2021 Elite II Dometic AC Model Number?


Recommended Posts

Now that I've installed a Houghton AC to replace the Dometic, I need to sell the Dometic but I cannot find the Dometic model number.  I have looked in the owner's manual and Oliver University but cannot find the actual model number.  For anyone that has a 2021 Elite 2 and you know the Dometic AC model number, would you please share it with me either by responding to this thread or PM'ing me.  Thanks.

Connor77,
I looked on our 2020 delivery day component info sheet the for the model number for our identical Dometic Penguin. This is what Oliver has listed on our sheet. I did not see any other model info anywhere in the manuals.

I myself see it's hard to justify replacing the A/C unit when it is working fine. If your new unit has a fan adjustment, or runs silent then that's the only reason I would even consider the replacement, The old unit is probably worth 50 cents on the dollar at best.

Can't speak to everyone that has converted to the Houghton, but here are a few of my reasons -

1.  The noise from the Dometic is intolerable.  You can't hold a normal conversation with it running on either high or low. I actually enjoy talking with (and listening to) my spouse over a meal without having to suffer through heat and humidity with the A/C turned off.  

2.  The cycling of the compressor is very noticeable, especially when trying to sleep.  I'm a light sleeper and it would wake me up frequently.

3.  Current draw of the Dometic is considerably higher than the Houghton.  For those with lithium, you can probably run the Houghton (or the new Truma) overnight on battery power alone.  Doubt that is possible with the Dometic.

4.  The Houghton has three fan speeds with a real difference between each and a dehumidify mode.  It also comes in a heat pump version (which we installed) and will allow us to heat the trailer in mildly cold conditions versus running the propane fueled Suburban furnace.

Other than that, not really much going for the Houghton 😉

I'm on my second summer in NC with the Houghton and I've used it a LOT.  I regularly use our Ollie as a quiet place to relax year round even when at "home".  I do agree with all of @katanapilot's reasons, pretty much in that order too.  My wife and I both agree that it's easily the best "luxury" modification we have made to our Ollie (second would be installing a dedicated shower mixer with the High Sierra head).

@connor77, I tried to sell the lightly used Dometic on Craig's list for about half of what it's worth (as suggested by @Trainmanabove).  I only tried Craig's list as I didn't want to deal with shipping.  Never had any interest or offers so I gave up after about a month.  Still sitting in my garage today.  No chance I'll ever reinstall it, so I may end up giving it away - I'll wait until you have sold yours though.  😉

John - you can re-list yours 🙂.  Just sold our Dometic for $700 to a nice couple from Vermont.  We agreed to meet in the middle and met them in New Hampshire.  Super smooth transaction.   Within 45 minutes of putting it on Craigslist I had interest.  First person that emailed me bought it.  
Feel really fortunate.  One less thing to trip on in the garage!

Congratulations,  @connor77!

@NCeagle, might be more takers in the summer heat?

Mine was old (2008), but worked, so I listed parts for free. No takers in a week, so it went to recycling.

Congrats on the sale and garage space reclaim. I am so happy to hear it all went well. Great job!!

And yet another reason to upgrade -

We are camped today at the Medora campground, parked next to a very nice Airstream with two Dometic Penguin air conditioners. We had hoped to sit outside to eat, but the external noise from the Dometics made that undesirable, so we ate inside instead.

You can barely hear our Houghton outside over ambient noise. Being a good neighbor is another positive!

Did you have an opportunity to partake in the “Pitchfork Fondue” whilst there???

Yes we did.  We had some discussion about whether it was worth the price - however, we ultimately decided it was part of the experience.  It's not inexpensive but I'm glad we did it.  The musical was entertaining and enjoyable.
