Brent I read your post about your soft start and I may have the missing paperwork for yours. Mine is the ESS (Electronic Soft Start) sold by HEECO out of Brooks, KY. I am very interested in the name of the tech that repairs yours for future reference. Richard Kennedy, 501-514-4842. I will text them to you if you want. Call me and let me know.
