Will the thermostat run 3 ac's?
Why did you only use it a few times?
Does it have a black cover?

No idea if the Dometric thermostat will run 3 individual zones but I don't see why a 3rd AC couldn't be added to one of the existing zones as a "slave" and just do whatever the other unit is doing in that zone. Only used it a few times because I ordered the coach with a 15k in the front and a 13.5 in the rear. And then there was some "confusion" I'm told and it showed up with 2 13.5's. After a bunch of back and forth with the dealer (a long story for another thread) I took delivery of the coach with the 15k owed to us. It came in got swapped over and ended well except I have this brand new $1000 unit sitting in the middle of my garage.
And it has a white cover another "communication" error. But you could probably pick up a black cover for less then 50 bucks. Which means you have a new 13.5k heat pump A/C for a third the cost of a new one and I have my garage floor pack

You could always install a range vent through the microwave like I did. Quite easy fan is in microwave only need outside cover and cut hole. 4 hour job.

Hi Phil,

I to have two 13.5 ACs in the coach. I have added window awnings, front window screen, and lined the AC covers with reflectit (spelling). It was not until this past spring when I went up and painted the top of my AC and vent covers white and painted the shower skylight white that I saw the most dramatic change. While at the FMCA rally and FROG I cooled the unit with just one AC and it even cycled on and off. I really think the white paint has helped the AC units shed off the heat as well as the shower skylight keeping it from coming into the coach. Go up and touch those black covers some day. You will actually burn yourself. After painting you can lay your hand on them. As only tops are painted cannot see it from ground.

Hey Silver, great idea. With a little more research, this may change the design of these units.

Has anyone noticed that on the 13.5 AC unites the front covers (ACs mounted in living room) have more venting holes than the back? I have seen this on several coaches. One would think Dometic would have just one cover style. My next thought is to see If I can mount muffin fans under the covers to assist in pulling the heat out. Still thinking about it.
