Questions and AnswersQuestions and Answers
Q: Hello, can you estimate how long it has been since the hydrogen generator has last been run. How many hours are on the machine (there is a hour meter on the back or rear side, near the top). When it was removed from service was it put into the long term storage configuration per the OEMs instructions for storage? (3/13/20 12:17 AM)

Once he responds I will provide those answers.Here is the answer I received from Matt Wade.Derek, Here is the answer to the questions: As of January 1, 2020, I was asked to put this system on govdeals.
