Dometic B2200 air conditioning

My 2008 Kon-tiki low line, as featured at the start of this blog, was fitted with a Dometic B2200 air conditioning system. At the time of ordering the replacement van – a 2012 model – I did n’t order the air-con. Instead, I had decided to wait and see how motorhome touring overseas was, without the air con system. Anyway, and as usual, I changed my mind. Last week, a few modifications done to the Kon-tiki, with the Dometic B2200 system being one of them!

Dometic B2200 air conditioning – heating and cooling

The Dometic B2200 air conditioning unit is dual purpose in so far as the system can be used for cooling but can also provide a gentle heat too. The internal fitting also has four “moonlight” down lighters that cast a gentle – (and romantic!) – glow over the interior of the motorhome. The instruction manual for the Dometic B2200 claims the unit operates at approximately five amperes.Consequently, this should be quite usable on many a continental campsite. The previous much-loved and owned Kontiki had the same air con system. This was used on many low amperage campsites without an issue.

I find it better, in hot weather to leave the air con running constantly on the low fan speed setting. This setting was not only quiet, but could maintain a cool temperature within the ‘camping car’. I feel it is preferable to a short blast at full speed.

The Dometic B2200 air conditioning unit retails at about £1600.00 plus fitting. However, for those hoping to undertake continental touring then the system may be a natural choice.
