This Advent Air AC unit lets you replace an old or broken air conditioner on your RV or camper. It works with your existing Advent Air or Dometic air distribution box, and it is compatible with Coleman Mach or Carrier setups if used with an adapter wiring kit (ACCOLKIT, ACCARKIT - sold separately). 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. And everything you need in order to replace or add an AC unit is included, which makes installation simple and easy.


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


And in order to fully complete installation, this AC needs to be paired with your existing Advent Air, Dometic, Coleman Mach, or Carrier air distribution box and thermostat. Please note that an adapter wiring kit (sold separately) is needed if you are replacing a Coleman Mach or Carrier air conditioner.


Additional Accessories

Additional accessories can be purchased separately to improve the performance of your Advent Air AC unit. The start capacitor (ACMSCKIT) improves the performance of your AC by using stored energy to jumpstart it. And the electric heat strip (ACMHD) removes the chill on cold or frosty mornings in your RV, ensuring you stay comfortable. Please note that the heat strip will only work on Advent Air AC units.

Had to order a new upper unit, my old one would not cool. New one came in 6 days. my son and I installed new unit, the worse part was getting it up on the roof. After that it was smooth sailing!

Review from a similar AC Unit in RV Air Conditioners


I'm planning on using my trailer as a workshop so heat and AC were important. This AC unit was easy to install into the existing 14x14 vent. Took me about an hour to install and everything went smoothly. My trailer is 28 ft long so I'm thinking that I'll be needing a 2nd unit at the far end. I'll decide that after I'm finished insulating the walls. I've already put in 2 inches of rigid foam on the roof and that alone made a huge difference. 655942


Comments
AC works well but I recently upgraded this unit to the remote thermostat so that I would have more precise temperature control. Upgrading was easy just bought the part from etrailer and installed. I definitely do need a 2nd unit which I hope to do soon.

Review from a similar AC Unit in RV Air Conditioners


As with other orders, the generator showed up on time and in good shape. The etrailer videos were very clear as to remove the old AC and replace it with the new Advent unit. The etrailer videos also showed to install the capacitor, the heat strip, and the distribution box. We were worried about getting the unit on the roof of the camper however it really was not a problem ….. we leaned a ladder up against the camper, tied a rope around the box, then leaned the box against the ladder. One person got on the roof and pulled the rope while two more people pushed from below... no problems and in about a minute the box was on the roof. The unit is now installed and looks good …. no power at the storage yard so I can only assume that the unit works as it is supposed to (like ever thing else we have ever ordered from etrailer). Good Job guys! 644424

Review from a similar AC Unit in RV Air Conditioners


I am surprised by the missing inside grill cover. I thought the AC unit would come with a new trim cover for the inside. I used the old one and it doesn’t fit correctly so it’s just hanging there. Does this AC not come with a trim cover for the inside? 765183

Received Advent Air Replacement Rooftop RV Air Conditioner for Carrier Setup 15,000 Btu White- ACCAR150 in excellent condition by UPS. Replaced one of my old Carrier Air V air conditioners on my 32' Damon Daybreak motor home. It was easy to install and the conversion kit that came with it worked very well. Quiet even when running on high speed. Used the same remote and ceiling mount I had with my Carrier Air Conditioner. 528083

Review from a similar AC Unit in RV Air Conditioners


I’ve had the advent ac unit for a year now and love it . Our fifth wheel was preprep for the second ac unit so it was simple to install. We use it mostly to cool the rig down after set up and on those hot humid nights or when the outside temps shot up in the afternoons . But yes I would recommend this unit . In fact if the need would ever arise I’m would order the direct replacement for the factory installed Dometic unit on the rear . Shipping was fast with no damage. 664585

My review is on Lori at etrailer, when I ordered my advent a/c unit I knew it would not be available for 6 to 8 weeks,she kept me informed & when they received a shipment let me know, delivery was quick. Thank you Lori for keeping me informed . Due to travel I won't be installing the unit till spring so I can't review it at this time. I have bought from etrailer in the past & will again in the future, Great job. 572881

I bought this for a 1983 ford shasta r/v Took about 1 1/2 hours to install. would have been less time but I had to reroute the 12/2/ rx to the other side. Was very easy to install. So next time I hit a very low tree branch and rip off my a/c unit I will get another one here!!! 489289

Review from a similar AC Unit in RV Air Conditioners


My husband installed this as a second air conditioner in our 5th wheel. Installation took a little longer than expected due to getting the inside template to line up with the main unit. Also, it is pretty noisy on medium and high; however, that doesn’t bother us as we like to sleep with “white noise”. Overall, it cools well and is a fairly straightforward installation with minor adjustments needed. If you are mechanically inclined, installation should not be an issue. 647387

Review from a similar AC Unit in RV Air Conditioners


This unit can't be beat if you are replacing a stock Coleman--Avery straightforward installation. Airflow is better than my old Coleman but temperature is not. I've taken 3 trips with this Advent on Summer days with temperatures in the 90s, and in all cases the output temperature never got cooler than 60. The old Coleman could blow 50 degrees. 551026


Comments
Where are you measuring the 60°? According to the manufacturer, ASA Electronics, if your trailer has a ducted system, its possible that theres a leak in the ductwork. The best way to rule out the AC unit itself is to measure the output air temperature right as it leaves the unit.

Review from a similar AC Unit in RV Air Conditioners


The unit seems to be a top of the line quality product. Installation was fairly straight forward except the instructions are outdated. Instructions tell you to remove the receiver cover to prep it for mounting the Coleman control panel. The cover is not removable, it's now a high density foam. Also the supplied hardware is not long enough to go through the cover. The photos in the instructions are very hard to determine what they are of. 510096


Comments
Labor Day weekend 2018 we were camping at a site in direct sunlight. While running the unit on high we experienced a smell of something electrical over heating. I feel that the compressor failed. I have been in touch with the company and have the location of the nearest service location but have not been able to take the RV there yet. There is a 2 year warrantee so it shouldnt be a problem just an inconvenience.

SUPER pleased with the product. It was exactly as described and performs exactly as expected. The installation was simple, do-it-yourself, (less than 30 min) using 1 screwdriver and 1 nutdriver. The 15,000 btu unit cools my 41' park model in less than 20 min. Super quiet, and efficient. This unit was used to replace a Dometic Duo Therm and I did not have to modify anything...straight plug and play! Many thanks to the team at etrailer for the great service and lightning fast shipping! I will definitely be a loyal future customer. 540255

Being from Hawaii could have is disadvantages when trying to get items shipped here. Thanks to Dena from etrailer my customer as well as myself are very happy. My customer was specific to what type of product they wanted because they were very pleased with it in the past and gave me the task of finding it and getting it shipped here. After a few failed attempts from other vendors Dena not only came through for me but expedited my shipment and saved me close to $500.00 in air freight charges. Thank you Dena and her team for the great service!!. I look forward to doing business with etrailer in the future. 707862

This unit replaced our Dometic A/C with the CCC2 thermostat. The Advent harness plunged directly into the power supply. The only thing I did extra was took off the old outside temp sensor on the Dometic and placed it on the Advent unit. We were receiving an E4 error on the thermostat until I did that. So far so good. 90deg outside and we keep it at 75 with no problems. Only time will tell. 837224

  • Is 13,500 Btu Advent Air Conditioner Compatible with Ducted RV System
    The Advent Air RV Air Conditioner # ACM135 is compatible with both ducted or non-ducted systems so it will work great with your RV! Since Duo-Therm is a Dometic product this AC unit should work with your control box as Advent made sure their products works with Dometic AC units. I do recommend also installing the Start Capacitor # ACMSCKIT as well. This stores energy needed to start the Advent unit so that you aren't pulling a lot of power just to start your AC unit.
