giving it a "head start" on the expected high outdoor
ambient will greatly improve its ability to maintain
the desired indoor temperature.
7. For a more permanent solution to a high heat gain,
accessories like outdoor patio and window awnings
will reduce heat gain by removing the direct exposure to the sun. They also add a nice area to enjoy
company during the cool of the evening.
C. Condensation
Note: The manufacturer of this air conditioner will not be
responsible for damage caused by condensed moisture on
ceilings or other surfaces. Air contains moisture and this
moisture tends to condense on cold surfaces. When air
enters the RV, condensed moisture may appear on the
ceiling, windows, metal parts, etc. The air conditioner
removes this moisture from the air during normal operation.
Keeping doors and windows closed when this air conditioner
is in operation will minimize condensed moisture on cold
surfaces.
GENERAL INFORMATION
A. This air conditioner is designed for:
1. Installation on a recreational vehicle during or after
the time the vehicle is manufactured.
2. Mounting on the roof of a recreational vehicle.
3. Roof construction with rafters/joists on minimum of
400mm centers.
4. Minimum of 25mm and maximum of 100mm distance between roof to ceiling of recreational vehicle.
Alternate installation methods will allow for roofs
more than 100mm thick.
B. The ability of the air conditioner to maintain the desired
inside temperature depends on the heat gain of the RV.
Some preventative measures taken by the occupants of
the RV can reduce the heat gain and improve the
performance of the air conditioner. During extremely
high outdoor temperatures, the heat gain of the vehicle
may be reduced by:
1. Parking the RV in a shaded area
2. Using window shades (blinds and/or cur tains)
3. Keeping windows and doors shut or minimizing
usage
4. Avoiding the use of heat producing appli ances.
5. Operation on High Fan/Cooling mode will give optimum or maximum efficiency in high humidity or high
outside temperature.
6. Starting the air conditioner early in the morning and

either side, or front-to-back, is acceptable.
C. AFTER LOCATION SELECTION:
1. Check for obstructions in the area where air conditioner will be installed. See FIG. 4.
2. The roof must be designed to support 60 Kg. when
the RV is in motion. Normally a 90 Kg. static load
design will meet this requirement.
c. Check inside the RV for air box obstructions. (i.e.
door openings, room dividers, curtains, ceiling fixtures, etc.) See FIG. 3.
CHOOSING LOCATION FOR THE
AIR CONDITIONER
This air conditioner is specifically designed for installation on
the roof of a recreational vehicle (RV).
CAUTION
It is the responsibility of the installer of this
air conditioner/heat pump system to ensure
structural integrity of the RV roof. Never create a low spot on the roof where water will
collect. Water standing around the air conditioner/heat pump may leak into the interior
causing damage to the product and the RV.

1.
4.
AIR FILTER:
Periodically remove the return air filter located above the
removable grille in the air box. Wash the filter with soap
and warm water, let dry and then reinstall.
Note: Never run the air conditioner without return air filter in
place. This may plug the unit evaporator coil with dirt and may
substantially affect the performance of the unit.
2.
3.
AIR BOX HOUSING:
Clean air box housing and control panel with a soft cloth
dampened with a mild detergent. Never use furniture
polish or scouring powders.
FAN MOTOR:
Factory lubricated and requires no service under normal
use.
9
FROST FORMATION ON COOLING COIL:
Under certain conditions, frost may form on the evaporator coil. If this should occur, inspect the filter and
clean if dirty. Make sure air louvers are not obstructed.
Air conditioners have a greater tendency to frost when
the outside temperature is relatively low. This may be
prevented by adjusting the thermostat control knob to a
warmer setting (counter clockwise). Should frosting
continue, operate on LOW, MED. or HIGH FAN setting
until the cooling coil is free of frost.
