Default Quiet Air Conditioner from Advanced RV

Evidently Advanced RV is expanding in 2.5 times more space in April and expanding their services other than their Class B vans. They've in the past installed VB Air Suspension and E-P levelers on other RV models not of their own when they could. They are marketing a brush guard and now the roof-top air conditioner they tested from Australia they believe to be three times quieter and 20% more efficient than offerings from other Class B manufacturers. I don't know if they have an exclusive dealership for sales and installation but they've offered to install on other RVs. This is their video.

Thanks for posting! I hope it works out. I hate, loathe, despise our a/c unit...

I watched the video, the output is closer to 15k than my 13.5 and more efficient. Im thinking of replacing my units.

And they still haven't named the brand/model.

Just wander when this Truma AC will come to our shores, I have seen it in EU – it is very, night time quiet. It takes 12”x18”x34” storage space, I could easy find a place for it in my sub 20’ long wide van. Truma entered NA with Truma Combi so AC could be coming soon.

It almost seems like a big DC portable that vents out the bottom?

I would be interested in that one since I don't desire a rooftop air conditioner.

Yes. Except that it isn't DC.

If I ever get around to upgrading my A/C, I am committed to native DC power. Most of them use the wonderful Danfoss compressors, and you pick up another significant efficiency bump by avoiding inverter losses. Even if you don't believe in under-chassis mount (and I do), you could still go that route.

I have a 12 volt split system in my van. The compressor vibrates the whole van. My next RV I wish to try a quiet roof unit.
