  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.

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

The generator would kick out when my RV ac kicked on then shut down, champion sent me a new module to replace. Never changed a thing, still kicked out when ac load started, had electrician check out ac on camper, pulls 12 amps when running on fan high, the generator was supposed to be rated at 3100 watts running 25.08 amps amp 3400 watts start 28.33 amps. It seems that champion is over rating there generator capability as my camper only used 18 amps total with every thing on. Now that I ran my... more

Mike, the Generator Expert
Product Expert
Michael,
Champion provides accurate output ratings for their generators. You might want to consider having your electrician test the starting amps (LRA) of the AC unit. He'll probably find that it is in the 25-28A range on start up. Basically that means it takes all the power available from the generator to start the compressor on the AC unit. If you try to do that with other items on, it will cause the generator to overload and turn off.

Also you might want to consider a soft start kit for your RV AC unit. These inexpensive kits helps reduce the amp draw required to start your AC unit. For more information, I would suggest contacting an RV dealer in your area.

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
