    Hello. Hoping for some insight. I have a new Engel Fridge and while I don't believe it to be noisy, I feel the humming might be too annoying on a long roadtrip (ala DS vibration/hum annoyance). It's not always running.

    Any thoughts or experiences to share?

    It will hum a bit. I sleep next to it and even that doesn't bother me.

    Duty cycle wise it's about 1:3 roughly and less when it's cool. Not too bad.

    Thanks for the info. With radio or conversation, I barely noticed it. It also has been a bit warm here in SoCal so I expected it to cycle a little more.

    I can sleep thru that for sure :) just wondering if it annoyed anyone (i.e. significant others)

    I can feel the hum of my Engel from the RTT! Mine was bought circa 2004.
