Carrier AirV High Capacity Heat strip

I currently have the Carrier AirV !5,000 BTU Ac on my 1976 Sovereign. But when I bought it, I guess in the summer, a few years ago I din not get the ceiling assembly with the Heat Strip. I see them advertised for around $!30. I am assuming that I can simply replace my ceiling assembly with the new one that includes the heat strip. Am I missing something.

Thanks

Don

Hi Don,

I have a Carrier on my Excella. My understanding is that the ceiling units are interchangeable. Mine is a heat pump model that switches to the heat strip when temps fall below a certain level, somewhere in the 30s or 40s (according to whether you believe the documentation or actual observations).

No, you should be able to get a heat strip for yours, or a complete ceiling assembly. If you are going to mail order, try family rv parts in Port Richey, Florida.

Hi Terry,

Best to Marie, Sophie, and the gang at Inland.

Thatís where I got my Carrier 15,000Btu heat pump model. Itís 31 right now, high for the day, and 69 inside. It was warmer earlier, but I turned the heat down.

Read the Ad thoroughly; Says you must have purchased the Carrier air conditioner unit from them within the past 10 minutes, for this price

Give them a call and see if he will deal with you. I, too, got my Carrier AirV w/heat strip from FamilyRV, and they were extremely nice and very helpful. When I told him I had an Airstream, he took an extra 10 minutes to explain to me how he usually installs the units given the curvature of the ceiling, all of this while he was out in the field on an installation job.

Great people, good luck!

-Marcus
