TURN OFF ALL POWER BEFORE BEGINNING YOUR INSTALLATION
NOTE: You can create space for your SoftstartRV by doing the following: Remove the right side strap screw holding the capacitors and disconnect both Red and Yellow wires. Remove the Start Capacitor, then Slide the Run and Fan Capacitors against the left side wall and re-secure them to the front of the left side wall using the same strap. Now you can mount the SoftstartRV and all wires inside the Electrical Box after wiring is completed.
Step 1) Follow the White Compressor wire to Run Capacitor “C” Terminal. Disconnect and connect it to the Blue SoftstartRV wire.
Step 2) Connect the Black SoftstartRV wire to the terminal the White wire was on.
Step 3) Follow the Red compressor wire from the compressor to the “HERM” terminal. DO NOT DISCONNECT RED COMPRESSOR WIRE. Connect the Yellow SoftstartRV wire on the Terminal next to the Red compressor wire if it is available (see next step).
Step 4) IF you see a 2nd Red wire next to the Red compressor wire DISCONNECT it, tape the end and drop it. Then connect the Yellow SoftstartRV wire on the Terminal where you pulled off the second Red wire.
Step 5) Follow the Black Compressor wire and cut it approximately 10″ from the top of the compressor (NOTE: If A/C is in warranty DO NOT CUT any wires contact tech support). After cutting the Black wire, crimp a female connector on the end that is still attached to the compressor. Now connect that Black wire to the Brown SoftstartRV wire.
Step 6) Crimp a Male Connector on the remaining loose end of the Black Compressor wire heading to the freeze switch. Then connect it to the Red SoftstartRV wire.
Before turning the power back on, secure wires to prevent the fan from pulling them in. Turn the Power and A/C breaker on, Turn the Fan on High until you hear it running, then Turn the A/C to Auto Cool and set the Thermostat to 55 degrees.
Look at the SoftstartRV for a Green light (There may be a full 3 min delay before the Green light comes on).
After you see the Green Light, Turn the power off, tidy up your wires and replace all covers. Then turn the A/C back on and allow it to run for 30 min at about 2 degrees below the outside temperature which should allow it to cycle a few times.
IF after 3 min you don’t have a green light, shut the A/C OFF and contact Tech Support, www.softstartrv.com/support and fill out a ticket.
