Silverleaf Monitor

HI, Just bought a 2008 34 feds alpine. Sorry to say no engine monitor or silver leaf electronics. Do all newer alpines have a wiring loom to accept the electronic upgrade? If not how hard is it to install one and make all the functions work. I had one on our last 2006 36fdds alpine. It worked great. Thanks mike

Welcome to the ownership of an Alpine. Hope to meet you at one of the Alpine Coach Rallies.

To install a Silverleaf it should be a simple plug in. You also need to tap into a switched power source and into the lights so it can change the screen at night. Contact Silverleaf Electronics and they can tell you what you will need to install.

I put the CL400 in my 2005 Alpine. The wiring was easy, just plug the data cable in and supply ignition power. installing the monitor in the dash was a bit of a challenge. Back in 04 it cost me about $6000 including the smart tire module.

Guess it depends on what you mean by: "make it ALL the functions work?" The VMSpc version of SL gives you all the enigine and tranny info--just plug the SL serial port into the chassis monitoring plug under the dash, in front of the passenger seat [9-pin adaptor]. Suppose its a bit bothersome to have to run the PC instead of a dedicated SL monitor, but since the spousal unit is already running GPS and mapping software, splitting/sharing the screen is no biggie...If you are wanting the minute to minute up-date of you holding tank status--that is larger challenge.....
