The Champion Power Equipment 5500-Watt Wireless Remote Start Inverter Generator is ultra-quiet and ideal for camping, tailgating, powering items around the RV or providing backup for your essentials.

Champion has convenience covered. Starting and stopping your generator from up to 80 feet away with the wireless remote key fob is a snap. No matter what you’re powering, you’ll enjoy the on/off push-button power with electric start, battery included.

Refueling in the dark is a cinch thanks to Fuel Fill Assist LED, a flip-up LED to illuminate the gasoline fill area.

Featuring Cold Start Technology and Extended Run Time, the reliable 224cc Champion engine produces 5500 starting watts and 4000 running watts, and runs for 20 hours at 25% load when the 3.7-gallon fuel tank is full.

With a 0.6-quart oil capacity (included 10W-30) and a low oil shut-off sensor, this inverter operates at an ultra-quiet 61 dBA from 23 feet, which is about as loud as normal speech.

The no tool access panel and oil drain tube allow for easy maintenance.

Confidently connect your sensitive electronics since this inverter produces Clean Power (less than 3% THD).

Our Quick Touch Panel offers fast access to your controls, plus the built-in LED lights make it easy to use in the dark. The Intelligauge with Power Meter monitors voltage, frequency and operating hours with ease, while Economy Mode monitors power consumption in real time to reduce engine wear. As the electrical load is reduced, the inverter reduces engine speed, providing quieter operation, extended engine life and higher fuel economy.

The covered outlets in this RV Ready inverter include a 120V 30A RV (TT-30R), four 120V 20A household outlets (5-20R), and a 12V automotive-style outlet.

The optional Parallel Kit (sold separately), with included standard 50-amp RV outlet, allows you to increase output by connecting up to two 5500-watt or similar inverters. The never flat tires and new telescoping handle make transport a cinch.
