Tiffin runs two continuous ducts the length of the coach. The starboard side is the supply duct while the portboard side is tyhe return duct. With three A/C units there are 3 remote sensors in the ceiling that are located between the two ducts. The cool air runs from one end of the ceiling to the other. This gives false readings on the sensors so you need to set the thermostat to some really weird settings to get the right temperature. After a while you learn them. Because only half of the ducts are supply, you get lots of cool air on on side of the coach but not so much on the other. The airflow from three units gets pushed through these small diameter ducts at a fairly high velocity. The end result is that you don't hear the A/C units themselves but you do hear the airflow due to it's higher velocity. It's not objectionable but it isn't perfect either.

The Cornerstone was very quiet but uses a different duct system. It used larger square ducts on both sides of the coach which gave better coverage and lowered the airflow velocity. Their thermostat was also accurate although I'm not overly fond of having to go into the mid-bath to access the thermostat, AGS, and other various controls. I like a midship in-wall design, like Winnebago is known for. But Travel Supreme was more concerned with a clean, uncluttered look rather than function so that's what Entegra inherited.

I did notice the A/C unit in the bedroom of the Aspire but didn't run it so can't speak as to how that sounds.
Both our Dutch Stars (2000 and 2002) use the larger square duct work with adjustable vanes in the outlet so the side to side air flow isn't a problem. Our temp sensors are on the wall in each zone so we pretty much get what we set.

Yep, not sure why Entagra boasta a quiet coach, but their AC's ducting (and noise) are from the 1990 travel trailers??? Very poorly done

I think our a/c's do not match the rest of the quality of the anthem. sad!

Seems what Jayco has done, is to take the air conditioner install plans from their $14,000 travel trailers and install them on the Entergra, in that fashion...

Not good at all

Strike one!

I just turn the bedroom one off in my Essex at night. When you get old you loose your hearing anyway. You can still hang meat in mine with just the two out of three running.(when they run). I think they only reason they put three on them because one of them is always out.

When it's 100 degrees outside and everything gets quite, you know your in for trouble.You'll learn to love the sound they make.(when there running)

Get a pair of wireless headphones and listen to the Sat all night. Better than listening HER snore all night.

OH if you want to drown out the AC noise, run a load of wash in your Splendide. You ever hear of stranger noises? And it will rock you to sleep. For at least three hrs.
