Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

At three hundred dollars, this generator was less than half price of the cost to repair the kholer generator in rv. It started on the second pull and runs great. The muffler noise is a little louder but bearable with windows closed. It runs the coleman air and the new all electric frostfree fridge without a wobble, and also powers the 45 amp converter and battery charger. I saw no signs of light flicker which the kohler generator was famous for!! The schematic shows a simple mech. engine governor and generator wiring with an adjustable voltage regulator. The Champion web site also offer free schematics and repair trouble shooting guides plus phone support for tech. assistance. It does what i needed it to do and with less gas than older 20hp generator. SO far so good--time will tell about its reliability

I bought this generator to power a 8,000 btu window air conditioner with a few misc items like a microwave. I have this generator ratchet strapped to my semi truck. I run it 9 to 12 hours a night. I only have 50hrs on it but its been great. I'm using a rv adptor plug and not the 115v connections. it has been the easiest starting small engine ive ever started. I always start when its a cold motor and run it average 10hrs. at 750 watts continuous, I can go about 17hrs per tank, that's a lot of savings in diesel. I have only to see its dependability vs price. i'm using full synthetic oil and changing every 50hrs. I have $900 in whole setup, so if this generator last more than 450hrs, it pays for itself. ill post another review at that mark.

My family has several different kinds of generators since all the hurricanes over the past few years. We have Troy Built, Generac, Champion. The Champions are the best of them all. As long as you use a fuel treatment to keep the gas usable and turn the fuel off and let it run out of gas so it don't keep gas in the carb you will be satisfied with this. Ours has sat for over a year and all you do is turn on the fuel, choke it and most of the time one pull and your running. It will run anything on a 30amp RV. If you have a 50amp RV you will need an adapter for 50amp to 30amp and will only be able to run one AC off it. Like I said if I were buying all new generators all of them would be a Champion.

This Champion Generator is ready for RV use. Which was the main reason we bought it. The fact that we can use it during a power outage and on my 240 welder is a plus.

Whoever has said this is noisy hasn't had a generator before. Out of the box, oil filled and gas in.. 2 pulls and it fired up .... 35% quieter than my neighbors gennie. Still to see how it performs, but with an RV plus and a normal plug ready to go it is everything I was looking for. Ordered ThuPM was on my doorstep by Mon PM ! Good brand name and excellent reviews on all the RV and camping sites ... simply $70 less on Walmarts site. Dont need wheels ... why ? meh! Once it's where you want it :-) So far so Good !

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

When I first started it after putting the correct amount of oil it would run for 2 seconds and die. The service dept said to fill it up until oil ran out of filler neck. That solved the problem. Low oil sensor was turning it off. Next problem is using my microwave, the engine bogs down and will barely run. The microwave turntable barely turns and light inside is dim. I pulled the sponge air filter and it ran at rated speed...not getting enough air. Just info to help you if you experience the same problems.

I have an Edgestar model AP8000W portable air conditioner unit w/ the specs above. Will this generator handle this appliance w/ no problem?

  • A. If you, indeed, have a three phase electrical system, this unit will not work for you. It is doubtful that you have a three phase system though. This is an excellent 120 volt single phase generator that will produce a rated 29.5 amps with a surge capacity of 33.3 amps. The good thing about this generator is that it will supply the entire rated amperage through the TT-30R outlet.

  • A. If this is a 220volt unit(3 phase is 220v) than no . AS far as wattage and amps is concerned is your unit 8000btu or 8000watts---i run a coleman overhead 14,000btu ,110volt air with no problem. If you have a 110v 8000btu portable air than it will run it with power to spare. It has a 28 amp max generator at 110 volt
