Does your 2000 have a battery for electric start? My Honda 2000 was a no go. And we camp at elevation of 7400 this week. Installed a micro air easy start dropped start watts 70% Thanks

Champion Dual Fuel Inverter Generator.

We chose the Champion Dual Fuel Inverter Generator with electric start. Got it on Amazon for $950USD. It is very quiet for its size and runs on eco mode even with 13000 btu AC running on full. I highly recommend this unit.

About the Champion, had mine for 3 years, happy with it.


#1 Be careful with the remote start because you have to leave the power on to make it work. It will kill the battery, I've been through 2 now. Added a little solar panel to keep it charged.



#2 It does not run in eco mode powering an AC. Yes, you may have the switch set to eco mode, but it automatically goes into the full power mode if the draw is more than eco mode can handle.

Be careful with cheap solar... they can drain your battery during the night if they don't have the proper diode.

True it ramps up RPMs when starting the AC in ECO mode. But it sure runs a lot quieter when the AC cycles off. Both saving on fuel and noise.
