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:

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:

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:

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.

Very good customer service and received unit on time.

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:

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:

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:

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.



by:

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.



by:

This item did not arrive today. I ordered a package deal with the rv AC and the distribution ent with thermostat. Today I received the distribution vent with the thermostat. Why sell as a complete set with the item doesn’t ship together. On item came from Missouri and the other is coming from Utah. Installation was set for tomorrow but that is not going to happen. Funny thing is while ordering it stated it was in stock and would be arriving today. Just missing my AC unit. Not the best service from etrailer.



by:

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:

Super fast delivery! I ordered ours after discovering the old Dometic unit had died on July 1st, and the new Advent unit arrived on July 3rd :-). Installation was even easier than in the YouTube direction video. I had the old one out, and the new one installed and running in less than an hour. Couldn't be happier with my purchase, and hopefully this one will last as long as the as one (19 years).



by:

Easy to install. Plug and play.
Piece
of mind knowing our pets will stay cool on hot days.
Old unit leaked refrigerant, unable to locate source. Thin foreign copper is suspect. RV AC units do not have service ports. They prefer you to use and throw
away.
Ordering from etrailer is always easy.

  • Recommended Replacement Rooftop Condenser Unit For A Dometic RV Air Conditioner System
    Hi Robert, If you're just wanting to replace the condenser unit on the rooftop and retain use of your current air distribution box and thermostat then you'll just need to determine what style connector your current unit has. If you remove the cover to the air distribution box and look up you should see a wire harness that hangs down from the condenser and plugs into the controller. It will have either a 6-pin or 9-pin connector (pictured below). If you have a 6-pin connector then you'll...

  • Replacement AC Unit Recommendation for a Dometic Brisk for 24' Trailer
    Hey Ken, thanks for reaching out! For a 24' enclosed trailer you likely have a 13.5K Btu AC unit, but the price difference between the Advent Air Low Profile 13.5K Btu Kit # ASA99YR and the 15K Btu Kit # ASA86YR is pretty small so it wouldn't hurt to have the more powerful system and just keep it from running as hard. These are great replacement options that will plug right into your existing Dometic wiring so you just have to make sure your unit doesn't have the control box built into...

    Hello Lucas. Nice job taking those pictures of the sticker without removing the AC shroud. To answer your question, yes it can! The Advent AC Units (including the new low-profile units) are made to be directly compatible with Dometic AC systems. So, the # ASA86YR will be exactly what you need.

    Hey Kathleen, thanks for reaching out! If your Advent Air Low Profile RV Air Conditioner for Dometic Setup # ASA86YR isn't pushing out cold air then I recommend making sure cold air isn't blowing directly on the thermostat (so it thinks the RV is cooler than it is), and checking to see if the coils are freezing up.
