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.

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?

Mike, Quick question. Reading some recent reviews from people purchasing on Amazon several state they are/have had problems getting tech support from Soft Start for installation. For me support is critical if I purchase. What are you hearing? Product sounds great.

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?

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

Why don’t the RV manufacturer’s offer soft start as a factory option? I’d much rather pay the cost as part of the upfront cost.

Cost too much this unit is $300 and the air-conditioning companies are fighting against each other to sell their units in the ad that $300 plus their installation fees they would lose money in the long run so they leave it to you
