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.

Just as stated. Replacement for my dometic. The installation was just as shown on video. Thanks to a son that has an auto crane. Great help for a 69 year old who thought about pulling it up an extension ladder.

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!??????

Item arrived damaged by UPS. I contacted etrailer & they are sending a replacement. Very good customer service. As you can looks like the unit was thrown around during shipping.



by:

Changed out dometic 13,500 BtU conditioner with 15,000 BTU with Advent Air. The fit was exactly the same dimensions with the same plug for thermostat and other controls. All I had to reconnect was the 115v electric. When started it took about 30 seconds for fan ramp up to full speed and then compressor kicked in. Two people took two hours. One person had previous experience. Should work well cooling a 30ft fifth wheel camper.



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.



by:

AC works, however, the bottom half of the unit was bent, someone damaged (bent it) the bottom portion and must have put a new top cover on it and boxed the unit up. The box was in perfect shape.



by:

Delivery was quick - two days. The AC arrived undamaged. E trailer has plenty of great installation videos which made the process smooth and uneventful. Everything performs as promised. For some reason Advent air conditioners don't come with a hard start capacitor included and they were on back order virtually everywhere online. So the 2 week plus wait for that was a bit annoying, but by no means a game changer. Basically Advent us a great unit at a great price that was easy to install diy.

Bought this to replace an older (2007) Coleman 8000 on our pop-up. Had a bit of a time installing this. Please, READ THE INSTRUCTIONS and LOOK AT THE PICTURES. I had the upper duct that mounts to the roof unit installed 180 degrees off.

The converter kit that you buy with this if you're replacing a Coleman, didn't fit my Coleman panel. It's made for newer units. After talking to etrailer and the manufacturer I found I had to purchase a new control panel for inside. Another $85.

Overall it wasn't a bad job once I figured out the upper duct and the control panel issues. Unit cools well. About the same noise level as the old Coleman. It is not as thick top to bottom as the Coleman was. Think it's a little lighter after picking up both! Real test of how it works will be the trip we're taking next month.



by:

have installed a few ac's over the years the smaller profile and weight as well as a simple plug and play made this advent a success in application . benefits over commercial dometic it replaced were quieter and less vibration as well as a general feeling of cooler throughout my 36 newmar .las vegas heat will continue to challenge the unit , we'll see if it survives the summer. so far pleased !



by:

Replacing an aged Carrier Air 5. This unit was plug 'n play with the old controls ... as I didn't want to give up the old remote or worry about the furnace interface. Will was great on the phone and got me all I needed, plus follow-up on shipments. The new unit is a bit louder, but the air is cold.



by:

The unit arrived, and I installed it the very next day. Overall, I spent about 2 hours preparing and completing the project, and the air conditioner works great.



by:

Unit came damaged, I opened it up on a Thursday and immediately called and Rochelle had a replacement to me on Saturday and installed on Sunday. Worked perfectly, the online video's are helpful. Some more detailed instructions with pictures would be a suggestion. I feel like I torqued the bolts, but it seems like it is almost excessive torque. The instructions do say the seals will crush to about a half inch which is quite a bit of tightening. Overall very happy and happy with the service from Rochelle to get the replacement fast and the call tag for the old one was called in and picked up on a Monday so all is good.



by:

Puts out lots of cold air. No directions on how to matchup to a Coleman diversion box. Lots of DIY videos latter, some rigid insulation and duct tape and it works great. 100 degrees outside, and the AC is pushing 60-degree air inside. Easily keep inside temp at 72. Coleman Mach 1 could barely keep it at 80. Customer service has always been really friendly.

  • Will Advent Air AC be Direct Replacement For Dometic Brisk AC
    Hey there Ross; thanks for that info and your 15,000 Btu Dometic Brisk Air II AC can absolutely be replaced by an Advent unit.

  • Correct 15K Btu Advent Low Profile AC Unit for Air Distribution Box
    Hey Jorge, thanks for reaching out! The Advent Air Low Profile AC # ASA68YR you're looking at actually has the wiring configured for a Dometic setup. For this same unit to work with the Air Distribution Box w/ Wall-Mounted Thermostat # ACRG15 you need the part # adv56fr instead, which comes with the standard Advent wiring setup.

  • What is the Amp Draw Of The Advent Air Low Profile RV Air Conditioner for Dometic Setup # ASA68YR
    The Advent Air Low Profile RV Air Conditioner for Dometic Setup # ASA68YR has a compressor rated load of 12.4 amps while the fan motor is rated for a load of 2.6 amps or 15 amps total. Do understand the AC does have a start capacitor that will help boost amperage to start the motors and may cause a slightly higher draw than 15 amps which is why Advent recommends a 20 amp circuit to be used.

  • Replacement Advent AC Recommendation for a Dometic Brisk Air II Air Conditioner
    Thanks for reaching out! I recommend going with the Advent Air Low Profile RV Air Conditioner which comes in White # ASA86YR as well as Black # ASA68YR. These are rated for 15,000 Btu and come with the start capacitor so they won't draw as much power for the startup as a normal unit will. I really like the low profile design because it looks more sleek and gives your RV a lower profile without sacrificing the performance of the AC unit.

  • How Many Watts Does the 15,000 BTU Advent Air Low Profile RV Air Conditioner Draw?
    Yes, it can! The 15,000 BTU Advent Air Low Profile RV Air Conditioner for Dometic Setup item # ASA68YR uses right around 3,000 watts for start up and 1,500 - 1,700 watts to run. Advent recommends a 20 amp circuit be used because of the extra draw during start up, even with the capacitor. So you have enough power to run your other electronics and appliances, I recommend the Champion 4,500-Watt Dual Fuel Portable Inverter Generator - Gas or Propane - Electric Start item # CH44FR.

  • Replacement Rooftop AC Unit For a Dometic Duo-Therm Penguin Low Profile AC
