Is this right for you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

Yes, if you:

  • Are replacing an Advent or Dometic AC unit
  • Have a dark RV exterior and prefer a black AC on the roof to match
  • Have a ducted RV or one that is partitioned off - higher CFMs will push air throughout the rig

No, if you:

  • Are adding an AC where one didn't exist before
  • Go boondocking frequently and need a capacitor to make it easier on your generator
  • Camp in humid or super hot areas that require more cooling power (Btus) to stay comfortable, especially with pets or kids
This AC unit lets you replace an existing AC or add a new AC to your RV or camper. It works with your existing Advent Air, Dometic, Coleman Mach, or Carrier air distribution box and thermostat - adapter wiring kit (sold separately) may be required. Lowest Prices for the best rv air conditioners from Advent Air. Advent Air RV Air Conditioner - 13,500 Btu - Black part number ACM135B can be ordered online at etrailer.com or call 800-298-1624 for expert service.

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

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.

We are very happy with the Roof top air conditioner we purchased for our RV. Thank you Tommy for advising us to get the start capacitor also. It was a great recommendation. Installation was a breeze. Having the extra AC has been great keeping us cool on these really hot almost 100 degree summer days. Thank you e-trailer.

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


Installing was quick and efficient. At first when I hookup up unit on the inside, it was blowing hot air. After purchasing the advent air distribution unit without thermostat, everything runs smoothly. I love my unit. This my first time installing everything. I would buy again, if my second unit goes out. Great replacement for carrier unit.

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


This was a replacement for a Carrier V 15,000 roof top. Still using the Carrier control panel and ducting. Runs and cools good but cycles more than our older advent air 13k ductless in the bedroom. Cycling may be caused by the ducting instead of ductless. It is quieter than the old Carrier V and seems to cool the same.

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


When I ordered a rooftop ac, I was informed it may take up to 3 months for delivery. I rec'd the ac in less than 3 weeks so was extremely satisfied. 3 of us installed which went very smoothly all within 45 minutes. The ac has been working fine ever since. Also etrailer's price was a 1/3 less than [outdoors store]

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


The AC in itself is a little smaller than the one that it replaced and also a little noiser. The install was fairly simple and speedy it 1hour and 10 minutes to get up and running and would have been quicker if the start capacitor would have been installed at the factory, but all n all a simple install.

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


I have tried to get this thing to run for over a year now. I'm on the third thermostat, I've checked the 12V voltage and the 110 voltage and both are good. I've wired it as per the manual and it still will not run. It will start, but will not continue running. I get an E5 code which is a communications error between the thermostat and control box or low voltage. Followed up on both and still not finding the problem. Nothing I try seems to work. My next move is to return it on warranty. I'll let you know how that goes. Right now I'm not a happy camper (pun intended).


Comments
The best way to troubleshoot the issue is to have a technician come take a look. If you would like to talk through the error code with the manufacturer their number is 800-688-3135.

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


AIR CONDITIONER ARRIVED IN 3-4 DAYS AS EXPECTED. PACKAGE LOOKED TO BE IN GOOD SHAPE. UPS DIDN'T COPY MY NAME OVER TO THE SHIPPING ADDRESS, ONLY THE LOT #. HAD A RV REPAIR PERSON THAT DOES WORK IN THE CAMPGROUND INSTALL IT FOR ME. WE USED A LADDER AND ROPE TO SLIDE IT UP TO THE ROOF OF OUR 2003 CARRIAGE CAMEO 5TH WHEEL. ONE PERSON PUSHING IT UP AND ONE PULLING. IT WORKED VERY WELL. THE NEW ONE BOLTED DOWN AND HOOKED UP JUST LIKE IT SAID IN THE DIRECTIONS. TOOK A LITTLE BIT TO HOOK UP THE ADAPTER CABLES AND INSTALL THE EXTRA CAPCITOR FOR WE WERE REPLACING A CARRIER AIR V MODEL, BUT NO SERIOUS PROBLEMS. TOOK A TOTAL OF ABOUT TWO HOURS FOR TOTAL PROJECT. COULD HAVE DONE IT MYSELF IF I WASN'T HAVING A BACK PROBLEM. SEEMS TO RUN FINE EXCEPT FOR I WISH THE BLOWER WOULDN'T RUN ALL THE TIME, EVEN WHEN THE COMPRESSOR ISN'T RUNNING. MY OLD CARRIER DID THE SAME THING. I DON'T KNOW WHETHER THERE IS A WAY TO CHANGE THAT OR NOT. I DIDN'T TAKE ANY PICTURES WHILE INSTALLING IT BUT WILL TRY AND TAKE A PICTURE OF THE NEW ONE INSTALLED.


Comments
Seems to be good! i dont use it much in the summer but use it a lot in the winter down south. still would like it to shut off when the compressor isnt running.

Sir's, I purchased the replacement rooftop unit and installed it for my girlfriend, as best as we can tell the unit is working as it was designed to, though my girlfriend did say it seemed to be a bit noisier than the old unit. Thats the only thing she has had to say, that it does cool good in the living room area. Thank you for Ur following up e-mail , Rick Hardman

The new advent replacement works well! very cold! came in good condition also,no dents or scratches!! price was right. Would order from etrailer again!!

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


I upgraded from my Dometic 13500 Brisk 2 to the Advent 15000. The installation was flawless, but, the installation is not entirely seamless. My Dometic had a two speed fan while the Advent 15000 has a three speed fan. I believe that the Advent is running on the medium and low speed. The unit cannot defeat the Florida heat. At 99F the unit only dropped the temp 8 degrees. The air at the registers seem to be cold, but, the airflow was not what I expected from the 15000 unit. I’m hoping that the Advent ACTH12 thermostat will work. It doesn’t appear that etrailer sells them without the AC cover. Without the initial high airflow to defeat the heat, this unit will not make muster in the south. To be fair, I’m giving a 5 for the customer service and swift shipping. All the guys got me this far, they are terrific. I submitted a question for the additional information needed to get it right. I checked all the QA&A and comments for anyone that has experienced my problem. A couple fellows upgraded but said it was all good without mentioning the three speed difference. My guess is that they live in a cooler climate or don’t realize the 15000 has three speeds. If I get the Advent thermostat and it solves my problem I will readdress my comment and also update the Q&A page.

That said, the Advent air conditioners that will work as replacements are the same no matter if you have a Carrier or Dometic, the only difference will be if you need the Carrier adapter or not.
