Honda eu2000i and Air Conditioning

Just heard about a new product from Dometic. It's called a SmartStart controller. It reduces the amount of amps needed to start an air conditioner by 65%. I spoke to a tech from Dometic, who seemed to think, that a Honda 2000 could run a 16,000 btu Cruisair a/c. The cost for this unit is about $360. Sounds interesting. Sure would keep my wife "happy". Has anyone heard anything about this. It's only been available a few months.

Can't help you with the 16,000 btu unit, but I can tell you that we installed an 8,000 btu Marine Air Systems Vector Turbo about two months ago and installed a SmartStart Controller. We can easily run the unit on our Honda EU2000i. With the Honda running on "economy mode", it only runs a little faster than idle to start and run the a/c or heat.
