2015 27RLWS Loud AC

Is it normal for the AC to be so noisy? Compared to 3 other TT we've owned, we have never heard so much noise coming from the AC before. You can't even carry on a conversation and after awhile you just want it off. We have tried shutting off all but one slider vent on the sides & front, but the unit itself is so annoyingly loud. Any comments please.

The slider vents are meant to be opened only when the main area of the camper has to be cooled down rapidly, e.g. when you first arrive at the campground after driving for 8 hours in 95 deg.F weather.

Other than that they should be closed and you would find that the noise goes down significantly as the air is then forced through the ductwork.

As I type this to you I am sitting at the dinette with the TV on and can talk to my wife who is by the stove. All at normal levels. Of course it is quieter with the AC off but even with it on it is a heck of a lot quieter than my non-ducted 13.5k BTU unit in my previous small hybrid. This RV has a 15k BTU unit if that makes a difference in the noise level (I am not sure but thought I'd mention it).

Thank you so much for your helpful information. We were given a 10 min. max walk through when we purchased the trailer. Did not know about closing the vents. We will give it a try when we go camping next week end. Again, thanks.

Oh they are great to cool down the TT when you get there but absolutely shut those baby's before it drives you crazy.
