Just purchased this to run our 25' travel trailer when we don't have access to hookups and for NASCAR weekends at the track. Runs everything in the camper including the 13,500btu Dometic air conditioner. Not as quiet as my buddy's brand 'H' EU3000, but not unacceptable.

    Comments about Champion Power Equipment 2800/3100 Watt Portable Gas-Powered Inverter Generator:

    I just have to say this 3100watt generator is perfect for camping with your RV. I have had this thing now for 3 years and it runs great. Had a 2000watt Honda and it just didn't cut the mustard on output. Gave this 3100 a try and I just love it. I have had 2 issues though, the recoil started has worn out twice and champion costumer service was awesome. Sent me a new one for free every time. I would recommend this brand to everyone.

    Comments about Champion Power Equipment 2800/3100 Watt Portable Gas-Powered Inverter Generator:

    Wanted a super quiet generator that could start a twin turbine blower that requires 23 amps to start. Found this on sale and the reviews seemed favorable enough to try it. Far exceeded my expectations in power, ease of starting, and quiet operation. Filled the oil and gas, 2 pulls and it fired and ran. We have run it about 15 hours so far, so I don't know about longevity, but for the price I can buy 4 of these for what a comparable wattage Honda costs.

      Comments about Champion Power Equipment 2800/3100 Watt Portable Gas-Powered Inverter Generator:

      Bought this in anticipation of Hurricane Irma. When the power went out, I pulled it out of the box, oiled and gassed it up, and it started on the first pull. Running a large "dorm" fridge, small microwave, a couple of fans, a tv, some lamps, coffee pot, etc. in econony mode with no problems. So far, so good. I love that there was no assembly and that it worked on the first pull. Subtracted 1 star because the oil fill and drain are kind of awkward to work with unless the unit is elevated (e.g., table, tailgate).

          Runs great, did everything I needed it to do... quietly. Easily ran my RV air conditioner, and when i shut the AC off, it would run in economy mode through the night on one tank of fuel. Easy to start, easy to lift and maneuver. No complaints at all.

              Comments about Champion Power Equipment 2800/3100 Watt Portable Gas-Powered Inverter Generator:

              Awesome and worthy upgrade from Champion 2000w 73536i to the 3100w 75531i.
              Concerns about upgrading:
              1) that our gas consumption would go up
              2) the bigger unit might be harder to move around
              3) extra power may not be enough for RV a/c unit

              BAM! None of the above concerns are an issue.

              1) because the 75531i has more wattage, the lights and other items we run use only 25% of capacity, so we still get a full night [8 hours] of light with negligible amount of extra gas
              2) ok, the handle and wheels work! The 3100w unit is considerably heavier than the 2000w unit but the wheels plus rotating handle are balanced well enough to roll the 75531i over dirt.
              3) fires up the a/c unit with no problems. going to add a capacitor to give the a/c a bit more juice when starting up and ease the demand on the 75531i. With a full tank of gas [1.6 gal.] and the a/c running consistently, we get 5-6 hours of runtime. AMAZING!!!

              Overall, LOOOVE this new 3100w unit.

              p.s. Brian Downs@champion support assisted with information and experience that assisted us in making this decision. His [Champion] support level is EXCELLENTE!!!

                  I've had this a little over a year and it works great. Quiet, reliable generator. If the air conditioner in the camper is running with the microwave it will normally trip the generator though. Just shut it down when using the microwave.

                  Great generator great price. Could be a tad quieter and would compete with Honda. Maybe some deadened on the plastic panels? Still very quiet though. Only negatives are the tires are too small and the gas tank could be bigger.

                  After months of homework (reviews, blogs, word of mouth,leg work) We decided to go with the Champion 75531i and we haven't been disappointed. We purchased on Amazon on sale for $719 delivered in two days. Added oil and gas started with first pull. We use it to power our 27ft travel trailer it has no problem powering anything including ac. It is a bit louder then the red or blue brands but for the price you just can't go wrong.

                  I just received my new champion 3100 watt inverter model 75531i and I fell in love with it right out of the box. Adding the oil was very easy and appears to be just as easy to change with the drain tube already attached for when that time comes. After adding oil I put about a gallon of gas in it, choked it, pulled 3 times and it took off. Runs like a top. I could not believe how quiet it was. You can literally stand right next to it and have a conversation. I cannot wait to try it out camping this spring and summer. I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting a great inverter for camping. It is easy to handle which will be great for loading and unloading when getting to the campsite.

                  Works as described and I'm happy with the product. One must carefully determine your needs when buying a generator. I wanted something to push the air in my trailer if needed. I also enjoy drinking heavily and listening to loud music. Now the unit doesn't do much for my drinking but allows me to listen to loud music, watch my sports powering my satellite, refrigerator, water pump etc. simultaneously. Starts on the first pull every time. If I could change anything I'd make the gas tank bigger and the unit a little quieter but it's actually not that loud. I may make a box for it. Manufacturer said no problem as long as I install a fan in the box mounted as to withdraw exhaust (which will just plug into the unit). I'm going to party my rear off with it all day than shut off when I go to bed (unless I need to fun the air ) then I'm going to run off my battery at night just to use the lights and toilet. I'm using a very heavy duty chain and lock to secure it to my Truck. I purchased a "body alarm" at Target and made a trip wire from the generator to underneath my truck. If someone tries to steal it it screeches like a chuwowa on speed.Good luck , have fun and don't forget to change the oil after the first five hours. I'm using mobile 1 synthetic.

                  Amazing generator

                  I bought this generator over a year ago. I use it on my boat since my boat did not come with a generator. It powers the air conditioner, heat and coffee maker with ease. Then it happen. While loading it on the boat at the dock, I lost my balance and in the water we went. The generator was completely submerged in the lake! I thought it was ruined for sure! I was able to pull it out with some help. Then a buddy of mine suggested we let it dry out, change the oil and air filter. After letting it dry out for 3 hours and about 10 pulls of the rope the darn thing started and ran everything. It hasn't missed a beat since. It's an amazing product, especially if it survived my stupidity and a dip in the lake!

                  Campers dream!

                  We bought this to go to the races with our new camper! For 6 days it ran like a dream! It used minimal gas and the noise it made was almost non-existent! We were a little hesitant to get a generator due to the noise that some of them make, and didn't want to disturb the other Campers. This one has a 30 amp plug to rung the camper and the air conditioning and it worked like a charm! We actually got about 12 hours out of it on a full tank, not running the air (of course). I highly recommend this product, my husband and I are very happy with our purchase! Thank you.
