Hi guys -

I am looking at a used luxury motor home with a generator that has a little over 3,300 hrs - is that excessive?

According to this post you should be able to safely get 10,000 hours out of a properly maintained generator. http://www.luxurycoachlifestyle.com/forum/general-technical-discussion/3565-how-many-hours-can-we-expect-our-generator.html

No that isn't excessive at all. They are made to run and like Jon posted in thread above if properly maintained you should be good for a while.

They can go 10,000+ as Jon shared so I wouldn't worry about it, especially if it has been properly maintained.

Proper maintenance is key to the life of a generator lasting for thousands and thousands of hours.
