Hello All,

I know you probably heard this a ton but I need some assistance with this strange noise. I have a 2019 Coachman Freelander 28bh and it is making a strange noise. It starts after 10mph and continues but the wind noise drowns it out on the freeway. At 10mph it starts slow then speeds up at 20mph and keeps same rhythm. The noise itself sounds like a hand crank wind up radio and is coming from between the fridge and oven. Infront of the rear passenger wheel well.any help is appreciated! Thank you.

The back of the fridge is vented to the outside and thus lots of moving air. I’d wager you have a panel or some heat shielding that’s a little loose and is vibrating.

Open it up as best you can and with someone on the inside begin tapping in different areas and at different levels of intensity.

Hand crank wind up radio?

I'm only 60 and curious if a better example can be had.
Don't care for weird noises myself but can't wrap my head around what that sounds like.

"wine DING" sound ?
Like one of those emergency survival radios make
When you crank the handle to charge it up,
Same thing for those little emg flashlights

That's wind noise, you have an air leak around the fridge between the inside and outside
You might want to remove the roof vent cap and look for some thing that is deflecting air down into that area

Wow you guys are detectives! That gives me a great direction to move towards. Car noises scan be very cryptic and that was my best guess on noise. Check out the video at 5:00. https://youtu.be/KEuRPZqOdC0

I will start poking around when I can get to my rv. Thank you all!

Drive very slowly with someone walking along side. Is it a click, click, click sound that speeds up as you step on the gas ? Could be a bearing going bad.

Check for a loose hub cap on the rear wheel...

I had a strange noise when parked a few weeks ago. It was coming from the outside of the fridge compartment. Sounded like the cooling fan was hitting something. Got out the ladder and removed the the top panel to see some no longer sticky duct tape flapping in the breeze from the cooling fan.
Hope your fix is as easy as mine was.

Quick update. Checked all the exterior vents and nothing seemed loose. Checked for air holes inside and same. Noise is persistent and it is driving me crazy! I was able to record the sound. Please take a listen. The speed was pretty much from zero to 40 where the noise goes away sparatically.
