Loud Furnace Wildwood Grand Lodge 408LOFT

Hi Everyone,

Had our first overnight stay in the 2014 Wildwood Grand Lodge 408LOFT last night. It's a great camper, and a big upgrade from our 2007 Rockwood 8318SS!

In the 408LOFT, the furnace is located in the master bedroom. When it kicked in during the night, it woke the wife and I up pretty darn quick! Sounded like we were in a wind tunnel. Maybe it's something we will eventually get used to, but was wondering if anyone else feels the same about the noise, and if there is anything that can be done about it, such as a variable blower setting, adding sound proofing insulation, etc...

Thanks!

Blower is loud especially in the middle of no-where, where it extra quiet. We us a small electric when we have hook-ups and its fairly quiet.
We love quiet too

We have a 408 lodge and also love it. The biggest thing if I could change it would be to not have the blower in the bedroom.

Sounds like a major design flaw.
