I have a remote start Honda 3000. No need to manually choke in the cold or at altitude. But you still have to manually turn on and off they key prior to using the remote. So no point in having a remote start.
Like the 3000 OK but would not buy elec start or remote if/when I buy the next unit.
Next time will buy the 7000, but not the Handi 7000.
I have the gen mounted over the propane tanks.
Prob will carry the 7000 in the bed of the truck.
Have run the gen in the rain many times, but prefer not to.
