I love my Champion 2000i. I only have a couple of hundred hours on it but it runs great. I had a warranty issue due to my fault and they covered everything without a question. Mine is straight gasoline only, not propane/gas.
We used it to top our batteries off at 9000 ft and it had plenty of power at that altitude. I actually had to pull the starter cord twice at 9000 ft which was unusual.

I had very good service with a Champion 3000 inverter generator for many years. Cheers

Champion will help you even for 20 year old machines.
They are that good.

Champion has great customer service, and many places for repair, if ever needed. Now add in the great price, and what's not to like?

I do wish my 2K 100565 would have 3,500W, but stay the same weight, size, and shape. I know...the more you get, the more you want!

I've got a Champion 3100 and although a little bigger and a bit more expensive, it's a great value for what you get. Remote control electric starter and enough power to run our AC unit. Very quiet, reliable and easy to move with the wheels on the front. I'll admit it's a little heavy though.

A bit off topic, but in all my 15 years of boondocking I can count on less than one hand the number of RVers running air from a portable generator, even in 90+ weather.

Not sure how many extra fingers you have, but you can count me as one of them. I have a HF Predator 3500 that I bought this summer when the campground we were staying at lost power. The power company said power may not come on for 2-3 days and it was nearly 100 degrees in the day time. So I found a Harbor Freight and ran out to buy one mainly so I didn't lose everything in my fridge (residential fridge). Anyways, that 3500 ran the AC easily. But if I remember right, we were pulling close to 1700-1800 watts with the AC and other misc items. So a 2000 watt genny likely wouldn't cut it. [emoticon]

As a side note, the campground (Jellystone in Natural Bridge, VA) refunded us 50% of our fees for the entire week even though power ended up only being off for about 24 hours. So that helped pay for the generator.

Of course, I'm not saying 'nobody' does, it just seems quite rare compared to the number of people on here who want a generator to run their air. And it does take a lot of expensive gas, it's messy, and a bit of work.

Then again, perhaps I only run into people with generators that aren't capable of running air. The most generator use I see is fixing dinner and watching TV! [emoticon]
