If You, Or Someone You Know, Is Looking To Start Their RV A/C Without Campground Power, Read This:



SoftStartRV™ Enables An RV Air Conditioner To Start And Run On A Small Generator, Or Limited Power When It Would Otherwise Not Have Started.

  • Start & Run 2 A/C's on a 30-Amp Hookup with 2 units
  • Start & Run Your A/C on a Small Honda Generator

Tired Of Being Sleepless On A Hot Stuffy Night In The Boondocks?

Now You Can Enjoy Your RV A/C Using Only A Small Honda Generator.

How It Works
SoftStartRV™ temporarily reduces the load and torque in the electric current rush of the motor in the start-up. It uses a soft start ramp-up sequence that achieves a low start-up current. SoftStartRV can deliver 65% to 75% start current decrease, as compared to a compressor’s locked-rotor amperage (LRA).SoftStartRV is the ideal solution that enables an RV air conditioner to start and run on a generator, inverter, or limited utility power when it would otherwise not have started. This reduces the mechanical stress on the motor and on the attached power cables and electrical delivery network, extending the life of the system. Enjoy cool air conditioning using just a small generator and a SoftStartRV – while you are out in the boonies – or anywhere else. Don’t tie yourself down to campground electric anymore.
