champion duel fuel generator

Im debating purchasing the champion duel fuel 3800 watt generator and I was wondering if anyone has one and set it to run off the propane bbq quick disconnect on there trailer. Also if you have one just how loud is it?

I can tell you that it's too loud to use in a campground. If you were out in the "boonies", about 5 miles from the nearest camper, it would be a great gennie .

I think I may go with the champion power equipment 3100 watt inverter in that case.

I have the 3100. It runs my 15K BTU AC just fine. I think it is pretty quiet as well.

Ended up biting the bullet on a Honda EU2000I,I figure 1 should run everything minus the A/C.Later on down the road I'll pick up the EU2000I companion and a parallel kit.

Before Easter I bought a Champion 3100/2800 watt Inverter/Generator at Costco after doing some research. Champion has a good warranty and part are available for all their units they sell. After putting oil and gas in it, it started at the first pull. Got already 12 hours runtime on the unit and is very quiet (57db)and performs very well even tested the A/C with it. It sure beats the price by far of Yamaha and Honda. But every one its own!

Not to mention the Costco warranty!
