Flash Freeze Technology

Advent Air Flash Freeze Technology

The air distribution box also offers Advent Air's Flash Freeze technology. This technology consists of 3 slotted registers and 1 curved, louvered vent that provide maximum airflow whether your system is ductless or ducted. This enables the unit to cool the interior of your RV or camper more quickly than other air distribution boxes that might only have 2 registers or don't have a louvered vent. If you have a ducted system, you will have air coming out of the ducts, the registers, and the vent. Or for more evenly distributed airflow, you can divert more cool air through the ducts and use the sliding switches to close the registers.


Wall-Mounted Thermostat

Advent Air Thermostat Mounted on Wall

This air distribution box includes a wall-mounted thermostat that lets you control the operating mode, fan settings, and temperature settings, and also turn the system on and off. Simply hit the MODE button to switch between 4 modes: cooling, heat pump, furnace, and heat strip. The heat pump mode will not work if the outside temperature is below 38 degrees Fahrenheit. If the temperature does drop below 38 degrees, then the thermostat will automatically activate the furnace mode.


To operate the fan, press the FAN button. The thermostat offers auto, low, medium, and high fan speed settings that let you increase or decrease airflow as needed. In the auto setting, the fan will turn on and off with the compressor or furnace, and the speed of the fan will be determined by the temperature.


To set the temperature, press both arrow buttons. Then use the buttons individually to either lower or raise the temperature. The thermostat will display the temperature in either Fahrenheit or Celsius. To switch from Fahrenheit to Celsius, or vice versa, press both arrow buttons for 3 seconds.


Advent Air Thermostat Blue LED Display

The thermostat has a blue LED display and large, user-friendly buttons that are easy to see. 15 Seconds after the last button is pressed, the blue light will turn off, which helps save power. The thermostat also has indicator lights that act as a confirmation as to whether the fan, the cooling setting, or one of the heat settings is currently being adjusted.

Have installed box and thermostat. This was wired into an older dometic system that was a hardwired setup. As a work around due to no plug to plug the new advent ac to. Rather spendy but worked well. Unit is up and running and all works well. This allows all functions of the ac

The best part of this transaction was the phenomenal customer service Donna provided. Due to limited product availability, Donna was able to locate exactly what I was needing to support my mobile RV Services business. Due to Donna's positive efforts, I was able to provide timely service to my customer. Shipping was fast and the product meets all expectations. I greatly appreciate the continued superb customer support that etrailer provides. Thnx a million!

Kit contained everything to install ADVENT Model No ACM150 with no problems.



by:

Product works well but the instructions were abysmal. I bought this part right before Covid-19 stopped us all in our tracks so it sat around for a very long time before I got a chance to install it. I purchased it to upgrade by Advent AC which only had knobs to control it and no thermostat. I really don't understand how anyone would want an AC without a thermostat but that's how the AC came. First I had to run a thermostat wire -- looking at the part online I determined that I needed 4 wires for the thermostat so I bought that in advance on [resell store] for a few dollars. I drilled a hole where I wanted to mount the thermostat and fished the wire all the way to the existing AC. I removed the existing grill and "dumb" control module and then reassembled the new parts pretty much the same as they came off. I turned on the breaker and pressed the on button on the thermostat but nothing. Thinking that I did something wrong I dug out my multimeter to check for voltage at the thermostat but nothing. Back to the directions and after looking over the circuit detail I figured out that this smart control needed 12V DC to run. So I fished a 12v DC lead and connected it to the control -- now everything worked -- well almost. In putting on the cover I discovered that it would not fit because unlike the "dumb" unit which had the control board hanging down, this one needed it up. So I cut off all of the wires, turn it over and wired everthing back up. Turned the breaker on at voila, everything works and the cover fit too! One more note, the ACRG15 is for non-ducted use but the cover sent which clearly said ACRG15 on the box had the vents covered with a piece of metal and some sticky foil tape -- taking it off wasn't an issue but the manual included was also for an ACRG12 (don't know if they even make one for this one).


Comments
Thank you for your detailed review. The ACRG12 is on the manual because it installs the same as the ACRG15.

1. The AC150 will not replace a Dometic 13500 without installing the ACRG 15 lower unit with ACTH12 Thermostat. The Dometic is a two speed fan where the AC15000 is a three speed fan. The Dometic will not switch on High Fan on the AC150 and in very hot temps the AC will not cool as intended.
2. The Brown and White Furnace wire connects to the -Blue Thermostat wire and cap +Blue Thermostat wire.
Verify: wires connecting to replaced Dometic control box Furnace Blue and White wires may not be blue, but, do in fact represent the Blue thermostat wires coming from the furnace. With ambient temperature below 86, preferably lower, connect one wire to Brown and white Furnace wire and if the furnace does not turn on, switch wires and recheck. Cap dead wire. This short procedure will keep the installer from breaking the seal on the Furnace outside cover to visibly verify the thermostat wires if they are changed from Blue to color of the day at the coach manufacturer.
3. For Advent: Incorporate the simplified diagram of “Relay Kit ACRG 12” into the ACRG15 control box cover and pamphlet which comes wit the unit ( least confusion, most informative.) Add a -BL (blue) Thermostat wire connecting to Brown White stripe Furnace wire.
4.The simplified Relay Kit ACGR 12 diagram is not included in any of the parts kit.



by:

Very simple install. I think the thermostat could be a little higher quality but it does the job.



by:

perfect fit for original replacement! Digital thermostat is a nice upgrade from the original analog style.



by:

the air dist box was received quickly and in good condition install was simple, if running the furnace on this thermostat you need only hook up the neg wire from the furnace usually will be the white one to the wire marked furnace everything works great



by:

It was easy to install and woks perfectly. I appreciate the the help and advice I received from etrailer in purchasing and installing this air conditioner.



by:

It hooked right up and was fabulous I loved it and it worked excellent!



by:

As Described



by:

Works exactly as described on your web site. Easy to install snd is of good quality.



by:

The ac cools just fine. It was a little bit of a hassle installing the wall thermostat because it has to be hooked up to 12v power while the ac is on 120v. Luckily my electrician friend was able to help us out. Our trailer is an '87 so perhaps newer trailers have the 12v & 120v already wired together. The only downside after installation is how LOUD it is. I mean, REALLY LOUD! I can't hear someone who is 8 feet away from me when it's on. There are 3 fan settings but the difference is not that much. We were able to sleep well because of the drowning white noise but I really wish it was quieter. At least we won't be sweaty!



by:

Added as a second unit to a 33' Crossroads. Works great. Easy straight forward install. Using the ACRG 15 air distribution box with thermostat. All the wires are labeled from the factory so installation was a snap. Added the ACMHD heat strip also but it's 85 degrees and a little hard to test that out just yet. The crew at etrailer were great at helping me get everything picked out that I needed. Shipping was fast. If there was such a thing as a 10 star rating, they deserve it



by:

Looks good, haven’t had a chance to install it yet..



by:

Great service. Fast delivery.



by:

Seems like a great product so far. Installation was simple and it cools a 8.5x28’ trailer easy.

One note: you must have 120v and 12v supply for this AC to work. I did not know that and had to go through some extra trouble of running 12 V power source.



by:

Great service



by:

We ordered a remote control and this was not we had a hard time putting in because we did not have a wire for a thermostat not fun or happy but we made it work



by:

I just replaced the cover I had for the correct one and it makes all the difference. Great price, great service.
Thanks etrailer

Ask the Experts about this Advent Air Accessories and Parts



  • Do you Need to Run Wires to use the Wall-Mounted Thermostat for Advent Air RV Air Conditioners
    Good Question. It will depend on your current setup when using the Wall-Mounted Thermostat for Advent Air RV Air Conditioners - White part # ACRG15. Most newer RVs have the wiring already ran up to the ac and then to a panel on the wall to mount the thermostat or to the thermostat that is already there that you are replacing. If that's what you have those wires are great to use. If that's not the case and you don't have a current thermostat you're replacing or your setup isn't pre-wired...

  • What is Flash Freeze Technology on Advent Ceiling Vent Assembly?
    That is an excellent question; the FlashFreeze technology that is a part of the Ceiling Vent Assembly with Wall Mounted Thermostat for Advent Air RV Air Conditioners - Ducted # ACRG15 simply means the airflow from the Advent AC will be blown directly into your RV's living area. The benefit of this is that it will cool down your RV quicker because of the direct air flow.

    You are correct. You would remove the metal cover on the Air Distribution Box w/ Wall-Mounted Thermostat for Advent Air RV Air Conditioners # ACRG15 when installing in a non-ducted application to allow the air to pass through the vents.
