Humming

we have a new Jayco Eagle Premiere. We have used it two weekends so far. We just it based and set up n a seasonal site. When in the camper others have noticed a significant buzz/hum noise. When no other background noise I do hear it. My daughter says it is so bad she can't sit inside the camper. Has anyone else experienced this and if so what is it and do I correct or silence. Help.

Do you have gen prep or a generator? If so it's probably the transfer switch.

Could it be your water pump running constantly?

The only devices that I'm aware of that could cause a hum is vibration from the AC, the converter fan, the refrigerator compressor (if a regular house unit), or the inverter for the refrigerator (if a regular house unit). Obviously, if it's the AC, it should go off if you turn the AC off. If it's the converter fan, it should go away if you turn off all 12 volt devices. This includes lights. If it's the refrigerator, it should cycle as the refrigerator cycles on and off. If it's the inverter for the refrigerator, you'll likely have to hit the power button on the inverter itself to turn it off.

I have a noisy relay or solenoid at the rear of my 12 cu. Norcold Refrigerator that I have added to my list for the dealer to check out. Could this be a possibility?

Thank You

Thanks to all who offered suggestions. I will not be back at my camp for a couple weekends but I will work through the list offered. A couple of them we have checked out already but some not. Thanks again.
