In this review of the Champion portable inverter generator, model number 75537i, we’ll look at the pros and cons of this compact inverter generator. While the generator is designed for use on an RV, it is not limited to that application.
Pros of the Champion 75537i Generator
Cons of the Champion 75537i Generator
It has a starting 3100 watts and then maintains 2800 watts while running, so it cannot support a 3100 watt RV AC. If you use this RV compatible generator to run your 2800 or lower wattage AC, you may not be able to do much else. If you are running other appliances in the RV and the AC kicks in, it may shut down the generator.
The gas tank only holds 1.6 gallons of gas. And the eight hours is a maximum. Expect to have to refill it after six hours. Take extra gas cans to be able to run the unit all day.
You cannot return this generator to most sellers after you add fluids. This means that if it fails almost immediately after you buy it and try it, you have to go through Champion’s customer service to get it repaired. If Champion takes several weeks to repair it – and they sometimes do – and it still doesn’t work, you absolutely cannot return it to any sellers at that point.
This unit is not dual fuel like the Champion model 100263 inverter generator.
This is an eco-friendly generator, suitable for environmentally friendly users and those in California. This unit is more expensive than the dual fuel Champion generator and some of the less eco-friendly models. It is powerful enough to run mid-power RV air conditioners, while it is designed to power almost anything with a plug – including your smart phone. Few portable inverter generators can power so many things around the RV and campsite, though it cannot power everything you want to run.
