Does a fully automatic coupling require more servicing and maintenance than a regular coupling?

Servicing and maintenance of VBG’s MFC Automatic Coupling are somewhat different than for standard yoke couplings. Because MFC functionality is controlled by electronics, and electricity, air and hydraulics are automatically coupled, you need to be more thorough when removing dirt from connectors and sensors.  The MFC Driver’s Manual contains detailed information about the recommended servicing and maintenance procedures. These are, however, almost negligible in comparison to the increased convenience and time savings provided by an automatic coupling.
