VMS 616 CL

VMS 616 CL "Glass Dash"

50cycle and Silverleaf

What do you do when you want to plug your coach into shore power--but, say, you've landed your American-made coach in the UK?

How does this 50cycle and 230VAC pan out on North American-style 220VAC 60cycle?

The coach in question has this symptom: When plugged into shore power, the the transfer switch won't "pull in" (latch) and the error "Bad Frequency" is displayed on the Total Coach panel.

I've emailed this question out specifically to folks who have indicated they're in the UK. Yes--All Six Of Them! ;-)

You folks and anyone else with specific knowledge are welcome to join us to reveal your clever solutions. And, if things were sometimes by trial and, er...retrial--share those too!

Parking brake overrides video display in VMS 616

SITUATION: I've connected video to the video 1 input of the VMS 616 (software version 23CD05) in order to take advantage of the larger full screen of the Digital Dash video display. Unfortunately, I discovered when the parking brake is released the VMS 616 switches to the full screen gauges display. While there is a tiny video of the rear camera it is useful only for casual observation, not for detailed monitoring.
QUESTION: Is it possible to defeat the automatic switchback software action so that the rear camera (monitoring the towed vehicle) can be viewed full screen at will while driving simply by selecting the "video" button?

Fuel Raedings

I have a retro fit VMS 616 Glass Dash (I think). It was installed at Beaudry RV in Tucson on a 2001 Country Coach Affinity. Pretty neat system all in all. Last week I had Beaudry convert the old float system over to the Sonatrac Fuel sensor as the old float device wasn't working with the SilverLeaf. After having the new sender installed I am having a difficult time getting everything calibrated. For Example, the Technicial (Eric Olstrom) set the gallonage to 160 gallons. When I filled the fuel tank the Gauge read 107%. I ran the Coach 400 miles which should've uconsumed some 62 gallons give or take. The gauge is now reading 75%. I believe the reading should be more like 60% give or take. Is there some parameter I can change to make it track more accurately???
