Question about Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

2 Answers

Minimal and slow heating/cooling

We recently bought a seconhand 15ft van with a Dometic rooftop a/c. The specifications are:
Product No 958 500 183
Model No B19005
Serial No 70700078
Date 2007
We find that it takes up to 45mins to take the chill off the air. There are no instructions and so we have little or no idea on how this a/c runs or what it's performance should be like. Can we get a boolklet from anywhere or can anyone help us with this problem? J and L

You should be able to hang meat in that van in 45 min in the desert the unit is low on charge also the heat funtion is not worth having if it is a heat strip and not a heat pump heat strip is like running a toaster over a fan just gonna take off the chill not heat the coatch

I have a dometic duo therm roof ac unit that is low on freon - can the system be recharged?


It is a closed system, (ends are soldered) that said, a heating and cooling guy may be able to install fill valves and re-charge for you, but make sure you get a quote ahead of time. How old is the unit? Not normal for them to need re-charge, and I've seen them work good for 15 years, if maintained properly. Has it been completely cleaned recently?

We have a 2005 Country Coach Allure with 3 Dometic rooftop air conditioner/heat pumps. One of the units will come on start to cool then quickly turn to heat then cool then heat. What could the problem...


Hi; Sounds like a problem with the tstat or the defrost sensor. Also have these units been cleaned yearly. Also if the differential between heat and cool is small this will cause the unit to cool then heat due to the low differential at the tstat...alpharome416

Dometic air conditioner blowing cool air


When the cooling slows down, but water is still running off, usually something is icing up. You can turn the unit off, and let it thaw, and try again. Sometimes, if the humidity is high, this is more pronounced. It sounds like you are low on refrigerant. That implies that you have a slight leak. You should have the unit serviced, and the leak repaired.

Thermostat slow to turn AC compressor on. fan comes on but takes 5 min. before compressor comes on


Most a/c's have a 5 minute delay before the compressor turns on and they will do the same when changing from cooling or heating to cooling.

I have a Dometic rooftop air conditioner 8000 model. When on heat in cold climate I found the a/c unit did not heat our caravan sufficiently.


the reason for this is either the reverser valve or air restriction first clean the a/c by removeing the cover on the roof and the inside clean the cooling fins then remove the sheet metal or plastic cover over the intake fan & clean the shroud then clean the filters inside the van reassemble every thing then turn the unit on & from inside check the side were the wires are to feel for air by turning the unit on cool there should be a big diffrance between the intake from the out put use duct tape to seal off the sides also clean the duct work with air to remove blockage in the duct
