Arrived ups excellent condition in two days, can't beat that. Hardest part of installing was removing the vent where I was installing the air conditioner. Seems to be cooling very well. Etrailer are always great to deal with.

Missing most of my parts. Wrong order was sent.

It was easy to swap out and install, we have a forklift so we didn’t have to lift it up a ladder
The unit came quickly and was in great shape, however the junction box was no attached to the unit, so I had to grab a couple screws and attach it see pictures , the unit is running nice and quiet and dropping the temperature , so far so good! It would be nice if it had an owners manual or some type of directions shipped with it

Thanks! to etrailer for reminding me to do this review after a year. VERY few businesses do this, and they wouldn't have had to do this. This speaks volumes about etrailer. I bought this Furrion A/C to replace a very problematic defective Dometic unit which died just BARELY out of warranty. After multiple attempts to get Dometic to do the right thing and replace their defective unit, they chose to instead to drag their investigation on for weeks and then never even afforded me the common courtesy of a definitive answer to my request. Sadly, this same thing happened to several of us here in this RV park, and we all replaced these units with Furrions. In short, this Furrion air conditioner works like a champ, and with the help of our other smaller size bedroom A/C, will quickly cool this sizable rig down to meat locker temps, and that's an accomplishment here in Southwest Florida where we invented heat and humidity! Thus far, this has proven to be a MUCH better A/C unit than the Dometic. Colder, and a considerably more powerful fan system, and the technical advise and service from etrailer has been spot-on. After a year, I can comfortably say that if you're considering a new A/C unit for your rig, this is the one to get and etrailer's the place to get it. Don't be fooled by some of these internet sites that might be a few bucks cheaper. There's a big difference between price and value and this is hands-down the best value in RV A/C units. When I need another one, I'll come right back here to etrailer and get another one. I'd be loyal to them because they earned it...and that's a rare commodity these days!!
Stay cool !!



by:

This unit arrived well packed, no problems with shipping damage.
Works much better than the old coleman 13500 unit we had.
Will actually get down to temperature and turn of, old unit never turned off.
adapter kit for coleman unit , holes did not line up with existing ceiling vent.
Had to screw spacers to four corners in roof opening to attach air conditioner.
The wiring harness worked fine, plug and play. Over all very happy



by:

roger,
i was surprised to receive furrion
chill. i was expecting colemen mach.
they are now at the repair shop, i am replacing the roof and repairing water damage.
the timeline is another week or so out.
since they have to pull the other conditioners out, i figured it would be a good time for an upgrade.
u dun gud...:-)
tks for the assist.



by:

The unit arrived sooner than expected. I love the exterior design. Install of the unit was easy. I ordered the adapter kit to work with my existing coleman power box.
If you purchase the LED air distribution panel, I recommend replacing the coleman power box and ordering the furrion thermostat that is needed to power the LED lights. If you purchase the air panel without the LED light, you can keep your coleman power box and existing thermostat.
The furrion unit cools the living room, bedroom and bathroom faster, the air "out" is colder than the coleman mach unit. I had to replace the brand new coleman mach unit with the furrion since the company we purchased the trailer new from refused to replace the defective ac unit. Money well spent and I will replace the second ac unit with a furrion soon.



by:

Replaced a 26-year-old Coleman Mack (compressor failure) with this. 90-degree, humid Midwest temps no challenge for this. On medium cool I an bring the RV down to 70 degrees inside. Easy install. I did it myself. I like the rotary controls on the disruption panel. I have a hard time with the touch screen thermostats and controllers. Very good replacement for an Older RV with an aging A/C unit.



by:

To early to tell for sure as last year bought 2 and one has failed. When working they were less noisy as before also cooled much better. etrailer handled the warranty fast and with excellent results ( thanks to Chloe ). If not for her would have been hard to give more that 1 star



by:

Had an issue out of the gate with my ac unit cover having broken tabs. Carol from customer service was amazing when I came to taking care of everything I needed including prompt and thorough follow up throughout the process, and ultimately get it replaced. etrailers customer service is in a word OUTSTANDING!!!



by:

Great service! I will order from etrailer again, I was very pleased with every part of the process.



by:

Perfect replacement for a Coleman unit. Plug and play, it’s quieter and cools better. Old unit was a 2003 and had 6600 hours on it. Hopefully we can get the same out of this unit!

Quick delivery..... Easy instal..... Works great on my Winnebago Spider Toy Hal

It arrived neatly packed and was a perfect fit and plugged right into existing wiring.

  • Roof Thickeness Requirement For Furrion Chill HE RV Air Conditioners
    The Furrion Chill HE RV Air Conditioner System # FR52PR requires a roof thickness of 3.5" to 6" to be installed. If your roof thickness is a bit smaller than 3.5" then you can thicken it up by cutting some plywood to fit around the opening and screw it into the ceiling.

  • Roof Thickness Require To Install A Furrion AC System In A 1968 Airstream Trailer
    Units like the Furrion Chill HE RV Air Conditioner System # FR52PR require a 3.5" to 6" thick roof so you may have to build a spacer to get to the correct thickness if your Airstream roof is too thin. We usually just make frame out of plywood around the cutout hole to increase the thickness and then just paint it to match the ceiling.

  • Does the Fan Run Continuously on the Furrion Chill HE RV Air Conditioner System item # FR52PR?

  • Is A 13,500 BTU Air Conditioner Enough To Cool A 16' x 7' Enclosed Trailer With No Insulation
    If the trailer was insulated then the Furrion Chill HE RV Air Conditioner System # FR52PR would be more than enough to cool it. Since the walls of an enclosed trailer are so thin and typically just a sheet of metal it's not going to maintain the temperature and cause the unit to overwork trying to keep up on a hot day. If you're not going to insulate I'd go a bit higher capacity unit, like the # FR92PR, to help prevent the unit from running constantly and wearing out prematurely. The...

  • Where Are RV Air Conditioner System Temperature Probes Located
    You're correct, and that is actually the case with all of the brands that we currently carry. The actual temperature probe is typically built into the controller # FR43PR (pictured below). If you want the system to get an accurate temperature reading you will need to run the fan to pull the hot air up to the probe.

  • How To Determine The Correct BTU Rating Needed To Properly Cool A 1968 Airstream Trailer
    The rule of thumb for determining the BTU rating needed to properly cool a trailer is to multiply the square footage of the trailer by 20. This would give you the minimum BTU rating needed to cool the space. If you fall under 13,500 then you can use the Furrion Chill HE RV Air Conditioner System # FR52PR. If you do need to go up to a 15,000 BTU unit then you'll want part # FR92PR instead. We don't currently have an updated video to reflect the systems that we currently offer at this time.

  • RV AC Unit Recommendation for 2006 Keystone Mountaineer
    The Furrion Chill HE AC units are what I recommend the highest because they blow the coldest and they are a lot quieter than other options. So for a ducted application like your 2006 Montana Mountaineer you would want the part # FR92PR for a 15k BTU unit or the part # FR52PR for a 13,500 BTU unit. Both of these come with distribution boxes as well. I would recommend the 15k unit based on the size of your RV unless you won't be in very warm climates.

  • Can Furrion Chill AC Unit be Installed on 1-1/2 Thick Car Hauler Trailer Roof
    You do need to have 3" - 6" of roof cavity depth to properly install the Furrion AC units, but since your car trailer roof is only 1-1/2" thick all you need to do is frame out the section of the roof where the AC unit will sit with lumber that is at least 3/4" thick. I have attached some clips from the installation instructions for you to check out. So now you just have to decide if you want the 13.5K # FR52PR or the 15K # FR92PR. Obviously these are pretty comparable so I would just...

  • AC Unit Recommendation for Jayco Kiwi 17A
    The Furrion Chill HE RV Air Conditioner System - Manual - 13,500 Btu - White # FR52PR is a great option for your Jayco Kiwi 17A as it comes with a built-in thermostat and lower vent assembly like you are wanting but also because we've found that it is a quieter unit that blows colder than other options as well. We don't have anything that was designed to connect to the pre-wiring of your Jayco but this would wire easily to wiring present there already. It just wouldn't be a direct plug in.

  • Is There a Stand Alone 13,500 Btu Air Conditioner
    Air conditioners need a distribution box and thermostat in order to be controlled and distribute the air, so there isn't just a self-contained AC that doesn't have those parts. We do have a 13,500 Btu ACs that is compatible with either ducted or ductless systems: - Furrion Chill HE RV Air Conditioner System - Manual - 13,500 Btu # FR52PR

  • Roof Opening Fit For Furrion Air Conditioner
    Yes, your Furrion AC, such as the # FR52PR in white, will fit a standard 14" x 14" roof opening. Any roof accessory that measures 14 1/4" x 14 1/4" will fit these openings because while they are commonly referred to as an industry standard square of 14" x 14", they're actually a little bit larger and that reference is shorthand.

  • Recommended Air Conditioner With Manual Controls For 7 x 16 Cargo Trailer
    I recommend the Furrion Chill HE RV Air Conditioner System - Manual - 13,500 Btu - White # FR52PR which has the manual controls you were wanting and is a great option for your 7'x16' cargo trailer due to the built in thermostat that will control the temperature and fan settings to keep your trailer at a comfortable temperature of your choice. The # FR52PR requires a 14-1/4" x 14-1/4" opening in the roof and requires the roof to be between 3-1/2" - 6" thick. If your roof is not quite thick...

  • Can The Furrion Chill HE RV Air Conditioner Run Off Of 15 Amp Service
    No, you would need 30 amp service in order to fully power the Furrion Chill HE RV Air Conditioner System # FR52PR. If you're boondocking then you'll pretty much be forced to use a generator like # 333-0005, unless you had an insanely large battery bank and high enough rated inverter.

  • Will Switching from a 13,500 BTU RV AC to a 15,000 BTU RV AC Be Quieter
    There's won't be much of a difference in decibels when switching air conditioner sizes but there is when switching brands. The quietest units we offer are from Furrion, the Furrion Chill HE RV Air Conditioner System part # FR52PR for 13,500 BTU or part # FR92PR for 15,000 BTU. These units both run around 60 dB's inside and 80dB's outside. If you can let me know what brand of unit you have now, I'd be glad to see if we have a setup that will allow you to reuse any existing controls. For...

  • Replacement AC For Old Coleman-Mach
    You can absolutely upgrade your air conditioner to a higher Btu unit from the 11,000 Btu Coleman-Mach AC you have now. I highly recommend going with a 13,500 Btu Furrion Chill HE because they have a low power draw (11.2 amps) similar to your current AC and a built-in start capacitor that stores power to jumpstart it so the AC is always on. You can choose from either white or black: - White: Furrion Chill HE RV Air Conditioner System # FR52PR - Black: Furrion Chill HE RV Air Conditioner...

  • Recommended Replacement Air Conditioner Unit For A 2019 Jayco Whitehawk 30RD
    I recommend replacing your 13,500 BTU Dometic unit with a 15,000 BTU to increase efficiency and keep up with the demand during high temps. Replacement rooftop units with a higher BTU rating will offer you a quick swap out option to help cool your trailer without having to make any cuts. You'll first want to remove the air distribution box cover and look for the wire harness that hangs down from the rooftop unit and then plugs into the controller. You'll want to take a look at the connector...

    Hey Brian, for a replacement AC unit for your RV I would recommend the Furrion Chill Unit part # FR52PR as we have found that it is very quiet and blows the coldest air. This fits whether the RV has a ducting setup or not and comes with a manual control vent assembly.

  • Roof Top AC Unit for Ford Transit Camper that Has Start Capacitor
    The lowest drawing AC unit we offer that has a start capacitor is the Furrion Chill HE part # FR52PR which comes with a distribution panel that would mount on underside of where your current vent is as well. This only draws 11.2 amps total.

  • Recommended Air Conditioner to Upgrade to 13,500 Btu
    The best option to upgrade to a 15,000 Btu air conditioner (we do not offer any 14,000 Btu ACs) is by going with a Furrion Chill: - Furrion Chill HE RV Air Conditioner System - Manual - 15,000 Btu - White # FR92PR The Furrion Chill # FR92PR is rare in that it is compatible with either ducted or ductless systems so it will work for you no matter if you have ducts or not. You mentioned amps, and the Chill draws 15.8 amps while it is running; it will fit roofs 3-1/2 to 6 inches thick.
