ELKHART, Ind. – Dometic is issuing a consumer warning that its Brisk Air RV air conditioner and heat pump models appear to have been counterfeited by a Chinese company and are now being sold into the RV industry under the brand name Advent.
Brad Sargent, vice president of marketing at Dometic, said the Advent air conditioner “seems to be purposely made to look like our Brisk Air models at a glance in orderto trick people into thinking it’s the same product.”
Dometic is evaluating its legal options against the Chinese company and the Advent product. In the meantime, Dometic encourages consumers to use caution before purchasing these products.
“Dometic has made a long-term commitment to the industry through its people and operations,” said Doug Whyte, president of Dometic Americas, urging consumers to be wary of products and organizations with no track record behind them.
Dometic has more than 35 years of experience designing and manufacturing air conditioning systems for the RV industry. The company has manufactured more than one million RV air conditioners and has pioneered development of products including heat pumps, dehumidifiers, multiple-zone thermostats and ducted air conditioning systems for RVs.
