This is a pretty specific need to be posting about but hoping someone else can find a deal on something they are after using the same logic... Been passively looking for a generator, like the idea of an inverter style generator so the engine doesn't always have to run at 3,600RPM, quieter more fuel efficient... Decided I like the Champion 100263 "3400-Watt Dual Fuel RV Ready Portable Inverter Generator with Electric Start" pretty much these always sell for $1,100-$1k, lowest price on Amazon ever has been $875, for me I would have to pay tax still so totals ~$945, on Acme regular price today is $1,029 - 11% coupon (WESALUTEYOU = $113.19), + $0 Tax + $0 shipping = $915.81. Figuring there will be many other deals to be made for other heavy equipment but I just noticed how I can work this out for this Generator.

Note a stupid and irritating part of the design of these dual fuel generators is there is an internal battery you need to maintain; the generator will not start at all if the battery is not charged!!! Even pull start! I believe this is likely due to an electrically operated solenoid used by the propane inlet??? Very inconvenient!!

Great price on that generator. I hate how people will vote down something just because they don't like what is posted.

Not trying to douse anyone's hopes but I'm dealing with a 75537i model of this with the remote start. It sucks. I have a pull start Honda that is 10x more reliable and puts out real DC. This thing puts out unfiltered DC at 24-26v on the 12v port. Check the manual and wiring diagram. I about lost it seeing how poorly engineered it is. I had to replace the battery already since it's crappy and deep cycles when not in use and on standby. Interstate wanted $109 just for the internal batt. Now I have to cobble together a "standby" charger for my "standby" generator. Thinking that the Predator 3500w from harbor freight might actually be better based on YouTuber reviews.

I managed to get the 3100 wireless start champion generator for $600 during the walmart/amazon price war mess back in May. I have not tested mine out yet as I have had no time yet.

Seattlez. You are correct and your fellow campers will hate you. Noisy. Just buy a honda 2000i or stay on the porch.

I bet at least a quarter of the people using this site nowadays have no idea what you're talking about.

I got a honda eb2800i from vipoutlets (item #122559065384 if you don't believe me) for $677 - ebay bucks which was less. Came wrapped in plastic and looked brand new. Not sure where seller is getting these but it was shipped from liquidation.com I am guessing from the address. Home Depot returns. I could kick myself for not ordering the eu2000i they had also. It was $750 I believe. I have seen them get new stock a couple of times.

Thanks OP! Been looking for one for a couple of months. Got a Champion Dual Fuel for 916. Don't think I can get a better deal even around the black friday.
