Custom developed for home use, the SoftStart Home 6-Ton SoftStarter can start a home A/C on a medium to small generator that puts out about 25 Amps or more.  A Typical Home A/C cannot start on a medium or small generator as it need 60 to 75 Amps just to start.  Then after starting it settles down to run at 12 to 15 amps.  With our SoftStart Home 6-Ton Product, you cut down the starting amps your A/C requires as much as 70%!  So now you need 70% less power to start your A/C.  This is the solution to power up your A/C when it otherwise would not start.  Use it to fire up other devices too that need a big surge to start.  Emergency power solutions on a small to medium generator are now possible with the SoftStart Home 6-ton Product.  Works with 110 volt to 220 volt compressors/motors, up to a 72,000 BTU A/C.  Weatherproof, it easily mounts inside the compressor housing.    Wire it yourself with our free telephone tech support, or your regular A/C technician can install it in about 30 min. Comes with a 2 Year Free Extended Warranty With Registration.

Suzanne Hinton, Hinton On The Trail This is an even more superior product. We were already impressed with the original soft start [SoftStartRV], because we have it on both of our air conditioners and it really makes a difference with the noise and how it starts up…Normally when the bedroom air conditioning comes on, it’s really loud. [With the SoftStartUp] I didn’t even hear it. This is an even more superior product. Wes Koshoffer, Full Time RVer I couldn’t be more pleased I couldn’t be more pleased with the idea that I can run dual air conditioning units and miscellaneous loads on 30 amp service in this RV. Chris Hinton, Hinton On The Trail It ran Perfectly! We set up the SoftStartUp on the generator and we started on the first air conditioner, it worked. Added the second [air conditioner]. And then we went to the refrigerator. And then the water heater. And we were still able to run it. And then we switched over to propane…It still ran perfectly.
Wes Koshoffer, Full Time RVer Loved built in surge protector One of the other things that I really found great about this [SoftStartUp] unit was built-in surge protection, and when the air conditioners were kicking on and off as the compressors cycled, it was noticeably quieter and you could tell that the power draw was just an awful lot less, which is better in general for the electrical circuitry and for the rig. Wes Koshoffer, Full Time RVer Was able to run dual ACs and other items I live here in my Rockwood Signature Ultralight fifth wheel…One of the challenges that I have is it’s only a 30 amp service, and so in the summer months we really struggle to keep it cool with a single AC. I recently installed a second air conditioner. I was told you can’t run dual AC on 30 amp service…That is until I tested out this SoftStartUp. We were able to run not only dual air conditioners off of this SoftStartUp plugged in line with my power cord, but a couple of other loads at the same time


Joe Rose Top Notch The assistance from your technician Phil was top notch. Each step was described clearly and without error. I enjoyed my discussions, even after my phone quit and a time zone glitch, but everything went great. I now await warm weather to try my A/C unit out. I have already contacted two of my RV friends and told them about the soft-start add on. I believe they will follow up and modify their units. Thanks again for great service. D. Christensen Installation was very simple on my mere year old 13.5k Dometic Brisk Air II. NetworkRV has diagrams you can print out and follow, which really simplifies things. It took maybe 30 minutes to install. We fired it up on house 120AC just to make sure it was wired up correctly and working (it was). We then unplugged shore power and fired up our Honda EU2000. Initially we tried it on ECO, but it wouldn’t fire it up. The delay from ECO to full power was too long and the generator got in a weird surge rhythm trying to supply enough juice. No big deal, I did not expect it to work on ECO mode. I am at over 5000ft elevation and Generators simply don’t have as much power as at sea level. Try 2, we turned ECO off and then tried the AC again, it fired right up and worked great! We turned off the AC, gave it a few minutes for the AC head pressure to equalize, then tried it again. It started right up with zero problems what-so-ever! Holy smokes I am impressed! I feel at higher elevations, where generators loose 10% per 3000ft elevation (read that somewhere), a EU2000 is on the edge of powering my RV AC. I sold my pair of EU2000’s I was using previously, and have now upgraded to a single EU2200i, just to give me that additional power boost when we are up at +8000ft elevation in the national forest on hot days. Bottom line, IT ABSOLUTELY DOES WORK! We fired the AC right up on a single EU2000i. 🙂 I am so happy I don’t have to lug around 2 generators, twice the space, twice the refueling etc etc. Very cool upgrade for sure. And very happy with the unit. Brian K Excellent customer service! Brian was very responsive and even stayed on my case after hours to help me with my installation. Once installed product worked excellent. Now the AC is even easier on my Honda EU2200I generator than my Microwave.
Ernie L. Impressed …SoftstartRV, is a device that starts your Air Conditioner without the big surge of power that bogs down your generator. I bought one from on Amazon and installed it. I can’t tell you how impressed I was with Brian and his company. As we all know it isn’t a perfect world, I had some questions and Brian was so helpful. This is when a company is tested and Brian and NetworkRV came through. I can now start my new Dometic on my Honda EU-2000 on propane. No more having to haul gas around, no more gas smell. The A/C ramps up slowly instead of the hard surge now. Thank you Brian for all your help in installing this device, we can‘t wait to dry camp now. We used to worry about leaving our dogs alone with the A/C on while running on the Honda. Now I don’t have to worry about popping the surge protector when it cycles. Larry E. It really does work! Running 13.5k AC off a single Honda EU2000 I was on the fence with getting one of these for quite a while, despite a lot of glowing reviews. It is a fair amount of money for an upgrade. But, with this new competitor to the “other brand” soft start and the double warranty, cheaper price etc, I decided to give it a whirl. P. Leddy Tested Out And Working Perfectly After receiving my two Softstart units I studied both the PDF and video instructions to find that my A/C units were not covered for any of the provided wiring instructions. I then requested help through the “Ticket Support”. Shortly afterwards I was contacted by Phil and through his superb and patient direction I was able to complete the installation of both units. I am very pleased to say that both of my A/C’s with the Softstart units perform as advertised. I am also pleased with the fact that I can now run one of the A/C’s at my home on household 120v / 20 amp breaker with a HD extension cord and not have to rely on a 50 amp service. I am now looking forward to being comfortable whether I’m hooked up to shore power or my portable generator. Thank you again Phil.
Allison Van B. Very impressed – great product! Thanks for helping me stay cool. I purchased 2 SoftStartRVs, one for myself and one for a friend. DIY installation was easy. The compressor start-up is very quiet now, no more ‘THUMP’. My wife and kids don’t wake up in the middle of the night. Before installing the SoftStartRV on my friend’s trailer, we tried starting his 13,500 BTU A/C using his single Honda EU2000i generator. With the Honda in ECO mode, the A/C fan running on low, we tried to start the compressor. The Honda went into overload and then disconnected from the load. After installing the SoftStartRV, we performed the same test. The A/C started fine and the overload light on the Honda didn’t even flicker. The SoftStartRV should be standard equipment on all RV air conditioners. Thanks again for an amazing product. Brian This is terrific! I bought the SoftstartRVand installed it in my Dometic15000 BTU A/C on my 5th Wheel! I was having a small problem wiring it and called the customer service line. Surprisingly, a real person answered. He explained the wiring process step by step. Thank you, My 2000-watt Honda generator started my A/C easily. A smart decision I made on getting this unit. Thank You! Bill Giant improvement! Installation was on a Brisk II. Before the install, Honda 2000 had difficulty starting the compressor on eco mode. After installation, the A/C starts and runs with the generator on eco mode. No more stupid thump and trailer shaking when the compressor starts. Installation was super easy, and I have never taken the cover off of my rooftop A/C before. If I can do it, anybody can. I highly recommend SoftstartRV!
John D. Works Great! I was dubious as to how this product would work, especially considering the price. I have to say the sellers video and specific instructions for each make and model a/c made the install a piece of cake. This thing really works — you can’t hardly hear the compressor when it kicks in. Very quite and seems to work perfect with my light weight 2200 watt generator. Highly recommend. Garrett M. Customer Service is there promptly when you need it, Thank you Used on my RV at home plugged into a 15 amp service, I can run 1 ac to help keep it cool and moisture out! I had concerns with the wiring, contacted SoftStartRV and Phil called me back, he helped me with every detail of the install, he was the best. Thank you SoftStart and Phil. Healthy Thinker Great product with good installation instructions. This shipped immediately and delivered in 2 days. Install was fairly straight forward. I have a Coleman Mach series unit and there are two possibilities for the start cap wiring…had to figure out what was really in the unit. Install took a little over an hour. It’s too cold right now to give it a test run, but I don’t foresee any problems.
Mike Great Product and Great Customer Support I purchased this to be able to run my Lance travel trailer air conditioner using my Yamaha generator. I live at 7400 feet in Colorado and often camp at even higher altitudes, and the Yamaha balked at the start-up loads of the air conditioner. I installed the SoftStartRV without any problems (I did call Brian at SoftStartRV Support once – he returned my call immediately and gave great guidance). Now my generator handles the air conditioner easily! No more hot nights in my trailer wishing I could run the air! Great product and great customer support. Dennis H. Works Like A Champ! Discovered right away coming to Florida that trying to run an air conditioner with a generator is impossible. It just kills the generator. So there we are sweating it out in, you know, a nice weekend, trying to enjoy everything and it’s so hot. And now, with this SoftStartRV installed in my trailer, I can hook my generator up and turn my air conditioning on anywhere and it works like a champ. It went in easy. I think the total install time was maybe 45 minutes, tested it out and it was flawless. And so I’m really happy to have this product and now I can enjoy a cooler time, and I can camp in those areas where I can get away from everybody and still be very, very comfortable.
