WARNING
It is important that this installation manual is properly read and understood before
installation. The unit must be installed by a qualified service technician. Failure to
properly install the unit or attempting to modify it in any way can be extremely
hazardous and may result in property damage and personal injury.
Aircommand will not be held responsible for problems relating to
incorrect or improper installation methods.
GENERAL CORMORANT UNIT INFORMATION
I. PURPOSE
The Aircommand CORMORANT air conditioning unit is designed for installation on the roof of a caravan or recreation vehicle to
provide reverse cycle heating and cooling
-The roof must be capable of supporting the weight of the unit (45kg)
-The absolute minimum thickness of the roof must not be less than 25mm
-The maximum thickness of the roof must not exceed 125mm
-Trimming of the ductwork and/or bolts may be necessary depending on the roof thickness
It is important that the unit is installed properly and according to the recommended guidelines.
Aircommand will not be held responsible for problems relating to incorrect or improper installation methods.
II. ENSURING EFFECTIVE OPERATION
The effectiveness of the air conditioner is dependent on several factors e.g. size and heatload of the van. When an Aircommand
unit is installed in a van or motorhome Aircommand assumes that the vehicle is well insulated (25mm of foam minimum) in all
walls and roof, that the windows are of moderate size (preferably double glazed) and the roof hatches are moderate, insulated
and airtight when closed. Other methods of reducing heatload include:
-Closing all doors, hatches, windows and blinds
-Position the vehicle so if an annex is used, it will face the sun and protect the windows from direct radiation
-Turning off appliances that might increase the heatload
-Ensuring the caravan/RV is parked in a shaded position
In periods of extreme high temperature it is recommended to start the air conditioner earlier in the morning to greatly improve
its ability to cope with the expected high heat load.
III. CONDENSATION
In areas of high humidity, the humid air within the van will cause “sweating” or condensation in parts of the unit as the humid
warm air contacts the colder air discharge system. If this occurs please ensure the following:
-Closing all doors, hatches, windows and blinds to limit the ingress of warm humid air
During operation the air conditioner will remove large quantities of water from the inside air and if warm humid outside air is
limited, then so the condensation will reduce greatly. Avoid running the inside fan on LO or AUTO in such conditions. Running
the fan on HI fan speed will result in higher airflow and reduce the tendency to have condensation form.
Aircommand will not be held responsible for damage caused by condensation
IV. GENERATORS
The CORMORANT unit is equipped with a gen kit that allows it to be started using a generator. Any generator used should have a
steady full sine wave at 50hz, and be able to handle the compressor start up demand. However given the vast range in quantity
and quality of generators on the market, Aircommand cannot recommend a specific model or brand. We do suggest a minimum
output of 2.8 Kw. This recommendation does not include allowances to run auxiliary equipment e.g. Battery chargers, water
heaters etc.
Aircommand will not be held responsible for damages due to the use of improper generators and such use may void your
warranty

WARNING
Failure to properly install the unit or attempting to modify it in any way can be extremely hazardous and may result in property
damage and/or personal injury
Aircommand will not be held responsible for issues arising from incorrect or improper installation methods
1. INSTALLATION POSITION
DIRECTION OF TRAVEL
Minimum 25mm clearance from
side grills to any obstruction
REAR OF UNIT
Minimum 200mm clearance from
rear grills to any vertical face
Minimum 100mm clearance to any
45 degree face
Fig 1: CORMORANT Vent clearances
Before beginning, mark out the position of the
unit considering the following important
requirements:
DIRECTION OF TRAVEL
- The air conditioner should be situated as
centrally as possible on the van, to ensure even
air distribution.
160
DIRECTION OF TRAVEL
160
170
- The front of the unit MUST face the direction
of travel; failure to follow this instruction will
result in damage to the condenser fans.
450
- If the caravan is over 23’ in length, or has an
unusually high heat load (see General
Operating Information section regarding
expectations
about
insulation
etc.),
Aircommand would recommend 2 or more
units to cool effectively.
- When considering the installation position
remember to check for clearance around the
plenum inside the van.
- Avoid an installation position where a
bulkhead, cupboard or light fitting could
interfere with the discharge air flow from the
plenum.
It is important that the unit is never
more than 5° from the horizontal and
the rear of the unit should never be
higher than the front
- Contact Aircommand if your installation
differs significantly
14” x 14”
(356mm)
SQUARE
HOLE
Fig 2: The foot print of the rooftop unit, and the plenum, measured from the hole
- The above outline on the left shows the minimum clearance required around the
CORMORANT unit on the roof of the vehicle, distances shown are calculated from a
14” square hole (356 x 356mm)
- The above outline on the right shows the minimum clearance required around the
Plenum located on the ceiling inside the vehicle, distances shown are calculated from a
14” square hole (356 x 356mm)
2. ASSESS ROOF STRENGTH
- The roof members MUST be strong enough
to support the weight of the unit (up to 45kg)
without any roof deflection that will cause
“pooling” of water around the unit. Contact
your caravan manufacturer to confirm the
max load the roof is able to handle. If in any
doubt consider the use of an external “H”
frame.
DIRECTION OF TRAVEL
LONGITUDINALS MUST BE
FIXED SECURELY TO
TRANSVERSE ROOF MEMBERS
- If the roof does not have an existing hole
one must be cut. Cut from the roof then use
the roof hole as a guide to cut through the
ceiling. Contact your caravan manufacturer
for the best method to cut through the roof.
- The square hole in the roof (356 x 356mm,
14” x 14”) MUST be boxed up with minimum
20mm square timber to provide a structure
strong enough to withstand the compression
of the installation bolts. This is also to ensure
that air in not drawn from the roof cavity
(Fig 3 & 4). Remember to leave access for
wiring.
Fig 3: Shows an ideal roof structure with strong longitudinals and a 14’ hole boxed
20mm MIN
BE SURE TO ALLOW SPACE
FOR POWER CABLE
- Longitudinals MUST be fixed securely to the
transverse roof members to transfer load
(see Fig 3).
WARNING
There may be electrical wiring located
between the roof and ceiling. Ensure that
power is properly disconnected at the
supply (mains and/or battery). Failure to do
so may result in personal injury or death
THE ROOF CAVITY MUST
BE FRAMED TO SUPPORT
THE UNITS WEIGHT
Fig 4: The roof cavity MUST be boxed with timber to provide a solid structure
TIP: Always use crawl boards across the roof
to avoid damage
3. INSTALLING ROOF GASKET
- Ensure that the roof is clean, dry and free
from grease or oil.
- Remove the paper backing from gasket and
position over square hole. Second gasket to
be located 250mm behind and parallel (Fig 5)
- Gasket must be applied with self-adhesive
side down. Note orientation of gasket to
direction of travel (Fig 5). Press gasket down
to ensure good adhesion.
- Run a bead of silicone where the roof and
the gasket meet, around the entire gasket
perimeter, to ensure water cannot leak
between the gasket and the roof surface. DO
NOT apply silicone between the gasket and
the air conditioner itself.
250mm
FRONT OF VEHICLE
Fig 5: Shows the placement of the roof gasket over the hole. Note the positioning in
relation to the front of the vehicle
4. POSITION CORMORANT ON ROOF
- Remove the air conditioner from the
carton.
- Position the unit over the gasket so that
the corners of the square hole in the
caravan roof line up with the corners of
the square hole underneath the
CORMORANT (Fig 6).
TIP: Have one person inside the vehicle
looking through the hole while the other
is on the roof adjusting the position of the
unit
Fig 6: Position the CORMORANT over the roof gasket and set it down gently
The unit weights approximately
45kg. Ensure a two person lift or
use a mechanical hoist to avoid
the risk of injury.
- DO NOT slide the unit on the roof, this
may damage the gasket and result in
leaks
- Four M8 mounting holes on the chassis
underneath the air conditioner will line
up with the corners of the square roof
hole (Fig 7).
Fig 7: Shows the view from under the roof
Position the CORMORANT so the 4 mounting holes (circled) line up with the corners
5. ATTACH SPIGOT TO UNIT
- Screw spigot onto underside of unit
with the 4 screws provided
(this step can also be done before the unit
is positioned on the roof but take care not
to damage while fitting)
- The spigot will only fit one way, be
careful to ensure spigot is positioned
correctly (Fig 8) and avoid affixing back to
front
Fig 8: Shows positioning of Spigot to be attached to underside of unit. Ensure spigot is
mounted the correct way, screw holes will not line up if attached back to front
6. CONNECT ELECTRICAL SUPPLY
- This unit MUST be installed in accordance
with State and National Wiring regulations and
in particular AS3001 – 2008
- Connect power supply to lead from unit
- Note: Brown – Active,
Blue – Neutral
Yellow/Green - Earth
WARNING
Ensure that power is properly disconnected at the supply (mains and/or
battery). Failure to do so may result in damage to the unit and personal
injury or death.

required.
Failure to cut the duct
properly can result in
an incorrect seal which
will adversely affect the units
performance
8. ASSEMBLE DUCT
- Thread a hold down bar onto
the M8 bolt and push the bolt
almost all the way into the hole
in each corner of the brace
(Fig 9)
- Leave a 10mm gap between the
hold down bar and the recess in
the plastic brace. This will allow
for easier engagement with the
four corresponding threaded
holes in the unit.
Fig 9: Insert the four M8 bolts and hold down bars into the corners of the brace
- Turn the assembly over and add
the extension duct to the top of
the assembly (Fig 11).
- Take care to avoid tearing or
ripping the duct apart.
When attaching the
duct to the unit take
care to ensure it forms
a tight, unbroken seal that
doesn’t allow discharge air to
escape.
Fig 10: Fit the extension duct onto the brace assembly ensuring a tight, sealed fit
9. ATTACH DUCT TO UNIT
- Raise the brace assembly and slip the
extension duct over the outside
diameter of the spigot underneath the
rooftop unit. (Fig 11 & 12).
When attaching the duct to
the unit take care to ensure it
forms a tight, unbroken seal
that doesn’t allow discharge air to
escape.
- Engage and tighten the four M8 bolts
with the threaded inserts in the rooftop
unit.
Fig 11: Raise the duct assembly up to the roof hole, ensuring the paper extension duct work
forms a tight fit around the spigot underneath the unit.
- Recommended tightening torque of
the bolts is 7 N.m (5.2 lb-ft). As a rough
guide the bolts should be tightened so
that the unit compresses the roof seal
gasket to approximately half its height.
- As the bolts are tightened ensure that
the hold down bars slot into their
recesses in the brace (Fig 12).
Ensure hold down bars
engage in recess
Fig 12: Then engage the four M8 bolts, taking care to ensure the hold down bars slot into their
recesses
10. ATTACH PLENUM COVER
- Connect the main cover of the plenum to
the duct by attaching the blue suspension
cord to the lug on the inside of the cover
(Fig 13). Reach into the unit, grab the
control cable plug and pull down to
-This will allow you to use two hands to
connect the control cable (see Fig 14).
- Connect the key pad control cables
together (see below). Be sure that the plug
joins the corresponding wire colours
together (yellow to yellow, red to red etc.)
Fig 13: Shows the positioning of the lug inside the plenum
cover
Failure to properly plug the
control cables together correctly
will result in loss of power to
display
Pull the suspension cord down from inside the unit and
hook it through the lug shown inside the plenum housing.
This will allow two free hands to connect the control cables
together.
11. ATTACH PLENUM COVER
- Secure the main plenum cover to the duct
assembly with the 4 screws provided (Fig
15).
TIP: It is important that these screws are
not over tightened otherwise the plenum
may crack.
- Remove the filter elements by pulling
them out of the plenum, and use the six
self-tapping counter sunk screws to secure
the covers edges to the caravan ceiling (Fig
16). In some instances a very small pilot
hole may need to be drilled to guide the
screws into place.
Fig 14: Attaching the suspension cord will allow two hands free to plug in
the control cable and affix the plenum
- Replace the return air filters by sliding
them into the plenum until they click into
place
-Your installation is now complete.
Fig 15: Secure the main plenum cover to the duct assembly with the four
screws provided

WARNING
Airborne particles can pose a health risk, particulalry to
young children and the elderly. Ensure that filters are cleaned
in a safe and well ventilated area
If a more thorough clean is required then the filters can be
washed out using warm soapy water. Care must be taken to
avoid ripping the fabric.
The filters should be cleaned every two weeks or more when
in use. Prolonged use, higher concentrations of airborne
particles and various other factors may result in the filters
needing to be cleaned more often.
Replacement filters can be ordered directly from Aircommand.
II. Mounting Bolts
Aircommand suggests that the hold down bolts are initially
checked for tightness within the first 3 months of installation,
and thereafter every 12 months if the van is in constant use.
III. Storage
MAINTENANCE
I. Plenum Filters
The air conditioner should be run on a routine basis to ensure
the components remain in working order.
The plenum filters are the only parts that require routine
maintenance. They must be cleaned periodically to ensure
that they do not become clogged with dust and other
particles.
If the van is in storage or is to remain unoccupied for an
extended length of time it is recommended than the air
conditioner is allowed to run uninterrupted for 20-30min once
every six months.
To clean the two plenum filters, first remove them both from
the plenum by pulling them out of the assembly.
For long term storage outdoors, or to protect your
CORMORANT from winter storms and weathering when not in
use, a protective cover can be purchased from Aircommand,
please call for details.
IV. Warranty Claims
Fig 17 shows the plenum filter when removed
The state of the filters can be ascertained from its appearance,
the filters are translucent, and if they appear clogged then
they should be cleaned. Generally the filters can be cleaned
sufficiently by tapping them together to shake loose the dust
and particles trapped inside.
The unit comes with a one year manufactures warranty from
date of purchase. It is IMPORTANT that you read and
understand the conditions of the warranty agreement which
