My hope is we can get a little discussion going here about it. Its priced lower than most sites even list the single fuel version. My understanding is that this is a Costco exclusive item

the dual fuel ability is great for those who already have propane in their RV. Keep in mind that even though it's dual fuel, if you ever run gasoline in this, you still have to drain and run it dry to keep the carb from getting all gunked up during winter storage.

Bonus feature, it can parallel with two units? wow...

I bought this at Costco the last time that it was on sale- it's a great unit. The best way to keep this thing running forever is to switch it over to propane mode after you have run it on gas and try to start it a few times to get the rest of the gas out of the carbs.

Anyone know of a similar (inverter generator) model that runs on natural gas? I'd like the option of hooking up to my home supply.

How do you get advanced notice of Costco's upcoming sale items? Do they post it somewhere?

If you're a member then you will receive a booklet in the mail. You may also find scans of the booklet on various sites prior to the official sale date. Once the sale is valid they are listed on costco.com

I got this dual fuel from Amazon for my Class B Van .....it is sorta loud but when the a/c is running it doesn't keep you awake. I got a two year extended warranty for only $20 due to the low price.
