    ↓Episode 64 Why You Need a Micro-Air Easy Start for Your RV A/C

    ↓Episode 64 Why You Need a Micro-Air Easy Start for Your RV A/C

    In episode 64 Eric discusses the Micro Air EasyStart, a product that makes an air conditioner start easier and allows it to run on a smaller generator. It's a newer product that works well at what it does and can potentially save you the hassle of getting a larger generator. It helps eliminate the issues of the AC coming on while using other electrical appliances and tripping the breaker. It can also allow you to run 2 ACs on a 30 amp cord with just a 2,000 watt generator! Eric also gives advice on installation and the importance of taking pictures before beginning any replacement or installation. Definitely a product to look into to save you a ton of time, hassle, and ultimately comfortability.

Always speaks the Truth

Eric Stark’s perspective as an RV parts dealer/technician is a valuable resource for anyone who has ever turned a wrench on their rig. As a factory technician I find his tutorials to be straightforward and easy to follow. He doesn’t get too deep into the weeds with technical talk and keeps a realistic mindset that most customers will choose a cost effective route when faced with complex issues. Whether that means repairing something or replacing it he is always honest about advocating products he sells/uses.

Over the years I’ve listened to his Podcasts (albeit few and far between) and find myself wanting to purchase something from his company vs. typical online channels. This guy actually called me once in response to an email I had about awning care, something his company makes in-house. I think that kind of professionalism and personal touch is lacking in today’s online ordering routine. I bought a $900 heat pump and never heard a peep from a supposed family owned company, I ask this dude a question and get a direct call!

Anyways if you’re interested in RV repair and maintenance Eric’s show is the most authentic out here. He has probably covered all the major basics and a few where they’re more specialized but for the most part they all stand the test of time in terms of offering applicable information.
