I think you did a great job considering you were dealing with a dash that was never supposed to have a glass dash. I canít wait to sit behind ours when we pick up our KGDB on Nov 17.

Thanks Scott. That explains why a quote directly from SilverLeaf, having them do the install, is something close to $10K. They would need to build up the same type of panel, so very custom.

Am I correct to assume the Glass Dash simply plugs into the existing wiring harness without any modifications?

Not that straight forward Phil. There is a harness that connects to the J1939 diagnostics port which provides the majority of the data but there are several functions that you need to find. It really helps to have an understanding of the J1939 and RV-C communications protocols to do this installation. It gets a bit challenging when you get the system fired up and you have warning lights and things that don't work as advertised, that's when the real fun starts.

Sounds like not letting a television doctor operate on a real patient. I saw the back of my dash during build and again during my HWH Active Air install. This isn't something for the faint of heart. Also on my 2017 DS Spartan, Spartan is moving to a high speed J1939 bus. So my setup had two J1939 ports. HWH needs transmission data and the Alison 3000 wasn't yet supporting High Speed. Led to some time and head scratching by the engineers at HWH. All well in the end.

Is this an option on a new build, or strictly aftermarket?
Looks like what I have been hoping for.
