Generator hours

I am confused as to how many hours my generator has run. I have a 2016 Quantum PD 31. I bought it last August with 5800 miles. Since then I have run it about 3 hours. Tia.Click image for larger version

Exactly my confusion. The best I can come up with is to divide that number but 1/10 which would be 753 hours I think.

I would say even 753 hours would be high....Ours is a 2016 Vegas with about 9000 miles.. We have 220 hours on our generator....I run it all the time so I can run the A/C to cool down the back when traveling to destination....

I Googled ENM hour meter and the description states it reads hours and tenth of an hour. Not resettable. I will call the manufacturer next week. I am pretty sure it is defective. Thank you all for responding.

Is that the same as 50,000 days?

I agree on the 7 thousand hours, the question is did the first owner live in it.
The hours add up to like 24/7 for like 300 + days and around 500 days at 15 hours per day. Very doable you just need to know what the old owner did with it.

Generator hours

It will be interesting to find out differently but I bet on 7000 hours. The more important question is how is it running? Everyone seems to freak out about hours on generators but I was told a couple times these can run 10,000 hours. If it is still running well it should give us all a lot of comfort

I have confirmed that the hour counter continues to go up when plugged in to shore power. It appears to wired incorrectly. I am bringing it to an authorized Cummins Onan service center within the month. Thank you all for your help.
