It was a Dometic Cruise Air unit, A/C only no reverse cycle heat, Was easy to install and worked GREAT!
Thanks, we cant wait for summer to try out the new boat.

Brian41,
I am acually the guy who asked you about the Pasport I/O. I am bouncing between two options 1---your 10k unit($1000+shipping) ,a new Passport I/O unit as it is not compatible with my Passport II aparently ($200-$300) and hard start kit apparently (another $250)=about $1700.00. or trying to use a used 5k units control box (110v) that is for sale(for about $400) with my current 7k unit (which is 220v) . A guy from Dometic in Florida said that will work in an email ,I'll have to talk to him before commit thought.

I just jumped on the 10btu unit brian had for sale on ebay. I found a passport I/O for sale and that just leaves the hard start kit. I think the 10k kits come with one, but is the $250 hard start kit an upgrade?if so what part # if possible. Mike

Update, I got the 10k A/C unit from member Brian41. I got a Passport I/O control panel, a hard start kit and a 15' cable from e-bay. (The cable is just for testing outside the boat, as a normal dsl cat5 cable is wired backwards.) I hooked a fan up to the circuit board to simulate the load of the water pump on the boat, and ran the the whole thing on my EU2000i . Works great AND may even run on eco mode.The boat is out getting fuel lines run right now.but will install as soon as I get it back. I may post a small video on youtube of the a/c running on my tool cart-stay tuned.Mike

How long did you let it run? The 2000 will normally run the 10k unit for about 1 hour and then the pressures build up and then it will kick out the overlaod on the gen.
You did install the HARD START kit correct? If so you can use the eco control.

Excursion, I ran it for about 35 min.It ran fine. It did't want to restart (cycle) on Eco mode after it ran for a while though . No problem otherwise in non-eco mode. The hardstart was put in parallel with the run capacitor. I unplugged the stock start cap (tiny littly disc about 1 1/2" in diameter and 1/4' tall) as instructed by the guy at dometic but I guess I could leave it plugged in? The hard start capacitor I got was an aftermarket one(Supco SPP5).Mike

Disconnect the little stock capacitor, you do not want both inline.
You should be ok.

That website is actually CruiseNComfortUSA.com. If anybody has any questions about our units or any A/C questions please ask.
