    The sequence I'm used to:
    1. plug in MC to 14-50R
    2. voltage jumps to 239/240 and then bounces around in the range [239,243]
    3. amperage rises gradually from 0 to [39,40]
    4. mi/hr rises from 0 to 20 something
    5. "+mi" rises from 0 to 1 to 2 etc.

    Today:
    1. plug in MC to 14-50R
    2. "+mi" is at 24
    3. voltage jumps to 239/240 and then bounces around in the range [239,243]
    4. amperage rises gradually from 0 to [39,40]
    5. mi/hr rises from 0 to 20 something
    ...

    Anybody seen this before? Specifically, step 2 in the "Today" sequence.

    I have. It's generally the number of rated miles added during the *last* charge cycle.
