How many of you, add coach mileage to toad mileage?

to calculate maintenance intervals on toad ?


I know our jeep does not count miles while being towed, so I have to rotate tires, do wheel bearings, etc... as if the jeep had as many miles as the coach... PLUS the jeep's miles.

I attempt to add it in. Only for tire rotation. Sealed bearing on our truck, so don't worry about them.

There's nothing spinning but the wheels, so we don't take it into consideration.

To make it easy on my feeble mind, I just rotate tires at every oil change (5000 mile interval) on the toad. I don't worry about any other mileage related maintenance on the toad due to miles from towing other than checking tow bar and related equip before trips.

Only as it pertains to tires & brakes since those are the only parts that have wear n tear being towed.

I ignore the towed mileage and just rotate tires and check the brakes at every oil change which is approximately every 10,000 miles per MM in the Honda CRV.

Only reason I posted it, is that I towed the jeep so much, and changed the oil only when it told me to, that the tires cupped from lack of rotation...

All I ever do is rotate the tires. Brakes get visually inspected when getting oil service.

Doesn’t add mileage while towing just do the normal maintenance interval every 5k.

I've read this six times JonBoy and don't understand what changing the oil has to do with cupped tires or how your tires didn't rotate when you are towing your jeep?

On edit: I get it, you mean rotating the tires from position to position -- not rotating as in spinning.

I don't even rotate my tires anymore. It cost more to rotate them than I gain in additional mileage and I'm to lazy to do it myself. I haven't noticed any cupping, that's usually a sign of a suspension problem.
