DOMETIC HARRIER PLUS AIR CONDITIONER - 3.0 KW COOL - 280MM HIGH – 44KG & 3 YEAR WARRANTY
The ALL NEW SUPER QUIET 2020 Model Dometic Harrier Plus type Air Conditioner is currently revolutionising the caravan and motorhome industry with its BIG capacity and Low average amperage draw. This Air Conditioner is the newest replacement for the Harrier Inverter. This Caravan Air Conditioner has a variable speed compressor with soft start inverter technology that allows quieter and more energy efficient operation. This essentially means that this unit will require less generator power to operate than other models of air conditioners in its class. Suitable for caravans and motorhomes up to 8m in length internally, this unit comes with an adapter to suit both 360mm x 360mm and 400mm x 400mm roof cut outs. To ensure the lowest noise, we recommend the 400 x 400 mm H-Frame.
HIGH QUALITY DESIGN AND SUPERIOR FUNCTIONALITY
A light weight (only 44kg!) and slim low line designed top unit allows more versatility with height restrictions and actual weight placed on the roof of your Caravan or Motorhome. An innovative sleep mode function reduces the compressor speed, in addition to the usual fan speeds, to further reduce noise and vibration levels while sleeping. The Dometic Harrier Plus offers 4 fan speeds as well as auto and sleep mode. All this can be controlled through the full function remote control for comfort and practicality.

Harrier Plus air conditionerBy: Geoff Cane on 9 February 2021
I researched all caravan air conditioners, and with the help of the CaravanRVCamping comparison page I bought a Harrier Plus, for the best price I had searched and got a free shipping deal. I fitted it last weekend and it works a treat, and nice and quiet inside and out. I am very happy I chose the Harrier Plus, and the service from CaravanRVCamping.

Very happy with our purchase works a treat with our little Honda no problem running the unit
I intend to run my Caravan Air Conditioner from a Generator as we will be staying in unpowered locations and my battery bank is not big enough to run the AC for very long. What size Generator do you recommend running my Caravan AC?
The answer is quite simple, and it just depends on the Caravan Aircon model you have. If you have one of the newer Caravan Aircon models that include inverter technology within the compressor (such as the Dometic Harrier or Dometic Ibis4 Aircon models), then a 2000w inverter generator will be fine.
If you have an Aircon model that does not include inverter technology within the compressor (of which there are many new and old Aircon models on the market that do not have inverter tech), then we would recommend a minimum 2200-2400w inverter generator. This is because the Aircon models without inverter technology in the compressor require a bit more power on start up.
Please note that the above sizing advice does not take into consideration any other appliances running and drawing power from the generator at the same time as the Aircon is running.
As a general rule, depending on the above criteria of Aircon compressor type, most of our Caravan customers will opt for a generator of around 2000 to 3500 watts in size. There are other larger inverter generator models available from 4000 to 6500 watts in size, but these are less commonly used by caravan/RV owners.
Popular Caravan Generator models include:
Can I run my Caravan Air Conditioner from my Caravan Battery Bank?
The short answer is yes, it is possible. However, there are a few extra important things to consider.
The main thing is how long you will be able to run your Aircon for. Let us take one of the more popular and energy efficient Caravan Aircon models on the market: the Dometic Ibis4 Rooftop Aircon: The peak power draw is around 1400w to 1500w. So, you could use a quality 2000w+ inverter (note that Caravan Aircons are 240V) with say a 200ah lithium battery and you will get around 1-2 hours Aircon run time, before you must recharge the batteries again. Depending on how you recharge your batteries (DC to DC charger, solar, mains power etc.), this charging will take time.
So once again; you can do it with certain batteries & inverters if you are aware of how that will affect your battery storage and charge loss... and knowing how to manage that system.
You can get a larger lithium battery system to run your Aircon for longer, but obviously this will cost more, so that needs to be considered. It is certainly a big recent trend that our RV customers are installing quality lithium battery systems to run their Caravans/Motorhomes etc. However, running an Aircon unit can be one of the larger power drawing appliances in your van, so it pays to consider your power system's capabilities and how long you want to run the Aircon.
If you are just pulling up for short stops (1-2hrs) and you are doing a lot of driving, you can run your Caravan Aircon from your lithium batteries for this short time. Many RV owners do this, and as new Caravan Aircon models become increasingly energy efficient and lithium battery advancements evolve to be cheaper, more powerful, and even lighter, then we will certainly see this trend increase. However, currently the popular and often cost-effective choice to run your Aircon if you do not have access to mains power (i.e., free camping) is to use a small inverter generator. You can get a quality 2000-2400w sized inverter generator from around $1,000-$1,500 and these will run many RV Aircon units for 7+ hours before having to refuel.
So once again, you can use a battery system, but it is not always the most practical option. For more advice on Power Systems to run your Caravan/RV, feel free to give us a call on: 1800 787 278.
I'm looking at buying one of your Caravan Air Conditioner models for my 20ft Caravan. What do I need to know about installation and set once I get the AC unit delivered?
Hi there, fitting and Install instructions come with each Aircon unit, but it is advised a qualified installer (electrical contractor) undertakes the installation.
What are the noise levels of your Caravan Air Conditioner units? I'm looking for a quiet model.
This is a commonly asked question by Caravan/RV owners; however, it is unfortunate that Caravan Aircon manufacturers do not provide dBA ratings in their product model specifications.
We can say that we only sell high quality Air Conditioners from premium brands in the RV industry. The only time we have encountered an issue with noise is when the install was not undertaken correctly which can cause a rattle. However, if you ensure the install is done properly, there will be no issues with any of our RV Aircon units being too noisy.
One other piece of feedback we can provide, is that the two latest Dometic Aircon models (Harrier and Ibis4) have inverter technology within the compressor, meaning any vibration is minimised. Our customers and our internal testing suggest that when these models are operating at high cooling mode, the noise level is very, very low, making them arguably the quietest Aircon models in the market.
Does the Aircon unit come pre gassed ready to go or does it need to be charged?
Yes, the Aircon is pre gassed from factory and is ready to install.
- Our caravan has a roof opening of 360 mm x 360 mm, will the Dometic Harrier suit the aperture? and be a direct replacement?
Yes, one of the most appealing features of the Dometic Harrier is that it comes with an adapter that suits most caravan, motor home roof apertures. Most RV rooftop air conditioners will only come with two opening sizes, 360 mm x 360 mm or 400 mm x 400 mm the Dometic Harrier will cater for both openings there for being able to be a direct replacement for nearly all RV rooftop air conditioners.
- What size generator can the Dometic Harrier be run off? Can I run it off my 2000w generator?
The Dometic Harrier can be run off a 2000w generator as it is implemented with invertor technology which means it has very little start up draw enabling the operator to run the unit off a 2000w generator.
- Is the Dometic Harrier Noisy? Can you hear the compressor kick in and out?
The Dometic harrier is one of the quietest rooftop air conditioners on the market because of its inverter compressor technology, the compressor is running full time and will ramp up and ramp down to comply with the thermostats instructions. Other brand air conditioners you can hear the compressor kick in and out as it will completely stop once it has reached its required cooling or heating temperature there for giving a clunking noise in operation, the Harrier has eliminated all aspects of a noisy rooftop air conditioner.
- We have a motor home which apparently has a thicker roof then a caravan, wanting to replace our existing rooftop air conditioner with the Harrier but noticed that it only caters for roof thicknesses from 30mm - 60mm. Is there a solution to this this problem?
Yes, Dometic have provided an adaption kit, part number - 81-535-DUCT3 / Thicker Roof Seal - To Suit Dometic Harrier. This kit will enable you to fit the unit to a roof thickness up to 108mm, there for making the Dometic Harrier one of the most universal rooftop air conditioners on the market.
- I have an older roof top air conditioner about ten years of age, works fine just a little loud at night when trying to sleep. Does the Harrier have any special functions for night time?
The harrier has an innovative sleep mode function which minimises the compressor speed and in addition to multiple variable fan speeds the Harrier will allow you to have a whisper quiet night's sleep.
- How often do I need to service my Dometic RV/Caravan appliances?
Dometic recommend servicing their gas appliances on a yearly basis, even if the vehicle has not been used. Additionally, bear in mind that insects can built nests in the gas appliances which will cause the appliances to stop working. It can also cause potentially dangerous scenarios.
For other appliances, such as refrigerators and air conditioners, to ensure the appliances to work efficiently and last longer it is recommended to clean the condenser.
