Re: converter humming
you are right, that would solve the problem, and it is a nice simple solution. But we set the trailer up with reading lights on the driver's side, and the TV on the passenger side, so we would have to flip around rather than just reaching up and turning off the lights.
Also, one of the unexpected fringe benefits of the trailer is sharing a small bed. We end up doing a lot more snuggling in the trailer than our queen size bed at home. It isn't that we like each other better when we are camping, just that we are so cozy. Over on FGRV Norm (of Norm and Ginny) talked about how they felt a bit adrift in their queen bed after returning from a 300+ day trip. I really identify, even though our longest trip is only about 21 days. We have even talked about getting a smaller bed for our home.
We put a 2" mattress topper on the cushions. So the hum is coming through the 4" cushions, 2" of foam and a couple of inches of pillow. One of these days, I am going to get down there and see how loud it is if you open the compartment.
All that said, thanks for the suggestion. I appreciate it.
