Incorrect Odometer

The odometer on my 2003 36FDDS is advancing far more than the actual miles travelled. Instead of advancing one tenth of a mile for each one tenth travelled, it will advance 2, 3,4,5,6 tenths at random, in one shot. At first I thought I was getting phenomenal fuel mileage, but alas, after doing a speedometer check, that wasn't the case.

The speedometer and odometer are seperate instruments and the odometer has a digital readout on a small LCD.

Has anyone run into this problem and do you have any suggestions about how to get this problem fixed? The miles are piling up fast, and being that I bought this coach new in 2006, I'm losing far more value than I should.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I'd recommend getting it to a certified shop....
They might be able to repair or replace it, and give you a certificate for your new unit, which you can use when you resell. It won't make up for those extra miles that you gained already, but .......still better than nothing.

Happy Camping

I would guess your LCD has changed to Kilometers and is not in Miles.
Looking at the LCD with a good lighting (I use a flashlight) you will find on the left of the display in red the letters------


The LCD will be pointing to either the M or K. If it points to the K you are in Kilometer mode. To change modes Hold the button down while displaying the total (Miles or Kilometer) and it will toggle.
