Product Description

Dometic Ibis 4 Reverse Cycle Roof Top Air Conditioner, 3 Year Warranty. The Dometic Ibis 4 makes improvements on many of the industry-leading features of the highly sought-after Ibis Aircommand 3 and packages them in a more lightweight roof top unit. The new-generation compressor with inverter technology used in the Dometic Ibis 4 ensures that vibration is minimised, creating a more pleasant environment. In addition to this, the quiet environment that the Ibis 3 achieved has been replicated. 

The inverter technology within the compressor also significantly reduces start up power requirements. This Ibis 4 model will start and run off a 2000w inverter generator

The internal ADB has been redesigned, optimising airflow inside the vehicle. For the first time in an Ibis air conditioner, a turbo-mode fan speed has been included, which allows for rapid cooling inside the RV.

In addition to the performance improvements from the Ibis 3, the Dometic Ibis 4 also features several refinements to the build of the rooftop unit. The shell of the rooftop unit has been redesigned with strong EPP materials to ensure a lightweight build. Weighing in at only 40 kg, the Dometic Ibis 4 is significantly lighter than its predecessor.

The length and width have also seen significant reductions in size, resulting in a much more compact rooftop unit. The Dometic Ibis 4 has the option to be fitted to both 400 x 400 mm and 360 x 360 mm roof openings, a first for the Ibis series.

Key Features: 

  • Excellent cooling capacity of 2.6kW
  • Four fan speeds, including a turbo speed for rapid cooling
  • Extremely quiet cooling, even at maximum speed
  • New generation variable speed compressor
  • The dual-cylinder horizontal compressor reduces the level of vibration
  • Optimised airflow means increased efficiency and reduced noise
  • Auto mode allows the user to set the temperature and the unit will determine the relevant mode and fan speed
  • Sleep mode reduces the fan and compressor speed for reduced noise
  • Automatic display brightness
  • Two Piece ADB means simplified assembly thanks to fewer parts
  • Remote control operation and touch control
  • Leightweight rooftop unit at only 40 kg due to use of EPP materials
  • Suitable for both 400 x 400 mm and 360 x 360 mm roof openings
  • Ultra thin design reduces towing drag and clearance requirements
 
Fitting and Install instructions come with the unit, but it is advised a qualified installer (electrical contractor) undertakes the installation.

Note: The Dometic AirCommand Ibis MK3 is no longer available, the Dometic Ibis MK4 is the replacement model.

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:Will this air-conditioner work off a 2000w generator?
    A:

    Hi there - yes, this new air-conditioner model uses an inverter compressor which significantly reduces startup power demands. Therefore, one of its most appealing features is that it will comfortably start and run on a 2000-watt inverter generator.

    Most other air-conditioner models will require more than 2000 watts to start up.

  • 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 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 Dometic Aircommand Ibis MK3 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.
    • The latest release from Dometic; The Dometic Aircommand MK4 model (designed for vehicles up to 7 metres in length) features a new-generation compressor with inverter technology which ensures that vibration is minimised, creating a more pleasant environment. In addition to this, the quiet environment that the Ibis 3 achieved has been replicated. Both of these features make it one of the quiestest air conditioners in the market.
  • Q:How Do I Maintain My Dometic Aircommand Ibis 4?
    A:

    Hi there,

    To maintain your air conditioner you should perform regular and interval maintenance. This includes:

    Regularly:

    • Check the condensation water drainage.
    • Clean the filter of the air discharge unit.

    Intervally (Once Per Year):

    • Check the profile seals - check the seal between the roof air conditioner and the roof of the vehicle for cracks and other damage.
    • Have the heat exchanger serviced - have the heat exchanger of the roof air conditioner serviced by specialist workshop.

    *Please Note! Any other maintenance work to that which is described here may only be carried out by qualified personnel who are familiar with the risks involved when handling refrigerant and air conditioning systems as well as the relevant regulations.

  • Q:Hi, Can you please outline the main differences between the new Ibis Mark 4 aircon model compared to the Ibis Mk 3 model?
    A:

    Hi Dale, great question. The key features of the new Ibis 4 model are:

    • A powerful dual-cylinder horizontal compressor which reduces vibration in your RV rooftop when the a/c unit starts and changes speeds, which reduces noise. The compressor also incorporates inverter technology which significantly reduces start up power requirements - this Ibis 4 model will easily start and run off a 2000w inverter generator.
    • The use of durable lightweight EPP material has helped to significantly reduce the weight to 40 kg, dropping 8 kilos when compared to the Ibis 3.
    • Suitable to fit 360 × 360 mm and 400 × 400 mm roof openings straight out of the box without the need for additional components or accessories.
    • Slightly lower rooftop profile: improving on an already sleek design on the Ibis 3 version
    • The new Ibis 4 version has what Dometic calls a ‘turbo fan ’speed feature which accelerates the cooling of the van… so while the actual cooling capacity between the older and newer Ibis models are the same, the turbo mode slightly quickens the cooling process.
    • Simplified assembly due to the reduced number of ADB parts

    If you would like more detail, we have written a more in-depth article about the refinements Dometic have made to improve the Ibis in this latest version 4 model: you can read the ARTICLE HERE

  • Q:What is the airflow of the Ibis 4?
    A:

    Hi there,

    The four airflows ob the Ibis 4 are as follows: 

    Fan Speed     Ibis 4:         
    Low 231m³/h
    Medium 282m³/h
    High 332m³/h
    Turbo 496m³/h

     

  • Q:How far from the roof unit does the remote control operate.
    A:

    Hi There,

    According to Dometic, you can use the remote up to around 5m at an angle of 30° from vertical.

    You will also require a line of sight from the remot to the receiver on the air distribution box of the air conditioner. 

  • Q:Hi, does the ibis 4 use more power on startup for cooling than the harrier? I am looking at running an ac off a 3000 watt inverter and was told that the harrier is the most efficient. It looks like the ibis 4 has similar technology though. Would you know
    A:

    Hi Richard,

    Both air conditioners have inverters which allow them to be used in conjunction with a 2000W inverter generator.

    The current draw for the the two models are:

    Harrier: Current Draw (Cooling/Heating)6.5 A / 5.2 A

    IBIS 4: Current Draw (Cooling/Heating)Cooling: 6.9A | Heating: 6.5A

  • Q:How can I best optimise the performance of my roof-top air conditioner?
    A:

    Hi there,

    Here are some tips to best optimise the performance of your roof top air conditioner:

    • Clean the filters of the air distribution box regularly.
    • If your caravan has been sitting in direct sunlight for a long period of time, use the 'ventilation' mode with the windows open for a while before switching to the 'cooling' mode.
    • Avoid opening doors and windows as much as possible when the air conditioner is running.
    • Regularly remove leaves and dirt from the ventilation grilles of the roof top air conditioner. Make sure you do not damage the grilles in the process.

     

    Thanks for your question.

  • Q:How long can I run the ibus4 with a 2000w inverter running off a 120amp lithium battery
    A:

    HI There,

    We do not have exact figures of how long this setup would operate, but it would not be more than a couple of hours.

  • Q:the condensate from my Ibis4 pools on the roof of my poptop caravan. Where can i attach a pipe/hose to direct this away??
    A:

    Hi There

    We would recommend getting in contact with Dometic tech support for assistance on 1800 21 21 21.

  • Q:I have a IBIS MK2 in my motorhome and was wondering if the IBIS MK4 will fit into neatly into the hole where it sits?
    A:

    Hi There,

    It is our understanding that the Ibis Mk2 was installed in to a 360 x 360mm opening which means the Ibis Mk4 will certainly fit in to the same opening.

  • Q:How often do I need to service my Dometic RV/Caravan appliances?
    A:

    Dometic recommend servicing their gas appliances on a yearly basis, even if the vehicle has not been used. Additionally, bear in mind that insects can built nests in the gas appliances which will cause the appliances to stop working. It can also cause potentially dangerous scenarios.

    For other appliances, such as refrigerators and air conditioners, to ensure the appliances to work efficiently and last longer it is recommended to clean the condenser.

  • Q:What approx range of kWh consumption for 24 hr period sunny Qld summer day max 36c oat 20 ft standing height rv plse
    A:

    Hi Michael,

    As we do not have an independent testing facility we are unable to answer this question.

    We would recommend contacting Dometic Austrlalia for assistance on 1800 21 21 21.

  • Q:Could this unit be fitted to a Jayco Finch
    A:

    Hi There,

    You would be best confirming this with Jayco as they should be able to advise how much weight the roof and struts can support.
