Rated 2 out of 5 by from Breaker keeps tripping Bought it for my camper and it worked great the 1st 3 times I used it but then all of a sudden its breaker keeps tripping and wont reset. Then I go to genorator and push in and keeps tripping. Then all of a sudden it will begin to work perfectly again then couple hours later starts tripping out again. Tried to contact champion power by phone and email and yes they dont respond back. So either this covid19 has them shut down or they just don't care about there customer service. I have a total of 140 hrs on it. Engine starts up no problem at the moment but just that breaker issue is the onlyiasue I have had with it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dual fuel generator Just got this generator preparing for hurricane season. Liked the fact can use propane or gas. Picked this generator based on reviews. It is a little louder than I would have liked but overall seems like a good buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EASY SETUP This was very easy to setup the first time in under 10 minutes I had it out of the box and running on gas. Using this as backup power at our up north cabin. Love that it runs on the two fuel sources. To break it in we ran it and powered our electric smoker to smoke some chickens. Worked great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good I bought this after the virus hit in early 2020. We seem to have a lot of power outages and every time it happens I say I'm going to buy a generator, but never do. When I saw this, it caught my eye as a good deal so I did some research first to see what others have said and experienced. I would prefer an engine that was well known and reliable like Kohler or Honda, but that would double the price and from what I found, there are not many issues with the Champion engines. I have only started it to let it break in, and so far that has been in 3 one hour increments. It is loud, and I have been looking at a way to make a portable enclosure of some type that will quiet it without hindering the ability of the air cooled engine to stay cool. The one thing I was not expecting was that it says not to let it get wet like from rain or snow. If the power goes out in a rainstorm or snow storm, it will have to be protected from the elements while it is running--I thought that was odd. I might fashion a small portable lean to or something like that where it can sit in case it is raining or snowing when I need it. This might make it easier to attach sound deadening material to quiet it as well.

Battery required to run on gasoline? I was informed that the dual fuel feature will require a working battery to be attached to operate the fuel cut out solenoid to separate the propane/gas . Will pull rope start without battery with gasoline?

Asked by: Structureman
You need a battery in place to open the fuel cut solenoid for gasoline operation. It is unlikely you will be near generator of this size, without a vehicle around as well. If you are in a pinch, you can use a set of jumper cables to the machines battery leads to get the solenoid open.

Does the champion duel fuel 7500 have auto idle? While running but not in use the idle drops down.

Asked by: BrennonLee
In our portable line, only the inverters will feature an auto idle. The open frame machines like this will run at a constant RPM of 3,600 to create the 60Hz of frequency used. Fuel consumption is still based on load size as the engine will work harder to maintain this RPM with a load attached.

Is the gas tank plastic or metal? Someone told me they have a Champion generator that has a metal tank and they have had issues with rust particles coming from the tank causing issues.

Asked by: Survivor53
The fuel tank is metal, as are nearly all in this category, but rust is caused by water, so there may be some additional storage steps the user can take to prevent this from happening.

I have a residential propane line going to a swimming pool heater. Is it feasible to tie into the house propane line to power this generator?

Asked by: IBEWJW
Yes. The generator requires 1/2 PSI with a max flow rate of 152,000 BTU/hr when under full load. If you can supply this to the 5/8" Male JIC propane fitting on the panel, the generator will run correctly. Thank you.

Will this Generator run a clothes dryer?

Asked by: Jschim
It depends on if it is gas or electric. An electric heating element may take quite a bit of power. We provide the wattage capability of the generator, I would suggest checking with your machine's literature or call the manufacturer to find the voltage and amperage rating.

7500 watt duel fuel. Can this be operated at 20 degree or less temerature

Asked by: store605
When your product is needed your product may be operated at temperatures as low as -15°C (5°F). If the product is exposed to temperatures outside this range during storage, it should be brought back within this range before operation. In any event, the product must always be operated outdoors, in a well-ventilated area and away from doors, windows and other vents.

Does this come with a camper style plug so that I can connect to my electrical panel at home?

Asked by: Rbell
It sounds like you are referring to a 240V 50A connection known as a NEMA 14-50 that is on large RV's. This machine is equipped with a 240V 30A connection known as a NEMA L14-30. There are plenty of adapters available. The generator puts out less than your system can handle, and will work perfectly fine supplying its rated output to the home this way. For further guidance, please contact us at SUPPORT@CPEAUTO.COM. We can help you find the cord if needed.
