29. Q. If I have a big generator or parallel two generators, will I need SoftStartRV™?

A. Yes, you probably need a SoftStartRV™. Power management is key and how large a generator and what appliances you operate at the same time. Without SoftStartRV™ the start surge is massive. Generators react to load by slowing down and decreasing the voltage to the air conditioner. If the decreased voltage slows down the generator, they overload and then the air conditioner can’t start. High outdoor temperatures increase the refrigerant pressures triggering a greater current draw. Customers with Honda EU3000iS generators and SoftStartRVs said when temperatures are high their generator won’t start the A/C consistently. Many 4KW generators do start a rooftop A/C consistently but they are much larger and heavier
