Hi all, My question is, are all base RV units built with "loud and louder" AC and furnace blowers? Should we look for anything besides Dometic or Coleman brands in a used 5er? To narrow this down, our 31 foot trailer with roof unit and ducts was very loud and woke us both up at night. We were not living in it full time, and was only occasional use. Now our unit has been totaled by hurricane Mike and we are getting serious about a used fifth wheel purchase and possible full time use. I am pretty sure we will be forced to change the factory units out if we can't stand the noise. I have done some light searching of fifth wheel topics this morning, related to this subject. I see much has been discussed previously so please add any relevant links to said discussions. I have contacted some of you who have units for sale, thank you for your responses.
My 8kw Onan Diesel generator has been working fine, when I push the pre-heat switch it goes "tickety-tickety" and after about 15 seconds fires right up. This week while running it, it started to emit more of a "clunking" sound, very rythmic and regular (and pretty loud). I shut it down, today checked the oil level (clean and full) and when I pushed the Preheat button again to try staring, this time it gave off the "clunking" sound instead of the quiet purr of the normal "tickety-tickety". Any ideas on what might be the problem? I didn't leave the preheat button pushed long enough to try to start it for fear the clunking was ruining something. Thanks in advance for any ideas / input
