The Dometic air is very noisy and there is hardly a difference in fan speed between low and high. Anyone know how I can lower the fan speed to quite things down some?

One thing that could happen with slowing the fan down is the cooling coil could freeze up. Ive seen it happen in houses when people dont change their furnace filter. The plugged filter restricts the airflow and A-coil gets too cold. Moisture that normally would drain away, freezes to the coil.
Wheather or not this could happen to a truck camper, I dont know. With the smaller BTU's they put out it might not be a problem.
Just something to keep in mind I guess.

I know about lower fan speeds freezing up the coil, but the difference in fan speed on these units is hardly noticeable. If you could lower the fan speed and the temp control it would work for me. Thinking that a rheostat or something might work, but not being an electrician I am clueless.
