RE: AC Noise

I did a quick test this weekend. I took off the plastic vent cover on the ceiling and press a piece of foam over the outflow of air. This forced all the air through the ceiling vents. It cut the noise at least 50%, it was amazing. Now I need to figure out a way of creating a decorative cover as fpresto mentions above and installing it into the ceiling with a large piece of foam to absorb the noise. Anyone ever done this before ?

RE: AC Noise

Here is the feedback I received from another forum: we recently had the plastic inside air conditioner vents (covers) replaced with a decorative, upholstered cover. they sealed (taped) off the air outflow portion with an A/C vent material that looked like a metallic piece of cardboard. that out flow air is now forced through the various round A/C vents throughout the cabin. This significantly reduced the noise level inside the RV. Anyone ever done this before ?

RE: Adding a 3rd AC Unit

You are correct tropical. The cord will connect to a 20 amp breaker before it connects to the 30a power at the pedestal.

RE: AC Noise

RE: Adding a 3rd AC Unit

Update: Had the AC guy out and talked to Customer Service at Mandalay. The washer wiring gauge will not handle the AC as it is a 15a circuit. The EMS in the RV will not be able to balance the load and would require an upgrade (per Mandalay) even if I add a 20A breaker and circuit. I will add the AC, and run a wire on the roof down to a 20A breaker box and then a cord to the 30A pedestal connection. So I will have the AC working only when parked.

RE: Adding a 3rd AC Unit

Good feedback. The reason I wanted to add a seperate line to connect the 3rd AC unit to a 30 amp when parked using shorepower, is because I did not want to overload the coach circuits. Last year I had 2 roof ac's and 1 portable ac running, along with fridge, and other items,(no hairdryer or oven, just normal stuff) and the 50 amp protection box tripped and shut off all power to the RV. So I think I was drawing to many amps and it shut down. With the 3rd AC going to the 30 amp connection I remove the amps this unit draws through the coach circuits. Make sense ?

RE: AC Noise

Nothing is wrong with the unit, it is new and it is just wind noise. I can't have a phone conversation without the other person asking if I am driving in my car.

AC Noise

I would like to make a change to my AC units so they are not so noisey. I have heard that the noise comes from obstructions in the air flow. I have also heard of people redoing the ceiling vents so that one side in input and the other is output and this eliminated the noise. Anyone fixed this before ?

Adding a 3rd AC Unit

I have 2 AC's on my RV currently and I spend a lot of time in the Southwest where it can get to 110 120. 2 AC's won't cut it so I have decided to add a 3rd unit. I welcome your experience and comments on my plan. I will mount the 3rd unit where my kitchen vent is located. Run a wire to my current thermostat for control Run AC power from the unit to the rear of my RV, in the closet area where my washing machine used to be. I will add a breaker in line, and connect to the 120v outlet in the closet. I will also run another AC line from that closet out to my electrical bay, so I can connect the 3rd unit directly to a 30 Amp shore power seperate from the rest of the RV, which would be connected to the 50 amp service. I hope to accomplish the following: When going down the road with the genny on I can run both front AC units and the 3rd will be plugged into the washer circuit. When parked I can run all 3 units with the 3rd unit plugged into 30 amp at the pedestal and the rest of the RV to the 50 amp. This way I won't overload the RV's electrical system. In the end I will have 3 15000 BTU Dometic units that I can run off shore power, and 2 15,000 btu units i cn run off genny power (7500 w Onan). Have I thought of everything ?

RE: Broken Drawer sliders DRIVING ME CRAZY !

So the Plastic piece is L shaped. it screws in to the wall at one end and the other end goes into the metal slider the drawers rolls back and forth on. So I cant attach the metal slider to the wall, it is not long enough.

Broken Drawer sliders DRIVING ME CRAZY !

My drawers in the kitchen and bedroom slide on metal in and out. They connect to the wall using a piece of plastic. This plastic part breaks every 6 months or so and the drawers are all cockeyed. I have replaced these &*%$ things for 10 yrs and I am sick of it. HELP ME, what can I use to stop this problem ? Don't tell me to replace the cabinets, not in the budget. Thanks

RE: Pioneer GPS/Radio Replacement

I finally completed the solution. I purchased a Pioneer 5700 radio/cd/dvd/sat radio/with ipod connection and had it installed. It also has an input for a backup camera, which I did not need as I already have a backup camera. I have a 9 inch tablet that I have loaded Delorme SW on and will use this for my GPS. Cost me $550 for the work, life is good. JCat

RE: Replacing RV fridge with Residential Fridge

I spend most of my time in campgrounds with full hookups. When I travel I can run my genny to keep it cool until I arrive.

Replacing RV fridge with Residential Fridge

My RV fridge has been dead for a week now. The cooling unit is bad. I was going to get a Dometic replacement, but the price is $3000 at camping world. Today I was at Home depot and they had a nice 10 cu ft stainless fridge for $400 on sale, which will fit my current opening in my RV. So basically I can buy 7 residential fridges for the price of 1 RV fridge, complete nonsense. Anyway I have a couple of questions about the residential fridge. 1. How does it get secured to the RV during installation ? 2. How can I lock the doors when I travel down the road ? 3. How do I secure the items in the fridge from flying off the their shelves when traveling ? (tension bars) Thanks for the help.

RE: Dometic Fridge not cooling

Looks like the cooling unit is bad, so I will be ordering a Dometic RM1350MIMSS. Wow what sticker shock $3000 to $3600 for a fridge not including install !
