My new Damon has Carrier AC's . I had'nt heard of them before.
Any one have experience with them, good or bad. I did'nt like their idea right from before I bought it. It can only be operated with the remote control and the furnace is also controlled thru the AC and the same remote control.
Any way my front AC quit working. Of course it was 95 deg. out. It's under warrant and I took it in. The service writer said it was one of the 'top of the line ACs. Any opinions on this system. BTW, it's 2 weeks old.

max49,
I dont know about their RV AC units, but Carrier has been a leading name in the residential and commercial AC industry for many years. They make great and reliable AC systems for residential use. Hope this helps a little.

The Carrier roof a/cs seam to be quieter than the other three I know of. THey have performed very well and once you get the one giving you a problem corrected I think you will be satisfied with them. Be sure to maintain the filter.

I have a 15,000 BTU Carrier on my Airstream TT. It is by far the BEST RV a/c I've ever had! Quiet, and it cools! The 15,000 BTU heat pump units (2) in our bus conversion are another brand and while they work just fine, are not anywhere as quiet as the Carrier.

Just my $.02 worth

Thanks guys, it sounds like they make a good unit. It was quieter than my coleman but I was'nt that impressed with its cooling. Then it quit all together and the green light started flasshing. I hope it cools better than it did before it quit al together.

How about the fact that the furnace is controlled thru the AC? Is this a tried and proven reliable set up?

RV Wizard, are you familiar with the green light on the unit. Green means the power is on but flashing green means malfunction, and "see your service dept". Is there a common problem when this happens?
If it wasnt under warranty, I'd replace it with a 15,000 BTU, but then how the heck would my remote control turn on the furnace. Why, why would they want to interconnect these 2 very important appliances? Seems like 1 going down could very well take the other one with it.
The rear AC which is the same as the front cools the bedroom well but does very, very little for the front part of the coach.

Other manufacturers have also incorporated 2,3 a/cs and even up to 2 furnaces on a single thermostat for a good number of years and has not been that big of an issue. True they are connected, but only by a 12 volt source and I bet even now with your a/c being down it may still alow you to turn on the furnace.

I also have the air conditioners you have. I don't have a great memory, but in the manual, you can find instructions to turn on the heat or air without the remote. I think you press the button on the grill portion itself.
Mine are working great. Hope you will enjoy them once it is repaired.
