The Go Power Solar All-Electric Kit - 680 Watts # 34275010 will not be enough to power the air conditioner unit 24/7. The Advent Air RV Air Conditioner w/ Ceiling Vent and Start Capacitor - White # ACM135C will have a running wattage of 1,450 and the Atwood # AT15025-21 will run at 1,265 watts so the power draw is substantial and when using the Go Power Pure Sine Wave Inverter - 1500 Watt - 12V # 34279950 you will have the power to run it, but the battery bank will deplete as the solar cannot create enough charge to recharge the batteries when the AC is running. The amount of time until the AC unit would stop running will depend on the specific number of batteries used and their amp hour rating.

This is a great kit that will work well for you but it won't run 24/7. You'd need to add more panels and more batteries. I reached out to my tech contact at Go Power and Basically to run that 13,500 btu Advent AC unit 24/7 you'd need a power bank of 5,906 amp hours so that is a lot of deep cycle batteries.

You may want to consider the etrailer 2,000-Watt Portable Inverter Generator - 1,600 Running Watts # 333-0001 as an alternative option. You would need a start capacitor like # ACMSCKIT because the start up cost of the AC unit would be too much power draw where with a capacitor like this it wouldn't be an issue.

It isn't solar, but it is a solution to give you AC.
