A/C Fan Always On Option?

My wife finds that A/Cís that turn off the fan as well as the compressor wake her whenever they cycle on again. She prefers A/Cís that have a fan always on option. Does the stock Escape 21 A/C have that option? If not, are there any other 11k BTU A/Cís out there that do that would fit the trailer? And what noise reduction kits are available (I see that there is one for the Coleman Mach 8ís)?

If you set the thermostat low enough, the fan will stay on and the compressor will cycle on and off, continuously, as it will never reach the shut off point. ... is that what you want?

I'm like your wife, I leave the A/C on low fan, the fan stays running but of course the compressor cycles. If you put it on auto you get both cycling.

On edit, I have the digital wall control, don't know about the ones without if they are still an option.

Well I'm not looking for the A/C to reach maximum cold, just not turn the fan on and off. It sounds like the digital thermometer has a "Fan On / Auto" option.

Yes, you can operate manual, like Bob says.

Is it common to run the A/C at night? On the few occasions we have used it we always shut it down before we hit the sack and rely on the MaxxFan and a cracked window or two.

The digital thermostats will leave the fan running continuously on low or high. On auto the fan only runs when the compressor cycles on.
I can sleep when the fan is on low, but high is a little too loud for me.

Most of the times I've used it I needed it at night too, actually more so then during the day. I like it cool when I go to bed. A lot may depend on the humidity, which we have plenty of on the east coast.
