I bought two inverters and the parallel kit to power our new RV. I brought them home and tried to start them in the driveway just so I could see if they worked. One started and ran and the second one never did start. I took it back to where it was purchased and they replaced it. That one started in the driveway just fine. I hooked up one generator to the RV to charge the battery and as soon as it was under load the generator quit and never started again. So I started the second one at home and put a load on it and it quit and never started again. The two generators have been in the shop for over a month and have still never been used for what we bought them for. I called Champion and their techs were very polite and seemed to want to help, but they kept asking me to take the generator apart and try this or that. I am not a mechanic and these are new units. I should not be expected to do the work. Only after much pushing was I provided with the name of a warranty repair shop in my area. It would have been a better experience if the tech had provided the warranty shop info right from the start.

Comments about Champion Power Equipment 1700/2000 Watt Portable Gas-Powered Inverter Generator:

I bought this unit last year. I don't use it a lot, just when we camp to recharge RV battery. However, it always start on the first pull. Noise level is just what it states. It's automatic power boost is a feature I would not what to be without. Great fuel enconomy too!

Excellent easy to use

Comments about Champion Power Equipment 1700/2000 Watt Portable Gas-Powered Inverter Generator:

Bought this for my travel trailer. Excellent quality and easy to use. 1-3 pull and it starts. I ran this unit side by side at campground with Honda and I can't seem to see any major operation difference rather than the cost. I have it for 2 seasons now and it runs like new.
I would recommend this to anyone. Make sure to read manual fully and follow through.

Comments about Champion Power Equipment 1700/2000 Watt Portable Gas-Powered Inverter Generator:

i purchased this generator about year ago, to take camping with me, and for the unlikely event of a prolonged power outage at home. with every use, it has performed flawlessly, starts without a glitch, and powers all of the equipment that i hook to it. when it is in whisper mode, at a distance of about 50 ft (one extension cord) you dont even know its there. overall very pleased with this product

The Best Value By Far!

By Throckmorton

from Tacoma, WA, USA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Champion Power Equipment 1700/2000 Watt Portable Gas-Powered Inverter Generator:

I did weeks of research and review reading before deciding on the 73536i. I needed enough power to run my RV AC so I knew I'd need two inverter generators run in parallel. The obvious choice seemed to be the popular 2000 watt red model (not supposed to mention competitor brands), but at over $1000 each a pair would put me over $2000! Seemed rediculous to spend that much money for less than 4000 watts of power. So the search was on. Bottom line...I found no other inverter generator comes even close to the quality and value that the Champion 73536i offers. Starting with the box, packing and instructions that the 73536i came in and ending with the solid quality and care obviously built into these generators, I'm confident I made the right decision...and I saved well over $500 in the process. A big bonus for me is the square, stacking format of the design. It suited the storage space in my RV perfectly. I believe that you simply cannot go wrong deciding on the Champion 73536i inverter generator.

I love it!

By Christopher W

Comments about Champion Power Equipment 1700/2000 Watt Portable Gas-Powered Inverter Generator:

I was wanting a quiet generator like the Honda 2000 for camping in our little tent trailer, wanting the obvious benefits of a generator but not wanting thew entire camp ground to hear it.
Well, so far its lived up to expectations on the quiet side, maybe only slightly louder than the Honda my friend paid $1000+ for. I got mine through Cabela's on black friday for only $400. What a steal!
Its a little bigger than the Honda with comparable watts but i can still carry it with one hand.
Although i haven't had it out camping just yet to really put it to the test, I am extremely happy with the product so far! should i decide i need more in the future, i'll just buy a second one and the parallel kit and still be hundreds ahead as compared to buying the Honda.
THANK-YOU CHAMPION!

Does the job!

By Ecko2

Comments about Champion Power Equipment 1700/2000 Watt Portable Gas-Powered Inverter Generator:

I bought two of these generators. I camp in a truck camper in the winter and needed to run a space heater for the really cold nights. In the 20's the generator ran my space heater for 5 hours, in the 40's it runs for 10 hours.They are relatively quiete especially on eco mode. I run my computer and charge my phone also. So far I am very happy, they fired right up when I got them.

Excellent Value

By eddieb2

from Pueblo West, CO

Verified Buyer

Comments about Champion Power Equipment 1700/2000 Watt Portable Gas-Powered Inverter Generator:

I looked for a 2000w lightweight generator that would handle all the electrical needs except the air conditioner for my 5th wheel trailer. My main power requirements are the microwave oven and coffeepot. I looked at several units in the 2000/1600w class and they all had good features and similar pricing. The Champion has a constant 1700w rating which was a nice extra. I have owned a 4000/3500 Champion for 5 years and it has never let me down but the weight is getting to be an issue as I get older.
I bought the Champion 2000w unit and inspected it for complete and tight connections as I had seen a review where assembly was incomplete...no issues with mine. I went through the initial start procedures and it fired up on the 2nd pull. The instructions call for an oil change after 5 hours run time so I ran the unit for that time under full RPM, Econo Mode and with a 1000w heater load for 3 1/2 hours. No issues. Changed the oil and plugged it into the 5th wheel and it performed as expected.
The weight is fine and the ability to start on one or two pulls is a reflection of good engine design. I have started and ran the unit a half a dozen times since and am pleased with the performance.
My only desire would be for some kind of fuel gauge, similar to the one on my 4000w/3500w unit.
Overall I"m pleased with the unit and expect years of use.

I was comparing this to the Honda EU2000i. I am glad I chose the champion. They are both equal as far as noise goes and the champion is half the price. The champion also seems to be built with the same attention to detail and quality.
