the most noise comes from the engine, not the exhaust.
this has been tried with the Champion, with virtually no change in noise level.

What is the issue with camping world? Currently I do not see anyone less expensive than they are. in fact most are more expensive.

I placed an order a few days ago for a number of items. Please tell me they will arrive before our first trip on New Years weekend!

Usually CW is pretty good with shipping but you are ordering items during the most busiest time of the year for retailers and shippers. I know all of my orders have come through UPS and usually within a week. Hope it works out for you.

I while back it seemed I looked all over
for a generator that would run an AC unit
could find nothing for under a thousand dollars
and sure I will admit
I have always liked the Honda's, Yamaha's etc etc
they just seem to run forever
but
for the price this Champion does not seem bad
no one has answered my question
where is it made
I would figure it must be China
in a way that would still make me want to buy
Honda's, Yamaha's etc etc
since I think many might be made in the States now
or even if not I do not mind supporting Japan
got me torn here with this issue as one can see
going to keep an eye on this thread
as today I keep an open mind
wishing a blessed day for all

Champion generators are made in china ..If.. someones going to use it boondocking .. rest stops...walmart parking lots .. who cares ?? For $300 bucks ?? If YOU are staying at a "modern campground" with electric anyway .. it wont be used to annoy anyone !!

They are made in China as is evidenced by the bottom of the front page from the manual http://www.championpowerequipment.co...al-english.pdf

I bought mine for power outages at home and it works fine. A bit quieter than my lawn mower, but not nearly as quiet as some expensive generators. As dretired points out, if you are in a campground with electricity you won't use it, and if you are boondocking who cares?

Anyone here have actual experience with Champion Generators? Advice? I am pretty tempted to pull the trigger just to check it out..

A friend of mine had a noisy generator (his nephew's I think) and took it to a muffler shop to try to quiet it down. After some experimentation they decided most of the noise was mechanical rather than exhaust. Wayne

Yeah, I would think so. The exhaust on engines of this size are small. Most of the noise just comes from the all the activity inside and not the exhaust.

At a Glance

The Extreme Max EXT3000 Electric Start Generator is capable of handling the power demands of most RV's along with air conditioning units! With a a 2800 Watts Maximum and 2600 continuous output. Features 20 amp and 30 amp receptacles.


I thought that it took more Watts to start my AC ??
