    FR 3 Noise. Gents, I have read all the comments I could find on here about silencing the horrendous noise of the V10. I'm an 80 year old guy, and yes I wear hearing aids, but even if I take them off, that noise is unbearable for me. My first job is to attack the dog house. I've read many comments about fixing various window, dash, overhead noises as well as mentioning of the dog house. Please tell me what you used on the dog house specifically. I have been to Dynamat's website and they sell so many products, so I don;t want to buy the wrong thing and send it back. Please be as specific as you can. Thanks Guys, I'm knew to the gassers, been a DP fellow for years, but needed to downsize.
    Semper Fi, Jim

    Update 7/5/2021: it's done -- dog house, grill, and floor mats. Can't wait to see if there is a difference.

    Thirty-six year retired Marine. Been "camping" since 1967. Then it changed to "RV-ing" LOL. Have owned them all except classes B and C. Just downsized from DP's to a Gas-er. It's a 2019 FR3 30DS. Can't believe the cheap linoleum, can't get the stains out. Biggest complaint is the location of the rear camera; must literally take my eyes off the road to look at it. That is dangerous. Love the propane hook-up. Haven't figured out what size solar panel I need to plug in for trickle charging the batteries. Get the same mileage I got with a 40'DP, but gas is $.30 - $.50 cheaper than diesel. LOVE the big fridge. Water pressure at kitchen sink sucks. On city and pump all faucets except the kitchen sink are good. It's a trickle! Dealer says it's normal - Horse Hockey! Lots of storage space, but wish they could have found a place to put a sewer compartment like most rigs have. Just need to do work on the upfront noise. Be safe and be careful looking at the rear camera. Semper Fi!
