Noise coming from the back

Ok, let me try to explain, we notice a noise kind of like what a drill makes maybe a winning sound.
It starting at night and last anywhere from a 2-3 seconds to 10 and can start and stop maybe 5-6 times a night and during the day as well but since we are not in the coach in the daytime we don't notice it.
Wife thinks it sounds like the auto levelers but of course the coach doesn't move.
I try to run outside when it starts but it stops before i even get out the door.


Any thoughts ?

Could be the converter/charger cooling fan kicking on and off.

The converter is typically installed in the lower section of the breaker/fuse panel.

Not the Fan

I don't have a fan at the converter so that is not it.

It is not the water pump either I no the sound, it is some type of electric motor.

Well, this is probably a long shot and doesn't actually fit the description except for the sound, "...kind of like what a drill makes maybe a winning sound.".

If this is a gas rig, perhaps the fuel pump is starting to go? Although even that doesn't quite fit as most times it's a continuous whine.

I'll be standing by to see what the issue actually is. And if I'm right do I win SaddleSore's Foretravel?

Another thought - the inverter, if it is not the converter. The converter puts out 12 volts to run the rig and charge the batteries. The inverter does the opposite to run tv, perhaps the frig, etc. It would be helpful to know what year and model you have.

Do you have a tankless water heater? It will keep HOT water coursing thru the system so it comes on and off to do that. It is a pump so it would have/make the kind of noise you describe. In my 19 Navion, the tankless unit has an energy saving position. It will cycle the pump less often based on temperatures.

Check it out.

No Tankless water Heater

No Tankless water heater, why would the fuel pump run when the RV is off?

Does the inverter make that kind of noise? I have never heard this before.

Thanks for all the ideas, please keep them coming.

I think twinboat has it right. Your converter fan bearing is worn out. So where is it you ask? From the looks of the 3d drawing, it appears to be under the stove, behind the control center. You should be able to get to it by removing the panel under the stove with the vents. There may be a drawer directly under the stove (I can't tell from the drawing) If there is, and you remove it, you may be able to look down and see it if they didn't blank it off. However, Winnebago has a tendency to hide things. Good luck getting to it.

Note - you cannot see the converter fan without getting in there.

Attached is a photo of the drawing showing the placement of the converter behind the breaker panel. That may be the other way to get to it if you can't access it from under the stove.
