Yep, several with really positive reviews from their own personal experience - do a search. No "magic" at all, just solid engineering.

do a search. lots of info on the micro air. My experience over the past year.

1) it is very easy to install,
2) at 4000ft my honda 2000 in eco mode easily starts the coleman MachIII 13.5K BTU AC unit. ramps up to near full rpm with the AC running
3) the micro air will NOT reduce running current. So..... by somewhere around 4,000-6000 ft density altitude the my honda 2000 will trip out on overload after about 15 minutes. Now the new 2200 we shall see. 2000 went to our son, I have the 2200 with (a) 200 more running VA and (b) a 20% bigger motor. May solve the high altitude problem.

Soundguy, do you have ACTUAL experience, or did you just want to say something?

Oh, I did a search and found a lot of "my friend", I was looking for ACTUAL EXPERIENCE by real users, and received one, thanks.

Looks like some actual users here. Although I personally do not have actual experience, I do have experience in searching for relevant posts.

Hi,

I have the microair unit installed. It is much easier on the demands of starting the roof air. I wish the time delay for the initial start of the compressor were a little longer. Other than that, I'm a happy camper.

Before I had the microair, my autoformer would boost the voltage in "mid start". Now, with the same shore power supply the autoformer doesn't boost in mid start.

When running on a Yamaha 2800 sIEB I can run in eco mode (but I could do that before with the hybrid inverter/charger in the mix)

If I had to choose between the autoformer and the microair I'd pick the autoformer every time.

The bottom line is the microair works as advertised. I'm not certain I'd buy one again because I prefer the autoformer.


Regards, Don
My ride is a 28 foot Class C, 256 watts solar, 556 amp hours of AGM in two battery banks 12 volt batteries, 3000 watt Magnum hybrid inverter, Sola Basic Autoformer, Microair Easy Start.

Well E-X-C-U-S-E ME for offering to help. [emoticon]

And if it helps any I did have extensive email dialogue with the chief design engineer of the Micro-Air Easy Start Soft Starter and understand fully the design concept and execution. [emoticon]

I have one works as advertised, easy install, no issues in the last two years, much lower startup surge, can start my A/C off my Magnum Inverter if I want.
