Easy Start installation?

Does anyone have any experience with installing an EasyStart on a 15,000 Btu air conditioner (Coleman Mach 15) ? I've gotten hints that it won't fit inside the cover and was wondering if anyone has tried. Or if they installed it outside, where and how did they fasten it?

I installed one on a 13.5 and it was tight, I moved a few components around to fit it in the controls section. With a little additional work maybe 10 to 15 minutes, it can be installed outside of the control section. An access hole and grommit would need to be done and then sealed up once the easy start installation is finished. The install took about 20 minutes including prep and cleanup (on and off of the roof) very easy to install if you have electrical DIY capabilities.

So you managed to get the unit inside of the electrical box. And if that doesn't fit it sounds like I should be able to maybe fit it on the otherside of wall. But wouldn't have to go totally outside of the cover. Right?

Yes, that is what I meant. On the inside of the plastic shroud but on the inside rear wall of the sheet metal framing, beside the condenser. Right on the other side of the sheet metal would be the electrical connection box. Just a side note, I measured the peak startup draw and is was 23 to 24 amps, once this was installed and completed the 5 compressor start setup, it is now a 9 amp peak draw. It runs in ECO mode on my 2K champion genny now.

Put mine on a Penguin 2 low profile, no problem. Use VHB tape to secure it.

I was able to get the unit wedged in the electrical box on my 13.5k btu unit but it was really tight. After the 5 learning starts I am able to run it with my Champion 2000 watt in Econo mode. Once started it pulls about 11 amps. Very simple and straightforward install - took me longer to figure out how to cram it in the box than to make the actual wiring connections.

I installed a MicroAir Easy Start on my Coleman low profile 15.5K AC. I didn't take pictures but the installation was pretty straight forward and there was adequate room for the module and associated wiring.

A lot easier than working in the engine compartment of most small cars today.
