Ok, so good news!
Now, we have talked to the EasyStart™ 364 support several times during installation and they had told us at one point this EasyStart™ 364 would not fix our problem.
First we decided to test out the EasyStart™ 364
with our Mermaid Marine Air
12000 btu unit we have been having the cycling problems with. Now we have fired it up before to make sure the unit worked properly with the EasyStart™ 364 but that is far as we went then.
This time we started the unit and let it run until it reached (cooling) temperature. Then we waited for 4 min and manipulated the temperature (opened hatches and companionway doors etc ) so theA/C would cycle back on.
And then the unit came back on. It turned on the March water pump for cooling and the fan went on. The EasyStart™ 364 has a 5 min timer built in so the compressor did not come on for another minute so that worked fine. Then when the compressor came on we expected the breaker to blow because it was under six minutes. But wait, here is the good news, the breaker did NOT blow!
So we did this test several more times and our problem has gone away!
Somehow the EasyStart™ 364 did solve this problem.
We haven't done the Honda EU2000i generator test yet. When we do we will post the results.
To answer a couple of questions.
We have a 20 amp breaker, recommended size by Mermaid Marine Air.
We had tried wiring the March sea water pump to a 110 plug and plugging it into an outlet and running it separately from the Mermaid Marine Air start-up but it made no difference.
Anyway, it is working great now so the world is a better place and THANK YOU to everyone for your support.
