A/C Softstart install 2001 Winnebago

I have basement air in my 2001 Winnie. I am installing soft starts. I know where the wires on softstart go, but what do I do with wires on the air conditioner that go to hard start?

I don't know how we can possibly answer your question with the information you've provided. Got any model info about your "2001 Winnie" or even about what Softstart you're installing - there are multiple brands and models.

It is a Coleman Mach in the basement 1976-H119.
The soft start is a Wangning.

First question is... what is a 1976 H119?

I found the Wangning soft starts on Amazon and they have instructions for multiple A/C models. The listing says:

Quote:
We offer installation manuals covering most types of air conditioning compressors, including detailed descriptions of wiring diagrams for models 450XX, 452XX, 470XX, 472XX, 480XX, 482XX.
But I see no online info for this chinese soft-start and no direct website for support.

I found one installation of a different softstart on a basement A/C in an RV. It's a super long shot... but maybe it will help somehow.

Two hard-start caps are OEM for RVP basement units. There is very little difference between a hard-start cap and a soft-start unit. Both accomplish the same thing in a different way. Since both compressors will not run on 30A (the Intellitec Powerline EMS prevents that) and there is no need for soft-starts on 50A service, IMO you are doing an expensive mod that has no purpose.


To reply to your question about the wiring, if it isn't covered in the installation instructions That is a question for the seller of the device. Failing that I would return them to Amazon and use the money on a trip.
