMELY PLEASED' with the new Advent unit and the ease of switching both units out. I Highly recommend 'etrailer' for Quick delivery Service, Reasonable Price and Professionalism. P.S. I apologize for not taking picture's /video of procedure.



by:

The last 2 AC replacements I had to do I went with Advent instead of Dometic for several rteasons including quality and price. And etrailer has the very best customer service and prices around! Good AC at a good price with good service. What more could you asl for?

  • Does Roof Thickness Need to be 2-1/2 to 5 Inches Thick to Use Advent ACCAR135
    Yes, you can indeed use your existing plenum and air distribution box to replace your Carrier with the Advent Air Replacement RV Air Conditioner for Carrier Setup w/ Start Capacitor - 13,500 Btu - White # ACCAR135. However, it still requires a 2-1/2" to 5" roof thickness, so you'd have to build out your roof (where your AC is) with some kind of supports to install the Advent # ACCAR135.
