Costco Has Champion 2.8kW Inverter Gen on Sale

I'm not pushing this but I saw this and thought I'd share it. Costco has Champion's 2.8kW (3.1kW peak) Digital Inverter Gas Generator on sale for $699. That's $100 off the normal price through the end of this month. The reviews seem to indicate it's a good buy. For you guys that like to boondock and need something more powerful than say a Honda/Yamaha 2kW inverter, this might be the ticket. Check it out.

Costco also has this Smarter Tools 2000 watt inverter available.

Anybody had experience with either of these compared to Honda?

I always used Honda to run my business remote base and know they last longer than the generic brands. But that was a whole different animal - 150 days a year, 8-12 hours a day.

Great price. I'm really considering it. I wonder how much louder it really is than the Honda...

I just bought one. If it's to loud or doesn't work right back to Costco it goes.

That's one thing with Costco. If you don't like it (for any reason), you return it and get your money back. No BS.

Front Panel already has the RV30AMP Receptacle on it... That's a plus...

I received the generator since it is snowing again the update on how it works will have to wait. It does come with a lot of accessories like USB plug adapter and jumper cables. Delivery was pretty quick.
