    I Don't get good results witn the singel hose mobil ones becaue it suck the air from the cap that it blows out over the hose. So it suck all the time hot outside air in the cap.

    I think for the price and name recognition its a good gen. I did a LOT of research and settled on the champion, its quiet sips fuel and didn't break the bank when purchasing it.

    After long thinking and looking around I bought used Carrier Comfort Pro APU. It has 2500 hours and the plate shows 2008 MY. The frame was rusted. I am in cleaning, painting process now. The engine is fine but I did not like the condition of starter and alternator. So after cleaning, painting, maintaining (new service filters, new starter, alternator, hoses and clamps) it will cost on me $2500. All labor done by myself installation included.
