Air Conditioning and the Honda EU2000i
FINALLY an absolute solution to the dilema. I've been working on this A LONG time and have start capacitored and fan delayed myself to distraction and up here at 6000 feet just could not get my Honda 2000 generator to consistently start my A/C unit. It usually would start it the first time, but eventually the head pressure on the compressor during restart would overload. The locked rotor amps on my Dometic was like 47 amps in the spec. manual.
I was surfin YOUTUBE and watching a little piece by the Wynn's (Gone with the Wynn's) and they made a brief mention of the "soft start microporcessor device" made by MicroAir in Pennsylvania that claims they can reduce starting amp draw by 70%.
Voila, I ordered (not cheap) their EasyStart 3T Model 364, and installed it today (only 4 wires).
Now the A/C starts VERY Easily (the Eco mode barely comes out of operation) and I can even run most of the other stuff in the camper without even thinking about it.
The tech support is unbelievably good, they even sent me a specific diagram of exactly how to wire the unit on my specific Dometic model.
No more lugging around 2 generators just to start the AC unit.
Might be an idea for those that want to use their AC and not lug down their generator or carry a big genny or two, I think it should work fine on a large variety of AC's and gennys'
I am impressed to say the least.
