Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful and quiet I bought the GP3000i for my camper and I am impressed that I could run everything even the 8000 watt a/c without any problem. It’s fairly lightweight and fits right under the camper to keep it out of the direct sun or rain very happy with this product, oh and easy starting also!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Got gp3000i for my rv less than a month old. Run Ac ok, but the micro wave was also turn on at the same time overload. Overload led came on and voltage drop out which is to be expected. Went to shut it off and restart to reset to recover, it would not shut off. Had to unplugged the spark plug to shut it off? Started again voltage was correct ran AC fine, but could not shut it off. Looks like the Ignition module went bad? Called one of the company that was recommended for warranty they would not do genrac warranty repairs? Took it to another repair out fix to get it repaired they copy my 3yr extended warranty information which I had purchased as well. Not a good feeling about the warranty issue. Product may have issue with the ignition / control module? Will find out. Other than not being able to reset the unit after overload, whether automatic recovering or restarting unit, it still work fine. They need to look at redesigning the ignition/control module to be more robust. Waiting see see what the results will be? It’s a good product if they fix this issue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from *Almost* Perfect We have a trailer RV, and a 13,500 BTU A/C, so needed the 3,000+ startup power. I've been researching generators off & on for ~6 months and finally pulled the trigger on the Generac GP3000I for the following reasons: - Low weight (60 lbs w/o gas) - Low decibels - High power (able to handle our A/C) - Made in Wisco (where I live) I would give it 5 stars, but unfortunately there isn't a perfect generator out there at this level. Ideally the GP3000I would have the following features: - Fuel shutoff switch (so you can run the carb dry, not sure why this isn't a standard feature!) - Wheels (yes, 60 lbs is a lot lighter than comparable brands with this power output (aka Predator etc @ 100 lbs), but some casters would be nice. Lastly, the instructions could be a little more clear about the oil (they ship you 0.6L that fills capacity so you can put it all in, but that isn't readily clear). Otherwise, very happy with how quiet the unit is, low weight, sharp appearance, and it started up on the 2nd pull.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly what is advertises. I purchased the gp3000i to use with my rv. It starts and runs the a/c with no issues with the standard battery charger working and the fridge running on electric. It fires right up with gentle pulls and is easy on fuel considering the output. Did I mention that it is quiet, so quiet that at full load you can stand right over it and have a conversation, without yelling. Nice package and light enough to move easily, well done. I'd buy it again, wouldn't hesitate at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very adequate as a home backup I purchased two 3000i generators as emergency backup power for my home and my daughter's home. I wanted to run emergency power for two refrigerators, one freezer and outlets in my office for tv, computer, usb charging and minimal led lighting. I hired an electrician to install a sub-panel and inlet for the generator to handle the 4 circuits I wanted to use. I checked the power needs for all the appliances. Since it weighs 60lbs I bought a cart for it and it is very easy to move from the garage to the outdoor sub-panel. All I have to do when the power goes out is to turn off a 50 amp breaker in the main and sub panels, turn on a 30 amp breaker in the sub-panel, plug in the generator and turn on each of the four circuits one at a time to make sure there is no overload. We tested the generator over a period of an hour with all four circuits on. It worked great and surged only slightly when one or more of the appliances cycled. The cost for parts and labor from the electrician was about $1000.00. I strongly recommend a professional installation. You can have serious problems if not installed correctly. It is comforting to know that our families food supply is protected and our communications equipment will function during a blackout. To accomplish all this the generator would only need to run 4 hours a day when the monitors on the appliances show a need to cycle. At a 50% load that is only 1 gallon of fuel per day. Communications equip. would be used in that 4 hour window. I found the build quality excellent. The only change I would make is to make the oil access door bigger and smooth the edges of the opening. It is difficult to get a big hand in and remove the oil fill/check plug. It started first pull and ran very smooth and quiet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellant value for the money! Top Quality! I bought this generator, as a back up for our travel trailer, for times when power wasn't available. Recent trip to the Keys in FL required 2 nights on generator, ran the entire trailer flawlessly, left it locked down in the back of my pick-up, while connected to the trailer, so quit, and ran all night on a tank, powered the refrigerator, heat lights TV ran the slide out, without issue. Easy to start, easy to operate, 1 adapter to the trailer 30Amp, and all was good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excited to go camping with this new baby! Our review is based on our trial run of this bad puppy. Will be taking it camping in May 2021 for a real trial run. Based on our initial test, this unit was very impressive! Very quiet - even better than the Honda 2200. Connected 1500 watt heater and a heat gun and the inverter had no problem handling the load. Awesome so far. Will make another review after our first camping trip. Stay tuned...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great product Used it while deer hunting last fall. Nice and quiet. Only problem was that the left side of the case was broken near the bottom. The box that the unit came in was in perfect shape when I opened it so I feel that the damage was done before it was placed in the box. Other than that I love the unit.
