Thanks. Do you know whether there is a "low profile" Dometic cover out there?

There are low profile air conditioners available.

That might be an answer, but not a real cheap answer.


Brevi tempore!

A "hot rod" friend down the street with a detached two car garage wanted a taller garage. He assembled a parking lift in the center, then built a wooden truss work above the drive on ramps to the wall studs. He then unbolted the garage from the foundation. The parking lift had no trouble raising the garage just over five feet. He had per-fabricated five foot walls which he assembled on the foundation, then lowered the structure onto the five foot walls, bolting everything together securely. He now has ample room to park one car above the other using the parking lift. He did this by himself.

If you have a detached garage, raising the structure a foot or two should not be a really big job.

I am thinking the Dometic AC on the 2015 FC is the low profile version. It doesn't look like there is any room under the cover and looks about as low as it can go unless I am missing something.

The OEM Dometic Penguin that comes with your 25 IS their lowest profile A/C unit and measures 11" from the roof.

You can increase your clearance by using an RVP/Coleman Mach 8 unit, which is 8 " off the roof, but will require you to change your t/stat and wiring…..not a very pleasant job as it also involves your furnace.
