    Champion 1400 / 1800 Watt Generator Start-Up & Run Test
    Rubber Duc



    Published on Nov 13, 2013
    More On My Blog: http://rubberduc.blogspot.com | Just bought a new generator for use at the track. I wanted a light and compact unit that was quiet so it would not irritate myself or my neighbors both at home and at the track doing track days. This Champion 1400 /1800 generator seems to be the perfect fit. It starts very easy and is very quiet compared to a normal generator. You can carry on a conversation from about 10 feet away easily and if you put it behind a structure (car, wall etc.) from 20' you hardly know it is there. I wasn't willing to pay a grand for the Honda / Yammy inverter/generators even though i'm sure they are worth every penny. The only question will be longevity, I'll try to do a follow-up video after getting some hours on it.

    Champion Inverter Generator Review after 5 Years of Use
    Love Your RV



    Published on Apr 1, 2016
    See blog post - http://www.loveyourrv.com/champion-ge...

    Our pair of Champion 2000 watts inverter generators are 5 years old now and seen a ton of use.

    In this video, I demo my two Champion Generators showing them working in parallel to power my RVs air conditioner

    I also give you some information about the inverter generator and why I picked the Champion brand to power our full-time RVing lifestyle and boondocking adventures.

    I give the Champions the old Love Your RV! 2 thumbs up. Great value for the money spent.

    See previous blog posts about my generators including how I maintain them - http://www.loveyourrv.com/champion-20...

    Generac XG8000E Portable Generator Conversion Natural Gas - Snorkel Kit
    silverbankruptcy



    Published on Oct 28, 2013
    Generac XG8000E Portable Generator to Conversion Natural Gas. Full Review – Generac XG8000E: http://www.generatoraid.com/generator...
    We Converted this Excellent Generator to Natural Gas using the US Carburetion, Inc. http://www.propane-generators.com/ Snorkel Kit with their Type C Conversion Kit. Benefits are that you do not need to cut the frame and its a one piece easy to install with attached gasket, and without the one inch Donut that restricts air intake and possibly reduces some power. Negatives are that its a silicon tube that you should cover with a tube to prevent fraying on sharp metal, and it could restrict closing of Carburetor that could possibly be an issue in a cold climate. We had a Problem with getting 60 HZ (we were getting 55 HZ) under a load, with the Gemini Valve. We Took the Unusual Step of Removing the Valve Spring Cover Completely by screwing it off, then Underneath that is a Screw. We then Turned the Valve Spring Tightening Screw two turns Counterclockwise TWO TURNS NOT MORE to reduce tension on the Valve to allow the gas to flow and increase the HZ to 60 or so. This is an Unusual step that you shouldn't do unless you cannot get 60 HZ by Enriching the Mix as Much as Possible, but can get 60 HZ by Holding the Priming Button. This means that the gas valve is too Tight. We were only getting 55 HZ at first, which is why we only had 110 Volts at first. If you do adjust the Spring Valve as we did, you Must Check that the Valve does Prevent Gas from Escaping when Generator is Not in Use. More than two Turns can make the spring too loose and result in Gas Leaking when Generator shuts off or anytime it's not in use. I previously used the traditional Donut Adapter from http://www.propanecarbs.com/ to easily convert my generator to natural gas. This generator however has a carburetor that is not circular so that adapter will not fit. Contact them for more options.

    AFFILIATE LINK DISCLOSURE: Friends, making a quality Loloho video is kind of like making sausage – only slightly more violent. It's a ridiculous amount of work that typically involves high dollar camera drops, blue-screen-of-death computer crashes, and at least one angry shotgun wielding old man shouting, “Hey! Get the hell outta here!” Once the final video is posted, rewards here on YouTube are few and far between (unless you are a masochist who enjoys being verbally abused by anonymous trolls). One saving grace is our affiliate links. JUST CLICKING THESE LINKS HELPS TO SUPPORT OUR LITTLE SHOW. Think of this clicking as like tipping - except that it doesn't cost you anything extra! If you eventually make a purchase via one of our affiliate links, we will receive a few pennies (and Sean typically invests these pennies in duct tape and video gear). Again, it doesn't cost you anything to click these links, and it's a great help to us. As always, safe travels, happy camping, and THANK YOU!

    Champion 9000W Dual Fuel LPG / Gasoline Generator
    madscientisthut



    Published on Mar 25, 2016
    I just got this Champion dual fuel generator delivered from Costco, it was on sale for $599 normally $799. I set it up for this video and did some test runs, the next morning the power was out from a spring snow storm. The power was out for 22 hours since some power poles snapped when trees toppled over on to the power lines from the wet heavy spring snow. I forgot to mention the generator also came with a nice 15A/Hr sealed lead acid battery.

    Generac iQ: The Quietest Generator EVER!!
    The Fit RV



    Published on Aug 14, 2015
    It's hard to describe exactly how quiet this portable generator is. I recently ran a noise test of RV generators. Had the new Generac iQ been in the mix, it would have won without looking back. I don't think the noise, as mixed into the video, gives you the full sense of exactly how quiet this thing is, but if you listen, we're not even raising our voices to talk over it. It's quieter, under load, than the typical Onan is under no load.

    Best of all, it's going to retail for just $799! That's less than everyone's darling, the Honda. And it's quieter than the Honda to boot! (And nobody is paying us to say so.)

    You can learn more about the Generac iQ generator here:
    http://www.generac.com/all-products/g...

    Briggs and Stratton P2200 Generator Review
    Fernbark Frist



    Published on Mar 16, 2016
    I received one of these to try out, so please save the comments telling me I should have bought a Honda or a Yamaha. It worked really good for me. I was surprised by it exceeding the run time listed on the box. It is quiet like you would expect.

    This generator works even better than I thought it would. The box says it will run 6 hours on a quarter load (425 watts). I ran it at 450-800 watts for 6.5 hours. I didn't think there was any way it was going to last the advertised time let alone go longer on a heavier load.

    I ran heaters, dehumidifier, lights, stereo, tv, and a PlayStation 4. The heater was on low, but I had them all running. No problems with the anything except the LED lights I have flickered a bit. Not too bad, but if you looked right at the light you could see it. It seems like you can run it at the low setting right up to about 500 watts and then the motor speeds up.

    It is very quiet. I have another inverter generator, and they are about the same. I recorded about 65db at 7 meters, the box says it should be 59. My normal conversational voice is 77db.

    It does have the ability to parallel to another generator of the same brand. What is nice is that you can get the slightly larger Briggs and Stratton generator and hook the two together and really up the power.

    I like the "H" handle on the top. It is really easy to pick up, although you won't want to be carrying it for too long.

    I am not a fan of the screen in the gas fill area. It is super hard to see if you have it all filled up (I spilled a bit) and you cannot peek in the tank to see how much is left while it is running.

    All in all a very nice unit.

    Exoman fixes and starts hydrolocked Honda generator during Hurricane Matthew!
    Banshee Moon



    Published on Oct 8, 2016
    Exoman fixes and starts hydrolocked generator during Hurricane Matthew! There are flood and tornado warnings blaring on the TV and Iphone and Exoman struggles to start the generator. He tries starter fluid and it 's a no-go. He then pours fuel system cleaner (Seafoam) directly into the carburetor. While leaning the generator back he hydrolocked the engine. He then removes the spark plug and pumps the oil out turning the engine over and starts it right up!

    How to repair a Honda generator that won't start.

    Harbor freight generator wont start
    BCtruck, rebuild, repair,repurpose



    Published on Feb 23, 2014
    just a quick "how to" when you have a genny that wont start. These litte gennys are great,but they are persnickity and need some careful attention to fuel,mixture,and shutting off the fuel valve while in storage. my new procedure will be to run it dry, before putting it away.

    DIY Generator Maintenance To Prepare For Alternate Electric During Winter Snow Storm Power Outages
    Dan Rogers



    Published on Nov 20, 2014
    Having a generator is a great first step in being prepared, but remember that generator maintenance is crucial in being ready for winter. Preparing for winter involves more than just bringing in your fire wood and keeping "extra food on hand". During the winter it is 80% more likely for the power to go out than during the warm weather months. Having a generator is a good idea, but there is some responsibility, maintenance, and know how involved. A generator cannot just sit unused for long periods of time and be expected to go and start right up and operate properly. Fuel will go bad (and faster than you think too) oil needs to be changed, batteries need to be charged, and generators need to be ran and cycled regularly. Not to mention that the gasoline stores / reserves you have need to be rotated and swapped out.

    Champion generator test run, purchased at Tractor Supply. Storm preparation.
    David Jastram



    Published on Dec 21, 2014
    I finished (finally) installing the wiring and inlet box for my back up generator. Everything works well.

    Earlier this week there was an ice storm that knocked out power 30 miles West & 30 miles North, so I still feel good about this project.

    Honda Generator 2 year Cold Start Test (eu2000i)
    toprun95



    Published on Jul 20, 2012
    This generator has not been started for approx 2 years prior to the making of this video. After several days I perform more cold starts to gain the best idea of how it will act in the real world. I also compare this generator to another lower quality model from a different manufacturer that I own.

    Honda EU2000i improvement. One of a kind.
    Wally Knorr Canadian Hunter



    Published on Nov 25, 2012
    I hope that this is the most helpful video about how to fix the weak spots of the Honda EU200i generator.
    The video will not explain a lot and will not teach you step by step, it might not be a DIY for dummies, it simply shows the general idea and how to implement, and it leaves lots of room for your improvisation and improvement.
    In order to understand what it is all about I strongly recommend to watch the following 2 great videos first:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQ5O7P...

    and

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FeFMnv...

    And I suggest you also watch some other videos about extended fuel tanks for a generator, eg. the ones below:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0U-rMa...
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vICSXG...

    And once you visit the Ebay stores and see all the resolutions they are offering (and their price) you will appreciate my video.
    Thanks to all the nice people for sharing their videos and ideas.
