If the CG is noisy, we just put the air conditioner's fan. It gives enough white noise to cover the party folks (unless they are right next to the trailer!).

JOe

Same, we use fan noise inside to insulate us from outside noise.

Yeah, we just might upgrade to a hard-side TT or a Class C motorhome.

With respect to the fan: Does it run off the battery and how much does it use if left on overnight?

if you are not plugged into electricity it will run off the battery. How long it will run will depend on what size battery you have and what condition it is in.

I have a brand new 12VDC battery that is in great condition and fully charged when I begin my boondocking. Any ideas on how much degradation of the battery will occur if I leave the fan on all night?

I may be wrong on this, I am not positive that the AC fan unit will run off the battery, I have never tried that. Has anyone else?

As to noise, not sure what can be done to quiet pop out sleepers. I just mark it up to the adventures of public camping. The best thing would simply be to head outside, meet with them, and enjoy some good conversation with a set of new friends you just made.
