Plug & Play Soft Starter for RVs, With Built-In Power Surge Protector
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS (Also found in the product box)
Thank you for choosing the SoftStartUp Soft Starter. These directions will help you get the most out of your new unit.
SoftStartUp is simple to use. It operates on a 30-amp power source. For a typical RVer, that is a campground pedestal or a generator/inverter. Red and green lights on the male plug indicate the power status. A green light indicates proper power to the unit. Red and green lights together indicate reversed polarity, so you should locate another power source.
Easy To Install
PLUG SOFTSTARTUP INTO POWER SUPPLY
Green light indicates power supply is safe.
PLUG RV INTO SOFTSTARTUP
Immediately run more appliances and protect against power surges.
POWER PLUG CHECKS SOURCE
SoftStartUp diagnostic circuitry protects electrical system by automatically checking for proper wiring.
Power On, Correct Wiring
OUTPUT PLUG CHECKS POWER TO RV
After 45-60 seconds, the green Output LED will indicate when there is “live” power for the RV.
NOTE: Some SoftStartUp units may not include a green Output LED.
Tips For most efficient operation
MOBILE APP MONITORING
The SoftStartUp Mobile App allows the RV owner to monitor
electrical power usage. Because it shows both “real time” and total usage, this app helps the RV owner not only monitor how much power is being used, it can also help determine if any specific appliance may be causing interrupted power issues. The app measures:
If an RV owner wants to compare power use at different locations, the Resettable Energy function lets the RVer record the power used at one location before resetting the SoftStartUp to use at the next location.
The SoftStartUp Mobile App is Bluetooth®-enabled and is available in popular app stores for Android and iOS devices.
ALL WARNINGS AND SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
SHOULD BE ADHERED TO.
If cleaning is required, unplug the SoftStartUp from the power source. Use a dry cloth to wipe the unit housing and cables. Dry completely before plugging back in.
Do not place the SoftStartUp near heat sources such as stoves, grills or open fires.
This unit should be plugged DIRECTLY into the power source. Only use extension cords FROM the RV to the SoftStartUp, NOT from the SoftStartUp to the power source. Plug the SoftStartUp unit directly into the power source. This way, it can better monitor any surge in electrical current.
The SoftStartUp should be repaired or replaced if any of the following has occurred:
Power plugs have been damaged.
It does not appear to operate normally.
The outer housing has been damaged or is broken.
To avoid risk of electric shock or fire, do not attempt to open or alter the unit in any way.
No user serviceable parts are inside this unit.

* Review the Amps/Watts you have available vs. the Amps/Watts of the appliances you want to operate (e.g. If the A/C compressor is running 1300 watts and you have a 2200-watt generator that RUNS at 1900 watts, then you only have 600 watts available (with your A/C consuming 1300 watts).
A 2200-watt generator normally provides about 1900 running watts.
Heat increases the amps/watts of some appliances and decreases the performance of your generator.
Extension cord length and wire size affect the amps/watts: shorter cords and larger wire sizes are better.
Altitude decreases generator efficiency by an estimated 3.5% per 1000 ft.
