John,

I have been thinking of adding a easy start on my a/c. Is there anyone going to be at rally to install one or maybe just get some help with installation? I am not an electrician.

Mike.

Hey Mike, no one coming that I know of that can handle the easy start for the AC. Ocean Lakes has a good service department and might be able to help. I'm not an electrician either. My motto: ....2 wires hook'em up, 3 wires mess'em up.

My question...If the easy start is so good, why is it not factory installed??

Probably because it costs money...and therefore eats into Thor’s profit. (Being cynical right now, sorry)

It is nice to have but not necessary for most streamers.

I have been looking at it, and the new Beret has a article favoring installation.

I had one installed at Escanaba last year. It works as advertized.

Region 3 rally....Myrtle Beach, SC

We run our 15,000 btu A/C with a Honda 2000 propane...thanks to the easy start. But you won’t need the generator at Region 3!

Hey, hey, nah, nah, kiss him goodbye.

Sue, Cheryl and I are scheduled for Ocean Lakes arriving Tuesday, and leaving Monday. Site 2212 is as close as we could get to the Rally sites.

I requested the time off as a week of vacation, and it was granted! My last day of work before retirement is Sunday April 22, instead of Monday April 30!

Excited to get back to Myrtle Beach, and anxious to see what trouble we can get into at our first Region Rally as WBCCI members.

As a guitarist, I am hoping to find other musicians who may want to get together to jam too.

Phil

Great news, Phil. We will help you celebrate retirement and if you get too rowdy we will just throw you in the ocean to cool you off!

Thanks, Gary, John and Beth. Regarding celebrating, I promise not to drink and drive any vehicle...might have pry the guitar from my hands though.

We had an E-Z Air unit installed at Escabana last Summer and it has added to our RV'ing options. We can stop anywhere and run our A/C off of one Honda EU2000 genset versus two for a few hours of rest, then move on. We think it's one of the more sensible options on our trailer. It's true that it may not be "needed" by many AS'rs, but it's nice to have, don't knock it till you try it!!
