This summer is a scorcher! Record breaking heat everywhere! So it can be hard to stay cool in your RV. You’ve probably heard of the SoftStartRV. We have one installed on our bedroom A/C unit and it’s worked great over the last year. Helping us to run our A/C with our small solar set up. I know I’ve needed to install more of these on our other air conditioners, but now I’m glad I waited. Watch the full video review here!
Because now there is a better solution! With the SoftStartUP there is no installation. This is the easiest solution. No need to get on the roof. I think this is the best new RV gadget for 2022! Get your SoftStartUP now!
And we like easy! This solves our biggest RV power problems with ONE convenient product.
Full disclosure, Network RV sent us the SoftStartUP (SSUP) to evaluate. We get dozens of offers every week to test out RV products, but we turn down most of them because they are a waste of money. And you don’t need extra crap for your RV. But I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this! Why?
Your RV air conditioning units are power hogs especially during start up! The SoftStartUP reduces the power needed by up to 50%. This allows you to run 2 A/C units on one 30-amp circuit. Don’t you hate it when you are constantly tripping the 30-amp breaker at an RV park or campground, trying to run a couple A/C units plus other appliances? Plus constantly tripping your RV spot’s breaker is bad for your gear to have that hard shut down.
Power management: One SoftStartUP protects your entire RV from bad campground and RV park power fluctuations including undervoltage protection. These are very common problems at RV parks and campgrounds. Plus it’s portable! If you upgrade RVs, you can take it with you!
You might ask: Doesn’t my RV have built in power protection? Most do not, RVs are built cheaply and this kind of protection adds to the cost of the RV. So most manufacturers pass on it.

The SoftStartUP works great for summer boondocking with a smaller generator. We all love free camping or boondocking, but we want our power. This is a great solution if you have a smaller, portable generator, like a little Honda or something similar.
A cool new feature is the SoftStartUP app! With the app, you can do a power audit. You can check all of your appliances to easily see what the draw is so you don’t exceed the available amps. You can also see your overall power usage, for example if you were a month to month renter and had to pay for your power. Maybe you showed up for a partial month and want to make sure the power company is not charging when you were not there.
Why get this with a 50 amp RV?
- If you have a small generator
- Moochdocking on a 15 or 20 amp circuit
- You are at a campground or RV park and get a site with only 20 or 30 amp service, sometimes the 50 amp is bad and doesn’t even work.
- You’ve probably heard me say backups before. You are only as free as the solutions or tools you have available to solve a challenge.
I know some of you will have some very specific questions about your power scenario. Well the folks over at Network RV have posted just a ton of FAQs about this.
Even more benefits:
- Works with your current surge protector and works if you have a SoftStartRV already installed on your A/C units.
- Extends the life of your A/C compressors by reducing heat buildup in the windings.
- You can even use this on the backup generator for your house.
What if the SoftStartUp shuts down to protect your RV? The SoftStartUP will then restart by itself. It will restart at least three times by itself, within 30 minutes. Then, if the problem still persists, then the SSUP goes into a lockout, meaning you need to unplug it and plug it back in. If you have the app, you can reset the SSUP device through the app.
Remember, when you first plug in your SSUP, there will be a short delay before the output turns on. This delay lasts only 45 to 90 seconds.
Pro Tip for Running Two A/Cs On Limited Power:
Focus on running your main A/C. This is the A/C unit that’s going to have the best effect for you and then run the second A/C on only fan. The fan setting takes very little power but still helps to circulate the colder air throughout the rig extremely important when outdoor temperature is very high and heating up the electronics. This also frees up available amps for your other appliances that you may be running.
Again, the SoftStartUP is a gamechanger for RV power issues. It comes with a 2-year warranty and you have 90 days to try it out. Get the best price and save up to $300 off with this link! Cheers to staying cool in your RV!
