I thought mine cycled on a lot and the manufacturer's info said it was so quiet I would probably not hear it.
aren't all the lights, vent fans and refrigerator fan powered by the inverter?

If so, then figuring out a way to easily turn the inverter on and off would be a great help IF that is the fan we hear running. Kermit told us it is the CONVERTER fan that we hear and most people will never hear the inverter as it has a little fan and is tucked back in under the bed.
There are a few things that use inverted power 24/7 unless you go out of your way to disable or unplug them. They are your GFI outlet in the bathroom, your TV and possibly your head unit with CD/DVD player. They just might be the reason why the inverter is blowing it's cooling fan for what appears to be randomly. That is why many of us turn on the inverter only when 110V is needed, otherwise utilizing 12v system features.
