Update:

Installed SilverLeaf VMCpc software and hardware, configured and plugged into the ECM diagnostic data port. Had not started the coach since the last trip when the Engine Maintenance Light first came on. Low and behold, fired her up and ... you guested it, no light. After reading the software manual more closely, SilverLeaf does not have the ability to read code history that may be stored in the ECM. It will record and store new codes as long as SilverLeaf is connected and software running when the engine is on.

Drove a couple hundred miles last weekend with no codes. So have to assume a minor issue cause the light to come on. However, now I have the ability to see codes as the happen and maintain a history.

In the not too distant future, will write and post a first impressions review of the SilverLeaf VMCpc.

Installed VMSpc in September of 2009 and have used it ever since, I would not be without it!
