This unit came with my house purchase back in '17, (and am very glad of it!). With the frequent outages in my region I'm grateful to have this Champion.
I've had zero issues with it, (knock on wood). It's a heavy weight, (approx 225lbs) the 439cc engine runs everything I've put to it to date. It's got a good amount of volume to it, (74db) but no concern out here, pretty darn good on fuel. No complaints.



Notice the paint pen mark of the plug and gen panel. Makes for a much quicker hookup with no guess work involved. (It's the little things that help)



The set-up I've been using for the house interior with the Champion L14-30 125/250V Y adapter.



I pulled the head cover off and had a look at the G-N bonded wire hookup. I'm about finished with switching my setup over to an interlock system hookup and decided to remove the neutral from the ground as that seems to be the consensus out here. (The Y adapter setup above will not be used now with the floating neutral on this generator)
I also did an RPM, voltage and Hz check, all 3 needed a bit of adjusting. 62 Hz and 123 volts on all legs now with a 3700 RPM. That adjustment screw on the AVR is super small, pics are deceiving of that little guy.
