Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Purchase I've Made Recently This little generator has been a great asset for my horse trailer and camping experiences. The ease of starting and stopping from inside the trailer makes it priceless. I have not had any problems with it and would highly recommend it to anyone who asked. October 20, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works well, Runs What i need to to, This Generator is fairly quiet. i don't have alot of experience with them but it is compact and the muffler has bolts at the output so i could put on a after market "super muffler attachment" if i had to run at nite or so. It does run very clean and the remote does work to the specs they say even through a warehouse building. The only downside i have seen is that there was not a complete axle and the bolts they used were not coated to resist rusting. Since i expect it to go on the ground with mud and water every so often.replaced with stainless steel all thread and all stainless steel bolts. A good option they left to is that the antenna is threaded so if you want better range with the remote you could put on a larger antenna also they have a switch shutoff on the battery terminals so if you store it for a while the battery won't die fast by being kept ground by the generator.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Runs everything in my 40' 5th wheel, Tried running the a/c with convection, but that really didn't work, but the microwave does, so that is really good for dry camping. Quiet & the remote feature is awesome; plug in, go to bed, wake up hit the button & coffee! Oh yeah, this generator is ideal. September 18, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Arrived damaged Can't really evaluate because it arrived with a broken end mount. I followed instructions to cut box away and once I discovered the broken mount I called manufacturer. They sent me a replacement part which requires 22 steps to install! (Remove fuel tank, disconnect electrical etc.. I've decided to return to Home Depot once I get the box all taped back together. Hope they'll accept it for refund!! I'm afraid if it was dropped hard enough to break the mount, there may be other problems down the road...... January 8, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Arrived with damaged tube frame The unit arrived in a timely manner. Removed the shipping packaging and found that the tube frame is bent where the wheel connect to frame. That causes the wheel to run crocked making it harder to pull the unit. Will use as is since I only use it for back up power.. Fired it up, started easy and ran good. I think it was a good buy since it performs same adequate functions a much more expensive units January 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nice features Shipping took a little longer than I thought it should have, But well worth the wait. July 23, 2013
