The Micro Air switch/controller is now installed, but used the help of a good electrical/Aircon Guy to help do it. Alone, I would have never got the switch to work.
I have not connected the heater function because needed a Triac switch, and I didn't have one. Didn't know about the required switch until during installation.
The other thing I didn't know.. You have to use the old Run Cap for the Fan Motor. The fan will not run with out it, and I believe it should go in series with the brown wire. Yes, I believe the brown wire is connected to the end of the run cap, and the other end of the run cap is connected to the Micro Air control box. This, I would have never known given the instructions.
Also, you have to use the Start Cap, and the Run Caps for the compressor. But this is shown in the documentation.
The controller is working great, but have not figured out how to use the switch over wifi. Very, Very Happy with the current set up now, and everything functioning good so far...

Glad to hear you arrived at the same conclusion. We must have been talking to these vendors at the same time. I've opted not to get the soft-start as I don't think I have one now and it works fine. I'm told the FX-2 can be configured with a delayed start, replacing the timer module in the existing system. I look forward to hearing how it works out for you, but I'm going to place my order today on faith that it will work :) There's a two-week lead time and winter is fast approaching up here.
Thank you for the photos and diagrams! I was very sorry to hear of the loss of your boat, and I'm very glad you're still active in this community. Your posts have helped me invaluably as a new owner.
