Noise...a/c. — heat pump. - generator

Just got home with our new -2017. SUNSEEKER 2400W—-MBS
Pulled into our parking space...plugged in...enter rv...get thermostat set...
Sat down, attempt to converse, read Manuel’s, etc...like camping at home!

This equipment is very loud. How do you talk, listen to tv...etc??
We had purchased, from FL...sound boards that were supposed to reduce the noise level...cost $400...didn’t do much in our 378 class A Georgetown.

I don’t like hot/humid...or noise. My heart is sinking.

HOW DO YOU HANDLE THE NOISE WHEN IT RUNS CONSTANTLY ...

I don't have that problem in my 2017 Sunseeker 2250. I'm not sure the AC manufacture but there is no heat pump. We have no trouble with the noise of the AC or furnace. The generator basically sounds like the coach motor is running. The only time I have run the generator is for its monthly run under load since we are always hooked up, either at home or at the park.

I suppose if I had the generator and the AC running at the same time the noise could get to me over time. Nothing that would interfere with conversation or TV watching though.

Is it just the AC that is running?

Ours has a "dump mode" and when that register is open it just dumps the cold air straight down from the AC unit. If we close that register off the air is redirected to the other ducts in the ceiling throughout the coach. It is much quieter with the air going through the ducts and not in the dump mode.

That is what sound board was supposed to do...
You removed original vent cover
Blocked the dump...with a piece of sheet metal...

The sound board had an opening on each end...

Cover is soft white material to match ceiling.

Don’t know what type of A/C you have but if it’s a BriskAir II, they are LOUD. My new coach has the Atwood w/heatpump and it is super quiet.

I’m a rookie...how does your rig compare to mine.

Could my unit be traded out?

Mine is a little bigger on an E450 chassis. Yours is a sprinter. The floor plan is not that different but 4 slide outs really change the useability.

Yes, you can swap out A/C units but the bottom end (the control box and thermostat) must be compatible or you will need both. You may just have a bad
squirrel cage which would warrant a dealer visit.

I’ll call my dealer in AM...and see what he says,

We are definitely...concerned right now. We will not be able to tolerate the noise as is...

We just picked up rig today.

Thanks ...
