I think some of the confusion regarding the SmartStart would be answered by looking at the link in post number 9 above (Honda eu2000i and air conditioning). The second post in the link is post 22 and is an article by M. Giovanetti who is the Director of Technology for Dometic Marine. He did an extensive test of the SmartStart and the Honda EU2000i.

I spoke with Dometic customer service today and was told that the installation of the Smart Start on my six month old Penguin 15K BTU ac would void my warranty. Seems kind of silly since both are Dometic products. So I guess I will have to wait until the warranty expires before adding the Smart Start.

Digging through the older threads on the subject of ACs to find info, I wanted to post that just recently (2015) I updated my start capacitor and PTCR as per Dometic's standard part numbers and found them to be more robust than the OEM build. I triple checked by contacting two service centers and Dometic directly to find that they upgraded the start capacitor and PTCR for my 11K unit. It is NOT the hard start solution but simply a betterment.
