So far champion Yamaha and Honda are the only ones that have high altitude jet. If anybody knows of others I would like to know.

Yes, on first Boliy I owned I soldered and redrilled the jet myself. On second one I bought from bottom line trading. I won't make mistake again and sell my Boliy with camper.

I have a Power House 2700 watt. We have used it 4 years now in Colorado camping at 1000' and do not have to rejet.

I have used a little 900 watt gen to plug in a regular 3 stage battery charger hooked directly to the battery. Charged up in short time.

Thanks, good to know. I'm hearing more folks say the same thing. I may be worried for nothing. Does your's have fuel injection or a carb. Some of the Power Houses are fuel injected. Wish the little ones were.

A generator that isn't jetted for altitude will run at high altitude. However, it will run less efficiently then one that is jetted. It will run rich, risk fouling plugs quicker, risk clogging the spark arrestor, and use more gas than one is correctly jetted for altitude.

The 3% loss in power output for every 1000 ft gain in altitude assumes the carb is jetted properly. Not rejetting for altitude will increase those losses.

The only time you don't need to rejet is if you are lucky enough to have a fuel injected generator.

By the way the lowest point in Colorado is 3,315 feet above sea level.
