We are John and Debbie Carley in Florida. Deb owns a 2013 SLK 250 red that she has always wanted. She is not a happy computer person so I joined this forum at Christmas to ask for help in getting a backup camera installed in her car. One of the members made a recommendation for the gear and I had it installed at a custom shop recommended by MB here in Florida. It works great but it took two tries...the first time the installer did not quite know how the top up and down system worked. I went over to test it out before I delivered her car to her. (There is nothing like a full dress rehearsal right?) Sure enough, the tech demoed the camera and started to get out and I said let's try putting the top down and up...we did and there was a loud thump as the system broke the connecting wire on the camera as the top retracted. Luckily no damage to the mechanism and the camera now works great. My thanks to the member who told me the gear to get and who warned me about the pitfalls!

update:



New members Debbie and John Carley. Deb has a red 2013 SLK 250 and together we have an Itasca Navion 24V RV on a Mercedes Benz Sprinter 3500 chassis. Last spring we took both over to the Central Florida SLK get together in Plant City, FL. It was a great event and we look forward to the next one this fall. We live in Melbourne, Florida where we retired after spending almost 40 years either in or working for the US Army.

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.
