Dometic Penguin II RV Air Conditioner (13500 BTU)

  • $ 1,320.00

Need an RV rooftop air conditioner for your camper van? The Dometic Penguin II RV Air Conditioner (13500 BTU) is a low-profile RV rooftop air conditioner with sleek, futuristic styling that offers premium comfort control and improved aerodynamics. With a low profile of under 10 inches (25.4 cm) in height, the sleek shroud reduces wind resistance while the vehicle is moving. A rib-reinforced base pan delivers lasting strength, while its R410A refrigerant is more eco-friendly and releases heat efficiently. Its high-performance motor and fan deliver first-class cooling performance. The Penguin II can be used for ducted and non-ducted cooling systems. The non-ducted application requires an Air Distribution Box, and this A/C unit also requires the Dometic CCC wall thermostat (both sold separately).

This version of the Penguin II is a heat pump: that is, it can operate in cooling or heating mode. In heating mode, it can quickly raise the temperature inside a van from 40ºF to 68ºF in 30 minutes. However, for lower ambient temperatures, you'll want to use a different heater.

    Not sure which air conditioner model to get? Use a BTU calculator to determine your cooling requirements. Calculate the interior dimensions of your space, your insulation level (because it's a van with windows and not much thermal mass, I'd select "poor"), and desired temperature increase - calculate the maximum cooling output you might ever need, and size your air conditioner to be capable of that.

    Note: This air conditioner weighs around 100 pounds. The roof opening must be reinforced on the interior with a wood or metal frame capable of supporting the weight of this A/C unit (see install guide). Lifting this unit onto the roof of the RV requires two people and/or mechanical assistance using a crane, forklift, etc. Typically you will need a 3000W generator or shore power to run this A/C unit. Shipping on this unit is $99.
