    Converter Hum

    Anyone have and issue with the converter humming? Not fan noise but a constant loud hum when hooked up to shore power.

    Thanks, Dave

    No, Never heard any humming. Only the fan kicking in once in a while.

    No. My converter knows the words, so it doesn't hum. Just kidding. Mine does not hum.

    Speaking of converter...can't seem to find ours. Can anyone tell me where it might be???? We just bought a 2015 Solitude 369 & the PDI at the dealership sucked royally so we are having to figure everything out on our own. We can't seem to get a call back now that we've signed the papers. I just hope I can keep my Southern Lady etiquette and not have to show my inner Coonass. LOL

    Mine hums. Its loud enough it gets my attention once in awhile. It's not just when the fan runs. Old trailer was silent except for once in a great while you would hear a fan.

    I believe it's in the basement (main storage compartment) behind one of the bulkheads. BTW, I think you may have to unleash the "inner Coonass" on your dealer if they don't respond in a helpful way.

    Thank you very much for your response. Much appreciated. You might be reading about me in the papers if I show my inner
    Coonass. LOL

    Well it's been a while but ....... After letting my trailer sit in the dealers service center for two weeks the service writer said there was a definite noise but 2 or 3 "technicians" couldn't agree on what it was. I picked it up, took it home, removed the divider from the storage to the under floor, plugged into 120 and the surge protecter was the culprit. So much for Dealer expertise!
