Adding start/run Capacitor

Has anyone added a start/run capacitor to a 15,000 BTU Coleman Mach A/C to assist in starting with a generator? I have a 2011 Rockwood 8285WS with a 15,000 BTU A/C. When I opened the capacitor compartment, I found a (small) 7.5 uf cap that goes to the fan motor. I also found a larger cap of 40 uf that goes to the compressor with several wires. I have purchased a SUPCO "E" class SPP6E 90-277V 88-106 uf cap to assist the A/C starting when the generator is being used.

As indicated with the spec sheet displayed, do I just piggyback with the compressor cap as indicated with the CSIR unit. As you can see from the spec sheet, It displays PSC unit and CSIR units. Which do I have?

Any info will be greatly received. My Boliy generator has the "SMART" throttle. I am trying to get all the help I can to use the "SMART' throttle.

I have read and reread the "MOD" for the start cap on the web. I am still confused as it shows the smaller of the two caps being replaced which on my A/C is used for the fan motor.
