@ Garbonz - your post sounded as if you might have tried other capacitors before this one. If so, which ones? I just installed the Supco SPP6 and a fan delay @ 9 sec and did notice an improvement over stock setup. It was a simple 2 wire but would be interested if this one is even better (some mixed reviews on the internet about the SPP6). I'm running a Coleman-Mach 15k.

Thanks!

I was looking at the 3T soft starter from MicroAir and on the installation there's a note that you have to change to a relay, do you have any info on that.

Oh Boy Lots of good questions here, and I would mostly direct you to the Micro Air web site and their tech support.

I don't think you need anything other than the device they have that I mentioned which is rated for more than anything in the RV world. They are not exclusively an RV outfit but have a variety of applications so some of the information on relays and such are for complex devices.

I have a 9K BTU dometic, but I think this device will work on anything you got. I don't know if it will definitely work on a 15K RV AC with the honda 200i, since I havn't tested that, but I wouldn't be suprized if it did.

In my experiance the 2000i bogged down horribly (with a dometic hard start capacitor) if it started at all and with this device installed it barely came up out of eco mode. I should put my loop meter on the feed to see what it actually is drawing on start up, but it certainly is WAY less than the 2000i can handle, and remember I am at over 6000ft and running propane so I am depowered by 10% or more.

The wiring is 4 wires and replaces the PCTR and Start capacitor. Here is the specific wiring diagram they sent me based on the manual that I scaned and sent them. It was a piece of cake and took less than an hour.

Hope this answered some of your questions.

I posted the answer in a separate post.

Here's the link: Most of the video is on the use of off grid solar and batteries for Air Conditioning, but they mention the soft start product, but they did not actually use try it yet.

Donno, but they will, give them a call or Email. They seem to stay up all night and answer questions.
