Asked by manjit March 1, 2021

Answer

We encourage you to go at least one size up which would be our 3,100W inverter for the intended application. Please keep in mind that there are other factors that are involved as well, such as elevation, or charging batteries on a camper without realizing that they require a charge. This will minimize the items you are planning to run, and in some cases it will not run your 10000BTU air conditioner. Thank you.

Answers

In videos with sound tests, the champion performs very similarly to Honda, Harbor freight and Generac invertor generators. You should expect about 84 decibels at the engine and 64db at the industry standard 23 feet under load and around 58 db with no load and eco mode on at 23 feet. For comparison, an open frame job-site style generator will be 100 db at the engine and 80 db at 23 feet, load or no-load because it is not an inverter generator and has to coninuously spin at 3,600 rpm.

What is the RPM range of this with eco mode on and off. To be clear so the mfg answers correctly;...

Use a GFI device and you will have no issues. This will add protection prior to reaching the generator unit. You can purchase a cord adapter with a resettable GFI built into the cord.

Asked by Maverick December 9, 2020

Answers

Yes it can. The flat surface is for the low oil cut out and the fuel pickup. If too much slope, then the alarm will shut off the generator. If you are worried, build a small wood platform or recess some small concrete blocks in the slope of the hill to level the grade.

Asked by Maverick November 28, 2020

Answers

12 Gauge or 10 Gauge, but depends upon length of cord. The further away, the larger the diameter, by the way 10 is larger than 12 in wire terms. 10 AWG is also heavier due to more copper stranding. This unit only puts out 15 continuous amps. 12 AWG is more than enough to vocer this output, but when you make that cord 100', there is a voltage drop that occurs and you take the chance of under voltaging your refigerator, so best to use google how to calculate voltage drop and make sure you do things correctly

Great generator, easy to start, maintain and does what it says it supposed to do. Besides it’s performance I like the size of it, quite practical to fit in any small location of my van, yet powerful enough to produce 2500 watt of power. Thanks to Champion. Highly recommend for the price and quality. I have it for 6 months no complains. What I like about this generator is it’s easiness to start and at low power consumption it runs very quietly. It meets my everyday usage, thanks to the manufacturer.

Does not put out the wattage that they claim. This seems to just be the 2000 or 2200 watt generator relabeled as a 2500 watt. Even after the 5 hour break in period and then running another 5 hours and a 2nd oil change just for good measure, it still burns oil and smokes like crazy. Especially on start up and every time the rpms raise up from idle on Eco mode. It will not run my 11,000 btu rv air conditioner even with a supco spp6 hard start kit. (AC alone, nothing else running). Definitely going to return it and go with a Honda.

Response from Champion Power ExpertJul 30, 2020
We re very sorry to hear about this experience with our 2500-watt inverter. Please be aware that if you are at a high altitude, the unit will lose 3.5% of power for every 1000 feet above sea level. If the smoke is a blue/white color then oil is being burned. The oil may have been overfilled slightly or during shipping was turned on its side and residual oil settled in the muffler. If it is burning off, let the machine keep running and the smoke should dissipate. If it does not, get back to us right away. Also, you can open the oil cap while the generator is on a flat surface, if oil runs out, it is overfilled. Please email us at support@cpeauto.com, if you encounter any further issues. Thank you.

I am happy with the second unit.
Only used it for a short time. I am not sure why I got a unrepair generator the first time but the second unit does everything I needed. The help site was a great help on ideas for the first one. Did not need them on the brand new unit. It was hard to pick from all the different companies out here. I picked on the one because it filled my needs. I am happy with it. I use it for a storage shed lighting and power. Also a back up when needed.

Champion Model #100565 Awsome 2000 Watt Inverter
This Model #100565 2000 watt inverter generator is a great addition to our other model #100452 5500 watt generator. The larger 5500 watt genset will keep our refrigerators, freezer and other electrical devices operating while the smaller 2000 watt inverter will keep our sensitive electronics up and running in the event of a sustained power outage. This model #100565 has proven to be as trustworthy as our other model in that it has started everytime with only one pull. The fuel shutoff feature is one that many of the other competitors have not installed on their equipment. This is a major reason for picking this Champion model as it keeps the fuel from clogging the carburetor when not in use. I have installed hour meters and magnetic dip sticks on both sets which allows for better oil life and sticking to the recommended service schedules. We will most likely be adding another 100565 in the near future for paralleling purposes. We highly recommend this inverter to our friends and people looking for a reliable piece of equipment.
by Northcal Joel
Easy to use and parallel.
My husband purchased this generator because I complained of the noise of the other generator. This generator is so easy to use and carry. We actually purchased another one to parallel them.
