2012 - 2015 Seneca 15000 BTU AC/ Heat pump

Can any members here owning a 2012 to 2015 Seneca able to tell me who the makers of the 15000 BTU Air condition/ Heat pump ????. Could it be by Dometic, Penguin, Colemen or a no name ???. What about the efficiency of the cooling or heating of the Seneca. Has there been many issues or problems like leaks or noise inside or outside ???.

Thank You to all the members replying in advance.

Should be Coleman since that is what JAYCO has traditionally used in all RV lines. That is what was on the original SENECA's (KODIAK chassis).

Our 2015 Seneca says Coleman's Mack on the AC/HP units. They are fairly quiet as roof units go.

Were in the Houston area at the moment and the efficiency seems pretty good on them. Able to keep the coach plenty cool in 90 deg weather.

Thanks Grandpa, I know the earlier Entegra's were using Dometic and switched to Coleman's I believe around 2014 and they where much quieter. So I hope they will continue into 2016 model year when we order ours.

Thanks Grumpy, from Grandpa's reply they are still continuing to use Coleman's. Now I just have to find out the model number to do a bit more research on the reliability on the units.

Thanks richard66, great to hear from another experienced user. The ( 2 ) Colemanís on the AC side sounds like itís efficient for cooling as well as the quietness on the Seneca which makes me happy. Has anyone used the heat pump side of the unit for heating???.

We used the heat pumps last fall and again in the spring. They worked great down to the high 30's and allowed us to save the propane for water heating and cooking.

Thanks for the reply anav8or, we live in Atlantic Canada so there will be times we will be in the colder months before heading south to the warmer climates for the winter. I wanted to conserve on propane as well and only used it for cooking and for the tankless water heater. We are looking at ordering a 2016 Seneca HJ which also has a electric fireplace so while on shore power we should be fine keeping warm.
