what about a comparison between a Micro-Air and SoftStart. From what I've read, SoftStart uses the same technology as Micro-Air. I know SoftStart has been putting a lot of money into promotion, but does really make it an improvement over Micro-Air?

With this technology could I run the air conditioner off of a solar panel? How can I add more batteries to my RV or an "boat A/B" switch to run longer? Who can I trust to provide honest answers?

If I am moochdocking and have a SoftStart what type of extension cord will I need. 10 Gauge? Does it need to be a 20 amp and not a 15 amp? I have a 30 amp Wonder. Please advise.

Why don’t all air conditioners have soft start technology built in already?

I have a Dometic Penguin with a Heat pump (don't know about a relay) model number 651816HXX1C0-01. I was interested in getting a SoftstartRv to allow me to use my Atima 2000Y (2000 Watt Generator). I was just on the phone with Andrea at Dometic to confirm this is safe for my new A/C (installed in July of 2021). Andrea started "DO NOT install this on your A/C as it will Void my 2 year warranty). I was surprised, as I was very interested in being able to run the A/C on my motorhome off a more quiet (compared to the 4000watt Onan Generator in my motorhome) and more fuel efficient Yamaha 2000Watt generator.
