This electric heat strip works with your AC unit (sold separately) to remove the chill from your RV or camper on cold or frosty mornings. Power cord and mounting hardware are included for easy, plug-and-play installation.

How It Works

Paired with your AC unit (sold separately), this 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 (sold separately). After you turn the dial to the 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 Electric Heat Strip

To install, mount the heat strip 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.

Was hoping this would produce at least a bit of heat. Installed and then tested it while temp outside was 30F. First it drew more than 15amps, had to start the generator in order to produce enough amps to keep it running. After 20 minutes no real heat, so kinda sad. However customer service here is great.
Wish it was better, but hay not always what you expect, but I tried.

Still working fine, not as much heat as I was hoping however it helps in not having to use propane as much.



by:

Very fast delivery time. Excellent packaging to help prevent damage during shipment. Haven't installed parts yet but everything looks good.

Always get knowledgeable people at etra iler

I received the heater unit & promptly installed it. Being a competent mechanical type, I found the installation to be straightforward but a bit painful. On the left side (w/elect terminals) was a slot in the protective metal screening for the purpose of using a screwdriver to install the 2 short screws. Difficulty came when trying to weave the screwdriver through terminal ends and wires while trying to guide the screw into the bracket slots.
On the opposite end, there were no electrical terminals, but neither was there a slot in the screening. This required a small diameter Phillips screwdriver to get through the metal screening. In my case it took way longer than one would anticipate to install 4 small screws. It was all good in the end & I am pleased with the product, how it is integrated into the a/c unit and how it functions.
It may be worth mentioning in the video & written instruction, that the HEAT position on the air distribution box also provides power to the fan for heat circulation. I did not see or hear that mentioned anywhere and caused me to question it. By trial, I discovered it's functionality.

Can this be installed as a standalone unit?

I do have an option for you but the heat strip cannot be used as a standalone heater for your trailer. It will need to be plugged into an Advent AC unit (ACM135, ACM135B, ACM150, or ACM150B). If you have one of those units the heat strip will allow you to set your air distribution box to only blow warm air. It sounds like you need a standalone trailer heater like part # CAM57341.

Advent ac unit works extremely well. I have two that are installed in vintage camping trailers as replacements for the 1970s OEM units. They installed easily & function flawlessly. I would not hesitate to buy yet another if the occassion arises.



by:

Very easy to install, just plug and play. I wish it were a bit quieter but all on all an improvement over the ac unit it replaced.



by:

fit perfect



by:

Works great in an enclosed area like an RV riser area. Pretty easy to install with only a couple of tools.



by:

Great service



by:

Good product for keeping the chill off in the mornings.



by:

Doesn't work very well. Very disappoint ed



by:

A very good air conditioner with a very poor design and quality With a few modifications of my own it works very good now



by:

I can't rate this until I receive my air box to check it out.

I have looked into your order and it looks like the airbox should have arrived to you by now. I would love to hear your updated feedback on that as well as this heat strip.



by:

New heater kit for new AC and was another exact replacement and easy install.



by:

Haven’t had an opportunity to test in unit trying to troubleshoot cooling



by:

Great product. Install is easy. Took top cover off removed chamber cover. Installed heat strip with the 4 provided screws put covers back on. Went inside plugged in the provided plug turned it on works great. Whole thing Took 15 minutes.

Simple install!!!

We had not bought all we needed the first time and the direction and support to fulfill what we needed was wonderful. your personal were a great help and friendly professional. they new what they were doing. Thank You!



by:

Product delivered in a timely manner and as advertised



by:

I installed two of these strips. Installation is incredibly simple. You can get this done in 30 minutes or less with just a screwdriver. The one I installed above the main cabin keeps the RV comfortable. My bedroom area is signicantly smaller and the unit that services it keeps it quite warm. I usually have to cycle the fan and heat option to keep the temperature where I like. The Advent heat strip is a good option. For reference, I am living full time in my RV.



by:

Fairly easy to install and seems to work. Too hot now to tell.



by:

Would not work on this ac unit



by:

I installed the heat strip in my Advent air conditioner and it worked great, instructions were very good and it worked well, nice and warm. We had just installed the ac unit in a pop up camper and it was great, does not drip water on roof. Very happy. Steve

Delivered as said

I purchased this heat strip for the Advent AC135 rv rooftop air conditioner. The ACHD is the heat strip that is recommended for my unit but has been discontinued. The electrical specs for the ACHD and the ACMHD are the same, as is the width and height. I was able to match the curbside holes on the evaporator with the heat strip flange precisely. I mounted the heat strip and used the roadside heat-strip flange as a guide to drill two holes for a solid mount. Pretty simple after I clipped away a small portion of the cage that surrounds the heat strip. Plugged it in and, voila, heat. Works great. Sorry, no pics. And I don’t want to remove the shroud again if I don’t have to, as putting that back on was the hardest part of the job.

  • Replacement AC Unit For A 2017 Crossroads Z-1 278RR
    When it comes to replacing your AC Unit on your 2017 CrossRoads Z-1 Travel Trailer I recommend The Advent Air RV Air Conditioner - 15,000 Btu - Black # ACM150B. This AC unit lets you replace your existing AC or add a new AC to your RV or camper. It works with your existing Advent Air, Dometic, Coleman Mach, or Carrier air distribution box and thermostat.

  • Will Advent ACM150 RV Air Conditioner Replace Coleman Mach Ducted System
    According to the manufacturer of the # ACM150 Advent Air RV air conditioner would be compatible with your existing ducting and thermostat, but you'd need the # ACCOLKIT adapter kit. Keep in mind, though that the existing Coleman thermostat won't be compatible with the optional # ACMHD heat strip, if that's something you were deciding you were needing.

  • Can I Use Advent Air Replacement RV Air Conditioner To Replace Ducted Dometic 13,500 in Forest River
    The Advent Air Replacement RV Air Conditioner for Dometic Setup w/ Start Capacitor part # ACDOM135 is a direct replacement for the Dometic 13,500 Btu ducted system in your 2016 Forest River Heritage Glen Wildwood fifth wheel.

  • Recommended Replacement AC With a Heat Pump to Replace a Dometic AC
    Hey Jamil, you could use something like the Advent Air Low Profile RV Air Conditioner # ADV79FR with the Electric Heat Strip for Advent Air RV Air Conditioners # ACMHD, which will work actually with your current Dometic thermostat/wiring. but does not have a wireless thermostat since it uses your existing equipment.

  • Air Conditioner and Generator Recommendation For Enclosed Trailer
    I recommend Advent Air RV Air Conditioner part # ACM135C for the 8.5x24 ft enclosed trailer. The temperature range is 65 degrees F to 90 degrees F so it will keep your enclosed trailer nice and cool on hot days. You can also add a heat strip with part # ACMHD for colder days. The air conditioner does require a 14-1/4" long x 14-1/4" wide opening on the roof but there is a thick gasket built into the unit to prevent leaking so there is not a need for any type of sealant. The best part about...

  • Recommendations For Adding AC To A 14 X 8 Enclosed Trailer
    We can definitely help set you up. For a 14' x 8' enclosed trailer, I believe a 13,500 BTU unit would be sufficient. I recommend the Advent Air # ACM135. Advent makes a solid AC unit, which will fit perfectly in the 14" hatch on the roof. Keep in mind the roof does need to be between 2-1/2" and 5" thick in order to install this unit. As far as your controls, you have two options. You can either use a manual distribution box # ACDB, which will put your controls on the ceiling right above...

  • Replacement Air Conditioner For Dometic 57908.304
    Based on your serial number beginning with 3, this A/C unit would have been made in 2003 or 2013. I spoke with Dometic (who now owns the Dou-Therm brand) about your unit and found that the fan blade is no longer available. For the motor they only have the 3310725.001 service kit consisting of some bushings and mounting groments. The inside cover is not avaiable either. It seems that your best alternative is a new unit such as the Advent # ACM135C roof top air conditioner with 13,500 BTU...

    We do have a heat strip available for the Advent Air RV Air Conditioner part # ADV44FR, the Electric Heat Strip for Advent Air RV Air Conditioners part # ACMHD but Advent does not use heat pumps. The only model we offer with a heat pump is the Atwood Air Command Rooftop RV Air Conditioner part # AT15028-22 for white or part # AT15033-22 for black. Please note, these are for ducted applications.

  • Air Conditioner Replacement For Dometic 59136.331 That Ran Out Of Freon
    The Dometic air conditioner units are sealed therefore they cannot be recharged with refrigerant. The only option is to replace the unit. Since your unit is a 15,000 BTU unit I recommend to replace the AC with a unit at least 15,000 BTU. I recommend Advent Air Replacement RV Air Conditioner for Dometic Setup w/ Start Capacitor part # ACDOM150 which is a 15,000 BTU system that will easily plug into your existing Dometic setup without replacing wiring.

  • Is The Advent ACCAR135 a Heat Pump Or Will it Require a Heat Strip?
    The Advent Air Replacement RV Air Conditioner # ACCAR135 along with all the other air conditioners we currently have do not have a heat pump. We do offer the Heat Strip # ACMHD which fits the Advent Air Conditioner. Since the Carrier AC's are virtually obsolete on campers you might want to consider switching to the Furrion Chill HE RV Air Conditioner System # FR67FJ which will give you 2 AC and a central thermostat. We also have the Heat Strip # FR27PR you can add to one or both units...

  • Replacement RV AC Unit for Dometic with Heat Strip
