rPod 178 A/C & Heater

What can be done to quiet down the loud noises these make while they are running?
What is the cause of these noises?

The cause of the noises is the fan. I don't think there is anything you can do to make them quieter. If we have shore power, we use a small ceramic heater. If not, it's a guaranteed "dog on the bed" night because the noise frightens him.

With the A/C, the best you can do is set the fan to "always on". It's the sound of it going on and off that is most disturbing. I suspect that most of the RVs use the same heater and A/C and that the noise is not peculiar to the r-pod.

Good thoughts
I thought of adding a blower-less propane heater.
A/C noise: is when the compressor is running.
