I really don't have any issues. I just thought the hard start capacitor would make it a little easier on the generators.

I was thinking about installing a hard start capacitor to see if this would allow the Yamaha EF2000iS (parallel) in the "eco mode" to allow the AC to run.
Excatly what I am hoping. Gas last a lot longer if you can run them in eco mode.

I would think that eco mode would only come into play when the air conditioner shuts off. When the air conditioner is actually running there would be no difference regardless of mode setting.

In most of the places we camp in the south, once you turn on the a/c it never goes off until you depart.

Ain't that the truth!

Soft-Start

These are microprocessor controlled aftermarket kits that allow small generator starting capabilities for A/C compressors. On another RV forum that I frequent, there have been reports of successfully starting and running 13.5K A/C's with a 2400W Inverter Genset running in eco mode. I do not have either of these installed on my 5er.

Hoenwald48,
If the AC is running and you switch from full load into eco mode it will keep running at full load. Once the AC shuts off and then generator runs in the "eco mode" the generator doesn't have enough time to get back up to full load once the AC begins to start and draw the power.

These sound like they are mini frequency drives. Is that correct?
