Converter/charger

Your problem is in the converter/ Charger!
When the charger is charging the battery or supply the 12 volt to your TT.
The converter transformer make that noize also they add ferite beads to the diodes and that can also vibrate and make the noize .
It can be fix by an electronic tech. Not a big job!

I've noticed my 2015 Salem CruiseLite has a hum coming from the fuse box area but only when more than one light is turned on.

Sounds like the converter fan / bearing noise.
Replace Fan.

I know that it's not an exhaust fan it comes from the fuse panel. It will run a little then stop. I hope it's not a bad converter already. Waiting on Forest River to answer. Anyone have this problem too?
Thanks everyone for your feedback on this issue. Sounds like everyone has the same conclusions about the noise. I just don't want to be stranded with no electricity lol. All the dealers are booked up till July 10 I have another issue the brakes so I have a quick stop in and they will look at it. Safety first so hopefully they can hear the fan and fix it or order one. Thanks more to follow

The reason is it has to convert the 110 shore power (or 30 or 50 amps) down to 12-volts which is what most things the camper runs on.
Thanks for your feedback that's what dealer told me today.
