If your boon docking drains your batteries to the point where your lift won't bring the pop up down, your bigger issue is the wear on the batteries.

Draining batteries that far will reduce capacity of total available amps on future trips.

Hey Camaraderie;

Thanks for all that great info, never mind learning new stuff. When I get home I will check as you recommend.

Thanks again

A link to this would be helpful.

I might have gone with the Champions if I could have found this.
Though I looked for several weeks, I came up empty.
Is this new?

My recent searches still came up empty for Champion.

The Hondas have a fuel pump that creates a vacuum in the tank when it's not vented. The Champion generators are gravity fed so the siphon type won't work.

Perhaps if you added a small inline 12 volt fuel pump between the tank and the engine, you could "reverse engineer" a cap to work with the Honda/Yamaha one.
