    Yes. It resonates through the slide out. Not just yours. Our service guys loosened and re-tightened, but no change.

    Yes, it's loud. Is it because it's located so low?

    Have you checked to see if it was set to "dump"? This dumps the cooled air, out a set of louvers (on the bottom of the unit) into the room. This aids in faster cooling. You can shut the louvers and it quiets the AC some.

    There is an easy way to have quiet bedroom A/C......don't use it.

    You are within inches of the ceiling in the bedroom, and yes, they do still have a compressor that vibrates when it is running.

    I have the exact same thing in my Columbus, and all other 5th wheels as well.

    I have the louvers open in our bedroom air conditioner. What I did to help is that I have a two zone thermostat and I set the living room at 70 degrees and the bedroom at 72 degrees. The only time the air in the bedroom comes on is during the hotest part of the day and it never comes on at night. The living room air blows through the vents in the bedroom and keeps it cool enough at night that the unit in the bedroom does not have to come on. We still have to sleep under the covers, so it is plenty cool enough for us. Hope this helps someone relieve some of the noise issues you are experiencing.

    Oh that's interesting. So it looks like the ducts are continuous and both A/Cs feed into them.
