I did a bit of checking on drawings and find that looks like a speaker from the drawings. If you are hearing a fan it is logical that you are hearing the converter fan as it is right next door to the left and a speaker with little on the backside may let the sound come straight through.
But it may take a check to see that the speaker is not putting out a noise full time, indicating something is not fully turned off as that could also eat battery??
But the converter operation while driving should be fine and supplying all the power for any 12VDC items like a radio.
That can be part of the confusing things as there is a solenoid which ties both the coach battery and the chassis battery with the engine alternator all together at times.
One is when we are running the engine and want the alternator to put some power back into both sets of batteries as we drive to the next campsite.
OR it has a second function using a switch near the driver, often labeled "boost or aux" which can be used to momentarily connect the batteries together to get a "jump start" for a weak chassis battery!
But this should not make the battery run down while driving as it is designed to power things inside like the lights, fans, and other things we might want to use while moving. The things we use on a car are running off the alternator so it simply adds the RV coach items to the group while running and then disconnects them when we stop so that each group can do it's part without risking running ALL of them down at once to leave us stranded.
