Curious why you ask?

Welcome to the Sabre family!

Does my AC have a delay start? I have read a lot on this subject and I'm not at all getting educated on the subject just confused. Some say the new ones do and then someone will chime in and says that the delay is in the thermostat. I've read about how to test them to see if they have a delay and someone will say the thermostat is 12 volts and is powered off the battery so the test won't tell you if the AC or thermostat has a delay. I sure hope you get your answer. I called my HVAC guy to service my GEOTHERMAL Water Source Heat Pump, I will be asking him what he knows about this delay.

You should set it to 2 min time delay. Every stat has a time delay in it but if you do not lose 12 volt it will not reset. Pretty easy to tell if your stat has it. Turn it off and then back on to cool and drop the temp. Should have about 11/2 min time delay in it, but then your breaking the 12 volt not like if you lost 110 volt, because you still have 12 volt to the stat from the battery . The longer the delay the more time it has to equalize. in other words if you power pops of then on the stat will call for cooling already no time delay. It will shut off on over load, High and the low side have to equalize.

totally agree with gljurczyk. I'm likely going with the longer delay to be on the safe side. Hoping to get a progressive real soon, but first I need to figure out in my head how I'm going to get it behind my my electrical control panel and hook everything up.

Delay for AC

I agree that if you maintain 12 volt power to the thermostat during a 120 volt power out the thermostat will not recognize the power out condition, and will call for AC without any delay. I don't know what it will do if you lose 12 volt power, but I picked up a Progressive EMSPT50C unit that I really trust to keep my AC's and rig safe. Keep in mind that when you first connect the unit to shore power it will treat it as if there were a power outage and start cycling through to see if the correct power is present now. After about 2 1/2 minutes of analyzing the system and delay, it will restore 120 volt power to the RV if all is well. I have also used it in some of the older parks to check if the shore power is good, even before I unhook. I have had two instances were it told me the power was less than 103 volts one of the legs, something that will damage the AC and your electronics. I went to the office and changed sites to one that had good power readings. Get a Progressive unit (or similar) and you will feel a LOT better about protection for your rig. At $350 it isn't a cheap item, but it is way cheaper than a new AC compressor if you lock it up.

I'm just about ready to pull the trigger on a progressive 50 amp hardwired EMS, but I want to make sure I could find a location for it. The more thought I put into it, I believe a portable one like yours might be a better choice. Factory can't void the warranty, because I won't be modifying the wiring. How are you locking it up to keep it from growing legs and walking off? Also do you cover it to keep it out of the weather? thanks
rvsafety.net is where I was going to order the hardwired one for $305.00 and they also have the portable 50 EMS for $315.00. $10.00 more without the pain of installing.
