If someone's rig is acting unusual I will ask the owner a question. Ac units or heat pumps are not normally that loud so I would have asked if they were having a problem.
They may not know they are being loud and you comments may help. Glampgrounds are close quarters and we all need to be aware of others.

There is a possibility that one of the two people is on medication. My wife is on a drug that causes her to feel hot all the time. She freezes me out in the car and at home.

Gordon, you hit it on the head as usual.

I also would have said something. Just depending on how the conversation went. "So the rig is new to you, did you have the AC's checked because they sound like something may be wrong. I have never heard one that loud before." They may have "hearing problems" and not really hear it. Could help them by mentioning it.

If they get ticked, like others said, you have wheels on yours and can leave. I also have ear plugs in our rig just in case I get by a train track. My husband's hearing will keep him from being disturbed.

Ok pcurt, or anyone else, don't take this seriously but, should that apply if the offensive noise is the other campers wife?

Sorry, just had to laugh a little this morning, back to being serious!

Warning, take my advice and comments with caution!

Noise used to be common with low rent/high density housing. Now we have noise in high rent/high density. Bummer.......

Karen & Gary,
Sorry your stay is not going as planned, I would not say anything unless it's a hazard. Your neighbors intention is not to disturb you, their camping as best they can, and there is nothing that will come from it but hurt feelings and bad camping spread all around. We've been through a lot of different experiences with camping neighbors, their kids in our camp, their dogs in our camp, dogs that constantly bark, we've had people set up their tent in our camp. It's all small stuff and we don't take away from the short life experience by becoming the issue. If it's more than you can take, move to a different campground, be careful in your choice, the next one could be worse.

I'm the same way. As far as the AC noise problem goes - my bet is that the guy doesn't even realize that it's louder than those around him. We were in a KOA up in Petosky, MI last year ... had all three ACs running (temps were in the high 80's). I happened to be outside when the guy across the road behind me (one the "just nosy and forward enough to start a conversation" types like me! ) - stopped by and asked if I had noticed that one of the three AC sounded "different" and louder than the others. Truth was, I hadn't ... but now that he had mentioned it - I realized he was right. He ended hanging out, having a beer, and helping me isolate which unit was having the issue - and which setting of the AC controls produced it.

Since the coach was going in for some routine maintenance upon return from that trip - I had the AC looked at as well. Turned out to be something simple ... and easily fixed.

Being relatively new to RVing ... I appreciated the guy mentioning it ... and chalked the whole thing up as yet another learning experience. As a "techie" in my day gig - I find that the "rig talk" that's ever present amongst guys at any RV park to be enjoyable. I can't help but think that except for the rare individual who's a total social klutz - that starting/being part of any "rig talk" conversation would turn out to be a problem.

My guess......since the OP didn't appear to know what heat pumps are, they have been surprised to hear A/C units running during cold weather. Again.....my guess would be that if it was 95 degrees out and everyone was running their A/C units, the OP wouldn't have an issue. Now that they've heard the units running, they've laser locked onto it and can't get it out of their head.

We were camped at the Grand Canyon last week and forced to take a site we pulled forward into. Late one night, a rental arrived and rather than pull all the way into their site, they parked with their propane heater directly next to our bedroom. I thought my wife was going to kill someone after an hour of listening to the drone of their propane heater. We were running our electric heaters so there was no noise, but since it was a rental, I doubt they had anything other than the propane heater. Once my wife locked onto the noise, she couldn't get to sleep. Luckily, they left the next day and we changed to a back in site.

The OP (me) doesn't care which it was. It was LOUD. I already said it ate into our brains so yeah, we zeroed in on it.

The question I asked was "Would you say anything?" We didn't and we didn't move. We ignored it as best we could but it's difficult to turn off one's ears!

If we're ever in similar situation, we may respectively and cautiously mention the noise in a friendly neighborly way.

Agreed. Basically you have three choices:

- say something (we would do this first)
- endure it
- move

Just because it has three ACs and is a tag axle does not mean it's "high end"...it means it's long and has three ACs. I agree with:

Say something, endure it or move. They are really your only options.

Didn't mention it was a tag but it was.

Maybe your idea of a "high end" motor home is different from mine, but the new ones have prices upwards of $600,000.

This one was used but no matter if it was a low end gasser or the most expensive motor home built or if it was a heat pump or A/C or anything else, it was still been loud!

We opted to endure.

I would start off by saying "maybe it's me, but that ac unit doesn't sound right. How about we take a look at it" who knows maybe you make a new friend
