Discharge capacitors on out-of-the -box airconditioner?
I am ready to install my new Penguin 11 air conditioner. Dometic instructions for installing the new power module board say to discharge capasitors using a discharge tool before installing new board.
Question: Why would that be necessary on a new out on the box air conditioner that has not been connected to power? I cant find a capacitor discharge tool any where ( Lowes, Home Depot, etc. ) Dometic warns against using a screw driver. I just don't see why it would be necessary on a new install.
