Not much room in that AC for sure

So was the weather warm enough to try it out?

No Joe, it's actually been fairly nice today, but the weather guesser is talking about nasty rainy weather and windy coming in over the next several days.

If you have ever been woke up by the sound of your air conditioner compressor cycling on and off this is a product you may be interested in. After installing mine I can hardly hear the compressor ramp up.
I have no interest in the company that produces the board that can accomplish this but I love the change it made in my air conditioner. Sweet dreams!

What I mentioned above about a post on the Casita forum here's what it says.
Special announcement here:

To show our appreciation, Micro-Air is going to extend a discount offer to all Casita owners between now and the end of the calendar year for $50 off the EasyStart 364 or the equivalent percentage off the EasyStart 366. Just enter the coupon code "CASITA" during checkout on our webstore.

So to save some $$'s order before Christmas

The offer has been extended but won't last forever.

I forgot to mention the fantastic level of support you get from Micro Air if you need it or just have a question or two.

Thank you Joe Romas for the coupon code. I have a Snoozy with a window shaker, it took longer to figure out how to pry the front off of the AC than it did to install the Micro Air soft start. Before the soft start the 2K would still show a flicker of the red overload light when the AC started when NOT in eco mode. Now my Honda 2K easily starts my AC in eco mode and I can hear the volume of the generator tick up a notch when the compressor comes on. Very nifty modification and easy to do. Well worth it.

Your welcome.
What AC does your Snoozy have?

8K BTU Frigidare window shaker. When I opened the case on the AC I found out why it was so hard to start to begin with. NO start capacitor at all. But the soft start unit works really well. Thanks again and sorry for taking so long to get back to this. Didn't catch the message update.

Spring is here, bringing this AC thread back to the top

Since people are thinking about AC units again they may want to read this thread, lots of information and testimonials.

Again I have NO connection to Micro Air other than a satisfied customer.

Jim, curious if you went with the 364 in a box, or the 366 board and separate capacitor. Reason being is I am considering a Frigidare 8k upgrade in my egg.

Thanks very much in advance!
