Help with digital hour meter (in dash) for generator
I just bought my first motorhome, a 1995 Fleetwood American Dream.
I've been tinkering around with all the odds and ends that need done and the one that is making me absolutely crazy is that the digital hour meter doesn't work. It is in the dash as part of the additional cluster to the left. The wire to it is producing about 1 volt with the generator running.... and I have no idea where it runs to (I've tried my best but it is just a generic black wire after the first 6 inches or so). Can I just add a standalone guage? If so, how do I know how many hours are on the existing meter? Is there a place to attach it to the generator? I am clueless on this one. The generator, itself, isn't the easiest to get to.... tucked up in the front and the lower front panel isn't easily removable.
Thanks for any help.... and this is my first post so let me say "hi" to everyone!
