Econ mode idling is listed at 53dba on the Amazon site. I've had it running next to Yamaha and Honda units and it's on par with them. We run 1 to several fans off the unit and they are louder than the generator!! Hasn't been enough draw to take it off econ idle mode yet..
I haven't seen anybody listing a full power dba rating. I've got a dba meter on order for another job and if I remember I'll update

There in not a jet kit available at this time according to Champion, as I had trouble running mine at 6500+ above sea level, Below 5000 ft great, never had trouble ever as it always started on the first or second pull.

Answer: 
This generator will work at high elevation. However, you will lose 3.5% of the generator's capacity for every 1,000 ft. above sea level. There is no high altitude jet for the 80cc engine used in this inverter.

Answer: 
Depending on the size,which you did not mention, the answer is maybe, but probably not. If you have a 13.5k AC as many new small to medium sized RV's do, you will require 2 of these connected with the Parallel Operations Kit to power it. I opted for this method over the larger 3100 as it allows me to not lug around a 100lb generator when I know I won't need the AC.

Answer: 
In order to run a common RV AC unit, you will need two of these generators running in parallel. Even most window AC units have a higher starting wattage than this generator can provide.

1,700/2,000-Watt Recoil Start Gasoline Powered Portable Inverter Generator is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 86.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Little Unit This is the best unit I have in my stock. day in and day out at the race track and running my small compressor for tires this unit does the job. would I by it again? Yes for Sure

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome little generator!! i purchased this generator about year ago, to take camping with me, and for the unlikely event of a prolonged power outage at home. with every use, it has performed flawlessly, starts without a glitch, and powers all of the equipment that i hook to it. when it is in whisper mode, at a distance of about 50 ft (one extension cord) you dont even know its there. overall very pleased with this product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent easy to use Bought this for my travel trailer. Excellent quality and easy to use. 1-3 pull and it starts. I ran this unit side by side at campground with Honda and I can't seem to see any major operation difference rather than the cost. I have it for 2 seasons now and it runs like new. I would recommend this to anyone. Make sure to read manual fully and follow through.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always starts on first pull I bought this unit last year. I don't use it a lot, just when we camp to recharge RV battery. However, it always start on the first pull. Noise level is just what it states. It's automatic power boost is a feature I would not what to be without. Great fuel enconomy too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great item Was looking for a quiet and inexpensive(I'm cheap) generator. Good friend has a Yamaha and this is on par with the sound level. The fan we use at events is louder than the generator!! After quite a bit of checking and a couple returns this unit fits the bill. Accurate description on the web about it and easy to operate. Added the oil(funnel supplied), fuel and started 2nd pull.. After using many times it's still firing right up.. Also great with the fuel shut-off so you can run the carb dry with this crud Ethanol usage. I highly recommend Sta-Bil, Sea Foam or a similar product even for normal usage. Thanks EPA <-- not. Great Product with FREE delivery to the house.. Thanks Home Depot ! ! !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it! I was wanting a quiet generator like the Honda 2000 for camping in our little tent trailer, wanting the obvious benefits of a generator but not wanting thew entire camp ground to hear it. Well, so far its lived up to expectations on the quiet side, maybe only slightly louder than the Honda my friend paid $1000+ for. I got mine through Cabela's on black friday for only $400. What a steal! Its a little bigger than the Honda with comparable watts but i can still carry it with one hand. Although i haven't had it out camping just yet to really put it to the test, I am extremely happy with the product so far! should i decide i need more in the future, i'll just buy a second one and the parallel kit and still be hundreds ahead as compared to buying the Honda. THANK-YOU CHAMPION!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job! I bought two of these generators. I camp in a truck camper in the winter and needed to run a space heater for the really cold nights. In the 20's the generator ran my space heater for 5 hours, in the 40's it runs for 10 hours.They are relatively quiete especially on eco mode. I run my computer and charge my phone also. So far I am very happy, they fired right up when I got them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Value By Far! I did weeks of research and review reading before deciding on the 73536i. I needed enough power to run my RV AC so I knew I'd need two inverter generators run in parallel. The obvious choice seemed to be the popular 2000 watt red model (not supposed to mention competitor brands), but at over $1000 each a pair would put me over $2000! Seemed rediculous to spend that much money for less than 4000 watts of power. So the search was on. Bottom line...I found no other inverter generator comes even close to the quality and value that the Champion 73536i offers. Starting with the box, packing and instructions that the 73536i came in and ending with the solid quality and care obviously built into these generators, I'm confident I made the right decision...and I saved well over $500 in the process. A big bonus for me is the square, stacking format of the design. It suited the storage space in my RV perfectly. I believe that you simply cannot go wrong deciding on the Champion 73536i inverter generator.
