A well maintained 12 kw diesel gen at 1800 rpms may only last 10,000 hours if ran at no load. It "may" run 20,000 hours at continuous half load. Or the same at full load. No one here is gonna wear one out in any case. Lack of use kills most of them.

Yes, the reverse cycle takes heat from the raw water.
