Why are the reviews so bad on this unit I need a reliable unit for my rv ????

Asked by Jon April 1, 2021

Answer

Our model 100573 is a reliable generator that can be used in an application to perfectly run an RV and an air conditioner of to 15,000 BTU's. If you have any questions or would like additional information regarding the model, please feel free to email us at support@cpeauto.com. Thank you.

When powering a home electrical panel via transfer switch, do the loads needs to be balanced acro...

Asked by NeedClarification March 24, 2021
1
Answer

It will only put out maximum of 30 amps on each 120 volt leg. Another way to say it 3600 watts on each 120 volt leg. If perfectly balanced would be 7200 watts 3600 on each leg. The 120 volt plugs on the panel can each put out 30 amps as they are on separate sides of inverter. Neither side can do over 30 amps at 120 volts. Standard generators and inverters work same on load distribution.

Gasoline or gas?

Gasoline.

I'm buying this inverter, but I need to know which transfer switch is compatible with it. Thank you!

We encourage you to consult with a licensed electrician to allow them to select an appropriate transfer switch for your home. Thank you.

Answers

It’s a piece of junk. Ran for a total of 27 hours (3 days 9 hours a day) and it done. Turns on and turns right back off. Every screw fell with the vibration of it. Loud for being a inverter. Save your money. I do not recommend. I’d probably be better off with a solar phone charger for light rather than this junk.

Answer

Depending on the transfer switch's configuration will determine if the conversion will have to be made. If the transfer switch is bonded, then the generator will have to be converted to a floating neutral which is very easy to do. If you require any assistance, please email us at support@cpeauto.com. Thank you!

Awesome generator and very quiet, was able to run my 13.5k ac and 800 watt microwave at the same time. Used the remote start from inside the trailer several times and it was a game changer not to go out side. I chained it to the trailer bumper and could not hear it inside the trailer over the ac. Very quiet and way quieter then my family’s inverter Yamahas. I would say I have about 60 hours on it from a hot weekend running the ac all day and night and was great on gas filled it up in the morning and at night before bed and never ran out. 100% recommend.

Haven't had to use it yet. Will be serving as an emergency backup for power outages in my home. Will run it as propane only to be cleaner. In our test run, after connecting the unit to our home outlet, it even runs our a/c!! Gonna love this!!!

Dual fuel and it starts right up
This champion generator was just what I was looking for right out of the box, poured the oil in the motor,and gas in the tank and the battery turned over the champion generator just like it should. It will be enough to power the whole house and 2 wells for the PSPS outages we will see in Northern California.

This generator is the best of two worlds. It's powerful at 6250 watts and kind to electronics. The ECO mode is fantastic. It runs quieter and saves gas. It's compact and unlike other generators it comes with wheels and a handle. I had it delivered to my home and it arrived quickly (and undamaged).

Response from Champion Power ExpertNov 19, 2019
Thank you for leaving this review Rob!
fantastic
Incredibly easy to set up and use. I even got it to connext to two 120 gallon propane tabks on my house for power outtages. Started on the first push using propane and i even varied the load during the break in time The 30amp outlet is perfect for connecing to my home interlock. Not afraid of the next power outtage. 3 things I wish they included, storm cover, spark plug wrench, and battery tender. Its marketed as a back up generator and lets face it you probably wont use it daily. For $999.99 it should at least have the cover and wrench.

Worked right out of the box. Goes together quickly. Dual fuel great option. Did a 30-minute initial run to power the house. Ran two TVs, two computers, lights, 25 cubic foot fridge 16 cubic foot freezer. All ran great with no problems.Generator voltage in house was 124 volts.Switch back to Power Company, it's 119 volts. And this was through 140 ft of 6 gauge copper wire buried underground. I did talk to Champion customer service They recommended when using Stable, use marine-grade Stable for fuel as it's better. Great value.

We got the Champion 10K/8K dual fuel generator to have plenty of power & options for fuels which were the main things we liked about this. Easy assembly with common tools & included the container of engine oil. Started right up & was fairly quiet for a generator of this size. We've had this generator for about a month & so far have only ran it on propane. Left it setup at home while we are on vacation incase the power goes out so one of our neighbors or friends can come start it up & keep the sump pump & fridge running until the power is restored. Plans to add a transfer switch & inlet to our home for easier backup for storm outages. A must have for homeowners looking for a great backup plan!!! Also would be great to take on camping trips. Very happy with our purchase & definitely meets our expectations. Home Depot had everything we needed & delivered to our store very quickly along with the financing! Thanks!

The power went out during a polar vortex storm here in West Michigan, so I started shopping for generators. After doing some research, it became very apparent that Champion was leading the way in terms of engineering design, build-quality, pricing, and customer support! Nearly every place I looked, it was 5-star reviews, and now I know why myself! Also, Champion’s customer service team was everywhere online; interacting with people and helping answer questions....including mine. I bought this unit because I needed ENOUGH power to run my entire home heating system, yet have power that was also CLEAN enough to run my computers, electronics, and my son’s home studio music gear. This Digital Hybrid Inverter unit is truly the best of both worlds! That said, I also needed to buy from a company that made solid products....because I'm not much on having to repair or replace things...I simply don't have the time or the money. Well, I found EXACTLY what I was looking for! To get started: The manual is extremely well written (in English & Spanish). There are also helpful decals all over the unit, and a ton of other great little things (like an oil-change hose with its own attached cap). And this thing not only looks great; it runs like an ABSOLUTE DREAM! Even in frigid, sub-zero temps, it starts in 1-2 pulls and runs long and quiet…especially in Eco-Mode where its run-speed adjusts very smoothly in real-time to meet power demands. You can just tell this thing is well-designed and built to last. I honestly still can't believe how quiet it really is, and how long it runs on a full tank of fuel! This thing's power is big AND clean...an important combination! And, Champion has the quality and service to back it up.I simply can’t say enough good things about this Digital Hybrid Open Frame Inverter generator, or about Champion as a company. You won’t find a better product, or a better value! Thanks Champion - Keep up the Great Work!

I haven't used it on propane yet but I ran my welder with it and it worked great. It is not too loud. My only negative feedback would be that it accepts fuel too slowly because the screen is very fine. It took a while to fill and I spilled a little, especially when it bubbled as the air escaped.
