RV Air Conditioner Soft Start Units

New here to irv2 and have many questions. First, about AC soft start add-ons. Have read much of the information. Granted, most of the info is provided by the sellers and people with a vested interest in selling these, but the science looks sound and they make convincing arguments. My question is, if these soft start units are the greatest thing since sliced bread (or red wine, or Cheetos), why don’t the A/C manufacturers simply incorporate soft start into their units as they are manufactured? It would seem that for the cost of parts, they could gain a competitive and marketing edge.

They don't incorporate them because they are not needed on a properly powered AC.

The soft start devices allow them to start with less then expected power, like a small generator or badly wired campground.

The faster the start of the AC compressor the less heat it will develop. The ramp up of power isn't helping the compressor, its helping the inadequate power source.
