Today I received my hard start capacitor from Amazon
. For the price, I figured what the heck. My A/C is the Coleman-Mach 13.5 that came with the 2016 Jay Flight 28BHBE. The install was straight forward. The wiring diagram stuck to the inside of the electrical box on the roof side of the A/C even has a hard start Capacitor included in their diagram. The model capacitor I ordered has the Positive Thermal Coefficient Resistor (or P.T.C.R in the diagram) and the resistor is connected to the wire lead that has the jumper leg on it. The leg side gets wired with the red wire on the already installed capacitor and the other leg goes with the yellow wire. It took me longer to get the cover for the unit on and off then it did to do the actual install.
With all my beakers off (accept Main and A/C) I fired up my Honda EU2000i Companion and tried to operate as normal. No Go! It caused the generator to overload. I gave it a few minutes, and this time flipped my converter on just long enough to get the generator to start cranking up the RPM's, then I quickly flipped the converter off and the A/C on. SUCCESS!!
While enjoying the A/C running off the Generator, I took off the ceiling cover panel and shook my head in disgust as I noticed the loose piece of form almost completely covering up the intake. Attempting to move the cover to its proper location to secure the foam divider is not possible now because of the install location for an LED light fixture. I tried to move it also but the 2"x2" hole (which is not a circle by the way) would be exposed. I had to settle for taping the divider into position. I also taped up the exposed roof membrane....every little bit helps!
The install was done at home, which is about 4700' elevation. Your milage may vary. I'm going to test it out again this weekend up in the mountains and i'll report back.
