I purchased this unit for more money than the competition, tri-pac/carrier.
So far, I am very DISSATISFIED with this unit.
I spent more than 5 days go back to their warehouse to fix problems with the install. First off it would not stay running.
They did a piss poor job on the fuel line tubing. Evidently it has leaks in the welds. I had to route my own fuel line to keep the unit running.
Secondly, the A/C system had a leak. They replaced everything from the compressor all the way to the hvac. To no avail. Finally a tech at T/A put dye in the system and we found the leak in the Hvac. Fixed the leak, it was missing an O ring and recharged the system. It still not cooling worth a crap.
If it is above 75 degrees outside it won’t keep you cool inside.
I am now having to go back to their shop in Indy, to have the alternator replaced. It threw a belt, so I replaced it with one of the 2 they provided. It burnt both the spare belts due to the clutch/bearings being bad. This is all within a 5 week time frame of purchasing the unit.

In my opinion, I would go with the less expensive more dependable competitors and save yourself a lot of remorse.
The reason I went with this unit was because it had a built in A/C compressor and high amp alternator. So far, it was a bad decision on my part. Even with the discount I got through OOIDA, I over payed in my opinion.

I purchased this unit as an upgrade to the Rigmaster, it was put on a team truck that needed more cooling power. It has not provided any cooling worth talking about. It has more breakdowns that carter has pills. Will not start on first try, routed the fuel line across the exhaust pipe and burned a hole in the line. The pully came off the alternator and damaged the shaft.The belt tensionor fell apart and had to be fabricated, can not contact anyone a promax for wiring information so a professional shop can solve the issues. I spent to much for what I got. The idea is good but the installation was done by amatures that did not care about their customers.

If I could give less than a one star rating- I would, that is what it would get. All the problems that the two reviews above have had and more. Do not under any conditions buy one of the worst unit made.
