I have 2018 27RK Crusader Lite with 30 amp service. I have installed a Coleman-Mach 8 Cub Air Conditioner 9000 btu with heater in the front bedroom. I have also installed 2 EasyStart™ 364 (3-ton) Soft Starter in each A/C unit. Main A/C is a Brisk 15000 btu. Also have installed the Progressive Industries HW30C 30 Amp Hardwired EMS-HW30C RV Surge & Electrical Protector. I had to add in my own wiring to the breaker panel. With this installation it has allowed me to run both A/C units at the same time. I can also run the two A/C units on my Champion 3500 watt generator. Had to fabricate a bypass plug for the generator cause of the Progressive unit.

Installed a MicroAir soft start $300 and works great with a Westinghouse 2200 generator- installation was easy Peasy

Did you do the 3 times off and on set up procedure? Does your Westinghouse gen. stay up high in RPMS during run time?

I bought mine directly from MicroAir and their instructions called for 5 time on and off and I did do the 5. Yes the Westinghouse gen ran on high RPMS while the AC was running but would drop back to ECO when the AC cycled off. Best wishes!
