This inverter includes a bottle of engine oil. The only thing you need to supply is gas. The 2000-Watt Stackable Inverter comes with two 120-Volt 20 Amp household outlets (5-20R) and also includes 12-Volt DC outlet for charging batteries. The 2000-Watt Stackable Inverter is powered by a reliable 80cc Champion single-cylinder OHV engine with a 1 Gal. fuel tank, 0.4 qt. oil capacity (recommended 10-Watt-30, included) and automatic low oil shut-off sensor. The generator is 50-state/CARB compliant.

Customer Questions & Answers

I have a table saw rated at 15 amps. I can't run it on a 1000 watt generator (I should have done the math first). Looking at the numbers, this should be adequate for 17.5 amps. Has anyone tried this kind of load? Do you experts think this will be sufficient? Thanks, Pat
Asked by: FulltimeRVer
Here's some feedback: despite the results of the math computations that indicate this will NOT run a 15-amp table saw , I went ahead and bought it. I did that because my friend's Honda 2000i generator ran my table saw with no trouble. I just received this Champion generator yesterday. First impressions: this is a NICE generator, well-designed , and well-made. I filled it up with the oil provided this morning, added gas, started it, let it warm up, plugged in my table saw and cut through a piece of 2x4. Worked fine. Now I will say, I am NOT someone who will be using it all day long on a job-site. But it works excellently , SO FAR, for my needs. I've known other full-time RVers who carry these, and love them. Regards, Pat

will it run an RV air conditioner?

I read where it ran an AC. How big of a RV unit AC will it run?
Asked by: TBar
I don't know, but I tested mine with a 12,000 BTU frigidaire. It ran it without any problems. After starting the ac, I tried running it in eco mode and that also worked. I wish I would have tried starting it from eco mode, but I have serious doubts about it starting from eco mode. I've also run a 8,000 BTU and a 5,000 BTU at the same time and that surprisingly worked too. For the money, these are good little generators.

Can I plug a 30 amp travel trailer directly into this generator to charge the battery and run the interior lights.

Asked by: Brian1967
Yes with a simple 30A-&gt;20A adapter plug. It should run everything in a RV except a roof A/C.

will it run a microwave
Asked by: studridge
Yes, as long as anything else running at the same time doesn't exceed the 1700 watt rating.

1,700/2,000-Watt Recoil Start Gasoline Powered Portable Inverter Generator is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 440.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable I have purchased 4 of these generators and taken them to Panama, where they provide power in remote jungle locations in support of an ongoing entomology research project that I am conducting all over the country, from the Chiriqui Mountains near the border with Costa Rica to the jungles of Darien National Park, near the border with Colombia. The generators perform flawlessly and have been extremely reliable for the past 2 years. I have given 3 of them away, to our Embrera Indian guide down near Colombia, and to the University of Panama. I just purchased my 5th Champion 73536i and will take it to Panama in April. I no longer use Honda generators as these outperform them easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy with my Second Champion Generator! Like most other buyers, I bought this generator for RV use. I already owned a 3500(4000 peak) traditional "construction" style Champion generator and I was quite happy with it. However, we needed a quieter generator for camping both to keep the peace with any neighbors and allow us to relax as well. We settled on a pair of these as we would only need 2 of them when running the AC and otherwise could just bring along one of them. Packaging - This generator was well packaged with any chance of damage being unlikely. I immediately noticed how easy it was to pickup removing it from the box with the sturdy handle. It isn't light, but also isn't too heavy to easily carry around the campsite or lift onto the tailgate of your truck. Setup - Before you run this generator or even put gas in it, you will need to put oil in it, obviously. Adding the included oil is very easy with the included funnel. The back panel is easy to remove and the fill neck allows for easy filling and draining. Startup - Following the directions for starting, this generator fired up immediately. After getting used to my traditional generator I was pleasantly surprised by how quiet it was, and this was without ECO mode enabled. First Operating Impressions - I placed the generator about 8 feet from my living room slide which has the couch where you would sit to watch TV. I went ahead and plugged in my RV and switched on ECO mode, then went inside and started turning on various loads inside. Even while running the microwave I was impressed by how quiet it was even under load. With just the 12V converter and TV running it continued to run at a quiet idle. I bought this generator 3 months ago and wanted to wait to write a review until I've used it for a while. Unfortunately life happens and it has not been run since its first 1 hour run during initial testing. This evening I pulled it out to run it for a bit. As expected it started on the first pull. For ease of maintenance I also installed an hour meter before I even started the first time that requires no modification to the generator, simply has a wire that wraps around the spark plug wire. I think Champion should include hour meters on all generators as they are inexpensive. However, this is my only complaint so far with this generator and I will be buying another in the near future along with the parallel kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent in the Jungle I have purchased 5 of the 73536i 2000w generators over the past 2 years and taken them to Panama to power our bright Mercury Vapor lights and other equipment for my entomology Biodiversity research project, in the remote jungles of the Darien, down near Colombia and other locations, including up in the mountains near the border with Costa Rica. I had one back-packed several hours up the mountain in Darien National Park to a very remote location, where we discovered new species of insects. We've used them from sea-level to over 6300 ft elevation without a problem. Quiet and efficient, and very reliable. I'm glad I switched from Honda to Champion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Well I purchased two of these 2000 watt Champion Inverter Generators and tied them together for my 5th Wheel RV. The first generator arrived two days before the other one and it started on the first try. When the second one arrived, it started on the third try. I followed the instructions to the tee and they are both working out very well for me. I would recommend these Champion Inverter Generators for anyone that wants a quiet but effective generator for their trailer. I can run most everything with both units tied together. You can buy two of these units for the price of a Honda or Yamaha generator. So far, it's only been a couple weeks, but I'm a very satisfied customer !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First generator purchase This is our first generator purchase. We ordered online and it landed on our porch with a big thud. Thankfully, it is well packed and no damage appears to have occurred. We filled the oil (the oil is clear, which makes it a bit hard to see where the oil is when filling). We filled the gas from the top. Followed the clear startup instructions. It took a few pulls, but it started up. It is pretty quiet. It appears to have charged up our camper battery. We hope it runs our small AC when we are not plugged in at a RV park. Handle makes it easy to transport. And the size of the generator allows it to be transported inside the camper when needed. Time will truly tell when it comes to quality, but so far it looks to be good.
