Cabela's sale - Got good deal on generator

Picked up a Champion 2000w inverter at Cabela's today. If you're a club member and you put it on your card, it'll give you $75 off over $500. It's good for another couple of weeks, I think. Bass Pro may have the same deal.

They also gave me the military discount on top of it, so I went ahead and got it. I think it was in store only.

I got this one:
https://www.cabelas.com/product/CHAM...OR/3169352.uts

For me, with both discounts, it was fairly comparable in price, and it has the fuel gauge. A lot of folks say it isn't worth it, but for the same price, I'll take it.

Plus, I get more Cabela's points.

BTW, the deal is good for anything in the store, except guns and ammo (I think that's what I was told).

I just used it for the generator. I figured I'd share the info.

There doesn't look to be a 30 amp receptacle. so if you run 2 in parallel how would this run A/C?

The parallel kit on most inverters has a 30 amp built into it.

That's Champion's newer 2000w inverter generator. It's over 2lbs lighter than the older one that Walmart has on sale.

You'd have to get a parallel kit:

There are 2 others you can use, but that one allows you to stack the generators, although I don't see the advantage to doing that.

The stacking kit looks like it would be a big hassle to fill the gas tank on the bottom unit.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

I rather like the dual gen setup.
Easy being able to move the individual gens as they are under 50# ea.

Using both with the parallel kit allows me to run my 1500btu A/C in the 5er.

I made a simple wheeled (small casters) platform to set it all on to move it around if needed.

Nope, nothing needs to be disconnected, it takes 2 seconds to lift the top one off to gas up the lower one.

I bought the same new Champion inverter generator from Tractor Supply before Christmas. Good sale price, too. $380 pre tax.
No 2000 watt rated inverter generator comes with a 30TT jack except for the designated Honda Companion one designed specifically for paralleling with the Honda EI2000. Lots of parallel wiring kits available with and without a 30TT jack at varying price points.
