The Dometic (not Domestic) is an evaporation fridge that has no moving parts. If you are running it on propane, you might be able to hear the burner. Running on electricity, it should be essentially silent.

X's 2 I can't hear mine on propane and it don't work on electric so can't help with that part. I keep a temp gauge in the fridge and look at that every time I go into the fridge
So far so good, Going on 6 years.

The only time that any sound would happen with electricity is if your fridge is
mounted in a slide.

Since no chimney can be used, fridges on slides have a side mounted vent that requires a 110 volt fan pointed upward cooling the coils. And it does make a slight noise.

You wouldn't believe how much heat a RV refrigerator puts out. Without the chimney, that heat's got to be forced out.
