Thanks for the directions. Have not had time to do anything as yet but I do understand and am aware of the 6 screws. Hopefully I will get time to look at it this afternoon.
Thanks very much for the assistance.

I had return covers off both units. Lotsa cold air in the return plenum. Didn't remove the bottom plate yet, but will next weekend (left the coach in Reno for the short week & back to Auburn via toad).
What I did find was a massive jumble of wiring stuffed wherever it would get out of the way long enough to slap the cover on. Airflow will always generate noise, but turbulent airflow (i.e. has to scramble itself around sharp corners & obstacles) makes more. I snipped at least 6 feet of braided ground wire off & made a shorter ground pigtail. That's 6 feet less coiled up wire for the airflow to fight. Some zip ties and maybe a tie-back or two should clear the return air path some. I'm gunna take some noise readings to see if any of my fussing is worth the effort.

....coach shouldn't be colder than 78 degrees....use electric fans to bring the ''feeling'' temp down 6 more degrees by moving the air over your skin and it will feel cooler because of evaporation....increase air flow if you are still hot and decrease coach temp if you still feel "clammy"so the a/c will take more moisture out of air....open your bath room vent to shower and cook foods outside.....geofkaye

The air should be delivered to the coach before it returns to the AC unit. This has nothing to do with the temp in the coach.
