Thanks for the suggestions. Your mod is actually on my list of things to to reduce the start load along with a start capacitor, but now not until it is starting as normal. I actually did put the fan to manual after the third try and it didn't make any difference. It started finally on 7th try with the fan switch in auto.
My point is I never had to do that before.
I have lithiums in the thermostat instead of alkalines so that SHOULD
not be the issue, but I did not have my tester or spares with me on that trip out to the storage site. Next trip I will take fresh spares to swap out. Just hoping to eliminate anything I can do myself before rolling out to the dealer to check it out.
