The engine monitoring and diagnostic capabilities in most diesel pusher RV’s is pretty much non existent. So when a check engine light appears on your dash you have no idea as to what is going wrong and how severe it maybe. Now you can keep close tabs on your RV’s engine with your laptop and the Silverleaf VMSpc software. The VMSpc is an intelligent data translator that links your USB port to the engine diagnostic connector in your motorhome. Together with this special software you can read performance and diagnostic information right on your laptop computer. You get complete diagnostics, trip information, and a great graphing capabilities that lets you display up to five parameters at once. You can even store the engine data to a file and load it into a spreadsheet.
But wait! That’s not all! The SilverLeaf VMSpc let’s you program audible alarms based on any engine parameter. For example, when your road speed reaches a certain point. Have it played once, once a minute, or continuously. You can even create a “Tank Minder”, which provides a miles-to-empty calculation based on your fuel tank size and engines fuel economy. VMSpc also lets you enter correction factors to compensate for a poorly calibrated engine. You can even program gauges to read in metric, if you so desire.Professional automotive engineers use VMSpc to test their vehicle designs.
