So is it safe to say that provided you get one that meets the specifications for the power requirements for your A/C unit, it could work?
The models that I was looking at online had a relay as you mentioned and required no user input once installed. Again as you said, there are a few models out there and you must get the right one.
If the start current
of the A/C compressor is the only thing holding back the Honda
2000, then maybe this is the solution.
I hope this works, I'm going to look into it more for next summer
