When shopping for a trailer make sure the A/C is ducted. Our previous trailer, a Rockwood Mini-Lite didn't have ducted A/C and it was LOUD. Our Wildwood's A/C is ducted into the ceiling and in comparison to the Mini-Lite is quiet. Not quite as quiet as our home A/C but not a lot noisier either. It's worth the few dollars more to get it.

Yes it's a constant drone. Doesn't sound like anything is wrong with the fan. Just overall a loud running unit. I have a couple of follow up questions for you all. What temperature should the air coming out of the unit be? So I can get an idea if it is operating properly. Also, understanding the construction of campers, is it normal for the unit to almost never shut off when the outdoor temperature reaches around 80? Is this just the way it is with a camper due to the lack of insulation or should I get a bigger or second unit to gain better efficiency? Keeping in mind the unit is parked in full sun.

The delta-T (difference between intake and return) should be about 15F or so.

It's normal for the A/C to run full time once the outside temp gets above 80F.

Adding a second A/C will certinly help, especially since you're in full sun.

We have the same A/C in our 282RK and you definitely have to have the TV volume up when it is running. I just figured this was normal.

"Ditto" in our similar Hemi 272, louder than the 15K in our Heartland. But hey, it will keep it cool, but does run constantly when temps are in high 80s.
