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.

Great response time . Haven't installed yet but it appears to be in perfect condition. 642380

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

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


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 Advent Air 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.

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

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.

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


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

Ask the Experts about this Advent Air RV Air Conditioners

Do you have a question about this RV Air Conditioner?


  • 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...

  • AC Unit Recommendation for Enclosed Race Trailer
  • I prefer the Atwood AC units over the Advent Air ones as they tend to blow colder air. For a single unit I'd go with the 15k BTU Atwood part # AT15025-21 which is for non-ducted applications like your enclosed trailer. This also has a heat pump too so if you were ever cold you could warm up.

  • What Type of Generator is Required to Powered AC Unit of Trailer
  • The etrailer 2,000-Watt Portable Inverter Generator # 333-0001 could power a smaller 13.5 btu AC unit if it had a start capacitor like the Advent part # ACM135CH but most AC units require more watts than what this can put out upon start up. The start capacitor of this allows it to draw 1,450 watts on start up and when running whereas the Atwood # AT15025-21 draws 3,795 watts on startup and then 1,265 watts once running as it does not have a capacitor. So if you have an AC unit that...

  • RV Air Conditioner Unit for 2019 250 Ram Pro Master Converted to Camper Van
  • 13,500 btu AC unit like the # ACM135CH won't be overkill to the point of being a problem for your 2019 250 Ram Pro Master cargo van that you plan to convert to a camper van. This size AC unit is recommended for smaller sized campers which wouldn't be that much larger than what your setup will be. This means the unit will easily covering your cooling needs.

  • Wattage for Advent Air Rooftop RV Air Conditioner
  • The Advent Air Rooftop RV Air Conditioner w/ Vent, Start Capacitor, and Heat Strip # ACM135CH draws 1,450 watts; it is a 13,500 Btu per hour unit that has enough capacity for 550 square feet, conservatively.

  • Will 13,500 Btu Advent Air Rooftop RV Air Conditioner be Sufficient for 98 Square Foot Trailer
  • For your travel trailer that is only 98 square feet, the Advent Air Rooftop RV Air Conditioner w/ Vent # ACM135CH that you referenced should have plenty of capacity with its 13,500 Btu per hour cooling capacity. Generally speaking this Btu per hour capacity is sufficient for a space that is up to around 550 square feet, so this should do a really nice job for your application. The air conditioner itself measures 24-7/8 inches long, 31-3/16 inches wide, and 12-13/16 inches tall. This...

  • Does The Advent Air Conditioner Have A Thermostat and Can I Power it With My Champion Generator
  • Yes, The Advent Air Rv Air Conditioner part # ACM135CH does come with a built-in thermostat that controls the fan setting and temperature of the air conditioner. The Champion generator you referenced features 3400 starting watts and 3100 running watts. The air conditioner uses 1450 starting and running watts so the generator is more than sufficient to power the air conditioner.

  • Yes, a Honda 2,200 generator will easily power the Advent Air RV Air Conditioner with Ceiling Vent and Start Capacitor part # ACM135CH. The Generac 3000i would work too. This AC unit draws 1,450 watts so either generator would power this unit with wattage to spare. Since this has a start capacitor you don't have to worry about a surge of wattage requirements on start up.

This will do a really nice job of cooling this size space with a capability to cool 500 cubic feet per minute.

  • Can Advent Air RV Air Conditioner Be Ran in Fan Mode Only
  • The Advent Air RV Air Conditioner you referneced, part # ACM135CH can be ran in FAN mode only. You'd adjust the thermostat to the warmer settings then set the fan to the desired level. This will operate the fan without the A/C compressor. This is mentioned on page 12 of the owner's manual which I've linked for you to look over.
