Odometer/Trip Meter

I recently purchased a 2000 National RV Tradewinds 7370 on a
frieghtliner Chassis. The odemeter reading seems to be in Kilometers, not in Miles.

Is this something that can be changed? Has anyone ever heard of this?

Get an Owners Manual for your coach. On my Tradewinds, the odometer can be in miles or kilometers....it's just the push of the button, your choice......Rook

Odometer and Trip Odometer
The MC is equipped with a speedometer and a tachometer. A digital odometer display is located in the speedometer
and a digital trip odometer display is located in the tachometer.
Both odometers can display either English or metric values (miles or kilometers). A trip reset switch is located
on the lower right corner of the dash panel. If the switch is depressed for more than 4 seconds, both displays
will cycle between English and metric. At the left sides of the odometer displays, a triangle will point to either an
"m" or a "k," depending on which scale is selected.
To reset the trip odometer, depress the switch for less than 4 seconds. The odometer resets to either 0 miles or
0 kilometers. The display indicates in 1/10 (mile or kilometer) increments, depending on the scale selected.
The Freightliner SB 54-12 describes how the instruments operate and contains a lot of troubleshooting info. You can download SB 54-12 from the link below:

Pushing the trip odometer reset switch for several seconds will change the kilometers to miles, and visaversa. At least it does on our Freightliner chassis, and several of our friends Freightliner chassis.

Glad you got the problem fixed. But converting could be interesting.:

Police Officer: Sir, do you know how fast you were going??

You: Uh, hold on a second while I get my calculator out.
