Answer

We do not currently have a TT-30 RV Outlet to 5-15 Standard Household style outlets. However, these are available from third party sellers and are safe to use as long as you are sure to spread out the attached appliances across the three available outlets to ensure no single outlet carries more than 15 amps. Thank you.

I own a 3400 recoil start Inverter/Generator, this is a manual (recoil) start only unit, no electric start. They do sell a model which has both for slightly more. I prefer the non electric start as it has no onboard battery to maintain & replace frequently, plus it's about 10Lbs lighter since it has no battery or electric starter. The recoil pull is very easy pull and starts on first pull usually.

I need about 3500 Watts for my ac start up can this unit still cover this

Asked by Don January 18, 2018

Answers

Yes it should work fine turn the fan on too high wait a couple seconds and then turn on the AC . If you turn the fan on first it will reduce the startup load when the compressor turns on. Make sure you have other electrical items turned off until the air conditioner is running

Sorry, it is not compatible with non-Champion generators.

Can you connect two 3400 watts. What would the top amp be and top volts be?

Asked by Inverter January 4, 2018

Answers

I know that the you can connect two of these generators, but I've not done so. I can say that I purchased this to replace my Ryobi 2,000 watt generator--which was an earlier version which couldn't be connected with another, to run my RV's Air Conditioner, and it works very well, not even running at full bore. I've had this unit now for about 6 months, and am bery pleased with it: It almost always starts on the first pull, and is very quiet for a unit of this size. Well done Champion!

Champion 3400w EXPLOSION
I'm a Volkswagen Master Technician and have worked on gasoline engines for 20 plus years. I purchased this generator and noticed it leaking gas after second use. I brought it to champion power equipment. They supposedly fixed the fuel leak. This NEW generator EXPLODED on me and cause 3rd degree BURNS to my entire body. Please be careful if you purchase this generator. It's very cheaply made and made in china.

Response from Champion Power ExpertJan 27, 2020
Hello Dallas, This is a false statement. You brought your machine to us in May of 2017 for service. In August of 2018, you experienced a fire while running the generator in the compartment of the RV which is strictly against the user guidelines. The fire was not started by a fuel leak. The fire and police report place you solely responsible for improper use of the generator. To quote Captain Mike Glaze, Fire Investigator I, of the Whittier CA FD, "Based on witness statements and security video footage, I state that this fire was caused by NEGLIGENCE. The occupant was refueling a gasoline-powered generator, which produces electricity and hot exhaust, while the generator was in operation. Flammable vapors were released to the atmosphere around the generator, and created an ignitable mixture within the surrounding air, causing a flash fire to occur. The occupant apparently operated in a reckless, negligent manner and inconsistent with safe handling practices with regard to flammable liquids and gasoline-powered equipment."

Went camping and pulled out of box, put in oil and gas and first pull started right up. Very easy to use. Powered are camper when needed. Easy to move around. It was alot quieter then others we we're with. Easy features, pull choke knob, turn on gas switch and pull cord. This definitely met my expectations and we were camping at 6,000 feet.

I bought this generator specifically to operate our 13.5k btu ac unit on our rv. The generator would not start our ac as delivered. After talking with tech support it was determined that the control unit was faulty. They quickly shipped a new cu but it was for the smaller 2.8kw generator and would not supply rated load. After some back and forth with tech, I promptly received the correct cu for the 3.1kw generator. The generator now does what is advertised. If not for the initial fault and the incorrect parts received, I would have rated higher. The folding handle makes it very easy for two people to lift and load into our tow vehicle. The package is very well laid out and has all the features we were looking for in a generator of this size and price range.

Product came well packed and easy to use instructions. It’s actually a bit bigger than it appears on the image but no issues with that. I tested and started and worked on first try, so far it seems to be a great purchase but since I have not used it on any emergencies I’m waiting to take it on my next camping trip and will submit another review than.

the power it makes seems good. will run a 5000 btu window unit without changing tone. has rough idle with no load(using ethanol free gas). not as quiet as it should be for the money that was spent on it. i own 3 other champion ,open case, generators,(have been using generators for 30+ years) that are just as quiet and 1/2 the cost. i called the Champion service department and hung up after 45 min. on hold . used there web site and asked several questions and still have not received a reply(that was 3 weeks ago. all champion wants to do is send me a tee shirt for a review. well here it is. would i recommend this unit to a friend? dont believe so. i would recommend something else. would i buy a champion product again. maybe their open frame models but not there inverter models. the price difference for the price just isn't worth it.
