Hard Start Capacitor

I have a 13.5 BTU A/C (Dometic). I want to add a hard start capacitor. I have searched here and other forums and seem to get conflicting info. Do I want the Supco spp6 or the SPP6E?. Thanks for any info....

I put the SPP6 on mine and it worked fine.

Also I have a thread to delay fans while compresser starts and gets up and running. About a 5 second delay.
It helps!

It made a big difference in mine. It is very easy and cheap to do. They should come this way from the factory.

OK - I know what a capacitor is and what it's purpose is. My question is - are you talking about installing one in a unit that has its AC's powered by shore power only or in a unit that has an onboard generator?

I am having a second AC installed in my FW and the dealer just stated to make sure I wait about 30 seconds after starting the first one before starting the second one.
