    I got the speed limiter done at "intercounty mercedes at Toddington, Bedfordshire, 5 minutes from junction 12 of M 1

    Apparently when they first went in to the ECU on the speed limiter side it was already set at 123 kph, I assured them it was limited to 52 mph ! and the service manager got involved, saying it could be limited in another part of the ECU, he eventually found it in another section.

    The ECU upgrade was done by Martin Lane of Quantum,

    Will you be at Adventure Overland this year.?

    I'd love to go, but unfortunately I'll be away on business over that weekend. I've been saying it for years...but perhaps next year! At least the van will be complete for the next one. Thanks for the information, I'll give them a buzz once I have the van re-registered. If you don't mind me asking, how much did they charge you for the privilege?

    I think it was about 80 for Mercedes and something like 320 for Quantum

    My ALDE heating boiler kept throwing up a fault. it would say "overheat red fail"

    Bearing in mind that I bought it second hand on ebay, I thought I would be on my own ! regarding support from the manufacturer.

    I contacted them, and they suggested a couple of things that may help, but it did not fix it!
    I took the truck along to them and they gave it the once over, and made a couple of adjustments, and said the installation is fine and it did`nt throw up any faults.

    Well, in use the fault happened again! so I spoke to them again, saying that I had read that the circuit boards can fail. They said remove it and post it to them so they can test it. they said it had been on 24 hour test and had no faults, but they would send me a new latest version free of charge! This still did not fix the random fault, so I recontacted them, and they sent me a new set of heat sensors again FOC! so far all is good.

    What a helpful bunch of guys. ALDE UK
