While flat towing does the odometer register the miles

Does flat towing a wrangler register the miles being towed? If the owner turned the key and activated the gauges?

No, not if the t-case has been shifted to Neutral while towing as is required.

Gone on vacation until August 25.
When you have a choice, buy American made.

Just say the key was turned to the "on" selection would it do it? I am looking at a 97 with alot of miles on it and the owner stated he towed it behind his motor home. I thought no until he stated that he turned the key to the on selection where the radio worked. He said the guy at motor home dealer told him to do it that way and always did it that way. Got 192k on it. But looks to be in good shape.
