AC hard start capacitor

I'm looking to hook up a hard start capacitor, but having trouble figuring out which one I need. I have a Coleman Model # 48254C869. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Supco HS6 (SPP6) Hard Start Capacitor would be the one to get.

Yep. Me too- same one. FWIW I even keep an extra one in case another camper needs help.

Fantastic, thanks for the advice and especially the tutorial. It sounds like this capacitor is pretty generic as a one size fits (most) all solution. My champion 3100 will start the AC so long as I turn everything off first which is a pain. So I figure a little help from the additional kick will increase it's overall life. Now the trick will be to know which is the run capacitor. I think the manual has the diagram.

When I took off the cover to the AC, the electrical drawing was on the inside of the cover... no guess work.

I run a 2011 13.5 with a WH2000i with no problem. Works great.
Hello Thomas,

Thank you for your inquiry and your interest in our EasyStart products. EasyStart is perfectly suited for your Coleman Mach 13.5k system powered by a Honda EU2000i. In fact, weíve done extensive testing with the Honda EU2000i generator, and we know that it will start any 115V air conditioner on the market from ECO mode. That will be key for your being able to run overnight on one tank of gas.

The model EasyStart that you need is ASY-364-X36. You can view it on our website at this link, and purchase it in our webstore at this link. There are generic wiring diagrams on our website, but we can assist you further with your specific system. If you send a photo of your wiring diagram, we can edit it and show you exactly where the EasyStart connects.

To help you figure out the wiring on your own if you would rather do that, it turns out Coleman-Mach manufactured a 15k rooftop system specifically meant for applications in Australia, and they built in EasyStart in their factory in Kansas. Attached is a wiring diagram of that system which shows the EasyStartís 4-wire connections.

Please let us know if you have any further questions. Thank you again for your interest and business.

Would like to see a little more detail for install as I'm not an electrician. Later RJD
