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.

Video Transcript for Advent Air Rooftop RV Air Conditioner Review

You're going to be taking a look at Advent Air rooftop RV air conditioner, part number ACM135.You can see its very nice, sleek look. It's got a nice thick cover on it to keep the elements out. It's going to have a cooling capacity of 13,500 BTU per hour, so it's really going to cool your RV down fast and keep it that way. You can hear the AC unit running. It's pretty quiet.The dimensions of the whole unit are going to be 24 and 7/8, by 31 and 3/16, by 12 and 13/16. This unit is only going to weigh approximately 68 pounds, and it's going to require an opening in your roof that's 14 and 1/4 by 14 and 1/4.One thing that's really great about this air conditioner is it's not going to take any additional sealer to go around our hole.

This thick gasket, or foam, is going to seal that gap.One thing you may want to look into, it's called a start capacitor. And what that does is, when you start up your unit, some of the units, with them being as heavy-duty as they are will start up really slow, and it'll take a minute to lock cold air. A start capacitor basically acts like a jump starter, so that when you hit the on button in the RV, this thing is going to kick on right away and it's going to blow out a blast of cold air for you.This is what our inside vent cover looks like once it's installed. You're going to have your return side, and then where it says push here on each side of this tab, this comes down. All your wiring's right up inside of there.

This side is where your AC is going to blow out. Now this particular unit is for RVs and campers that already have ducts run into this area, to where you can close off each one of these and it just blows through the vents that run through the RV. Or you can open them, each one of these little slide vents, and it will actually blow air straight into the room here on top of blowing some air through the vent ducts.That'll do it for a look at Advent Air rooftop RV air conditioner.

Review from a similar Advent Air 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

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.

Arrived very fast only took about 3 days to get here really simple to install the hardest part was getting unit on top of RV and that wasn’t to hard by myself only took about 45 minutes and it blowing around 50 degrees over 100 dollars less than local RV dealer great product would buy again but hope I never have to 641655

Review from a similar Advent Air 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

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

Incredibly fast shipping, all packaging was intact with no damage. Items were easy to install. Biggest chore was lifting it on to the roof of the camper. Every time I've used E-trailer they have provided exceptional products and fast shipping. Great company 596813

Review from a similar Advent Air 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.

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.

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

Amazing product, I will definitely recommend Advent to all my RV friends. Extremely easy to install, just a little to heavy to get up a ladder alone so i used a tractor to lift the unit to the roof of my RV, 4 bolts on the inside to remove and the wiring harness and off with the pos demetic, placed the Advent right in place bolted it down turned it on and instantly got cold air, very cold air! Only thing you have to install which I think the factory could do but, was easy. 516122

This is a direct replacement for a unit that I have. A tree branch put a hole in the condenser. This was not the fault of the unit. I was able to remove the six Phillips head screws on the inside shroud, unplug two cables and remove four 10mm bolts, then remove the old unit. once the old unit was out of the way place the new unit in place and reverse the process. I think the whole process took me 30 minutes to complete. It works just as well as any other unit I have owned. 518681

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

Review from a similar Advent Air 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

Review from a similar Advent Air AC Unit in RV Air Conditioners


It did come fast. If you are replacing an existing AC unit (even a Dometic unit) you will also need the ACDB ceiling vent assembly, as your old vent will not work with this. That begs the question - why do they even offer the ACDOM150 ? What you need is the ACM150C. I ordered the ACDOM150, then learned the hard way I also need the new vent. Had to place a new order for the vent. Wasted time and money for shipping on the 2nd order. Not nice to learn this after the struggle to heft the AC unit onto the roof of my RV. 651277

Do you have a question about this RV Air Conditioner?


  • Parts Needed to Install Advent Air Rooftop RV Air Conditioner # ACM135 in RV
  • With the Advent Air Rooftop RV Air Conditioner # ACM135 that you referenced you will need to also get the interior vent setup part # ACDB which comes with a thermostat as well.

  • Adding a Heat Strip to Advent AC Units
  • The Advent Air Electric Heat Strip - 5,500 Btu # ACMHD can be added to many of the Advent Air Conditioner Units. It can be added to the following to take the chill out of the air: # ACM135 - 13,500 BTU White Air Conditioner # ACM135B - 13,500 BTU Black Air Conditioner # ACM150 - 15,000 BTU White Air Conditioner # ACM150B - 15,000 BTU Black Air Conditioner I also recommend getting the start capacitor # ACMSCKIT to allow you to start your AC without any additional current draw needed...

  • Installation Instructions for Advent Air Rooftop RV Air Conditioner # ACM135
  • There is not a standard plug available that would allow you to plug the Advent Air Rooftop RV Air Conditioner # ACM135 right to an extension cord. The unit will need to be hardwired using the included wiring and hardware. I have attached the complete installation instructions that you can use for reference. To complete the installation you will also need a ceiling vent and thermostat like part # ACDB.

  • Recommended Air Conditioner for 26x7-1/2 Foot Enclosed Racing Trailer
  • For your 26x7-1/2 inch enclosed trailer, based on your photo you will want two units. If you simply want to replace the unit, I recommend the Advent Air RV Air Conditioner w/ Ceiling Vent and Start Capacitor - White # ACM135C. This will give you the roof top unit, the vent assembly with built in thermostat, and a start capacitor to make sure you can start the unit even when the shore power is at an amperage that isn't strong enough for most systems to start. The capacitor helps with...

  • White Advent Air Rooftop RV Air Conditioner Unit Recommendation Plus Install Kit
  • The white version of the Advent Air Rooftop AC Unit part # ACM153B is the part # ACM135. To install this you'll also need the thermostat and vent kit part # AT15021 and you'd be set!

  • Will a Small Honda Generator be Able to Run the Advent Air RV Air Conditioner # ACM135
  • The Advent Air Rooftop RV Air Conditioner # ACM135 has a wattage rating of 1,450 watts so that would seem to be enough but you really need to look at the amps as well to make sure that your Honda generator can handle the draw. This unit has a 15 amp rating for when it is running but for startup the amp rating is 45 amps. I do recommend installing the Start Capacitor # ACMSCKIT as well. This stores energy to help with the startup draw and is typically helpful for when you are at a campsite...

  • Amperage Draw of Advent Air Conditioner part # ACM135 When Using Start Capacitor
  • The Advent Air Conditioner part # ACM135 has a running amperage draw of 15 amps and a starting amperage draw of 45. If you were to use the Start Capacitor for Advent Air RV Air Conditioners # ACMSCKIT too then the start amperage draw would drop down to 15 amps.

  • 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.

  • Air Recirculation When Using RV Rooftop Air Conditioner on Ducted or Non-Ducted System
  • The Advent Air Rooftop RV Air Conditioner - 13,500 Btu - White # ACM135 will recirculate interior air. It does utilize an air return with filter so the evaporator coil doesn't get plugged with dirt and affect the performance of the unit. I've attached the installation details to assist. This can be used with either ducted # ACRG15 or non ducted # AT15021 assemblies. You should not

With this capacitor, you can start the unit with that Honda generator and run it, because it uses stores the power needed for that additional power surge needed at start up.

  • The Advent Air Rooftop RV Air Conditioner part # ACM135 for 13,500 Btu's or part # ACM150 for 15,000 Btu's are both available and ready for purchase. The Coleman Adapter Kit part # ACCOLKIT that you referenced is for Coleman units so it will not be needed to replace your Carrier.

  • If by replacement fan and motor you mean the Ceiling Vent Assembly # ACDB for non-ducted or # ACRG15 for ducted RVs then we carry those as the above mentioned part numbers. These are compatible with the Advent Air Rooftop RV Air Conditioner # ACM135. We don't carry any replacement grommets or mounting hardware for any of our Advent units so you would need to source that elsewhere. The closest thing that you may have meant by grommet is a seal like part # A10-1414 which is 3/4" thick...

  • Does Advent Air Rooftop RV Air Conditioner # ACM135 Come with Heat Strip
  • The Advent Air Rooftop RV Air Conditioner # ACM135 doesn't come with a heat strip directly but you can add one with part # ACMHD. This is a great combination that can be controlled by the Ceiling Vent Assembly # ACDB. Attached are some installation videos for you to check out as well.

  • Does the Advent 13,500 Btu RV Air Conditioner Come With a Start Capacitor
  • The Advent Air RV Air Conditioner part # ACM135 does not come with any sort of integrated start capacitor but this can be added using the Start Capacitor for Advent Air RV Air Conditioners part # ACMSCKIT. The start capacitor will bring down the amps required to start the unit which will help ease the strain on your generator as well as when you have it hooked up to shore power. I highly recommend adding one as it is a very cost effective, worthy investment.

  • What All Is Needed To Install An Advent Air Rooftop RV Air Conditioner ACM135
  • In order to install the Advent Air Rooftop RV Air Conditioner part # ACM135 you will also need a ceiling vent and thermostat. If you have a non-ducted trailer then you can use the Ceiling Vent Assembly with Built In Thermostat part # ACDB but if you have a ducted trailer then you will need the Ceiling Vent Assembly with Wall Mounted Thermostat part # ACRG15. If you are trying to use an existing ceiling vent and thermostat then please let me know what that is as there may be an adapter for...

  • AC Unit Recommendation for Enclosed Cargo Trailer that is Insulated
  • The Advent Air Rooftop RV Air Conditioner # ACM135 that you referenced would work great for your application but since you'll also need the ceiling vent and thermostat your best option is the # ACM135C which is a kit that includes that as well. This will give you great cooling for the smaller room and since you've done a great job insulating the room it will stay cool longer and easier. I am sure some people have successfully ran a generator while travelling but we do not recommend it....

  • Non-Ducted Air Conditioner for Food Trailer
  • The Advent Air Rooftop RV Air Conditioner # ACM135B is actually just the outside part of the AC unit and wouldn't be considered either ducted or non-ducted but you're on the right track! What you need along with Air Conditioner # ACM135B - which is Black in color but also available in White at part # ACM135 - is Ceiling Vent Assembly # ACDB to give you a non-ducted AC unit. The vent assembly will install in a 14-1/4" long x 14-1/4" wide opening in your roof and will be inside your food...

  • How to Determine if Advent Air Conditioner Will Fit Trailer
  • It is highly likely that you can use the Advent AC where the vent is now on your car trailer, though we do not have any specific blueprints or diagrams or any way to know the size of your trailer's vent opening. In order to use the Advent Air Rooftop RV Air Conditioner # ACM135 (White) or # ACM135B (Black) you would need the Ceiling Vent Assembly # ACDB and these will fit a roof opening of 14-1/4" long x 14-1/4" wide, which is the standard size opening for trailer vents so it is very...

  • Generator Recommendation to Power Advent Air RV Air Conditioner # ACM135
  • The Advent Air RV Air Conditioners # ACM135 that you referenced draws 1,450 watts. A 2,000 watt Honda generator would easily work to power this. We have a 2,000 watt generator from A-iPower part # 289-SUA2000i that would also work and cost less than a Honda.

  • Will the Advent Air Rooftop RV Air Conditioner Work with a Coleman AC/Furnace Wall Thermostat
  • 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. Therefore, the Coleman wall thermostat would be used to control your furnace and the Advent wall thermostat would...

  • AC Unit Recommendation for 28 Foot Enclosed Trailer
  • Based on the square footage of your trailer and the hot climate you'd easily get by with a 13,500 btu unit like the Atwood # AT15025-21. The Atwood units blow much colder air than the Advents, plus this kit comes with the ceiling unit so that you can control it since your trailer wouldn't have ceiling ducts.

  • Recommended Air Conditioning Unit for an Enclosed Trailer
  • The most cost effective air conditioning unit we have for your enclosed trailer is the Advent Air Rooftop RV Air Conditioner part # ACM135.

  • Wiring Heat Strip and Advent AC Unit to Thermostat
  • The Advent 135 # ACM135 that you have is designed to replace a Coleman AC unit that uses a thermostat. You can wire up the unit with the heat strip part # ACMHD to the thermostat you currently have if you want. I attached a diagram that shows how it wires to the thermostat for you to check out.

  • Is the Advent Air RV Air Conditioner A Replacement for the Duo-Therm Brisk Air Air Conditioner
  • Yes, the Advent Air RV Air Conditioner part # ACM135 is a direct replacement for the Duo-Therm Brisk Air Air Conditioner and you can reuse your existing ceiling vent and thermostat. There are no adapters needed for this either.

  • How to Install the Advent Air Rooftop RV Air Conditioner # ACM135 on an Enclosed Car Trailer
  • I do have something that you can reference but so far (May 2019) we haven't had the opportunity to install an AC unit like the Advent Air # ACM135 on an enclosed trailer like what you have. We have, however, installed the MaxxFan Deluxe Roof Vent # MA00-06200K on a 2018 Nissan NV 2500 which I have linked the installation video for you to check out. In this video we use some plywood to take up some gaps and to give some more stability to the vent unit. Since both the MaxxFan and the Advent...

  • Will 13,500 BTU Advent Air Rooftop RV Air Conditioner Work with Dometic Duo Thermostat System
  • As long as your Dometic system is one of the following current model Dometic A/C relay kits the Advent Air Rooftop RV Air Conditioner # ACM135 will work: Analog Model - #3107541.009 and #3107541.017 Comfort Control Center - Model #3109226.005 If you have an older system then you will need to upgrade it a new system like the Ceiling Vent Assembly with Wall Mounted Thermostat # ACRG15.

  • Will Advent Air Replace Dometic DuoTherm Brisk II AC Unit
  • The Advent Air Rooftop RV Air Conditioner # ACM135 has connectors that match up with Dometic AC unit wiring. Since your DuoTherm Brisk II is a Dometic AC unit the Advent 13.5K will install directly in its place and you can use the same controls. 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.

  • Is Gasket Included with Advent Air Rooftop RV Air Conditioner
  • The Advent Air Rooftop RV Air Conditioner # ACM135 includes the needed thick foam gasket to create a tight seal with the RV's roof. You will not need to obtain this separately. I have attached a short video demonstration on this unit that you can check out as well. The installer briefly points this gasket out at about the 50 second mark.

  • Troubleshooting 13,500 Btu Advent Air RV Air Conditioner Not Blowing Cold Air
  • I reached out to my contact at Advent who said that there are a variety of things that could be causing the issue you are experiencing with the Advent Air RV Air Conditioner # ACM135C. Some of these include problems with the ducts, not taping everything off correctly, or possibly no voltage to the blue wire for powering the compressor. If you are familiar with troubleshooting AC units then you can check these things otherwise it would be best to take your setup in to a service center as...
