AC Question - Boost capacitor for window unit run by small generator
I recently changed the AC on my camper from a 5,000 BTU to 6,000 BTU. The old one ran fine powered by my Honda 2000 generator, even on ECO setting. The new one won't start the compressor with generator on ECO setting. It tries, then something inside the AC senses low voltage and keeps compressor from even trying to turn on until unit is turned off and back on.
It will run fine with generator on Normal (ECO off). I can switch to ECO after compressor comes on, and it will keep running, but after next cycle it won't restart.
Will one of these "booster capacitors" fix this? Any way to wire that to the power cord so I don't have to remove AC from wall to install it? Not a typical installation, sort of permanent.
