Hard to believe because everything I have ever owned made by Coleman was junk , went a bought all new almost everything a few years ago , cooler , lantern , fan , gas grill and every one of the items broke before the weekend was over , first time grilling and the handle on the grill broke and caused me to get burned pretty bad and for paying a couple hundred bucks for it , it didn't last 3 camp outs before it fell apart nothing but junk

On 95+ days with 100% humidity, it stays around 72F inside. Sealing up all ducts, sealing end run of duct and sealing up holes internally on units paid off for me. Also opened up two return air ducts with 2" PVC pipe.
This is why sometimes testimonials are somewhat dubious. 95 and 100% humidity would be a heat index of 161!

We've been extremely pleased with our Dometic units on our Columbus. The bedroom unit was replaced during the first year under warranty due to excessive noise, but like at least one other person mentioned above - generally we keep only one unit running and can keep things around 74 to 75 even in the blistering hot Texas heat.

We are in our Columbus at least one week out of each month year-round and always stay cool.

Guess we got lucky too.

Hey ghiotom, I'm not the weather man. But it was 95+ here in TN and the dew point was in 70's. My Dometic units work extremely well. The heat index was over 100F. And this ain't dubious.

My 321BHTS came with one Dometic Brisk air II - 1500 and the ONLY reason I installed the second 1500 was due to the July heat index here in Alabama being 100+ deg and the three grand kids leaving the doors wide open every trip in & out.

No problems with my units in the first 2 years.

Then... walk into a unit that was uncomfortable and/or blowing hot air... Dometic.

To a tee!
My Dometic ACs in my Georgetown cool OK but I wish someone would design a roof AC that was not so noisy. I am wondering if the new Dometic Brisk is much quieter. See link

Wed. was hot and a long day for me at Hershey but, when I was in a Jayco (I think) I found the A/C quiet. There was some that were more quiet than others. That department is DH's job but since he could not be there I was there to just weed out the ones I don't like inside, lol. You know the wifey job.

I know there was an issue with these - a manufacturing process problem that was supposedly corrected. Hoping mine were made AFTER the fix.
Are your Brisk's any quieter?
