Am going away for the first time this weekend just need a bit of advice regarding driving. The overdrive putton has been depressed in since i bought it, do i keep it in or let it out? also a small red button near the gear lever wht is it? as you can guess i have not been given the owners manual yet.
Cheers
Stu

O/D most the time. Unless you are towing you would probably only want to turn O/D off for engine braking on steep declines, it is just like dropping down a gear. In normal use it is like an economy top gear.

Red button releases the gear shift without the ign key or brake pedal being used, mainly for use when pushing the bus about with no battery power i.e. in the garage. You will use it at some stage but otherwise forget about it.

Have a look at www.teoc.ws meets section, you or indeed anybody are welcome to attend most of the meets (some are TEOC only, some needed to be prebooked), and join a group of like minded vehicle owners and maybe a pint or two at beer o'clock.
