This generator is BAD ASS. I have two and paid $800 each. Ran mine for over 24 hours this weekend on a full load. No issues. Have done this several times. Will power a 13.5k BTU AC unit microwave and every other electronic in my travel trailer. Will also power a 15k BTU unit alone. Do not hesitate.

I just got a closeout on Costco's prior model which was actually the same generator without the parallel capability for $497. It works awesome. Champion has great customer service as well.

Louder than I thought but it runs great and starts really easy.

It's an inverter generator, which makes a big difference in the price. The same price for a non-inverter model probably isn't so great.

Posted a link to the remote electric start version, also on sale at walmart for $715 - a nice added feature if you're as lazy as I am. Spam filter caught link and is waiting for approval

EDIT - looks like Home Depot also currently have the 75531i at the same price of $641 and the 75537i at $715.

Does this have an option for feeding gas from a separate tank? I have the 2000w version of this and used the hell out of it (nearly 24/7 for 6 weeks)... the biggest drawback was we could only be away for 5-6 hours as it was running our A/C with our dogs inside and didn't want to broil them if we took a day trip.

Two things... first check on the maintenance... the 2000w had a 100hr maintenance schedule so I was literally changing oil and cleaning the spark suppressor ever 3 days. Also, if you use it in a heat environment... be careful of the screws for maintenance... if its like the 2000w it uses metal screws everywhere which is great but they are set in plastic... add a 90 degree day with generator heat and the plastic becomes soft... i lost two of my screw in locations to that problem in that 6 weeks last year.
