Nomadic Cooling 2000 12V RV Air Conditioner (9830 BTU)

  • $ 4,190.00

Looking for a way to run an RV air conditioner while off-grid from your batteries alone? The Nomadic Cooling 2000 12V RV Air Conditioner (9830 BTU) is the perfect solution! It installs onto your van’s roof just like traditional RV air conditioners but is vastly more energy-efficient. In fact, this Nomadic Cooling AC uses less than half of the electricity compared to a traditional rooftop unit. Most rooftop air conditioners require 120 volt AC power to operate. Normally this is provided by shore power or a generator. In some cases, you can run a standard unit from an inverter but inverters often struggle starting the compressor. In contrast, the Nomadic Cooling air conditioners use 12-volt DC power so it can run directly off your 12-volt battery bank without an inverter. 

    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.

    Notes: This item is large and must ship via truck freight, shipping is $290.

      Eco Mode vs Powerful Mode

      Eco Mode should be the default operation type on a Nomadic Cooling air conditioner.  Powerful mode should only be used for short periods of time for maximum cooling, as powerful mode has increased consumption of energy.
