Micro-Air EasyStart™ Soft Starters

Just wondering how many have installed these in their RV's and the results?
https://www.microair.net/collections...-soft-starters

I installed the 364 on my 28BHBE and can run the AC, Hot water heater and TV all on 1 Yamaha 2000 EF2000iS. However, it does run at a much higher power setting than when I am running both in parallel mode.
During the night, I turn off the hot water heater so the only thing running is my AC (I keep the fan running on low so the AC don't cycle quite as often) and a couple night lights. I can get 6-8 hours on 2.2 gallons of gas (both generators running in parallel and each has 1.1 gallons of gas).

Best thing I did so far. Love it.

Put one in my 13.5 a couple months ago and love it. There's a couple threads on this including some before/after current readings I posted. Was using it just yesterday in the Florida sun. I really like running in ECO without the brief drop in voltage when the compressor kicks in and not needing to go fill up the tank at 4AM.

I like this. I wish they had an installation video so I can see if I can do the install myself before laying down 300 smackers.

It is easy if you can follow the schematic that comes with it and the wiring diagram on the inside of the AC metal sidewall.

I was slow and it took me about 45 minutes to do. Important REMEMBER to unplug the 30 or 50 amp cord and discharge the capacitors before you start.

Use AIRSTREAM (all upper case) in the coupon box and get $40.00 off.

Micro-air says a Champion 2000W will not work with their equipment. Anyone have experience this inverter and system?

I own a pair of these inverters plus the duplex adapter. Would be able to just haul one unit.
