Do you keep a log of every trip you take so that you can verify the odometer? No, you trust in the odometer as installed my the manufacturer. As long as you haven't tampered with the odometer, the manufacturer-installed odometer is the authoritative mileage on your vehicle. Nobody will fault you for stating this as the mileage.

I'm not saying that this is standard equipment, or even an option for a travel trailer. The point is that some styles of trailers actually do have an odometer, and the person at the DMV may be confused as to which style of trailer they were working with.

I spent too much time with the California DMV trying to get an answer. Finally my local office referred me to Sacramento where I spoke with a nice lady that understood the issue.

California considers miles as actual "driven" miles that accrue on the odometer, and / or miles accrued on the odometer while being towed. Driven means the auto is under its own power being driven by a person.

Towed miles that do not accrue on the odometer are not reportable. So for example shifting the transfer case into neutral is fine. Following that manufacturers instructions for towing, such as pulling a fuse is fine. The key is following the manufactures instructions for towing.

However, any tampering with the odometer such as disconnecting fuses, wires, or cables for the sole purpose of preventing miles from accumulating is considered tampering and is illegal.

Try and live up to your dogs opinion of you.
