Rooftop Air Conditioner Basics – Q and A

We get a lot of questions about rooftop air conditioners, especially the GE Rooftop Air Conditioners. Whether you are a mechanic at an RV dealership or a proud new owner of any type of RV, these answers from our team can help you understand and utilize the GE RV air conditioner to its fullest extent. 

If you have others, feel free to contact us and our friendly service team would be happy to answer them! 

Can the GE Rooftop Air Conditioner plug into my existing system?

Yes, we have adaptor kits that will connect the GE Rooftop Air Conditioner with the single zone and mechanical controls of several legacy systems. Unfortunately, these cannot be applied with heat pump models just yet, but we are actively working on a solution for better compatibility of the heat pump model with legacy systems. 

Is the GE Rooftop Air Conditioner safe to run overnight?

Yes, all rooftop air conditioning systems are designed to be run overnight. One thing we love about the heat pump model by GE Appliances is the auto changeover feature. Once the outdoor temperature gets below 25°F, the heat mode automatically engages the auxiliary heat sources (e.g. RV furnace) to provide ultimate comfort and to prevent you from having to switch it yourself in the middle of the night. 

Can I install the GE Rooftop Air Conditioner myself?

While there are many experienced DIY campers that are very capable, we always recommend that it get installed by an experienced RV maintenance technician. 

How long does a GE Rooftop Air Conditioner last?

It depends on how often you use the product and environmental conditions at play. GE Appliances has strict testing standards that will ensure maximum lifespan no matter where you go. 

Does the GE Rooftop Air Conditioner run on propane or generator?

This runs on a generator. We advise that the user consult their generator manufacturer’s recommendations for best performance.

Can you run the GE Rooftop Air Conditioner on solar power?

This is completely dependent on the size of the system and RV air conditioner model. If you have the appropriate system and model, then the GE Rooftop Air Conditioner is compatible with most solar power systems. We are constantly developing products for this market and plan to have more solutions in the future for easier connectivity and more efficient operations. 

Can you have multiple units?

Absolutely, depending on the power availability (30 or 50 Amps) you may see 1 to 3 RV air conditioners on a coach.

What kind of RV maintenance and cleaning is required?

We recommend always keeping your filters clean, as well as inspecting and cleaning the condenser coil periodically. Just like your home, these coils can become dirty and clogged with debris from the outside environment. If these are not kept clean, it can affect the efficiency of the RV air conditioner and possibly shorten its lifespan.

Upgrade Your RV Cooking with the GE Profile OTR Oven

RVs are a home away from home. And at the heart of every home is the food that brings families and friends together. Luckily, gone are the days of relying on campfire meals when you decide to take your “home away from home” out on the open road. 

RV stoves and ovens have gotten major upgrades in recent years. 

With all of the new technologies available, making a home-cooked meal while traveling is easier than ever. We’ve been looking at different RV appliances that will change your travel experience, and we think you’re going to really like this one for your RV kitchen.

The GE Profile Over The Range Oven with Advantium Technology will revolutionize how you make meals while RVing – and even perhaps help you elevate what’s on the menu. The amount of time and energy this addition can save is well worth it. The device mounts above a cooktop – with an easy installation process – and acts as an all-in-one meal prep appliance.

Need more convincing? 

Well, keep reading to learn how the GE Profile OTR Oven with Advantium Technology will upgrade your meals and cooking experience while traveling in your RV. 

How does it work?

Have you heard of Advantium technology? It combines three different heating methods to create an unparalleled cooking experience. 

Halogen light, microwave energy, and authentic European convection work together to provide the exact amount and type of heat when your food needs it. That means that whatever you choose to make in your RV oven will come out perfectly brown on the outside and moist on the inside every time.

What’s for dinner?

This RV oven features over 275 pre-programmed menu selections so that you can take the guesswork out of the cooking process and expand your cooking capacity. To make a home-cooked meal in your RV kitchen, all you need to do is follow three simple steps:

And you’re not limited to the pre-programmed cooking options either. If you want to cook something that’s not in your settings, you can add up to 30 of your own menu options into the queue.

Speed-up Meal Prep in Your RV.

When you’re on an RV trip, you want to get the most out of your time in the place you’re visiting. 

Unfortunately, without the right appliances, making dinner in an RV can be a time-consuming process. 

That’s why Speedcook is an unmatched addition to any RV kitchen. With the Speedcook setting, you can use the 120V oven to get oven-quality results two to four times faster than a conventional RV oven.

Customize your RV cooking experience.

Space is limited, so you need to make sure that the RV appliances that you choose are worth the space that they use. 

Expand the cooking versatility of your RV kitchen with the addition of an all-in-one oven – and reduce the need for other cooking aids. The GE Profile OTR Oven features broil, microwave, Speedcook, warm, and convection settings that give you the freedom to create any type of dishes from the comfort of your space without the need for several different appliances.

Get all the bells and whistles.

The GE Profile OTR Oven comes equipped with the features that round out the experience. 

The backlit controls are displayed in highly visible LCD readouts that are easy to read. And its three-speed, 300-CFM venting system makes sure that you don’t retain any smoke from your stovetop in the cabin.
