Below 108V damage can be done to induction motors...A/C Unit Fan/Compressor are induction motors.

When CG AC Voltage drops below 108V I provide my own AC power via generator.

OR leave!


Is it time for your medication or mine?

You need a Hughes Autoformer for 10 percent boost.

If you are not running the air then I would not worry.

And voltage in the RV is still 105? Maybe you need two [emoticon]
If I am using my booster it is just for the air. Everything else is battery and propane.

I would make sure the plug and receptacle aren't getting hot from their own voltage drop.
