Quiet Air Conditioner for Motorhomes

Regular price $3,143.00 Sale

At this time, we're only installing A/Cs at ARV on Class B RVs and installations that are simple A/C swaps.

Please note we are not shipping them out to 3rd party/DIY installers anymore due to not being able to ensure the quality and testing needed when installed elsewhere. 

To have it installed at ARV, we will need photos of your RV roof before scheduling. We're looking for any obstructions that are too close to the A/C such as skylights, solar panels, etc. The balance of $3,143 minus the deposit is due after the installation is complete. The deposit will be taken after photos are sent in and an appointment is scheduled. Please email Chris with your photos.

Please refer to the photo below for the clearance needed for installation. There needs to be ~7" of clearance in front of the square hole and ~24" clearance from the back of the square hole. There needs to be ~20" on each side of the square hole.


Description

Our Quiet Motorhome 13,500 BTU Air Conditioner has excellent cooling and dehumidifying capability, even in demanding conditions like high outside temperatures and radiated sun. This unit is 20% more efficient and many times quieter than any other we have tested. It is even quieter than our ceiling ducted design.

The Quiet RV Air Conditioner is also better constructed with more compressor mount isolation; all metal, balanced fans; and an excellent design balance between compressor, evaporator, and condenser components. It is easy to operate, with AC, Dehumidify and Fan modes that match widely varying comfort needs. This unit can be retrofitted to Class A, B, B+, and C motorhomes, trailers, and 5th wheels including Airsteam, Roadtrek, Pleasureway, Hymer, Leisure Travel, Winnebago, Prevost, and more.

Match your van's exterior color with an optional, custom color match for your Quiet Air Conditioner cover. Please ARV provide your 4-digit custom color code when booking your appointment. 

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you plan to replace an AC with a wall-mounted thermostat (Dometic Penguin, etc.), please know that the heat function of your wired thermostat may be rendered inoperative if you arrange for the installation yourself. If Advanced RV performs the installation we can often, but not always maintain the wall-mounted thermostat. Our Quiet AC is controlled by a lit touchpad on the plenum and/or remote control.

dream come true, cool as you could need, quieter than I thought possible

We were struggling with our stock Winnebago A/C. It worked, but it was so loud. One of us is on the autism spectrum and the other has a serious ear injury, so it was really affecting our quality of life. And if that wasn't enough, I'm also going through a neurological problem that makes everything difficult. It was difficult to focus or enjoy our time in the van with the blasting fan noise, and we could not possibly sleep with it on, so often we were ridiculously hot. Then we get this beauty, and we (like others) only ever have the problem of forgetting it is on. Quiet, cold, easy to control. We got it installed at advanced RV based on others telling us they are the best, and even with that sort of expectation we were surprised just how friendly and accommodating they were. The experience has convinced us to never use a cut-rate place again, and only save for the best.

I’m in Michigan, where it goes from 20 to 88 faster than a Mustang on steroids. I saved up for the Houghton since the day I got my rig in 2019. And. It is undoubtedly THE BEST upgrade you can do. While ARV couldn’t do the actual install (I was so bummed) Chris and the ARV crew went above & beyond helping me get it done at Holland Motorcoach in MI. Photos were exchanged, phone called were made, and they shipped the unit out complete and crated so well that it arrived in pristine condition. Install was smooth due to the diligence of both companies working together. Having older dogs combined with a personal heat intolerance, this has improved the quality of my travels. At one point I thought I blew a fuse because I could not hear the unit running while standing next to the van. Inside, compared to my old jet engine AC, this one is barely noticeable, and I can actually watch a movie or read without feeling like I’m in a cargo plane. People have mentioned decibels - trust me, this is quieter than any AC out there. If you’re on the fence about this upgrade, it is worth every penny. It is truly THAT GOOD. 2019KL

Cool Decision

From the first conversation with Chris to Tricia the front desk host to meeting Patrick our installer(who managed to keep all three solar panels on the roof) to Mitchell who gave a quick operations tutorial -this is a class act group of experts. My iphone app showed about an 18 decibel decrease in sound( and that’s with 20% more btu’s). Advanced RV lived up to its name and the experience exceeded expectations- and all before we take a trip that includes MS, Al, LA and Texas.
