Kind Rgds, MIKE

Thank you Mike, that is enormously helpful. Just on the dashboard subject. The same lorry had a new dash approximately 3-4 years ago as it just packed up one day, so it is rather galling to have to fork out (£1000) for another one now! It seems odd that the dashboard should blow twice in 4 years, is this a general problem with computerised dashes or rather symptomatic of an undiagnosed underlying electrical fault? The latest fault was caused by a 'power surge' according to the mechanic. As mentioned previously the lorry has been regularly serviced by Merc dealerships with good reputations, plugged in to all the relevant diagnostic machines etc.
