I am attempting to put a hard start capacitor in my 2001 SD 17. There are instructions included but my existing capacitors look different than the illustrations which appear to be for a later model Casita. My A/C unit is a Coleman Mach but I'm not sure which one, the codes inside are completely gone. When there are 3 capacitors, I understand it includes a run capacitor, a start capacitor and a fan capacitor. I believe I'm to replace the start capacitor with the new one. I have two round capacitors, a shorter and taller one and a short oval one. I assume the short oval one may be the fan capacitor - it has 2 brown wires connected to it that go into the main body of the A/C unit. The instructions refer to reattaching red and yellow wires. I have a yellow wire going to the short round capacitor and both a red and yellow wire going to the tall round capacitor with a white wire going between the two capacitors. Pictures below. Anyone have any ideas on which one I replace? Also some instructions seem to indicate it matters which wire goes where while others do not. Does it matter? Thanks for any help available!!!
