Can anyone tell me what brand A/C the 171BH or any of the Micro’s use? Any additional info would be great, such as model #, etc. I’m starting to look for options for powering the camper off grid. Thanks!

As JayLo says its the Furrion AC. I would strongly recommend getting a softstart and wiring it in yourself (if you have any skills, its not hard some YouTube vids as well on how to) but then you can use most generators that are 2000w or higher to save space in the truck or trailer.

Softstart I purchased was from here, https://www.hutchmountain.com/collec...ner-soft-start

I got the Bluetooth model, only did this because I like to geek out on data and see what is going on etc... but works great with my Honda EU2200i. I have the 166fbs model and took out the outside min-fridge and store the generator in there along with some other items.

I was planning on putting in a soft start when I bought my 166FBS, but reading the specs on the unit, it came with one in it. The model installed in my 2022 is a FACR14SA-PS. It is supposed to have one installed from the factory. Running it on my generator (Yamaha 3000SEB), it never left eco mode. I have a Honda 2200 on order and will wait until I have run it on that before deciding if more help is needed.

That is the exact unit on our trailer, I am not sure about a built in soft start. When connected to our 15amp house plug after a few starts it would pop the breaker. I never tried it on the generator knowing this and got the soft start. Now on the house it will run and run and run and gets really cold! Never popping the breaker.

Now with a smaller generator you do have to remember that you are limited on wattage and cannot run the AC and Microwave at the same time or a hair dryer etc... But simple enough to turn things on/off or wait..
