Over-sized(??) vinyl covers for 2 AC's

We have 2 Dometic AC's (one with heat pump) that seem to be over-sized when looking for vinyl covers. Both units are w=30 l=39 h 13.25. Does/has anyone gotten covers for these items?

Weve never covered our AC unit. And right now it's covered in snow and ice....3 degrees presently.

Sorry, no info on over-sized covers....But welcome to the new style A/Cs...The new style "low profile" unit on my bedroom is much taller than past low profile Penguin units. My 2014 34RLSA was delivered at 13'8" tall! I've changed the mounting of the hitch pin and also my truck hitch, and got it down to just under 13'6"....but still makes me nervous planning routes. You may have to contact an upholstery shop to get a cover made for your units.

Why not just cover the whole unit?

Howdy. We have the 2013 40CFK with the dual a/c's. Bought the ADCO # 3023 Size 2 covers (max dimensions:29" x 14" x 43.75") These fit our a/c's perfectly. Plenty of stretch to accommodate the 30" width. This is our first winter using these, so I'll have to wait until summer to report how well the covers held up. Ref: AC Covers

Why cover the unit? Does it leak? I too thought it necessary, till a friend set me straight. Put the money in your other pocket.

I cover mine to keep kritters like yellowjackets from building nests inside.

We don't cover the rv because it is on an island off the east coast of Florida and a full cover would last just a short time. Windy is not the word for it. But an AC cover would/should lengthen the life of the AC's.

So what does the a/c with a heat pump do. Seems a little contradictory!
