Product Faqs

Ask a Question

  • Q:What is the difference between ‘reverse cycle’ caravan air conditioners and ‘heating element’ caravan air conditioners?
    A:

    Hi, great question. These descriptions relate to how the heating/cooling works in air conditioners. ‘Heat Exchange’ units use heat exchange to cool and an electrical heat element to warm. It’s not the most efficient heating method, but it works no matter how cold it is outside.


    Reverse cycle units are the more common type and they use a compressor whether heating or cooling. This is more efficient method but for some models can be an issue when there’s ice in the outside air.

    There are more Reverse Cycle models available and it is the most popular type of RV air conditioner – customers that opt for Heating Element style air conditioners typically plan to spend long periods in cold temperatures.

  • Q:With air conditioner ratings, why are some specifications for the same model different between suppliers and information sources relating to things like cooling capacity?
    A:

    Hi, good question. With ratings such as cooling capacity, two different numbers can both be correct – they can just relate to different requirements and conditions.

    Often cooling capacity figures displayed for the product are from the electrical rating conditions. The other main method of testing ratings of air conditioners is to ISO5151 standard – this method is under standardised controlled conditions and allows more direct comparison between models.

  • Q:Which generator should I be using for this Air Con unit? Can I use a Yamaha 2000w or do I need a Yamaha 2400w?
    A:

    Hi - the technical departments of the air conditioning brands will typically recommend a 2400w or 2800w inverter generator for most models. In our experience, the Yamaha EF2400iS is the best generator model to run caravan air-conditioners. It has the capacity to handle the startup power requirements when the A/C compressor kicks in.

    Some people will use a 2000w generator for smaller air-conditioner models, but it is worth noting that any generator's capacity is reduced as ambient temperature gets higher (often when you most need an A/C) and when the extension leads get beyond 3-4 metres. This is often when you need more than 2000 watts. So again, we would recommend the Yamaha EF2400iS to run most caravan air-conditioners, or the Yamaha EF2800i if you need a bit more power.  

    The last thing worth noting is that Dometic have recently released (as at Jun 2016) a new model of Air Conditioner called the Dometic Harrier Inverter Rooftop Air Conditioner – it’s the first model to use an inverter compressor in a Caravan Air Con application, which significantly reduces start up requirement. The Harrier model will comfortably start and run from a 2000w generator. This new A/C model may be worth considering if it fits your van and your requirements.

     

  • Q:Looking at a roof top caravan air conditioner - What are the noise ratings (dBA)? And which is the quietest?
    A:

    Unfortunately caravan air conditioner manufacturers don’t provide dBA ratings with their unit specifications, which is a pity because it is a hot topic among caravan enthusiasts.  

    All of the models we stock are premium brands and we have had no feedback from customers that the noise of their caravan air conditioner model purchased from us is too loud, or keeping them awake/disturbing them during the air con operation.

    Referring to specific models, a couple of the more popular caravan air conditioner options are:

    • The latest release from Dometic; The Harrier Inverter Air Conditioner has a variable speed inverter compressor, making its operation very quiet for its size (its designed for vehicles up 7.5 metres in length). 
    • The Air Command Ibis Mk 3 model (designed for vehicles up to 6.5 metres in length) has improved its high speed fan operation from previous models, also making it a very quiet roof top caravan air conditioner.
  • Q:I have a B3200 with ducting as well as straight down. What would be the best unit to replace it with?
    A:

    Hi Kevin, we have the Dometic BR342 Reverse Cycle Roof Top Air Conditioner in stock, so if you wanted to replace like for like, then that can be done. In terms of other options to fit the same roof opening (360 x 360mm) and to suit a vehicle length up to around 7 metres, then I would suggest you consider the following:

    Dometic Harrier Inverter Rooftop Air Conditioner - this was released in 2016 and is the first caravan air conditioner to incorporate inverter technology which makes it very energy efficient and quiet. 

    Air Command Cormorant Reverse Cycle Roof Top Air Conditioner - a tough model designed for Australian conditions and provides strong cooling/heating and power for your buck. 

    Overall, if you are looking at replacing your existing model with a newer, more up-to-date and energy efficient model, then I would recommend the Dometic Harrier Inverter unit. Thanks. 

  • Q:Will the Cromtech 2400w Inverter Generator handle the start up surge on this aircon unit?
    A:

    Hi - short answer is yes. The technical departments of RV air conditioning manufacturers (e.g. Dometic, Air Command, Truma etc.) will typically recommend a 2400w or 2800w inverter generator for most RV aircon models.

    In our experience, the Yamaha EF2400iS or Cromtech 2400w Inverter Generator are the best generator models to run caravan air-conditioners. These models have the capacity to handle the startup power requirements when the Aircon compressor kicks in.

    Of course there are other inverter generator models (slightly bigger or smaller) that customers do use to run their Caravan/Motorhome Air Conditioner - some 2000 - 2200w  or  2800 - 3000w generator models. It can depend on the particular setup of the van... However, as mentioned, the most popular models are the Yamaha 2400w or Cromtech 2400w and this is what we would recommend for an RV Aircon also. 

  • Q:Hi there, can you recommend anyone who would install this in a horse float for me? - Ipswich, QLD area. Many thanks, Jenean
    A:

    Hi Jenean, any local electrician or electrical contractor can undertake the install.

    Fitting and installing a rooftop Air Conditioner in a Recreational Vehicle is a very simple task for a qualified electrical contractor. 

    If you are still needing help finding someone, you can always contact the manufacturer (Dometic) directly on:  1800 21 21 21  and ask for an associated RV Air-conditioning specialist in your region. Many thanks
