The final Champion Open Frame Generator we are going to review is the 100397. This is the most expensive generator on the list and does look a little different in its design.
Overall dimensions are 22.8 x 24.8 x 26.3 inches. It is the second-largest generator that we have included.
This one weighs in with an overall weight of 123.9 pounds. This is the heaviest generator on this list.
While it comes with a wheel kit for easy transportation, lifting this generator in and out of your RV storage may be difficult.
What is great about this model is that it is dual-fueled and you can use both gasoline and propane for the engine.
The engine capacity is 3.4 gallons. The engine size is 224cc and only has a run time of 10.5 hours, which is not as high as the other generators we have featured.
It is powerful and has a built-in surge protector to stop the generator from overloading. It has an electric start and comes with 3 years limited warranty.
You also receive lifetime technical support too.
The generator comes with the following electrical outlets:
1 x 120V 30A locking
1 x 120V 30A RV
2 x 120V 20A
Comes with a wheel kit

We think that Champion is a solid brand offering top quality equipment.
Their line of premium Champion 4000 watt generators offers a wide variety of features and combinations including:
They all operate at a very quiet 64dBA which makes them great for campsites, tailgates, and overnight use.
They are fairly priced, backed up by good customer service and come with a three-year warranty should anything go wrong. The Champion website has a great tool you can use to find the right generator.
What is the difference between an inverter generator and a standard generators?
In terms of power generators, inverters are better. They are quieter, smaller, lighter, and more efficient than regular generators.
Standard generators spin at a constant RPM. Inverters use technology to regulate power by what is needed. This allows them to conserve energy, run quieter, and produce lower emissions.
What does it mean to run RV/camping generators in parallel?
Running in parallel means you can connect two or more generators for more power. Most manufacturers sell a parallel kit that makes it easy to connect two generators.
