Speaking of fuses....why does the fan come on or off intermittently in the fuse box? Is it when shore power is charging the batteries? It's loud but I don't want to throw the disconnect at night..

the fan comes on when the DC current load is above some threshold... this would typically happen if the battery is fairly discharged.

I can't say I ever heard ours come on, but on the 21 its at the far end from the bed. also we have solar, and it seems like the solar keeps the battery fully charged most of the time.

The fan is variable speed and dependent on current as John said. If it is overly loud for any length of time there may be an issue. Especially once you've been plugged in for awhile and the batteries are sufficiently charged it should be quiet. If you are looking for an upgrade with dual variable speed fans that are very quiet consider the Progressive Dynamics 4655L Wildkat main board assembly. There are other benefits as well.
