SoftStartRV

Iíve installed the softstart on our 2021 3781RL rear AC. Reason is well noted here by other owners, but my issue differs in the that our 20A (storage) shore power trips offline when the unit shuts down, not when itís starting up. All power drawing breakers have been shut off, to include the microwave. So, with all of those off the 20A should more than easily absorb the single unit Startup and shut down.

Our AC is the Coleman Mach.

Has anyone else had this or any similar issues with the install of a softstart device?

Thanks,
Doug

You should call Danny, soft start Engineer who talked me through my installation on 2 units, we have zero issues and 1 unit runs with our 2k predator inverter generator. PM me I'll give you his number.

That doesn't sound right? Did you take any pictures of your install?
