  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

Poor Quality
Arrived with broken plastic pieces on inside and out. Also, the 30 and 20 amp circuit breaker buttons don't depress and hold so they are useless. Disappointed over quality but satisfied on how quiet it operates.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Features
Cons: Low Quality, Buttons non functional

Patrick,
Thank you for providing feedback on your generator purchase. Please note, any damage to an item should be reported to us as soon as possible. As for the circuit breakers, only in the event of a tripped breaker, will the button be able to be depressed (to reset) the breaker.

Ok, So Far...
Haven't had time to use it much. Just changed the oil. It's heavier than I wanted and it's louder than I would like. For almost twice the price, I could have gotten a quieter, lighter Honda. :) The remote start works perfectly. I have had 3 back surgeries and can't lift it into my pickup, so I've rigged a block and tackle in my garage. Only problem is that there's really no good way to secure a sling. The lifting handles bend dangerously. I use a towing strap wrapped endwise under the... more

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

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

Great Product
We looked around a lot at Honda ect but for the money this generator was the right ticket we own a 21 foot Mini Light trailer with all the conveniences including a 13,500 BTU AC unit and this generator runs the AC just great. The remote start button is just awesome the very first time we started up the unit one push and it started right up. Both of us ladies are over 65 and to not have to use a pull cord to start it was a real plus, Have only used it once but we are extremely happy with how... 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
