In order to replace your Carrier Air V RV Air Conditioner I highly recommend using the Advent Air Replacement RV Air Conditioner for Carrier Setup part # ACCAR150 for 13,500 Btu's or part # ACCAR135 for 15,000 Btu's. This unit will be the only direct replacement we offer that will use the ceiling vent and thermostat that you have now for your Carrier unit.

This means the process to install the new unit will be extremely easy as it is all pretty much just plug and play. The Advent unit also comes with a start capacitor which reduces the amount of watts required to start the unit. This unit does not come with a heat pump so no worries here.

I plan on replacing a Carrier V with the ACCAR150. It is said that this is plug-n-play. My question is to confirm two things. The Carrier V has a wireless thermostat controller that controls all functions; speed, AC, and temperature. Will this continue to work as it does now since I understand the lower portion of the old unit stays installed and only the top portion of new ACCAR150 gets installed? And what about my current Furnace. It operates off the same remote through the lower unit of the Carrier V. Will this still function the same? Is it beneficial to just disconnect the furnace and install the heat strip in the ACCAR150? Can I have both? Thanks,

Since the Advent Air AC Unit # ACCAR150 is plug and play it will function just like your Carrier V when plugged into the wiring system. The only time you'll want to add the heat strip is if you get rid of your furnace.

I have an RV Cameo 5th wheel. 2009. My air Conditioner quit and I need to have it replace. It is an air Conditioner and heat pump all in one. Any suggestions?

Some of our replacement AC units have plug and play wiring so I'd go with one of those. If you can let me know what your current AC unit is I can see if we have a replacement.

@JonG I have a 2009 Cameo as well with the same problem. Looking to replace the heat pump. The current is a carrier V model #68rv14113a. Is there a heat pump replacement available? And/or an A/C only replacement?

@GregG The Advent Air # ACCAR150 will work great to replace your existing Carrier AC unit. It's a direct replacement so you'll be able to use your remote.

I have a 2005 Bayridge with a carrier AV a/c unit. Makes a terrible noise while running. I think it’s the fan. Being that the a/c is15 years, should I replace the entire unit?

If your Carrier AC unit is looking and running rough then I'd just go ahead and replace the AC.

I have a 2006 Carrier AirV HC unit that is bad. This has the heat pump. Do you guys have a replacement? And how much? Thanks

None of the Carrier-replacement models we have available, such as the Advent Air # ACCAR150 , feature a built-in heat pump. With this model though you could still add the Heat Strip # ACMHD .

Is the motor the same as the Carrier?

The new Advent Air AC unit will use a different motor. It's not an exact replacement for your Carrier model but it will work perfectly in its place.

I have a Dometic non ducted on my Wolf Pup 16fq (not sure of the model) the control panel has 3 coolling settings and it seems to work fine however the fan never stops, it continuously runs no matter what the temp. I've read that this is normal for non ducted airconditioners. My question is can I replace this air unit with one that will utilize a thermostat so that the fan will cycle off when the temp gets cool enough? Thanks.

The Advent Air AC # ACM150 is a perfect replacement for this application. It's designed to work with existing Dometic components so you'll be able to use it with your current thermostat to control operation of the fan.

The Advent Air AC units mentioned above could be used in either the front or rear. Most likely the two ACs on your Presidential 5th Wheel are the same - but it definitely wouldn't hurt to check for sure. One might be a higher Btu model for better circulation in one area of the trailer over another.

@ChrisR I have a 2004 Damon Daybreak motorhome with the Carrier AV AC and wireless remote. The remote also controls the heat. If replace my AC with the Advent, will I still be able to control the heater? The Carrier AV Ac unit on the ceiling has a light that says heat.

If you have a different heat system than the Carrier (if it has dual functions) then you can use one of the Advent AC units on the linked page as a plug and play that works with your thermostat. I recommend getting the appropriate size that comes with a start capacitor. If you're needing a heat option added to the Advent then you can also get the Heat Strip # ACMHD .
