Default Pleasure Way Ascent- AC Fan Speed

Is there a way to turn the AC fan speed down on a Pleasure Way Ascent? When the AC reaches a comfortable tempature, the low fan speed is still too loud so I am wondering if anyone has found a way to lower the fan speed.

What brand/model is the A/C? There might be someone here who has the same unit and can advise appropriately.

What is the point of this forum if the advice we get is to go to Facebook? I have a Hymer Aktiv and I had to reluctantly join Facebook because every time I found a question on this forum about the Aktiv the poster was told to go to the Facebook group.

Because people are more active on Facebook than forums!

Default Pleasure Way Ascent- AC Fan Speed

Iím looking into a remote thermostat to solve the very same problem posted by Floydj. I have a Dometic AC in my Roadtrek RS. From looking at pictures it looks like Floydj has one too. Iím hoping that a remote thermostat will actually cycle the AC off like the thermostat at my house but I am still researching it. In the very least I could mount it within reach of the bed so I can turn it off without getting up.

For model-specific questions, a model-specific group will get you a first-hand answer quickly.

For general questions, eg Onan, Truma, electrical or solar in general, this forum is the best.


Alll questions are welcomed, there is nothing wrong with asking a model-specific question here. When people direct you to other groups, they don't mean it in an ill-will way. They have hung around here long enough to know that certain questions just don't get answered quickly.


ps. The PW FB group is quiet. You won't get much attention there either.

Hey Knit, sounds like we're thinking the same way. I also think if the fan ran slower to reduce noise then the compressor would cycle as needed based on the temperature setting. Your comment about the unit turning off and on like a home ac would be helpful as well. Curious to what you find out.

I added a PWM speed controller to to fan in my Rixen's Espar heat exchanger. You can get them on eBay for almost nothing. It works great. I don't see why it wouldn't work in the A/C fan, unless maybe the fan was already PCM controlled.
