Few people have any notion of what a "decibel" (dB) is in terms of actual sound level, or how how to compare dB numbers in a meaningful way. For those that do, having numbers for Fred & non-Fred models may be instructive; for the rest it is just techno-babble. And since there is no non-Fred Serrano, a direct comparison cannot be made. It could, however, be compared to some other brand/model of Fred coach, or to some other front gas coach.

there are also people that can't read a tape measure or house plans..so should I just tell them they will get 2 small bed rooms and one big one??
why couldn't you say

at 55 it's this...and at 65 it's this, seems too easy.
.when I ran the muffler shop people would come in and say , I wanna change my muffler.. I want it louder..... but not too loud...
then when it was done say... that's not loud enough... or that's too loud and want me to change it..

with the db measurement.. it is simple mathamatics
