Hey, i've had mine for just over a week now. I parked in my garage, turned the ignition off, and got out. Now, i spent some time in the garage just looking at thing and admiring. Surely enough, after about 5 minutes i heard an electronic whirrring noise and the front lowered very slightly (i did not have it in park mode, left it at normal height before getting out)... so this must have been the compressor running... bingo! I can duplicate it everytime. The pamphlet that came along with the owners DVD, talks to this and says that it is normal.
Now as for that air discharge noise coming from the rear that the rest of you are talking about... thank you! i thought i was going crazy or something. It's starting to sound that this is in fact normal.
I'm going to post a youtube video later of the sound. Can other Overland owners comment. The noise is fine with me as long as its normal and we all have it.
