I wired all three of my EasyStarts into my RV rooftop A/C units. Then I did my 5 learning starts on shore power. The A/C is working great.
Does that mean that my wiring is done right before I leave for my trip, or do I need to test my A/C on the generator first?
You can often start and run on shore power even if your wiring is not 100% perfect. We always recommend that you test your EasyStart-wired A/C on the generator you plan to use with the A/C. But we can tell you this: EasyStart software programs compressor starts allowable not more often than once every 5 minutes. It’s a feature we installed to protect your A/C compressor. To test whether your wiring is right, try this.
After your 5 learning starts, set the A/C to a desired temperature and allow it to reach set point. Then, set the temperature immediately to the lowest setting. If your A/C starts in a couple of minutes, your wiring isn’t 100% correct. A “do over” is in order. Using our EasyStart’s new transparent cover and its diagnostic lights, you can diagnose the problem right away and set things right.
Of course, the direct test of A/C units run on generator is the most fool proof.
