Onan 8KW Hour Meter

I am bringing home a 2002 Country Coach Magna Journey 37' and can not find the hour meter for the Onan 8KW gen set. I found Gen Hours in the silver leaf display but it displays 6hrs. and does not change when running the gen set. Is there another hour meter on this coach?

Thank you.

there should be on on the generator and also one inside. Ours (also a 2002 36' Intrigue) is above the door on the control panel.

The coach got here today and I have found the hours displayed in the SilverLeaf, but I have a hard time believing a 14 year old coach only has 8 hours on the gen set. It is logging hours and displaying correctly. Does Onan have an internal ECM that cummings can read with a scan tool?

Look at the generator and you should see an hour meter near the start/stop switch on the genset. The generator hours reading on the generator and what is displayed on my Silverleaf are not in total agreement.

Low hours on a generator is certainly possible if the prior owner/s always stayed in full hook up RV sites and never/rarely had need to use the generator. However, they do need to be routinely exercised so I would service it well and run it to make sure it works properly.

My '03 Magna does not have a gen hour meter inside. Only one on the generator. The Silverleaf does not display gen hours, at least not accurately.

Same with ours. Our SilverLeaf might display hours but I only go by the one on the gen set.

My 2002 Magna does not have an hour meter on the generator either. The Silver Leaf will display the hours but only as saved in the Silver Leaf which app reset will lose the hours. I'm not sure but I believe Onan can read the hours directly from the generator memory.

I have determined that mine does not have one either. The Onan did have a knock out plate by the start stop switch the size of a regular hour meter. There are even two wires terminated to install the meter below:
