Can this model parallel with a smaller generator or do they have to be the same size?
Larry 
from Texas 
April 14, 2017
Answer
Yes, the 100261 can parallel with other 2800 to 3500 watt inverters that have the parallel outlets on the unit.  Older models like 75531i and 75537i do NOT offer parallel outlets and cannot be paralleled. However, we launched a number of new 2800 to 3500w inverters this year with the parallel outlets on the panel....all these units can be parallel with one another....just make sure the other models offer the parallel outlets.
+
Do the generators have to be the same wattage or can they differ?
Greg 
from Texas 
March 04, 2017
Answer
This parallel cable will work with any champion 2800 to 3500 watt unit that has a parallel connection on the control panel. The units can be different wattage as long as it falls in between the range listed.

How do I start this generator using the wireless remote?
J. S. 
from Michigan 
January 12, 2017
Answer
Wireless remote starting is only possible within 80 feet of the generator. (Wireless signal may not pass through some solid objects.) Do not attempt to adjust the carburetor choke. The remote and electric system will automatically close and open the choke.
1. Make certain the generator is on a flat, level surface.
2. Turn off all electrical loads connected to the generator. Never start or stop the generator with electrical devices turned on.
3. Turn the Fuel Valve to the “ON” position.
4. Press the Battery Switch to “ON”.
5. Press the Ignition Switch to “ON”.
6. WIRELESS REMOTE START: press and release the “START” button on the handheld Remote Control device. DO NOT hold the button down, only press the button once. The engine will attempt to start six times.
7. If the generator fails to start, check the battery condition and cable connections.

can this generator be setup to run duel fuel (gas/propane) and still have the remote start?
Ev 
from Massachusetts 
June 30, 2016
Answer
This generator is designed to run on gas only. If you try to convert it to another gas you would void the warranty of the unit.

If you are interested in converting this unit we would recommend calling Champion at 877-338-0999.

Thank you
