I just got my palazzo and when I set the A.C I put the fan on high and said something about how loud it was and it run's all the time , the tec, then told me to put the fan on " au " auto and then when the coach reaches temp, that is set the fan's will turn off. So you will get some quite time when A.C is not running but once it kick's on it's like a jet

Or you can put the fan on low and have a constant not so loud noise. What we do is try and use the AC in the bedroom if we are in the living room & the AC in the living room if we are in the bedroom. Either way yes they are loud!!!

Challenger, that is what I did 4 days last weekend. Run unit opposite of your position but open vents above you and close the vents on operating end. It will send air down to you.

Yes close the vent on the unit that you are running. That send all the air down the runs. We generally don't close the little round ones. I guess closing the ones opposite of where your at would help too

I pulled into my camp site and was running both Ac units to cool the coach. Have learned to use the bedroom Ac when we are up front and the front ac when we go to bed. Can't believe how loud these units are and thought there might be something wrong. From your responses, it appears they are all loud. Thanks for the responses.

remember if you open the vents on the ac units the ducks do not get air.

According to Thor's tech the AC units are loud and there isn't anything that can be done to quiet them.

This is my 3rd RV. They have all been the same. LOUD. maybe a basement AC not be so loud. But then I'll have to spend more $$$ and probably never like the overall coach as well.

I suspect that they are mounted without any isolation material thus turning the whole roof into a giant sounding board. There are plenty of other noises to get used to so that I can discern between normal and abnormal.

While parked and nothing being used, the water pump will occasionally come on for a brief period and I will hear about five clicks. Is this normal or do I have a minor leak?

If you do not see any water dripping to the ground my guess would be the ice maker. With everything off where I can hear I do hear the water pump go on after I hear ice fall from the ice maker...just a guess?

With the AC running I have chased and fixed several loose things that contribute to the noise. I have also read that the rubber gasket between the unit and the roof could be substandard and if replaced helps with the vibration but the fan noise is still loud.

I set the fan to "low" and let run and let the compressor just cycle as needed. I do like others and switch between bedroom and living room units depending where we are at the moment.

These AC units are not ant louder then my last RV...it is what it is
