Re: Forgot more than I know

that's pretty damn spot on !
I was trying to correlate why you wanted the condenser misted .
Now I know.
As far as the fans, I could use a 30 amp relay and tie the coil voltage for that relay
to the hot compressor wire and feed the fans from straight B+ voltage across that relay

Re: Forgot more than I know

Re: Forgot more than I know

I have some more input. Had the car parked in the big garage because of fake hurricane. we had no winds and zero rain. we are only 10 miles from the open Atlantic Ocean.

I just took it out for a drive and I can feel the temp from the vent relating to the compressor shutting off and then back on in light to light traffic and hard ...
