Can it be operated in the rain and snow without being covered?

Asked by: Rudedawg
No. The generator must be protected from direct elements such as rain and snow. It is producing electricity and it is not water proof.

3,500-Watt/4,000-Watt Remote Electric Start Gasoline Powered RV Ready Portable Generator is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 89.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from EASE OF ASSEMBLY & OPERATION My husband and I are in our seventies and bought this model mainly for its electric start feature. We are unable to yank on a cord in order to start. It was incredibly easy to assemble and start up. Hopefully we won't have many electrical outages, but the last time it happened we were without power for 8 hours. In our area there are lots of glitches and once power was out for three days. It is great that all we have to do is flip a few switches to give us power and peace of mind. We can run our freezer and oxygen concentrators, which are our biggest concerns, without relying on someone to crank on the other one we had so we could have electricity. This is an incredible generator for the price and it's features. Already our neighbors are considering buying a Champion for themselves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved Me During a Power Outage This generator really helped us out during a prolonged power outage. Was able to run our garage freezer, refrigerator, TV, Cable modem, a few fans, and charge our cell phones. Had to speak to support at first to try to get it started (low oil sensor.) Add a little more oil, and off it took! Remote start/stop is awesome to have. Wheels make it easy to move around. This is our first time every owning/using a generator, and the quick start guide provided in the box made set up a breeze! Thanks Champion! Amazon prime free shipping made it a now brainer because I couldn't find a electronic/remote start generator locally for the price I got this one for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but noisy. This is a very good generator. It started right up the first time and all of the features worked. The issue that I had is that it does not have an inverter so it runs at a constant speed (noise) regardless of load. I also noticed that the RV trailer (rental) that I was charging had flickering lights when the generator was attached. This could also be due to the lack of an inverter to clean up the voltage and frequency. If you only need a generator and are not concerned with disturbing other campers nearby, this will do the job. I returned this unit to Home Depot with no problems and ordered a different model (same manufacturer) that included an inverter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Saver During Hurricane Matthew I ordered the item as we were expecting Hurricane Matthew to roll through Florida. Even though we evacuated for the first night I picked it up after the storm had passed. As we had no power I had to put it together in the dark under flashlight. The instructions were simple and after about an hour or so was able to get it started. It started on the first try and has been running ever since without any issues. The electric start is a life saver as I never like to use a pull cord. So far my family has limited power thanks to Champion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hurricane Mathew life saver ! I bought this generator about 3 weeks before Hurricane Mathew hit. So glad I did! This small generator ran my fridge and freezer,small appliances and lights for 7 days straight with very little off time.The remote start came in handy too. Didn't even have to go outside to start and stop it. The manual said it would run up to 12 hrs on half load. I got about 14 hrs on each tank of gas. The noise level was decent also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Remote Start is Awesome!!! I keep these little Champs at a couple of my telecom sites in the winter. I keep a 1.5 amp trickle charger hooked up to gen battery via AC power and leave gen in the "battery" on position and "start" mid position. I have my crew go up there and start generator from the comfort of their warm trucks if the power is out longer than the battery backups can handle. Thanks Champion!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our First Generator! We were lucky after Hurricane Matthew last October; but many people we knew were not. After talking about it for a month, we did some research and found what we felt was a good generator. Of course, this is our first, so we were excited and scared when it arrived. The wheels assembled easily and it rolls well. We fired it up today. We were amazed! With a click of the remote control, we were off and running. Best item I have purchased in a long time. Lots of power and the size is not overwhelming. With hurricane season around the corner, we are ready and can be worry free about losing perishables.
