Do not go with the Atwood HP you will end up loathing the day it was installed...

I was able to cut down a LOT of noise and vibration on our Coleman Machs by balancing the condenser fan. It was very easy using a lawn mower blade balancer and bits from the HW store.
The white bushing was ground down to a "D" shape in order to fit into the blade's shaft hole and the metal clips were used to balance the blade. HUGE difference. I also sanded off the excess mold flashing from the fins.

I have a Atwood AirCommand 13.5 Non Ducted/Non Heat on my trailer. It had a new Dometic on it when we got the trailer in 2015 but it never worked properly so when E Trailer was having a sale I bought one. It was around $700 and I sold the old Dometic to a rv mechanic for $250. AtWood now unfortunately is owned by Dometic and I do not know if they moved production to the states. My unit says Made in Australia on it as well as the function and performance test paperwork. It is very quiet, blows ice cold, throws air 2 to 3 times further than the Dometic did and is small gen friendly.

Atwoods are made in the USA per their current info
Dometics are made in China
RVP/Coleman are made in Wichita, Kansas
1. 13.5 Atwood air volume is 360 CFM (cubic feet/minute)
2. 13.5 Dometic air volume is 350
3. RVP 13.5 is 320
If Dometic follows what they did with Atwood refers, they will discontinue the Atwoods. Until the current slow down in the RV market, BEFORE the corona virus, Dometic and RVP had a hard time supplying enough AC un its to the OEM's. So, it made sense to continue the Atwood AC production. With the RV market slowdown in sales Dometic may discontinue the Atwoods. I have seen lots of companies try to go against RVP and Dometic, including Carrier. NONE could make any headway into the RV OEM sales. Doug

Yes, I have the RV air conditioner, and I used it for a year now which is a great product. I think it is the best rooftop ac I ever have. And the best part is that if anyone has an issue with their ac their service team very responsive and done your ***Link Removed*** with a best rotational team they have.
