  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

Will Not Start 13,500 Btu Ac Unit
WIll not start a 13,500 but roof top ac unit. Save your money if this is what you are looking for. Also no way to return generator you are stuck with it. Recommend you buy from a store where you can try unit to see if it will work.
Pros: Quiet
Cons: Heavy, Unreliable, Expensive, Will not start ac unit.

Jared, the Portable Generator Expert

Mike,
Consider a hard start/capacitor kit, which is very inexpensive and will allow your generator to start your AC.

Its Okay
For the price it is great. Found some issues. It can not run a 31V Vengeance Toy Hauler, unless it runs for at least 10 to 15 minutes. After that it runs great. So I went ahead and bought two of the generators. Now it runs everything with no issues. I run them in parallel. Runs for a least 6 hours. I use the 50 amp hook up . MY wife loves it cause all she has to do is push a button.
Pros: Quiet, Features, Light Weight, Reliable
Cons: No fuel gage, No hour meter

Works Great
My brother had to replace his generator and bought this unit. It runs his camper air, so I thought I would try it also. I bought this generator to use for my camper. Runs my 13.5 air conditioner. Started right up out of the box it's a little heavy but it is ok. Could have a larger gas tank. Remote control is great.
Pros: Price, Quiet, I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Use
Cons: Heavy

The Best Rv Generator From The Best Generator Dealer!!!
If you were thinking about getting one, don't think anymore. Just get it! You won't be disappointed. The review wouldn't let me add any more pros, so I will do it here. It's quiet and exceeded my expectations. Only time will tell when it comes to durability and life span.

Best Generator On The Market Price And Value
Great unit, great price and wonderful customer service. I purchased two of the units because I have a fifty amp service on my fifth wheel unit. Champion is the only generator that had the parallel kit that had the 50 amp service and/or 30 amp box with both plug-ins on the same box. The units also have 30 amp plugs in the front. Both units run on the economy side of the selector switch when paralleled.

They are very quiet units and the remote electric starts are wonderful for early... more

We bought two of them and a parallel kit. It runs my concession trailer no problem. I can take them in and out of my truck by myself. They seem very high quality. A super deal when compared to Honda.

Great unit, much better then the Honda 3000 I have been using for years. Starts easy love the remote. Bigger fuel tank. or a way to attach a line into a tank. Runs about 5 hrs before i need to add gas. Using to to run my air on my trailer there is plenty of power. Have had a Honda 3000 for years several problem with it. It could not handle a full load on the compressor with air turn to very cold. No problem with this I try not to run at the real cold setting just don't need to . I have told... more
