      Starts easily and runs very smoothly, noise is allowable in state parks, is not at the noise level of a small 1000watt model. The neutral ground requires a wire ground to a spike in the ground, or a grounding plug from the rv. I replaced the gfi in side the trailer with a regular receptacle to solve the neutral grounding issue.

      I have this hooked up to my house for those extended days of no power and it runs like a dream and doesnt bog down with things like air conditioner and refrigerator turned on. I bought a wheel kit and cover for this and store it under my porch and it still looks new. It doesnt run 240v, just 120v. Thats a major bummer, but its super quiet, looks nice and does the job. I would recommend this unit to anyone looking for a generator. Just keep in mind that no 240 power means no dryer, stove ect. That can be a big issue for extended outages.

      We received our purchase very quickly and was packaged well. We have used it a couple of times now on our camper . Very happy with the power it provides, it runs all appliances, on our 22' camper. Started up easily and is quiet. We are very happy that we went to overstock. We will visit your site again, without reservation.

      It came on time and the box looked like it had been damaged by water at sometime. After opening the box, I found the plastic bag that held all the paper work open. The bottom had been neatly cut open. The manual and registration card were laying on the top of the generator. The manual had water damage and the preprinted registration card was for a different model. All accessories were there. After looking over the generator and finding no damaged parts, I added the oil and Fuel. It started on the first pull. The generator ran with no problems. I was able to run the AC, Microwave, water pump and Refrigerator in my trailer all at the same time easily. I checked the sound level with out a load, from three feet, 74Db, not 68Db as on the box. Overall a nice generator for the price.

      When I first decided to buy a generator I purchased a HF Predator that was nothing but trouble, it refused to start when hot. After doing some research and finding out that Champion is a legitimate company who makes a quality product, has US based customer service and stocks parts for what they sell, I decided to give them a try. My Champion starts on the first pull every time and generates quiet efficient electricity, couldn't be happier. Saved over $*** by buying it from Overstock!

      Used my new Genet to run power to my new travel trailer. It ran all electrical components including the 15k a/c rooftop unit without any problems. Couldn't beat it for the price. Champion does make a great generator. Thanks for carrying this product.

      Verified Purchase

      This is my second Champion 4000, it is a great machine for the money. I use it when camping for my RV, charging batteries, running AC, microwave. I leave in the bed of my truck and with the tail gate closed it is quieter and out of reach of potential thieves when it's off. It is heavy at dry 106 lbs, but that can help keep people from stealing it as it sits in front of my fifth wheel hitch. Has nice anti vibration rubber mounts on the feet and a bar that surrounds the whole unit. Great unit!
