Could This Be An RV Converter Problem?

by Joanne Dixon
(Nashville, tn)

Humming sound in my 2010 Fleetwood Bounder RV when plugged into electricity. It is a 50 amp plugged into a 25 amp and we have the correct adapter. Only 600 miles on the RV.

ANSWER: Hi Joanne first you need to know that hearing some noise from your RV's Converter is completely normal and in some cases the Converter itself will make a humming noise and sometimes the noises you are hearing may the cooling fans on the Converter that keep it at its proper operating temperature.

Unless you are hearing a very loud electrical noise or you are experiencing problems with the electrical systems in your RV you should not be concerned.

If you are still unsure you should take your Motorhome in and have a Certified RV Technician take a look at it, since it should still be under warranty.

I hope this helped.

I also have the same humming noise
by: Howard

I also own a 2010 Fleetwood Bounder RV and experience the same humming noise. I discussed it with the service tech of dealership where I purchased my RV and they said it was normal. I guess its one of those things we just have to get use to. Hope this helps.
