TURN OFF ALL POWER BEFORE BEGINNING YOUR INSTALLATION
Route All SoftstartRV wires into the electrical box. Then Crimp the connectors on all the SoftstartRV wires as shown in the SoftstartRV box above.
Step 1) Follow the White Compressor wire to the “C” Terminal of the Run Capacitor. Disconnect it and then plug it into the Blue SoftstartRV wire.
Step 2) Connect the Black SoftstartRV wire on the terminal the White compressor wire was on.
Step 3) Follow the Red Compressor wire to where it connects on the “HERM” terminal. If there is an empty terminal next to the Red Compressor wire, then connect the Yellow SoftstartRV wire on it. (see Step 4)
Step 4) IF you see a 2nd red wire on the terminal next to the Red Compressor wire DISCONNECT it, tape the end and drop it.
NEW: NOTE: If you follow your Black Compressor wire and it goes to a connection with a Purple wire then you use steps 5A and 6A. If your Black Compressor wire goes to a Relay then you use Steps 5B and 6B.
Step 5A) Follow the Black Compressor wire to where it is connected to the Purple wire. From the connection go back on the Black wire approximately 4″ and cut it. Then put a female connector on it and plug it into the Brown SoftstartRV wire.
Step 6A) Crimp a Male connector on the Black wire that turns to Purple. Now plug it into the Red Softstart wire.
Step 5B) Follow the Black compressor wire to the Start Relay, Disconnect and plug it into the Brown SoftstartRV wire.
Step 6B) Connect the Red SoftstartRV wire on the terminal the Black wire was on. Secure the wires to prevent the fan from pulling them in during testing. 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, set the Thermostat to 55 degrees and look for the Green Light on the SoftstartRV. (There may be a full 3 min delay if unit is in test mode)
If the GREEN Light is on, then turn the power and A/C off, replace all the covers and turn the A/C back on allowing it to run for approximately 30 minutes at about 2 degrees below the outside temperature letting it cycle a few times.
IF no Green Light comes on after 4 minutes shut the A/C down and contact Tech Support, www.softstartrv.com/support and fill out a ticket.
