Noisy Dometic Air Conditioners

Unfortunately I have a 2013 with the noisy air conditioners. Has anybody considered or changed the Dometic A/C for a quieter brand??

Phil,
I made 3 of these to muffle the air turbulence behind the trim panel air outlet. They are held on by 6 rare earth magnets and the wood (painted white to match) panel has a layer of felt cloth to seal better. They do make a big difference and I can still use the air outlet for quick cool down if needed. Precision Paint has an option also for a wood stain panel that covers the whole trim panel but basically does the same thing but you can no longer use the air outlet. Also since you have the same year Aspire and floor plan, this mod gave me more storage under the propane tank and was just a couple of hours work adding a floor to the bay.

Not sure the floor in the propane bay is safe. Propane is heavier then air and in the event of a leak the gas would not drop out of the coach but would be trapped in the floored compartment. Pretty sure this is why they dont come with a floor from the factory.

Thanks for the concern. It's not fully enclosed for that reason. The picture doesn't show it very well.
