15,000 BTU.

Or if your budget allows, install 2 of them.

Yep, and put in a 50amp Intellipower while you're at it

Andy's right on. I thought I might need two air conditioners on my 34 footer. But so far, even at 91 degrees out, the white roof and new 15,000 btu unit is doing a good job.

Yep, I believe Palomino Parts is a part of Palomino RV. The number I called is 800-297-5830.

I personally wouldn't even consider a 13,500 unit anymore. You can always dial in "less cold" on the thermostat on the 15,000. There's no "Turbo Boost" button on the 13,500's though

Best of luck,

I am looking for a replacement AC for my 84 sovereign. I see these posts are fairly dated and would like some updated info on current 15000 ac's currently available. I spoke to Javin at Palamino, he stated the only brand they carry that would work is the Penguin. I would like to know the benefits of Coleman vs Penguin.

Make sure which ever AC you may select, that it has a drain tube, or that Airstream has a drain pan for it.

Without that, water will run down the side of the coach.

Most unfortunately, Carrier has gotten out of the RV a/c business. I called them up and asked them "Why?" As everyone said they made excellent units, and I myself can personally attest that they did in fact make excellent RV a/c units. The lady I spoke to said that they simply did not sell enough RV units, as a percentage of all the units they sell, to make it worth it for their business plan. In other words, residential house units and commercial building units were a super high percentage of their business, and their RV business percentage was so low it wasn't worth it.

A real shame, as the Carrier RV units are really nice. My 15,000 btu AiRV is thee years old and works great.

Anyway, I'd look hard at the Dometic (Penguin) now if I were in the market.

My old Delta-T lasted 20 years, so I hope the Carrier does too.

See ya on the road,
