Unless it is ducted like in some of the large motor coaches it is going to be noisy regardless of the brand. The differance between brands is really minimal. We have had the Mach, Carrier, Polar Cub, a previous Dometic and the current Dometic and they are all noisy.

Holy Bat Crap! I near melted at the mention of those temps. You have wheels on that thing Steve, drag it a little further north during those temps.

I definitely have plans for traveling through the Southern US in the future, but will definitely be planning on doing so at the coolest point of the year.

It's a Dometic stat made for that unit. Our unit has no controls on it. Everything is controlled from the thermostat.

While most of you are covering you Escapes for the winter, our best local months of camping are just ahead. We have two weather patterns...hot & humid and not so hot!

We have four seasons nearly winter, winter, still winter, and a couple months of nice (to us) weather.

My wife asked me to take a picture of our digital thermometer outside in the shade...it still got a little hotter!

If it makes you feel any better, these things are usually still loud even with ducted output, because the unit is still sitting in the same hole right over you in the ceiling. Some motorhomes have the unit mounted in the basement (and ducted on both output and return) - I expect that those are less noisy.

Winnebago previously mounted their TrueAir Residential Central AC in the basement, but this isn't a reason to envy Winnebago owners because we don't have a basement... they now put it on the roof.

Hi: Jim Bennett... Here on the north shore of Lake Erie we have two seasons. Winter and Construction The last week of Aug., along the St. Lawrence river, it was so humid the dew stuck to the underside of the awning, along with the fish flies!!!
Sure it's noisy... but we had to use the A/C unit on low just so we could breathe. So much water ran down the outside of the trailer I thought it was raining. Alf

I'm fortunate to live just outside the Great Smoky Mountains National Park where I can pretty much choose my evening temperatures by the altitude of the campground. My challenge is that my grandchildren live outside Dallas, TX where they have three seasons of hot and one of cold wind. Often, you can see temps in the 90's most of the year there. With the wild swings of temp we have seen over the last few years, I want to have a travel unit that can handle the weather that I encounter on the road. I've spoken to people in North Pole Alaska complaining about temps in the 90's! Add high humidity to high temp and you gotta have air!
