I last looked at the total mileage on the coach sometime last year or the year before.
At the time it was 36,8084 miles.
Well today looked and it is over 47,00 miles.It is Oct 7, 2019 unless I'm in a time warp. Trump was President when I went to bed last night or was he.
The trip to Michigan and back was appx 1400 miles in June. The trip out here was a bit over 1,800 miles.
This year we moved the coach about 100 miles total from one storage area to another and then this trip.
I have the mileage, back home recorded on a n Insurance form from the last time I looked.
My shoes are the same ones I wore last month and my clothes are not worn out.
I there a worm hole on I40 somewhere, or has Arizona half way round the world??
Where did appx 11,000 miles go. You don't suppose we picked up the wrong coach..not.
Maybe I better check the serial number in the am. [emoticon]

Maybe too much Wobble Water was consumed before the odometer was read!!

what make and model of coach? A bad ground wire is a known problem on Monaco coaches of a certain era. We had ours change several years ago and fixed it by running a new ground wire. We log our mileage every day so knew what it should be. We never bothered to have the odometer reset since we also have an Aladdin Junior system that also records the mileage.

Sounds like your odometer got reset to Kilometers instead of Miles.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

Are you sure it is still reading MILES

47000 miles is about 75000 And then some KM


Home is where I park it.

Ya, not a KM vs Miles. Good thought, but the math doesn't work.

47,000 KM times .6 miles/KM= 28,200 miles

If you never use the trip meter, perhaps it was actually on trip meter you were originally reading, and it got reset to show actual miles on the rv. I seldom ever use the one on my truck, but occasionally go to read the odometer, and its on the trip meter. If no one has reset the trip meter in years, it can read pretty high mileage.
