We have a rooftop heat pump. The roof is a huge sounding board. The compressor's vibrations are amplified by the roof. No way around it other than a basement unit. In 50 years of RVing, we've learned to appreciate the AC drowning oht campsite noises.

Also if you take the cover off of the unit on roof, look at the tubing coming out of the compressor and make sure its not touching/rubbing against any of the sheet metal. Mine was just touching the sheet metal and made a awful noise. I turned the unit off and let it cool down and bent the tubing just a bit 1/8" with my hands and got it off of the sheet metal, made all the difference in the world. I still have the air noise but the vibration noise is gone.

Remove it and install a portable AC... much quieter, way more efficient and can be ran on a 2K generator easily. Only drawback is you must have an accessible window to vent it through.

About 6 months ago someone posted about fabricating a shroud that incorporated some sound deadening material. It got posted also to irv2.com and rv.net. Do a search.

If one was so inclined, could use a shore power compartment and run a portable exhaust hose into it......then when not using, close the flap.......or, JR Products make compartment boxes of various sizes, with doors......bore the hole size, mount the box using butyl tape.

Mine is ducted, but still loud. I expect it will always be that way. As long as it is cold I'm happy! Lol

I can't leave.

I'm in a pull through site with two 100' pine trees in front of me. Can't make 90 degree left turn when leaving. Camper ain't gonna leave fronterds (Southern for frontwards).

I have to live here forever.
