I recieved my start cap today and in 5 minutes I was doing the first of five "learning" starts on commercial power.
Then I brought out my Honda 2000i.
With the AC on high and the trailer 30 amp plug unplugged.
I plugged the trailer plug in and the fan came on and the engine sound only changed very slightly then in 5 seconds the compressor came on and the Honda barley burped, no high speed roar, just a small increase.
I did this several times waiting 3 minutes between starts to allow the AC pressure to bleed down.
Next I tried plugging it in without waiting for the three minute bleed down and the engine sped up but did not roar and go into overload as the Easy Start shut the compressor down and in 3 minutes restarted it all by it's self.
Now it was only 80f here today, not desert heat but still warm.
The easy start does nothing once the AC starts and is running but the engine is running slower. The only reason I can think of since it does not have to speed up so much to start the compressor it's perfectly just putting along??
Just my thought.
Here's the install in my 1999 Dometic Brisk Air 7,180 BTU.
Before and After.
