Caravan Air Conditioner
Reviews: Rated 5/5 based on 4 reviews. SKU: HARRIER-LITE-KIT Learn More»
DOMETIC HARRIER LITE
The Dometic Harrier Lite gives you all the benefits of inverter technology, although in a lighter and smaller roof top unit when compared to the full sized Dometic Harrier and Dometic Ibis MK4. This results in a lightweight and very economical caravan air conditioner that is suitable for poptops and smaller to mid sized caravans. It is a direct replacement for the Aircommand sparrow, Truma Aventa and Dometic FreshJet 2200 - all of which are the lightest caravan rooftop airconditioners on the market.
The Dometic Harrier Lite comes in at just 36kg and is adaptable for both 360x360 and 400x400mm size roof openings. This makes it a suitable option for just about any roof top air conditioner replacement in vehicles such as full height caravans, motor homes, pop tops, camper trailers, buses and trucks. The Harrier Lite is both compact and functional in its design with low profile engineering both internally and externally.
Internally there are cool white LED lights for added lighting in your caravan or RV. You can vertically adjust the airflow on individual vents to optimise the airflow in your vehicle and installation is simplified with a 2-piece internal ADB so you can be on the road faster. The advanced internal ducting componentry has integrated a free-flowing airflow through the ADB (air distribution box) dispersing throughout the internal space of the vehicle giving the user a comfortable heated or cooled application.
The Harrier Lite has been put through stringent, fastidious testing as a part of its creation to deliver a highly advanced system in order to ensure efficiency, longevity and practicality. So, if you’re in the market for a new lightweight, compact rooftop air conditioner look no further than the brand new Dometic Harrier Lite.

Dometic Harrier Lite 36kg Rooftop Air ConditionerBy: Sophie Day on 17 December 2021
We love our Dometic Air Conditioner! It works so well and I think it is a must when travelling in hot and humid areas. The best thing is if you're in a van/ campervan you can generally cool the area down and then turn it off whilst sleeping. This is great to save on power as it does draw a fair amount but nothing out of the ordinary. My partner found it fairly easy to install too. Super happy with our purchase!
Good purchaseBy: James Holland on 10 September 2021
This aircon is well-made, fitted exactly as described, neat internal fitting and overall a significant improvement over the original brand fitted

- Why can't I activate the sleep function on my Harrier Lite air conditioner?
The sleep function is only available when using the cooling or heating modes. Ensure you are in either one of these modes, then set your required temperature, press the moon button and the sleep function should be activated (the moon symbol will appear on the air distribution box display when it is activated).
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.
