  1 Question
Q: can this generator be setup to run duel fuel (gas/propane) and still have the remote start?
by Ev from Massachusetts on June 30, 2016

A: 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

Perfect Generator!
Like many of you reading this, I shopped online and read reviews in my down time till I was blue in the face. I have a 33' Toy Hauler that gets a lot of use dry camping at motocross races and though the 5500 watt Generac I have is a great unit for emergency home use, it was far, far too loud for camping. Not to mention annoying other campers who spent the $$ for a quiet Gen.

I set out with my sights on a red or blue generator since many of my race buds use them and they are obviously top... more
Pros: Exceeded Expectations, Price, Features, Quiet
Cons: The Only Downside That I Have Found Is The Wheel Design As Severa

Works Great For Its Price
I looked at getting 2 Hondas and run together for my rv, purchased this for half the cost and does the job, still on the break in period. Runs my a/c and 2 fridges, all lights and tv with no issues. Just a tad louder than I would like but still quiet enough to use in the campground.

Solid Product So Far
Iimpressed so far. Set up was easy. They even supply a funnel to fill the oil. First trip with this was at right around 10,000 ft. Called and they shipped me a high altitude jet but told me probably wouldn't need it and I didn't. Generator worked well. Not as quiet as my Yamaha 1600-2000 but around $400 cheaper. Haven't put a heavy load on it yet and did the initial oil change as required. All in all a good purchase.

Only negative was wheels pretty much don't work unless you're on... more

Does What It Claims
I had been wanting to purchase one of these for use when we dry camp with our 5th Wheel RV. I finally pulled the trigger with the approach of Hurricane Irma. I did the 5 hour breaking-in on Thursday 9/7. We lost power in the house around 4am on Sunday morning. I waited until it got light out, went out to the pole barn hooked up the Champion 100261 to the 5th Wheel fired it up and we had power. Once it started getting warmer I turned on the a/c and it fired right up. My a/c is 15000btu and while... more

"I needed this generator a Champion 100261 delivered ASAP with approach of Hurricane Irma. I called Electric Generators Direct on Tuesday morning and the Customer Service Rep (sorry I forgot your name but a big thanks) told me I should receive it by Friday or Saturday but to make sure he would make sure it got shipped on Tuesday. I received it around 2pm Thursday. I was impressed."

First-time Purchase Of Generator
We purchased the Champion Inverter Generator for a planned camping trip in late October however, our timing was extremely fortunate as the generator arrived the day before Harvey hit our home in the Galveston, Texas area. I had just enough time to run it through the break-in period, change the oil and later that evening we lost power.

We started using the generator continuously for about the next 18 hours and had absolutely no problems. Our power was on and off for hours at a time for... more

My Hunting Buddy's Begged Me Not To Buy It! Boy, Were They Wrong
Our "hunting camp/family reunions" every year in the Upper Deschutes of Oregon consists of a couple dozen people and a bunch of RV's and generators, ALL of them are the "RED" generators, all except mine. I have been through three different gens in the past 5 years, all of them failed for one reason or another. EVERYONE told me,"go buy the RED one and it will be the last gen you ever own, blah blah blah!" Well, I am a rebel I guess, when my Father-in-Law looked... more
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Features, Quiet, Exceeded Expectations

Champion 3400/3100 Watt - A Good Little Generator
I purchased the Champion 3400 inverter for several reasons. (1) remote electric start, (2) to run the A/C in my RV trailer, (3) Low noise level, (4) the clean inverted ac output to run electronic devices, (5) light weight and low cost compared to comparable Red and Blue box generators of same capacity. The unit arrived at my front door in less than 5 days. Setup and first start took about 25 minutes because I did have to glance at the instructions a time or two. The built in 30 amp plug was... more

Nice Generator
Bought this generator to power my camper at our club in southern Ohio. No problems, runs air conditioner, micro-wave and charging system mostly at low idle. Very fuel efficient, only wish it had a larger fuel tank. Also oil drain plug let oil drain under engine frame causing a mess. I fixed this problem by buying a hose made by Drainzit. Took the mess out of it ! I would recommend this generator to anyone !
Pros: Exceeded Expectations, Price, Light Weight, I'd Buy It Again

Good Generator
Let's start with the generator I came from. I had a unit I had bought for Y2K. A Generac XL 5500 watt. This unit was a beast. I could power the critical things in my house and more. It was LOUD! It was an 11hp motor and always started on the first pull (no electric start). Great power output. I had it with my RV for a number of years, but I didn't use it much. It was just too loud. After bouncing around on a carrier on the back of my 5th wheel RV, I kept finding loose parts, so I... more
