Hey Tony,
We were working doing fly down, fly back trips. My mains are still running great with over 41,000 hours. They only burn oil after 400 hrs without an oil change so I try to change it around three hundred hrs. The Onan is still running great.!! I don’t even have any Idea how many hrs it has. I would guess around 60,000 at least and maybe much more...................
