Got my TH back today with the new a/c installed and it works perfectly again. It took almost 2 weeks, but it seems to have been done right.

We just got back from the beach. This was the first trip where we had to use A/C since we bought it. We have two 15K Domestics on our 40ft fiver. the main ducted unit couldn't keep the coach cool at all. it was 95 outside and it is 85-88 inside during the day. You could feel the air coming out the vents was slightly cool at best. The unit in the master was very COLD and you could hang meat in there. Our fiver is less then year old so I'm taking it to the dealer on Saturday and get that thing checked and replaced.

We have 2 more trips further south in Florida and I don't want to sweat like a pig inside my unit.... I can go outside for that! LOL

Beginning to sound like Dometic had a bad run of 15K units...

Yea Herk, no kidding.

This sounds exactly like the problem i had. I can tell you that when they replaced my unit, the new one had consistent delta T's and my wife is actually asking me to raise the temp! My only suggestion is to work with the dealer and have them do what they need to do to document the issue, and call Dometic to document it on their end. Make sure you have some info to give them such as serial number, model number, etc... you can get that off a sticker visible if you remove the intake grill.

Also in the mean time, check your duct work as best you can for debris. I did find a circle cut out from one of the vents in mine.

Hopefully the dealer will work with you in troubleshooting the issue.

I have a 15 27RLWS with a ducted 15K AC. We are at the beach in Corpus Christie and the unit will not cool the unit down at all. Even during the evening it wasn't that cool. This is very disappointing. I will be taking the unit in when we return.

It does sound like a bad batch, they all had the same issue. Mine did the same thing as the past 2 posters. It was replaced for free by Dometic under warranty, but it did take 2 weeks.

While your camper is out of warranty I would call the AC manufacturer.
Perhaps there is a "silent recall" or they might comp the service call.
You won't know until you ask.

If you are going to the Rally I would send a service request.
