We received this letter from RV Travel reader Neida Perrie asking for advice. What would you do in this situation? Here is what she wrote:
“We are in a beautiful RV park. In addition to our coach facing a golf course we also enjoy large patios and grass surrounding the entire site. Like most RVers we enjoy spending time on our patio. We just had a Beaver motorhome with a basement air conditioner pull in next door. There are two large vents on the bottom of the RV that face our patio. When they turn on their air conditioning there is the continuous noise from the blowers and hot air is blown out through these hoses.
“We had friends over one evening and we had a hard time hearing each other as the noise was so bad. I understand that when it is hot they need to run their air conditioning. But, this makes it difficult for us to enjoy our patio.
“I don’t know why any manufacturer would do something like this – maybe this is part of the reason that Beaver is no longer in business. But, I would love some suggestions as to how to handle this difficult situation.”
My short response:
Noise pollution is a problem, whether you are experiencing it from an outdoor TV, stereo, generator or simply loud conversation. I’ll post your letter and urge our readers to respond. Let’s see what they say. But, basically, there isn’t much you can do but request they move to another site, perhaps one away from others. Also, maybe there is a problem with their AC that is causing the extra noise. You could talk to them about that.
