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

Yes, if you:

  • Have a trailer that doesn't have an AC unit or maybe needs a 2nd for backup
  • Sometimes get cool in your RV overnight and need a bit of heat to warm up
  • Want a lightweight AC to make installation easier

No, if you:

  • Travel to the South in the summer and need something to contend with blazing heat or swampy humidity
  • Stay in your RV long-term and need an actual heater rather than the small heat strip on this unit
  • Prefer to have extra components like the heat strip and capacitor already installed in the AC unit
Ductless AC unit lets you replace an existing AC or add a new AC to your RV. The air distribution box has a built-in thermostat, the start capacitor jumpstarts the AC when you need a boost, and the electric heat strip keeps you warm on cold mornings.

This Advent Air AC unit lets you replace an existing, old or broken air conditioner or add a new air conditioner to an area on your RV or camper that doesn't already have one. 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. For your convenience, the included air distribution box has a built-in thermostat that lets you set the fan speed and temperature. It also operates the electric heat strip, which helps keep you warm on a cold morning. 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 or add an AC unit is included, which makes installation simple and easy.


Air Distribution Box and Thermostat

Advent Air Air Distribution Box

The AC unit includes an air distribution box with a built-in thermostat. The dial on the left controls the 3 fan speed settings, which let you increase or decrease the airflow. It also controls the 3 cool settings and the heat setting. The dial on the right allows you to set the temperature. Additionally, there are adjustable registers on the front and back of the box. These can be tilted up, down, or side-to-side for directing the air where needed. The removable air filter prevents dust and dirt from building up on the fan blades.


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.


Electric Heat Strip

Advent Air Electric Heat Strip

The electric heat strip keeps your RV warm on a cold or frosty morning. It is operated with the control dial on the air distribution box. After you turn the dial to the OPT. HEAT setting, the compressor will shut off, and the fan will blow air over the heater and into your RV. When the optimal temperature has been reached, turn the dial to a fan or cooling setting. Please also note that the heat strip only has one temperature setting and cannot be controlled by the thermostat.


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.


To install the heat strip, mount it to the evaporator inside the AC unit with the included mounting screws. The heat strip has easy, plug-and-play installation with the supplied 30" power cord. Please note that the heat strip should be installed before the air distribution box is installed.


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

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.


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.

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!

Put it in my bedroom, really helps on those 90 degree plus days. Only thing I don’t like is when it’s on the fan runs all the time. May replace my aging main dometic unit in the near future

Installed on used short school bus, partially converted to an RV. The unit was relatively easy to install. It looks good and runs great, however I should have bought a larger unit. The interior of the bus is approximately 150 square feet so I thought 13500 btu would be more than adequate. While it does not quite keep up with this Louisiana heat, it is much better with it than without. The bus did not come with factory ac, so I installed a generator on the bus so I can run the unit while driving.

Everything worked great. Install was easy replacing a vent on my trailer. One problem was that the knob won’t stay put on the control. Never worked. It barely grips the post and falls off after the unit starts running for only a few minutes. So far it hasn’t dropped into my coffee so that’s good. Unit functions just fine though. I like the start capacitor as it can run on most lower amp services at campgrounds and in my driveway on a regular ext cord.

Air conditioner was a breeze to install, as were the heat strip and the capacitor. This setup does run off a 2000 watt generator as I hoped. Have not used the heat strip as of this posting.

The air conditioner actually came sooner than I thought it would and was easy to install in the place of the vent. The manufacturer needs to put directions in for installing the optional heater strips since there were none included in the package. I had to look it up online.

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.

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


Hello .. My first unit came damaged ref # 111032829. I contacted Matt who helped me out. However the replacement unit took several weeks to arrive part was back ordered . I am sure the unit was damaged before it was put into the box as the outside of the box showed no damage . Ps the main frame was bent and a portion of the copper tube on the evaporator as damaged, unit is not repairable . Anyway the new unit was delivered yesterday and it came with FRAGLE STICKERS on the box good idea . I am very please with getting the replacement unit .. I have to say the people I talked with at etrailer we very helpful and I will purchase from them again ...

  • Could Solar Panels Power Advent AC Unit on RV
    If the solar panel could provide 15 amps of 12 volt power the Advent Air RV Air Conditioner # ACM135CH could be ran off of it. Since solar panel as a direct power source can fluctuate depending on access to sunlight it's not the wisest to run it straight off of a solar panel and instead having a battery bank get charged from the panel which then provides the power for the AC unit. Or use a generator like # 333-0003. For a panel setup that has the amperage you'd need we have the part...
