I have an Eberspacher D2 heater on my 2003 Topaz. I thought I should probably get it serviced but a camping pal has said that he was advised by a reputable source (a dealer) that it isn’t necessary. Mine is working fine and the service will cost £150 so I was wondering what others think.

Do I really have to service it?

I have looked after Ebo's for some years whilst working on the rivers and canals on all sorts of Boats . They always had to be repaired at some point due to fire chambers burning out and glow plug failure. These are not cheap to replace. Its a gamble only you can make , and if you choose not to have it done.....You can bet your wage slip..it will fail on you!
I personally would not hesitate and have it checked out . Otherwise...You may need a fair few candles if it fails to keep warm...Trust me!
Your £150 to service it ...gives you a warranty and piece of mind. Its well worth it.

Yes, get it done, ours failed after 10 years, boatyard said he could tell it had never been touched in that time.
