Look for motor rebuilding shops in your area.  They should stock appropriate values at 130 VAC for pretty good prices.

Wanted: AC Capacitor - 16 to 20 uf

I am needing a capacitor for power factor correction.  I added a new compressor refrigerator to our motor home and find it has a 0.50 power factor.  Since it will be powered by an inverter much of the time, I would like to get the power factor up to where it should be.  It appears I will need about 16 to 20 uf.

This capacitor must be capable of taking 125 VAC on a continuous basis.  Probably an oil filled cap with a 600 volt or higher rating will do the job.
