Ok, who is up for a challenge. See if Sprinter owners can find out what exactly CEL P14F200 and P11C300 mean. And, if you do, please post a link to explain them. I gave up. Like I said, close to the vest these guys are.

I can.

One, or both of those, are the code(s) for which MB has issued the bulletin I mentioned earlier today. I first got both of those codes in Arizona and MB of Chandler replaced the Air Mass Meter. Then I got the same codes again and, at the advice of MB of Eugene, Oregon had my Solera flatbed hauled to their shop (warranty paid for the haul. Tow truck driver did $1,800 damage to the RV). Shop manager then called and said they just received a bulletin about these codes and it had something to do with an electronic part before the Air Mass Meter. Took them a few days to get one ordered.

The paper work is in my RV, which I will get back next week. I'll post what information.

Hats off. Can you let us in on your skills. Looks like a copy of a service invoice.

I just did a Google search for the code and it did come up with a complete service invoice with customers name and all. Scary!!

Found a little info. on P11C300. Seems that it might be related to to a problem with injector rail, but have been unable to confirm.

There is a subscription site that has all the code meanings, but I have not subscribed.

What did the tow truck driver do that caused the damage?

Hit a tree limb, broke the antenna and AC cowling and damaged the the AC, which has to be replaced. The charge to the tow company includes a water pressure test of the roof to insure no leaks.

This is the second time I've had to have an RV towed. The first time was my 40' diesel pusher. That was damaged in transit as well.

Very frustrating.

Sorry to hear about the damage. I completely agree it's totally frustrating. I was worried about what damage I would find on ours after a month at the dealer waiting on warranty parts that still haven't arrived. The dealer suggested I contact FR to get them to send out the parts faster. I picked up our rig and will bring it back when the parts arrive. Anytime someone else is in control of your property its nerve racking.

Engine light and loss of power

We have a 2012 Solera on MB sprinter chassis...on our trip to Ca the engine light came on and loss of power to @20 mph. Restarted engine and it then drove fine for about 150 miles, but light stayed on. Went to MB dealer and they updated the computer info and light went out. Drove for another 1k miles then light came back on and lost power to 20mph..stopped and started several times and would pick up speed for a couple of minutes then down to 20mph again...made it to a MB dealer in Birmingham...they replaced the fuel filter...has been running great all day on the way back to Fl...but after seeing all the comments in this and other forums, I'm not sure I trust it to stay fixed...anyone have any similar happenings and cures...sorry for the long post but we are completely at a loss! Thanks for any help!

What codes did the MB dealer in Birmigham find? I have heard that a faulty or old fuel filter can cause the RV to go into limp mode.
