From Champion's web site:

I learned you have to call quickly on Hondas. And beware of scammers.
Running on propane reduces power by 18% (I'm told) so the 3000 Champion on propane is only 2500 W.

I ended up with a Honda EU3000is. Here's my reasoning:
1. The 7000 wouldn't fit under my bed cover
2. The 7000 was just more money than I wanted to spend.
3. On my former MH, I didn't run the...
