Dometic has brought this rooftop Penguin II 15K BTU 651816 Series Heat Pump Air Conditioning unit to the table with a high-performance motor and fan that together delivers superb cooling. This unit also uses a more eco-friendly R410A refrigerant!
The engineers at Dometic have taken what YOU (an actual RV-er) wants in an AC unit and have brought it to life with the all new Penguin II Series. The most sought after features that consumers voiced were that they wanted a unit that cools evenly, quickly and efficiently while still running as quietly as possible.
The Penguin II is a powerful cooling machine while remaining as a low, compact profile, sitting at only 11-1/4" tall. The sleek, contemporary shroud combined with the lower overall height helps improve aerodynamics and reduces wind resistance for when you are driving or towing your RV down any road. While that might not seem like a big deal, it most certainly is!
When you are towing your fifth wheel, travel trailer, etc. or driving your Class A or Class C and so on, you want as little wind resistance, or "drag", as possible. The bigger the vehicles and campers, the more gas consumption! And when your engine has to work harder to reach higher speeds on the highway, the smaller amount of "drag", the better!
This is especially important when you have multiple rooftop AC units or other products such as satellites and antennas that will also contribute to more wind resistance while you are driving.
Despite the Penguin II's compact and lightweight design, the robust rib-enforced base pan ensures that the Penguin II can handle tough environments for a longer service life. The custom wrap-around shroud and carbon steel base pan adds strength, protection, and durability to contribute to this lasting design.
Dometic goes the extra mile and insulates their Penguin II units with an EPP foam housing which not only provides a little bit of added protection to the interior components of the AC unit, but it also contributes to the lighter weight by not using sheet metal as insulation. The EPP foam housing supports better cooling while minimizing noise.
Larger air openings in the shroud and the base allow for improved air flow and cooling, while still running quietly. Dampening brackets are used to reduce noise and vibration.
