Soundproofing Material

We are renovating a 55 Flying Cloud and are installing a Dometic Blizzard split AC. The compressor is located under the rear bed. I will use 1 isolators under the unit, but need to use a sound proofing material around the sides and top of the compressor. Has anyone had experience with materials that would work for this application? Thanks

Bubba L,

Start off reading information about sound/temp control here:
https://www.sounddeadenershowdown.com/

I've then used the following products in the floor, doors and roof for sound/temp control on different projects.

https://www.amazon.com/Noico-deadeni.../dp/B00URUIKAK

Most people do not understand there are many things that go into sound and temp control.

If done right, you will be happy camper!

Thanks Paul, I would like your input to make sure I am interpreting this correctly.

Do I attach the sound deadening tile directly to the compressor to help deaden vibration noise then use a decoupled mass loaded vinyl around the inside of a box I build to surround the compressor and create a sound barrier?
Or would it be better to sandwich the mass loaded vinyl between foam board to build the box?
Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
