Inverter vs a/c problem

Just bought 2023 fr3 34ds. Unit has an nps 5500 economy inverter. A/c units are ge brand. According to nps , inverter will not run ge a/c units due to high amps needed to start compressors. Forest river knows about issue and has soft start kts in stock to remedy the problem
Anyone who has a unit with thenps 5500 and GE a/cs will have this same problem

if you are having this issue, please reach out to your Forest River Dealer for the fix.

I had exactly this issue. NPS-5500 and GE AC units on new 2023 30DS.

One AC would work on the generator about 50% of the time -- maybe 75% of the time. The other unit would NEVER start up on the generator.

Forrest river sent the soft-start units to the dealer. I had to take the unit in a week after delivery to have them installed. After a week of beating up on the system, both AC have been 100% reliable.
