    @flyfishrockies, I sat down with my buildsheet and went through and then located the manuals online, and then printed them out and created a three ring binder. I can find stuff online, but with the binder I don't have to worry about spotty cell service or dead batteries. Anything I buy gets added, along with any serious mods.

      howson Howard, Thanks for making that change. ncitro forwarded a copy of the manual to em also and I think him as well. I can now see the attachment, at least for the time being. I had to log out as you suggested, go into account settings, review everything and save it, log out, log in then saw everything including sig lines. Quite the improvement. So I guess no one has come to a conclusion on the soft/easy start question. I will say that our Furrion 14.5 does start on the generator much better then the Coleman of old did.

      Thank You very much.

        The problem is the current draw spike on start up happens so quickly your typical clamp meter will not catch the peack amp draw or at best will average it out. The only real way to test it would be with an oscilloscope.

          You're right. The EasyStart video shows a meter the presenter created to record the startup spike.

            I have looked at my Colman Mach units and I do not see any softstarts on them. I am guessing it is only on certain models

              I wish I had the Rvairflow on mine. I guess my 2021 was to early in production before they started adding them or forgot due to part shortage
