Default A/C unit

Wife called me the other morning and told me the bedroom A/C made some kind of noise in the middle of the night. Said the compressor kept trying to start. It would run for a second or two and then stop...Any ideas what might be wrong this time???

I agree with Don. I had the same problem last fall on a trip out west. I found a mobile tech in Dodge City who replaced it and told me that the model air conditioning I have is notorious for this failure and the manufacturer had redesigned the capacitors. He replaced it and it has worked very well since.

Hi...What caps did you use and what model A/C's do you have? Just asking for I have a 08 T40-B and I can hear the rear A/C having a harder time starting.

Here is an image of my caps...



Thanks

I bought a Dometic Hard start kit made for the Penguin air conditioner that I think most Tour Masters have. They are low profile. I bought it from PPL. It services about 25 models of the Penguin.

As shown above, I have 3 caps. As such I have kind of confused in regards to which one to replace.
