Generators

I'm looking at generators. I've seen and heard the Honda EU2000i in action and it's very quiet, which I like. Has anyone ever used the Champion 3100 Inverter? I'm wondering how quiet it is, compared to the Honda.
Thanks

It's not as quiet but close to it.
IMHO, the Champion 3100 is a winner.
I own a Honda 2000w but if I'd ever need something bigger, I'd sell my Honda and buy the 3100.

Probably can do a site search and find a lot of opinions. When looking at decibel specs, the distance from the generator for the stated db makes a huge difference.

I own a Champion 3100 inverter generator. I had a Honda, I fully endorse the Champion.

I'm very happy with our Champion 3100. I find it to be quiet, and always starts 1 pull.

Another option would be two 2000 watt Champions and a parallel kit. You could use just one to run basic stuff like the microwave etc. Then hook the two together whenever you want to use the AC. The Champ 3100 is 58db and the Champ 2000 is 53 db.

Dometic recommends no less the 2500 running watts to properly run their a/c units

My Champion 3100 inverter generator handles our motorhome air conditioner just fine.

I prefer the Boliy over Champion because it has a higher rated and continuous power rating. The Boliy is rated for 3000 watts continuous and the Champion is rated for 2800 watts continuous.
