I have a Champion 4000/3500 mounted in my truck bed. We've used it for two seasons. It has run 12 hours straight running my 15K AC and everything else with no problems. It's not quite as quiet as a Honda or Yamaha, but when we're inside, we can hardly hear it. We haven't had any complaints from our fellow campers when running it. i.e. boon docking. It has a 30A RV recepticle which makes it convenient.
I got it for $270, a lot cheaper than a Honda or Yamaha.

One thing about history, some learn from it and others repeat it over and over again.
I think Dec. 22, 2012 will be 3 days before Christmas and the day after Dec. 21, 2012.
One thing history taught me, have some extra cash handy to pick up some great deals on generators and camping stuff from the folks that PT Barnum said were born every minute.
Not really off topic, if you are looking ahead for deals on GENERATORS and can wait a bit.
And I think you are spot on correct.

Champion 4000

How has the experience been with starting the hand pull Champion 4000 generator? Has anyone had any experience with it starting and running a 15k AC unit?
Many Thanks

One regular Honda 2000, and a companion 2000. They can be linked together, or just use one, depending on your needs. Spend the money and get the best, you wont be sorry. I have had the others, Boliy, Coleman, Champion and wished I would have gone with the Hondas to start with.
