This gen does a great job with my RV. Powers everything including the A/C. I hear the champ 2000 has the blue guy motor. It sure is odd this gen is 171cc's and what do you know, so does the blue guys 3,000 watt gen. Started right up out of the box, first pull! And an added bonus that its about a third of the red guy. I highly recommend! If I had any negatives it would be the wheels are a little close to the ground and don't work well on gravel. For the price, this is still a great deal.
I haven't used this on my camper yet, but I know it will work just fine. I was using a 3500 watt open frame Champion before and thought it was time to go with a quiet gen. It came well packaged, I put oil in, did the break in as recommended by the manual and all is well. Not quite as quiet as my friends red gen, but it's very close and half the cost. Although this will run my camper with 13,500btu A/C, I am planning on getting another one to parallel with, you know, just in case. That will let me run at 6200 watts continuous for the same cost as a 3000 watt competitor. Nice!!
Ordered and received in 3 days; put the recommended on in 10W 30 motor oil and started on the first pull. Owner's manual is great and it has every part # listed in the manual with illustrations. Great job Champion! It's nice to get a complete owner's manual when most are very lacking. Generator is fine and it is not loud at all. (And pray tell what generator doesn't make some noise?) We also have the top end generator starting with "H" the 2000...not much difference in the noise levels. This runs very smooth and doesn't sound like running lawn mower that needs a new spark plug! LOL...Why would you spend over 1K more for the same red "H" generator is beyond me? We will use this for recreational trips. Thanks Overstock!
Started right up. Took it camping at elevations greater than 6000 feet this past week. Purred right long with the other generators at camp. It was only a tiny bit louder than the more expensive red generators. That being said our Champion was also twice that watts! Such a great buy, especially with the extra coupon I found. FYI- the generator sent to us was grey and black not yellow. Its called the " Category 5" by Champion. It was renamed and color change for sale at northern tool. After research we found out it is in fact the same generator. The black/grey color combo is nice too. The color and name are the only difference. We would highly recommend this generator.
