VMS 200 EL upgrade question to current Silverleaf VMS 440

Appologies if this question already has an active thread, however I recently purchased a 2003 Country Coach Lexa which has the VMS 200 EL installed. Is it possible to simply replace the 200 with an upgraded VMS, such as the 440? What does it entail?

Thank you,

re: upgrading from a VMS200

Hello David

The nearest thing we have for mounting in-dash is in fact the VMS440. Its $1995 plus shipping. For the most part--as your unit is currently working--it means this:
1. Removing/ unplugging your unit (some screws hold it from a couple brackets)
2. Enlarging the hole to 7.8" wide x 4.862" tall. Exactly--no smaller and, at most, 1/16" over those specs. Yes, a very tight fit.
3. Mount the new unit, plug in existing connector. We will have adjusted its settings (ahead of time) for your specific engine, engine bus and to turn off features you're not using (yet.) These are user settable as well and can be changed by you at any time.

Mostly plug and play but for the larger cut out. A bracket or two may be needed for support as its a heavy unit yet with no special allowances for the real estate on the backside.

Sorry for the delayed response, Art. A few questions. What are the primary enhancements of the 440 over the 200? Also, is the VMS 440CL the same as the VMS 440?

Thank you

David, If you do/did replace the 200 display and it is still working, I'd be interested in buying it. henrymarlow@yahoo.com
