Yes. That's a run capacitor. Put the hard start across the two terminals. Common and hermetic.

Cool, that's what I thought and that's how I had it wired, was just needin the reassurance before I powered up the generator and a/c units!

Seems to be working ok! Will know for sure this summer in the heat if it helps!

There used to help start the compressor faster. Helps with the voltage sag during startup which helps the generator a lot. I get mine at an a/c supply house. Google supco spp6 I think is the number

Adding a hard start capacitor/ can I ?

Well that STILL didn't fix my generator a/c issues!!!!!

With generator running, running both a/c units, in the heat of the day, the transfer switch will dis engage and buzz rapidly when the a/c tries to cycle, have to shut off one of the a/c units and let generator- transfer switch pull back in....
Had this all checked out at an Rv dealer, , couldn't find anything wrong!
Even replaced transfer switch.... No fix yet..... Added 2 new hard start capacitors thinkin this might help... Nope!

Any other ideas?

add a time delay to one so you do not pull so many amps at start-up. You can get a delay from a A/C dealer. Get a delay that will off set them like for 2 or 3 mins. Your start up is causing to many amps to get out of the start winds. make sure it breaks at shut off, and the energizes at startup that will offset your genny voltage.
