Product Faqs

Ask a Question

  • Q:Hi, I believe the kit with this unit will accommodate a roof thickness up to 85mm, but the roof thickness of my van is 110mm. Do you have an adapter for this?
    A:

    Yes, you can add an Exacta Thick Roof Kit which is listed on the product page under the Accessories list. This will enable fittings to a roof thickness up to 135mm. Many thanks

  • Q:What are the main differences between the older Ibis Air Con Model and the Ibis Mark 3 Model?
    A:

    Good question! The Ibis Mk3 version has more capacity, a huge increase in airflow and a massive reduction in operating noise compared to the Ibis Mk 2 model. More specifically:

    • an increase in cooling capacity at 3.1kw but more significantly a 50% increase in actual air flow allowing a faster, more uniform temperature control in your van
    • The new model’s noise has been dramatically reduced by 8 decibels on high fan.
    • The inside plenum has been upgraded as well, and features a 4 way air directional plenum which all four louvers can be closed independently allowing the user to control the air flow direction within the van
  • 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: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: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:Will the mk3 ibis fit the same area as the older ibis model ?
    A:

    Yes.

    The Ibis Mk3 will fit a 360 x 360 roof opening. You can also purchase a European roof adapater which will allow the Air Command Ibis Mk3 to fit into a 400 x 400mm roof opening

  • 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 

  • Q:What else do I need to purchase this to fit to my Coromal caravan? It will be replacing an aircommand sparrow. Thanks
    A:

    Hi there, both the Sparrow and Ibis 3 models have a 360mm x 360mm roof opening. (Although either unit can be fitted to 400 x 400 mm opening with the use of Euro Adaptor (0035010-Adapter) if required).

    So the Ibis 3 will fit into your roof size without issue. Fitting and Install instructions come with the unit and is a straightforward process, but it is advised a qualified installer (electrical contractor) undertakes the installation.

    For more info on the install, you can see the Manual & Install Guide HERE

    Thanks.

  • Q:Is this airconditioner able to be used while motor home is travelling......if so what is the price for any extra adaptors?
    A:

    Hi John,

    All of the air conditioners we sell require mains power to operate, and would not be suited to run when the vehicle is in operation.

  • Q:Does the IBIS roof mounted unit require a drain pipe for condesed water
    A:

    Hi Ross,

    Thank you for your question.

    The IBIS does not have a condesation drain hose.

    Aircommand recommend the following in high humidity conditions:

    • Close all doors, hatches, windows and blinds to limit the ingress of warm humid air.
    • Avoid running the inside fan on LOW or AUTO in humid conditions. Running the fan on HIGH fan speed will result in higher airflow and reduce the tendency to have condensation form.
  • 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
