High amperage or inrush current is required to start RV AC compressors. This is why small portable generators often fail to power your AC. While you might have a generator powerful enough to run the AC, they frequently can’t handle the in-rush spike required to start the air conditioner.
The RVAC Solutions soft start reduces the inrush current by up to 75%. And this is sufficient to allow you to run a single air conditioner from a small portable generator, or a 15 or 20 amp household outlet, as well as to allow you to run two AC units on a 30-amp connection without tripping the breaker! For those that frequently hit the road, RV Soft Start is mandatory.
