LHM is a reduced power mode when the Van detects something wrong. The van does it to protect itself from being damaged but it is kind of cool in that it lets you get to where you need to be as opposed to just "breaking down" and needing to be towed. It was showing a 150200 code.

I took it to the dealer this morning and it turns out a $22 silicon coupler between the turbo and the airbox had started to leak. Of course with Mercedes diagnostics and shop rates it is now a $205 coupler

I have a Zurich platinum extended warranty on the thing so it was $100 out of pocket for the deductible.



The good news is it is fixed because I'm out of here on Saturday for 4 days of mountain biking in Crested Butte

I guess the blessing is this happened on the way home yesterday and not half way up a mountain pass this weekend!

This weekend we are hoping to camp at Oh Be Joyful again.

Here's a photo from our camping trip there earlier this summer:
Nice scenery,I am going to get out to Colorado someday and leave the flats of Florida for a while.My step daughter is living in San francisco and she goes to a place in Colorado called Steamboat Springs with her fiance.

I talked about doing a Partridge Family paint job on my EuroVan. It would have been much funnier if my kids had understood the joke, without having to Google search for photos...

True, but does that mean you'd like an '80s-style La Vie Claire team color scheme?
