RV Air Conditioner Soft Start Tech is Smaller Than Ever – RVBusiness – Breaking RV Industry News
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – For RVs equipped with rooftop air conditioners, savvy owners have been adding soft starter technology to eliminate untimely shutdowns due to A/C startup-related issues, according to a press release from SoftStart.
However, one thing that has kept some RVers from installing soft starters has been their large size. Many are simply too big to fit under the A/C cover.
SoftStart introduces a more compact SoftStartRV Advanced Soft Starter that is over 52% smaller than original RV A/C soft starters. It fits under the lowest profile A/C covers and delivers the same high-quality performance of many larger models.
How a SoftStartRV Soft Starter Makes RV Life Better
A SoftStartRV unit on each RV air conditioner enables RVers to start and run two A/Cs on a 30-amp hookup or a generator. It also lets RVers start and run one air conditioner on a small 2,200-watt generator. SoftStartRV even lets RVers run an air conditioner from batteries with the proper setup.
A SoftStartRV A/C soft starter gives RVers much more flexibility in planning RV adventures. Because it greatly reduces the power needed to startup an A/C unit, the SoftStartRV lets people keep more electrical appliances running simultaneously. It also lets RVers keep comfortable with limited generator or 120 VAC household power.
Soft Starter Functionality in a Smaller Package
“When wedging a component into an already cramped space – such as inside a rooftop A/C unit – the reduced size of the latest SoftStartRV is a big change,” said Doug Curtis, co-Founder of SoftStartUSA.“It’s 52% smaller than many RV A/C soft starters which means it will fit any RV A/C unit. This engineering improvement virtually eliminates one of the biggest challenges to adding a soft starter to an RV air conditioner,” Curtis continued.
Easy SoftStartRV A/C Installation
To make installation easy, each SoftStartRV unit includes a complete Install Kit with wire connectors, screws and wire ties. In addition, each order includes a free wire crimping tool so anyone can secure the connectors onto the wires without having to get special tools. The whole process takes about 20-30 minutes.
No-Cut, No-Splice Installation
Understanding that many people have not added a SoftStartRV to their RV because of installation concerns, a SoftStartRV can be installed without cutting or splicing any wires.
Every SoftStartRV product includes the unit, instructions, and a kit with all the parts needed to complete the installation. A/C unit-specific instructions can be downloaded from the SoftStartRV website.
If someone is not comfortable with performing an installation on their own, the SoftStartRV website support page invites people to set up a date and time so that a technical support person can walk someone through the installation, step-by-step, over the phone.
Exclusive Waterproof Performance
To withstand extremely humid conditions and the condensation that rooftop A/C units generate, the newest SoftStartRV model is also waterproof, delivering worry-free operation regardless of muggy climates or extended A/C use.“SoftStartRV is the only soft starter that is built and tested to meet stringent waterproof standards,” Curtis added.
Extended 3-Year Warranty Guarantees Lasting Performance
To assure customers of premium performance, SoftStartoffers a standard 1-year warranty, and then extends it for 2 more years with online registration of the SoftStartRV product. Other manufacturers offer a 1-year warranty and then charge extra for only 1 additional year.
