Low-profile aerodynamics

The leading low-profile RV air conditioner, the Penguin II Rooftop Air Conditioner is a powerful cooler. With its ultra-low profile, this streamlined rooftop unit is aerodynamically designed to reduce drag when on the move. It also looks fantastic! The high-performance motor and fan deliver powerful cooling performance using a more eco-friendly R410A refrigerant. Despite its compact and lightweight design, features such as the robust rib-reinforced base pan ensure that the Penguin II can handle tough environments for a longer service life.

Assisting NASA with air conditioning expertise

In 2011, NASA was on the lookout for an air conditioning system to install in their lunar electric rover. They decided they needed expert help and consulted numerous suppliers. Finally, after a rigorous selection process, the space agency chose Dometic. “We’ve had a lot of firsts over the years, but this custom job presented special challenges for our engineers,” said a spokesperson for Dometic. After extensive trials in Arizona, where the system had to keep scientists and their equipment cool and dry, our technology is now ready for extra-terrestrial duty.

The Dometic Penguin II Rooftop Air Conditioner features a futuristic look and powerful cooling performance. With a low-profile under 10 in./25.4 cm, the sleek shroud reduces wind resistance while the vehicle is moving. A rib-reinforced base pan delivers lasting strength, while its R410A refrigerant is more eco-friendly and releases heat efficiently. Its high-performance motor and fan deliver a first-class cooling performance. The Penguin II can operate in ducted and non-ducted cooling systems. Non-ducted application requires an Air Distribution Box (available separately). Available in white and black.
