31FQSL Maiden Voyage

Picked it up a week ago and headed to Dayton, OH KOA for first weekend out. Hope you get the opportunity to get out with yours as well.

You have mowed and trimmed, for that you are deserving, of which I say, well done. Now, you may go, you and your kind, but you must promise to have fun and be blessed!! Safe travels, my son.

R3Jones the only thing in the back for this trip is a gas grill. This weekend is primarily a systems test session. All is well to this point and we'll bring the bike the next time out.

Definitely getting two ball bearing fans to replace the noisy one in the refrigerator.Also, glad I got the slide supports for under the recliner/couch.

WolfWhistle you are very observant. Thank you for the well wishes. The wife and I are feeling blessed.

Jeff

You know I don't really talk like that

It looks like your unit has a kitchen slide... so it has a fan and its noisy? I might be getting deaf, but I don't think us 24/27/29HFS folks have a fan in the frige.

I have to look your unit up and see the floor plan... not that I will change or can afford a change now.

Yes, with the kitchen slide and lack of roof vent for the refrigerator, they add a second cover higher up on the coach to get the job done. The box fan helps the situation but the factory Dometic fan is quite loud. Googling the issue, I found part numbers for dual bearing computer fans that run quiet. There is a place to mount a second one on the unit so I ordered two. The refrigerator was the only thing lacking this weekend. It didn't cool just right either. I fabricated some sheet ducting to better direct the airflow out the side. Hopefully it will all come together next time out.

Beyond that, I just need some A/C vents that allow me to reduce flow to a given area. As delivered, the factory vents can be rotated but not closed off.

Any chance you could share your information on those 2 fans for the refrigerator? I have the same setup and that factory fan sure is noisy. Thanks!
