I have a 355QBQ and it came with one 13,500 Dometic. I added a 15,000 Dometic. Is that the info you were looking for?

Thanks for replying Okl marine. Could you also tell me is that a good size unit. We have 2 units in our sierra. One for the main part of the fifth-wheel and a smaller 1 in the bedroom. The one in the bedroom does fine but the other one can't get the area below 84 when it's in the high 90's outside.

I matched mine up to the same brand as the one that came with the camper. However, I went with the bigger unit to add because it wasn't much more in price and just incase the other should stop working while we are out camping then I have a more powerful unit to cool

Up to 38 or so feet, a 15,000 in the back and 13,000 in the BR should adequately cool if you can use them both at the same time on 50a service.

360PDEK with a 15000 and a 13500 and have no issues keeping our fiver cold. Are your units ducted together? If so set your bedroom unit to a much lower temp and that will help push more cold air to the back. Also, pull your end vents and stuff a towel or insulation just past the vents. A lot of air goes past those vents and this made a bid difference in air flow in our unit.

We just camped for four days in 100+ temps in Texas and after the first two days we realized that about 10am we needed to turn on both ac units (15000 in main area, 13500 in bedroom) and it would keep cool at 76-78 in both rooms. At night we would turn off the bedroom ac and run just the main room one as we aren't used to cold temps at night (we keep home unit at 78-80). Our unit is 40' long with ceilings that aren't low (not sure exact height). Our friends with a V-lite kept theirs so cold for him that she had to use an electric blanket at night. Theirs is 30', I think with lower ceilings but that's just not comfortable for us. We had 11 people over one night playing a dice game called LCR and it was very cool and comfortable (of course it was at night).

I just know that you need to keep it moderately cool at all times for the ac units to work adequately. If the rv gets hot inside, it takes a long time to cool down, at least for us.
