Air conditioner noise

The ac in pretty much every rv we've ever used is "noisy". They're all roof mounted, so the vibration travels. I  don't think the ac in the oliver is any noisier than it is in the rvs we deliver to alaska. Though the location of the ac, over the bed, may make it seem so.

Some people call it good white noise for sleeping. We rarely use ac, as we don't camp where we have electricity to run it. The furnace is more important to me than ac. 🙃

We swapped out our Dometic noise maker for an Atwood (now also Dometic) Air Command heat pump in our Sprinter based motorhome.  Best $800 we ever spent on the MH.  I did the install myself.  The Atwood is very quiet (especially on low), draws less amps and cools better than it's BTU rating implies. Unfortunately, it is a bit tall of a unit and I believe Dometic is slowly killing off the line.  It is no longer available in a white, ductless 15k heat pump model - or we would be installing one on our soon-to-be Oliver.
