It has done what I describe on my unit running two different AC units and at various CGs. I think the hot start issue is different, which I hope the "kit" will help. They say you can run the Dometic 13.5K unit on a 2000i Honda with it installed... we will see.
Yes that is exactly what I meant. Your compressor has 3. Start , run and common. with the start pulling the most amps.
