Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Poor construction

DinoDog2022 6/20/2022

First off it wasn't until I clean the vent where I found the air conditioner information and product registration card. Secondly he holes where the dials go are cut too close where the knob falls off when you turn it. Third the one vent that points Towards the bed Lowe's minimum airflow and cannot be adjusted

Performs acceptably, but…

gsb1 10/24/2021

This unit cools the RV travel trailer it is installed in acceptably. It does tend to quick cool, i.e. it lowers the room temperature to desired temperature very fast but it could perform better at humidity removal which is also equally important function of comfort when the outside weather is hot and humid. It would also be nice if the unit would have the option of being able to add a heating strip in the unit, however the RV dealership indicated that is not an option with this model.

Reasonably quiet and cools the RV fairly quickly

Paul R N 9/14/2021

This is a roof mounted unit with the controls on the unit. We have only had the Trailer for a couple of days and only really used it once, but It seems reasonably quiet and cooled the trailer fairly quickly. I can't report on durability yet, but it is a GE product so I am hopeful.

Great Performance - Needs "Easy Start" Option

CaptainRich 8/6/2021

The A/C does a great job of cooling our RV. An improvement would be to offer an "Easy Start" module option (built-in) to reduce starting current for (2) A/C's from 50-Amps to 30-Amps, which is much more common at RV parks.

Ssv2021 7/31/2021

Came with our Little Guy Mini Max RV. Cools off in a couple minutes. Great! Nice vent options. It IS quite loud in such a small space but we're getting used to it (and I'm quite sensitive to sound). Having trouble getting consistent performance with GE Thermostat that came with it. Setting at 83…sometimes has kept running too long and reaching much cooler temp even set on auto.

When the unit works it works well for 2 hours then freezes up. seems the thermostat doesn't work unless at the coldest setting, the temps on the thermostat very coils , air coming out are way off. the unit is only a few months old.

Going deaf in this thing2 6/10/2021

I've never heard a unit so loud in a camper and yet so quit outside it definitely leaves you think why?and then I think to myself well how do I fix this..........it's so dang loud inside the camper we prefer to just text cause you can't hear what either one of you are saying.....it's actually louder than the generator running which is crazy....not sure if it just this unit or what but my older camper's ac was no where near this loud

TitusvilleTim 5/31/2021

Came on my new Travel Trailer; I didn't even know GE made these kind of units. Need to find out if this has a low draw, "soft start" built in, or I need to add one to the unit to minimize portable generator draw on startup. Unfortunately, although it is a brand new unit, there isn't even any documentation for the A/C... not GEs fault, but probably the builder Left it out of the envelope??? Not sure how to get my question answered.
