Yes Honda has built in hour meter if you only want to check for blinking lights.
I want to know how many hours are on the unit at a glance. For approx $60 I found 2 Hobbs meters. One issue I ran into was the Companion not having 12volt DC source and had to use an AC Hobbs meter for it. It was not easy to find. So here are a few pics and the part numbers for both meters.
DC hour meter is 85094 and the AC is 20035 found the AC meter after calling Honeywell direct, they were very helpful locating a distributor for the AC meter. Onlinecomponents.com | Franchised Distributor of Electronic Components
The DC meters can be found all over the internet. Online components will probably have both. I jumped the gun and initially ordered 2 DC meters, I did not think it through. Oh well not the first time. So now I have and extra meter for something else around here.
Wanted a clean install so i took my time and cut the holes during Sunday night football.
