Fans on Thor Palazzo

I have two fans in the inverter bay on my 36.1. As long as the coach is being used the fans are on. Is this normal? Should they ever cut off?

Those are the cooling fans for the inverter, if you shut the inverter off the fans will go off too, if not have it looked at.

It is such a small fan with such little draw that I honestly I don't worry about it much. It does have a small thermostat on it, but it has to get below 70 or so before mine cuts off, and being in there with the inverter/charger, it has to be chilly outside before it gets low enough.

Mine will run about 6 hours after plugging shore line in. No matter what. Door open/closed doesn't matter Even moved temp sensor doesn't matter

it sounds annoying, but it's doing its job - versus the inverter overheating and failing.

some of us will put a piece of ice on the 'thermo' button to shut it off, especially if sitting outside near it trying to enjoy some quiet...

You're right it is annoying. But as long as I know it's supposed to be running ............I don't mind. Thanks!

Thermostat is pre-set to 80. Ambient temp or cmpt above 80 fan(s) will run.
