I wonder how long the warranty is for the air conditioner. The warranty that PC provides ends once the original purchaser sells the unit. Since I'm second owner, I have no warraty with PC.Rob... please let us know if/when you install one. I have a 2552 with 50AMP. If I hook up to 30AMP I can only run 1 AC. Looks like if I have the softstart on both ACs I could run them both with a 30AMP hookup.
This probably isn't very helpful, but the Houghton AC's have a built in soft start. They use software for to control the condensing fan, evaporator fan and compressor. It actually stages the 3 pieces. It brings on the compressor, than the condensing fan and then the evaporator. When temp is reached it cycles off compressor then condensing fan. It leaves the evaporator fan running until the next call for cooling. This is one benefit, the other is that it doesn't sound like a jet engine when its operating, very quite.
Thatís info direct from Frank, their shop manager. Basically the air speed moving the fans while driving at highway speeds would affect the fans balanced speed. Iím sure he would explain it better but thatís the jist of it. He did say it wouldnít hurt the unit, just wouldnít work. How it come up in conversation is when I saw a advanced rv unit that had another brand installed. Not sure of the brand but it might have been Coleman. Frank told me in cases where people want to run their roof ac while driving the houghton wouldnít be the best choice. In my case thatís not an issue however I have read where owners of larger rigs need to run the roof ac while under way. Hope thatís helps
