    On Monday last I popped out to the MoHo to find a specialist tool and whilst out there I though I should run the engine as I hadn't run it since Christmas.

    Imagine my surprise when I read on the Trip Computer "'A' service overdue by 43 days."

    I checked the mileage and sure enough 3,780 since new last May. The last time I looked it said so many thousand miles before next service then all of a sudden I'm overdue.

    I phoned Mercedes and they asked a few questions like how long has it been stationary and that this reduces the service interval almost as fast as High Mileage.

    So three days later I took 'Ruby' for her 1st service and whilst it was there I had a free top up of Pig's Piss and a complimentary high pressure wash down this afternoon............

    I'll do the roof tomorrow.

    Our motor home 2008 Mercedes 3ltr has a service schedule of 24months/ 24000 Miles. Have they changed the service intervals? Ours is due a service this month shows on the display as a 2 spanner job service!

    They have jumped on the bandwagon with everyone else now, allowing the computer to advise you when you need your service. I had an "A" or single spanner service yesterday and now the comp' is telling me next service due at 37,780 miles. "B" service or two spanners.

    Well that would be 10 years with me driving it so I expect the computer will bring in a time element to it. Lovely people to do business with though, Mercedes Commercial in Salisbury, nothing too much trouble.
