    the dashboard,for who is intressed the complete lay out

    at the image,al the ''stars'' are indicator lamps,but many not in use for my truck.

    1 = the speed meter in km.
    a = the day kmcounter
    b = the total km counter

    2 = the tank meter(s)
    a = the bleu tank and blocks symbolls are for the ad bleu tank,the needle here is not for the ad bleu,by less and less ad level every time 1 bleu block lamp go out,just an indicator tank in 100 liters
    i can see how much in the tank is by scrolling through the computer where the amount of liters at that moment is
    b = white is for diesel including the needle and tank in this case both tnaks are almost full,diesel i have 570 liters with me.

    3 = the computer screen,there are 10 pages to scroll through with switches on the steering wheel
    4 = in this case only the gearbox info
    n= neutral ,but changes to the gear what is shifted e = economic run goes out when i switch the power mode (never useed it) a= automatic or when i switch over to manual,it showes a m
    but in this part light also some indicator lamp up like 5

    5 = i had lifted the second axle up,indicator lights up,but there can be light up differnd signs

    6 = some setting swittches 000,0 to reset the day counter + and - are for volume settings and others the cornerd arroew is a enter button.

    7 = rpm counter
    green is the best engine torque and most feul saving aeria
    yellow more rpm's but less torque,but the best aeria for braking on the engine
    red to much rpm very bad for feul saving
    a = time
    b= degrees

    8 = air storage in bar
    working pressure is 10 bar in 2 brake circuit supply pressure,here is circuit lightted up,meaning this is the lowest circuit pressure

    what i forget to mention ,the 2 red drawn arrows with the block behind them for turning right or left.
    the Arrow is for the truck,the blocks are for the trailer.
    if i want to make a turn and the Arrow or the block won't light up,it means a light bulb is broken.
    also in the computer screen a sign says which bulb is broken down,but only on the truck.
    but any light bulb thats gets broken, the computer will tell me,as long it's from the truck

    i still think that heavy duty engines still need there oil.
    even with an add in the oil or even only the additives ,that you have seen on tv.
    i don't buy it

    No problem, the importance of oil for a proper running vehicle is totally overestimated...

    don't feel bad about the switches,even i don't know were they for,before i explane them here,i have read the manual too.
    never use many switches.

    I hope you will not send test sheets before Christmas to check if we learned al correctly! Time is too short. Give us time until February. I am just familiar with the switch for the main lights, because this design did not change for at least 30 years now.

    with to many switches and sensors though.

    lets handle a few switches.
    on my left door,a panel for everything on/in the door

    1 = a little light that indicates thar the mirror heating is on.
    2 = the switch for the mirror heating on/off
    3 = a 4 way switch for up,down,left right turning of the mirror,just push on 1 of the 4 dots
    4 = left mirror
    5 = right mirror,if pressed on 1 of those then you can command the mirror with number 3, heating goes for both mirrors.
    6 = locks a= lock doors,b is unlock door(s) below 6 (just as at 1) is a light indicater flashes 24/7 locked or unlocked
    7 = left window a = up,b = down
    8 = right window a = up,b = down

    left of the steering wheel

    1 = the rotary light switch
    a = off
    b = city lights
    c = driving lights (dipped-beam headlamp?????)
    d = front fog light (pull the light switch 1 step up)
    e = rear fog light (not visable) (pull the light switch 1 step further up)(for d and e ,only works when switch is on b or c)

    2 = working lights at catwalk

    3 = stick at steeringwheel
    a = horn
    b = Rotary switch for windshieldwiper
    b1= push to the right wishwasher
    b2 = in off position
    b3 = interval working position
    b4 = normal working position
    b5 = fast working position

    bleu arrows like any direction switch up goes right turn,down goes left turn

    4 = door speaker

    5 = headlights command
    a = sign flash
    b = contineu big lights (means al i got,means 10 lights)
    c = driving lights (dipped-beam headlamp?????)

    the alarmclocks don't get the chance to ring for a second time.
    never let snooze them

    Number 9 - the alarm clock.... does it have a built in buzzer?

    I mean, when you snooze it more than three times, the whole truck starts shaking?

    you see.i Always look good,even with a mug in front of me.

    above the mirror there is a handle and a storage place,just use it for little stuff like little pots with screws etcetc,an dalso the wires for the tv are in there.
    the verticle strip is the holder for the tv scren

    the carpet,or of what Dane thought,a painting of the tigers is placed on the underside of the second bed,the topbed.
    unlock it and the bed will hang on the straps
