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 15,000 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.


Advent Air Warranty Coverage

2-Year limited warranty covers defective units when installed correctly on approved applications. The warranty does not cover units installed incorrectly. To ensure air conditioner is installed correctly, please see the questionnaire pdf below. A filled-out questionnaire is required for warranty coverage.


If you are not comfortable using a voltmeter (or removing the charge from the start capacitor), youll want to make a service appointment with your local RV dealer to verify the installation. Print the pdfs below (warranty- questionnaire, warranty dealer information) and take them along with the RV to your local dealer. ASA does compensate dealers for warranty work as outlined in the dealer information pdf. You may be charged by the dealer for time spent investigating the installation.

I don't know about longevity however I replaced 2 Dometic Brisk 2 systems on a camper I bought that needed a little more than tlc. It is a 2 zone Dometic system and these plugged right up. Only had them in a for a few days but they work great! Very pleased. I am hoping they last. Shipping was FAST and Etrailer kept me up to date on status. They were also very helpful with questions I had to make sure they would work with my system. I think these are actually quieter than the Dometics I replaced. Not hard to install, in fact the hardest part was getting them on the roof.



by:

The A/C seem to be a good value and the customer service from Britney was great. It was not clear to me that this unit didn't include all of the inside the camper components and thermostat as shown in the installation video.



by:

Much more compact and lighter than original unit and came when anticipated. This unit Beatrice made sure the crossover from Coleman to Advent was compatible and right adapter was used. Love dealing with e trailer as I can speak to real people that I can understand and know what they are talking about.



by:

Etrailer folks were extremely helpful! Sheila thank you! The casing had some minor dents in the sides therefore I gave 4 stars. I was able to pull them back out. Advent needs better packaging in their boxes to protect the unit!



by:

Disappointed, I called before ordering the female I talked to told me that my current metal flange and plastic distribution would work with the new Advent AC. Not really, I tried to use the existing flange it turned into a huge pain. I watched the video for the install and it seemed to me that the divider or plenum was included with the AC- Nope, this part also I think is included with the lower unit part # ACRG15 but.... the customer service rep wasn't sure a little disappointed. So now I have ordered part # ACRG15 paid more shipping! In final learn from my mistake customer service reps are not sure about want you need for a complete job, just order everything send back what you don't use.



by:

My customer needed a unit asap . Ashley found a similar unit that was in stock for me. It shipped quickly and I installed it this morning. Called customer and she was a very happy camper!

I purchased this 15,000 BTU unit with the direction from customer service. I was told that it was a replacement for my original Dometic AC on my 5th wheel and that it would mount and have identical wiring.
They were very helpful and correct. It was extremely easy to replace. The mounting bolts and wiring hook up were identical to my old unit. The hardest part was getting it on the roof of my camper which actually wasn’t that difficult. I put an old piece of carpet (upside down) on the roof to protect it. I used my tractor with a front loader to lift it as high as I could then just set it up on the roof.
Once I removed the diverter/trim from the inside ceiling there are 4 bolts holding the unit in place, one wiring plug and the freeze sensor attached to the evaporator. Once that was all done it just lifted off the roof. After cleaning the roof where the old unit set, I simply set the new unit on the same seal footprint. I went inside hook up the wire plug, located the freeze sensor and tightened the 4 bolts. Don’t tighten the bolts too tight, just enough to hold it tight and adequately compress the foam seal.
The overall size of the new unit is shorter and smaller than the Dometic.



by:

So far so good, I ordered two of these to replace my existing units.
One unit arrived damaged, but is working OK.
They seem a little noiser than the Coleman Machs.
Working good so far.

We are very happy with our Etrailer purchase! We replaced our 13.5K BTU Dometic Brisk 2 with a comparable low-profile Advent unit. As we were not totally sure of which unit to purchase, we made a quick call into the call center to confirm compatibility. The call center was very friendly & helpful. We received our A/C unit in a timely manner with only 1 minor dent from the shipping process. This did not appear to compromise the unit's function, so we proceeded with the install. As many customers have noted previously, the hardest part of the installation was getting the unit onto the roof. Installing the provided start capacitor went smoothly and the unit fit our Coachmen Apex's measurements well. The plugs & wiring were compatible making the final change-over very easy. As noted in the unit's description, installation hardware is not included in the purchase but was not necessary, as our existing hardware fit precisely. Our new unit is better-looking & much more aerodynamic and compact. Best of all it is MUCH quieter & seems to cool very efficiently in our humid, Southern heat!! Etrailer saved us hundreds of dollars with this purchase, and we can't be more satisfied. Thank you Etrailer! :)
I included a photo of my husband's method of getting the unit onto the roof for your enjoyment.

I received this awesome air conditioner unit in a week. Was a very easy install with great instructions. Blows very cold. Good unit



by:

Good air conditioner, but fan won't shut off after set temperature is met



by:

So EASY it aughta’ be CHEESY!!! Unboxed AC Unit, noticed two dents in the unit but none of the parts looked damaged or inconsistent; So I decided not to call regarding minor damage, instead I decided to install it by using two ramps I made out of scrap wood. TIP: the wooden ramps made it so simple to install the unit with minimal effort and two people. This made it a breeze to put in and I really recommend using this tip when installing your unit… The New Advent AC Unit made is so simple to plug into the dometic. This unit is made for easy installation and almost a universal fit. Great Experience at this establishment and happy with their product and selection of RV and Trailer parts. I will definitely recommend to all my fellow RV’ers! Happy Shopping! Always remember… Keep your library card updated!??????



by:

Affordable, good quality, easy install! This was a plug and play replacement for my old dometic. I saved so much money.



by:

direct replacement as advertised,easy to do, hard part is getting it on the roof, good instructions, but I youtubed it, also to make sure I was right....definaly do it again,e trailer was great staying in touch..



by:

The replacement air conditioner works perfectly. The base plate on my original Coleman was smaller, so we have to make some adjustments otherwise everything works great.



by:

The Advent A/C was delivered in good physical condition. I have not installed it yet. UPS had it sitting in their truck on its end. I do not think that is good for the compressor. Hopefully it starts and runs with no issues when I install it next week. Fast friendly customer service and delivery. Thank you Etrailer.



by:

I am very happy with my purchase,it showed up in only a few day and was exactly as advertised, additionally the ease of instalation was a pleasant surprise ans I am enjoying it very much.
Thank you etrailer keep up the good work!



by:

by:

Boxes arrived intact. Was kept informed about when it would ship, that it had shipped and had arrived and where they had dropped it off.
Was truly great experience! Will recommend to my other RVing friends!

  • What Hardware Is Needed To Install An Advent Air Replacement RV Air Conditioner
    The hardware it's referring to are the four bolts that clamp the rooftop condenser unit to the air distribution box inside the trailer. We usually just reuse the bolts from the previous unit during the installation of the new unit # ADV56FR. Before you purchase the unit you'll want to check for what style plug your current unit has so you can match it. You'll need to remove the cover of the air distribution box and look for the wire harness that hangs down from the condenser unit and...

  • Do Advent Low-Profile ACs Work With Dometic Set Up
    Thanks for the question Mike; the answer is yes, the 15,000 Btu Advent Air Low Profile RV Air Conditioner - Black # ADV56FR and White # ADV29FR do indeed work with your Dometic set up.

  • What Is The Smallest AC Unit For Adding AC System To A Cargo Trailer/Camper
    Hello Tyson. The smallest AC unit we offer is the Advent Air Low Profile RV Air Conditioner and this will be a great option for you. Since this is a smaller trailer you can definitely get away with a 13,500 BTU unit. These AC units require the roof to be between 2-1/2" and 5" thick, so please do keep that in mind during your build. For a complete AC system I recommend the following: - Advent Air Low Profile RV Air Conditioner - 13,500 Btu - White # ADV79FR - Air Distribution Box w/ Built-In...

  • Which 15,000 Btu Advent AC to Replace Coleman Mach & On Shore Power
    Since you are using shore power, you can replace your Coleman with an Advent 15,000 Btu unit and just need the wiring adapter. I really like the low profile units so I recommend going that route, and you can choose from either White or Black in color: - White: Advent Air Low Profile RV Air Conditioner # ADV29FR - Black: Advent Air Low Profile RV Air Conditioner # ADV56FR - Adapter Wiring Kit for Advent Air RV Air Conditioners # ACCOLKIT

  • Troubleshooting Coleman Mach AC Controller Shutting Off Advent Air Conditioner After Update
    This sounds like an issue with the Coleman thermostat/controller. I would recommend changing to the Advent which we have either a Manual Air Distribution Box # ACDB or Thermostat Air Distribution Box # ACRG15.

  • What are The Wattage/Power Demands For The Advent Air Low Profile RV AC Package # ASA78YR?
    The Advent Air Low Profile RV Air Conditioner # ADV56FR included with the Advent Air Low Profile RV AC Package # ASA78YR does not list specific starting and running watts. I was able to find information in a flyer for this AC that it has a rated wattage of 1,750W. I also pulled the Specs for the AC from the installation manual which shows power supply in amperage ratings. I have included this in the image below. The main reason they do not list starting and running wattages is the AC has...
