Is this right For you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

Yes, if you:

  • Are replacing an Advent or Dometic AC unit
  • Have a dark RV exterior and prefer a black AC on the roof to match
  • Have a ducted RV or one that is partitioned off - higher CFMs will push air throughout the rig

No, if you:

  • Are adding an AC where one didn't exist before
  • Go boondocking frequently and need a capacitor to make it easier on your generator
  • Camp in humid or super hot areas that require more cooling power (Btus) to stay comfortable, especially with pets or kids
This AC unit lets you replace an existing AC or add a new AC to your RV or camper. It works with your existing Advent Air, Dometic, Coleman Mach, or Carrier air distribution box and thermostat - adapter wiring kit (sold separately) may be required. Lowest Prices for the best rv air conditioners from Advent Air. Advent Air RV Air Conditioner - 13,500 Btu - Black part number ACM135B can be ordered online at or call 1-800-940-8924 for expert service.

This Advent Air AC unit lets you replace an old or broken air conditioner on your RV or camper. It works with your existing Advent Air or Dometic air distribution box, and it is compatible with Coleman Mach or Carrier setups if used with an adapter wiring kit (ACCOLKIT, ACCARKIT - sold separately). The AC has a powerful fan and motor that provides a steady stream of air to efficiently cool the inside of your RV on a hot or muggy day. And everything you need in order to replace or add an AC unit is included, which makes installation simple and easy.

Simple Installation

Because your RV is likely already prepped and pre-wired for an AC unit, installation is simple and easy. Most AC units, including this one, are designed to fit an opening that measures 14-1/4" x 14-1/4". Depending on your roof setup, you may need to do minimal alterations. If the opening is larger than 14-3/8" x 14-3/8", you will need to install spacers between the sides of the unit and the opening's edges. If the opening is smaller than 14-1/8" x 14-1/8", you will need to enlarge the hole to fit the unit snugly inside the opening.

Advent Air AC Collapsible Gasket and Foam Pads

On the bottom of the AC, there's a thick, collapsible gasket with 6 noise-reducing foam pads. This provides support between the RV roof and AC and seals the opening to prevent water and outside air from leaking in. Because of this, the use of fresh sealant isn't needed. Once installed, the hard plastic cover on the AC can easily be removed for maintenance and cleaning.

And in order to fully complete installation, this AC needs to be paired with your existing Advent Air, Dometic, Coleman Mach, or Carrier air distribution box and thermostat. Please note that an adapter wiring kit (sold separately) is needed if you are replacing a Coleman Mach or Carrier air conditioner.

Additional Accessories

Additional accessories can be purchased separately to improve the performance of your Advent Air AC unit. The start capacitor (ACMSCKIT) improves the performance of your AC by using stored energy to jumpstart it. And the electric heat strip (ACMHD) removes the chill on cold or frosty mornings in your RV, ensuring you stay comfortable. Please note that the heat strip will only work on Advent Air AC units.

This AC unit lets you replace an existing AC or add a new AC to your RV or camper. It works with your existing Advent Air, Dometic, Coleman Mach, or Carrier air distribution box and thermostat - adapter wiring kit (sold separately) may be required.


Super fast shipping, great price, very helpful staff. Installation was super easy. Replaced one of my original 1998 Duo Therm units with this unit. Getting the old unit unstuck was a bit of a challenge but from there it was just a matter of getting it lined up with the hole, attaching the cold control, putting the 4 bolts in, plugging it into the original connector, putting the plastic cover plate back on and turning it on! From experience I know that even the simplest of projects on an rv can snowball into a major ordeal. Without a doubt this was one of the easiest and most straightforward projects I’ve tackled. Working in 95° Oklahoma heat start to finish was under two hours and that included replacing the old foil sealing tape around the air duct. Having two strong people on top while I was inside to get it centered over the hole, getting the old unit down and the new unit up was a huge asset! I’ll be replacing the other unit sometime over the winter for sure. Just can’t think of anything negative about the whole experience.


It is a very good unit. I works really well. Was very simple to install and get it running. Will recommend that anyone buying this also buy the Starter kit ACMSCKIT to. it will make it so much easier on the unit and will help with the surge every time the kicks on.


Very easy to install. A real DIY installation. Just removed the old one, put in the new one. Only 1 wire to plug up & attach the thermostat wire. Blows very cold & is quieter than my original that came with the camper.


Five stars so far. I just received this and installed it over the weekend at our permanent campsite. I was replacing the stock Dometic A/C unit which would no longer cool. Installation (aside from getting up on to the roof) was dead simple. This unit is quieter than the original and cooled the inside of our trailer in no time at all. The last unit ran for six years. Time will tell how this one lasts.


It was a perfect replacement fit. Watched a couple of [online] videos and changed in a couple of hours. Cools great, quiet. etrailer worked hard to find the capacitor for the unit and got everything quicker than I expected.


This product was NOT run tested before shipping. The squirrel cage fan in the unit was sticking on the foam housing and almost burned out the motor before I detected the problem and re-aligned the motor mount to stop this from happening.
This is NOT the way to go.
To say that I am P.Oed is understatement.
Also as I had the foam housing off I noticed that the aluminum fins on the radiator had some minor damage.
Altogether some poor and sloppy workmanship

Would NOT recommend your company again.

I can certainly understand your disappointment in the AC unit. This is not how expect the AC unit to arrive. I will have our customer service team reach out to you.

Excellent replacement as per information on website
Extremely easy 1-2-3 installation

Great...perfect replacement
Marlin - 05/03/2022


E trailer always the deal and nice people to deal thanks this is not the last time to buy parts


Excellent service by etrailer and all personnel involved. Received order two days after placing and in great shape. Installed and working fine. Thank you for your great service again.


This Air Conditioner will work perfect for my enclosed race trailer. The item got shipped and delivered as promised.


Installation was pretty simple and straightforward. The unit cools exceptionally well (freezes out the bedroom in our fifth wheel!). ONLY concern was the the packaging was pretty minimal, and the steel tray base of the unit was pretty banged up upon arrival. I was afraid the unit might have suffered internal damage, but after straightening some dents and bends in the base tray, it installed tight to the roof and fired right up. I WOULD strongly recommend to etrailer that they consider over-boxing the original packaging, to prevent this kind of damage in shipping -- these units are just about at the outside limit of what a UPS/FedEx delivery driver can handle alone, and based on the condition of the box (and the bend in the middle of the base-tray), I strongly suspect the unit must have hit the ground fairly hard coming off the delivery truck.
OVERALL, very satisfied with the product.


Great products and super fast services and delivery! Very happy with e trailer!


ETrailers Staff is one of the Best Ive Dealt with. Top of the Shelf in customer Service!


Once I had all the correct parts (bad on me). The AC has been working great. With the weather here in south west NM (hot) it has been a life saver thanks again for all of your help


Works great but very loud.
Can not hear
anything when it's on and your in the same room.


I like it very much. Pretty easy to install and what a difference it makes in the front bedroom.


We are very happy with the Roof top air conditioner we purchased for our RV. Thank you Tommy for advising us to get the start capacitor also. It was a great recommendation. Installation was a breeze. Having the extra AC has been great keeping us cool on these really hot almost 100 degree summer days. Thank you e-trailer.


Great service!!! It was here in three days. The only thing I do not like is the product was made in China. I would like to see a listing in the description on where it was made.


It was easy to install and works great!


Very versatile 100%


Fast delivery and easy to install. Durable had a few dents from delivery and works find.


Being Texas HVAC State Licensed Installer! I buy my RV A/C only from ETrailer due to their Fresh from Factory and my Customers like them! ETrailer has better prices then RV Dealership! If you are hands on Man or Women you can install these RV A/C’s yourself! And save Ton of money! ETRAILER has Videos on how to install them!

  • Non-Ducted Air Conditioner for Food Trailer
    The Advent Air Rooftop RV Air Conditioner # ACM135B is actually just the outside part of the AC unit and wouldn't be considered either ducted or non-ducted but you're on the right track! What you need along with Air Conditioner # ACM135B - which is Black in color but also available in White at part # ACM135 - is Ceiling Vent Assembly # ACDB to give you a non-ducted AC unit. The vent assembly will install in a 14-1/4" long x 14-1/4" wide opening in your roof and will be inside your food...

    It is highly likely that you can use the Advent AC where the vent is now on your car trailer, though we do not have any specific blueprints or diagrams or any way to know the size of your trailer's vent opening. In order to use the Advent Air Rooftop RV Air Conditioner # ACM135 (White) or # ACM135B (Black) you would need the Ceiling Vent Assembly # ACDB and these will fit a roof opening of 14-1/4" long x 14-1/4" wide, which is the standard size opening for trailer vents so it is very likely...

    While we do have some great air conditioner options for you, we unfortunately do not sell replacement blowers for any air conditioner models we carry. With that being said, the best option would be to reach out to Coleman to see if they carry the exact replacement you need. However, if you conclude that you need the unit replaced, a great cost-effective option is the Advent Air RV Air Conditioner # ACM135 (white) or # ACM135B (black). This model comes with 13,500 BTUs and has a 14-1/4"...

  • How Does Advent Air Rooftop RV Air Conditioner # ACM135B Drain Condensation
    I spoke with my contact at Advent Air regarding the Rooftop RV Air Conditioner # ACM135B that you referenced and she did say that this unit features a port that will drain any condensation. It is designed to simply drip onto the roof and then drain off the side of the camper. If you wanted to make up some plastic tubing to attach to the port to more directly control the drainage you certainly could but it is not necessary.
