Thank you

I will do some research, thank you. We are new at this. We need all the help we can get.
Loving our V-Lite. I feel like a kid again!

Do you have a residential fridge or dual gas/electric? If you have a residential fridge most likely you have an inverter. Residential refrigerators are becoming more and more popular in travel trailers.

If the fan noise is coming from the converter it would be obviously coming from the converter. The converter should always be accessable for fuse replacement. My guess is that someone installed a fan on the frig coils that is thermostatically controlled. I installed two on our last TT and it helped a lot on warm days to keep the frig temp down. In the cool evenings the fans where not needed and could be shut off.

If any one has an idea of how to change it out, we would be interested. It does have a pitch to it that is annoying to my ears.
Do as Grayfox said, but it is easy to change the fan or fans out. Your right they look like the computer fan, you can find them on ebay but make sure you get the ball bearing ones. I use to hear the fan run all the time, but now that problem is over, when a refer is in a slide it builds more heat then a unit with a roof top vent....

There may actually be an inverter installed behind the stereo. If you have a tv that is 120 volt only the only way it would work, if you are not hooked up, is through an inverter.

Fridge Fan

When I first bought my 355RE, fan in fridge bay made annoying noise.
I bought larger fan after researching online and replaced the factory unit.
Results were wonderful, much quieter with more air flow.
Also, old fan seemed to be poorly mounted which magnified noise.
I remounted new fan to better position this cured circulation and excessive noise problem.
Regards,
