Smaller Size, Easier Installation: Kick Off Summer With A Softstarter

With the official start of the summer RVing season looming, it’s time to take care of the little details we put off after shutting down the RV in the fall. One of those details is planning ahead to keep cool in your RV over the summer, and installing an A/C softstarter in each air conditioning unit is a terrific start.

What is a softstarter and why would I want one?

An A/C softstarter, like the ones offered by SoftStartRV, makes it possible to start one or more air conditioning units on less power. Trying to run two A/C units on the 30-amps typically supplied by many campgrounds, state parks, and national parks can be a challenge. Although the 30-amp supply is sufficient to run the items in your RV, getting a second A/C started on 30-amps can be difficult, due to the initial startup load required to get that second unit going.

For you 50-amp folks, an A/C softstarter will still cut down the starting load needed for that third or fourth air conditioning unit you may have. This can prevent your automatic load controller from having to temporarily shed a load to get another unit going, thus preventing the temporary loss of another service or function.

Air conditioner units on RVs are getting smaller and smaller. In response, SoftStartRV has updated their softstarter to be 40% smaller than the previous model. This should allow you to install it under the hood of any A/C unit on your RV’s roof.

How hard are they to install?

With SoftstartRV’s new 6-Step No Cut, No Splice Installation, nearly any RVer should be able to install a softstarter in each air conditioning unit. There is also a great new updated installation video available. 

Where can I buy a SoftStartRV?

SoftStartRV devices are available at Every SoftStartRV comes with a free bonus installation kit, a free 90-day trial, a free Extended 2-Year Warranty (requires registration), and free shipping on all orders to the USA and Canada.

You’ll need one for each air conditioner on your RV, so buy now and save on multiple quantities. Stay cool this summer with SoftStartRV.

  1. I have a 2001 Winnebago Adventurer 35U with residential AC from the factory. Will SoftStart work on this unit? Any additional info I might need?
