A/C Silencer From Wacko Products, 2 Thumbs Up

I installed the A/C silencer on my noisy A/C in this small 25 foot B+ and I have to give this company 2 thumbs up.
[ note I do have a central A/C systems with vents though out ]

It did everything they said it would, I had 62-66 sound decibels before install and now 52-56 sound decibels after install and no more high pitch or wind sound, its a soft low sound that does not compete with the TV or disturb sleep.

I did take the opportunity to fill in any gaps with expanding foam and gorilla tape around the vents inside A/C before installing the unit, when RV makers install the A/C units its always sloppy and they leave to many gaps and holes where it should not be, it now cools even better but best of all its so much quieter, sounds like a high end A/C unit..

Thanks WackO Products, 2 Thumbs Up..

I give the RV manufactures 4 thumbs down! They duct the AC output and put a hole in the ceiling leaving the fan and compressor noise direct access to the living area. Brilliant!

Not only that, what gets the most sun load?? Yup, the roof! Poorly insulated a/c ducts in the roof cavity reduce the btu's. Rv's still using old technology they need to go the "mini-split systems, higher efficiency, less amp draw.

Yep I would agree on RV manufactures A/C and vent install is sub standard, the electric lines and thermostat line going to A/C unit had two 1 inch holes for such little wires, I stuffed in insulation and filled with expanding foam and the air discharge side leaked into the return side and gorilla taped that up and now the A/C cools better.

I wonder what my whole roof insulation looks like ?
