Boyfriend Really Loves It! Best Christmas Present He Received
Ordered it for him for Christmas he really loves it easy starting and enough wattage to run things in the house in case of power outage. They are predicting ice and snow in our areas for tonight. I feel good knowing that I even with power outage can still have a hot bath and hot food.

Specs
We bought this generator because of the specs for the dimensions so it would fit in our storage area on our R.V. When we got the generator it was taller than what it said on the computer..We then bought a wheel kit so we can move it into a storage shed that is a ways away from our unit..We know it is a good generator as we used our son in laws for a week when our other one went out...

Jolene,
Sorry to hear that the dimensions were slightly off on this model. While we try to be as accurate as possible, there are times that errors occur. The dimensions that we have for this model match what Champion has on their site also.

Storm
Bought it in October 2011, runs great won't run my air compressor 1.5hp. 17gal. But that's okay, use it when lights go out. It works good for that we have a storm coming here in south Georgia, northeast Florida, so I will need it shortly.

Good Job
We purchased the generator to power our camper while out on trips. We just do check all the fluids and 1 pull later it's running like a champ. It powers the camper with no problem. Overall we're very pleased with it.

I Recommend
We purchased the generator to supply our trailer. It does a good job of that. It has about 50 hours on it now at elevations up to 9500' and temps from the mid-thirties to about 100F. After the first couple of starts during the break-in, the first five hours before the first oil change, it starts on the first pull no matter the temp or altitude. The only issue, and it is a very minor one, is that it rattles when under a high load.

We were fishing at about 6000' and in the afternoon it was in... more

Good For My Use
I bought this generator for use with my RV trailer. It runs the AC with a slight bogging of the rpm when the unit first kicks on. But it is minimal. I was surprised this unit is as quiet as it is. Not as quiet as a Honda, but certainly not that bad. If I am in a campground, I plug in. If I am BOONDOCKING I use the generator. So the noise level isn't as much of a problem for me as it might be for others, as I don't normally have any neighbors, or am in a noisy parking lot or rest area... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Price, I'd Buy It Again
