If it won't post mileage without a trip in it Just put in your address and Nome Alaska, it will then record all miles whether or not you are on course to Nome.

Ohhhh. What about an IPhone? Use MotionX GPS to track milage or any of a bunch of apps to do the same. Garmin's are obsolete.. LOL

Both of my Garmins records total miles whenever they're turned on. They only reset the miles if I select reset from the menu.
If you use a smart phone you would loose your milage reading if you trade it in for a newer model which seems to be what most people do every year or two.

Would HR not tell you the vendor and part number? If not insist they give you the info.

It was probably used elsewhere, pretty pricey for low volume RV use, whose chassis is under the coach? Should have a part number on it, often a simple Google search tells all.

good luck

Dean spoke to someone at Monaco National Parts. They looked up the part and said the vendor is "hostile". I'm guessing that has to do with Holiday Rambler changing hands for times and then Monaco filing bankruptcy in 2009 after the economy crashed in 2008. Anyway, he said that vendor will not communicate with them.

I think at this point I'm going to try some of the rebuilders suggested in this thread and go from there.

A GPS with total vehicle mileage and a trip meter would be a great idea, but I'm not aware of any such device right now.

Monaco has no reason to be hostile to you, they should give you the vendors name etc.. Once you know where it came from it get's easier to chase a replacement or a repair.

If your vehical is capable, Silverleaf VMSPC will recover all the previous milage data as well as keep a running total. And of course a whole lot of other good stuff. It basically replaces your dashboard.

Just a thought, check all of the connections on back ofthe gauge unit. Could be just a bad connection due to condensation or corrosion of terminals. I have found this on different mh's and solved a few issues.

I initially quoted the wrong post.

As I understand it, the old mechanical Cummins diesels like the 325hp C8.3 in my friend's Imperial do not have an ECM, so there is nothing to hook to for determining engine hours. If there had been, I've been told most diesel shops can calculate mileage from engine hours.

None the less, the Silverleaf equipment would be a "must have" if we had the capability to use it. On later model coaches, it would be invaluable.

I'm wondering if that isn't the issue with a LOT of things on this MH. I'm thinking it sat unused a lot of the time, and corroded connections is always a problem with vehicles that aren't used often. As soon as we get it back from Kenworth, I have other tasks behind the dash to attend to (like getting the stereo operational again), so I'll take a look while I'm back there. I just hope there is some way to recover the lost mileage data, but I'm not very hopeful on that front.

Monaco was actually VERY friendly and helpful. They had no problem looking up the odometer and vendor who made it. What they were saying was, that vendor will not communicate with them. I don't think Dean (my friend) pursued asking who the vendor was. However, as helpful as they were to him (they even sent him a copy of the original window sticker at no charge), I would think if he asked, they would tell him who the vendor was and how to contact them. They were simply warning him that the vendor was not pleasant to work with.

You make a good point though. Any information about the odometer would very helpful in seeking out repairs, even if the repairs end up being performed by another vendor.
