I recently purchased an RV12 with a D180, AP74 and a Garmin 495 on the bus.  The D180 is operating flawlessly, as far as I can tell, with Ver 5.3.0  I am reluctant to upgrade for fear that I will be opening a can of worms for features or protections I do not need. 

Any advice or opinions would be appreciated.

Our "generic" recommendation is to run the latest software. The biggest things that have changed since your version are some of the autopilot algorithms. That said, if none of those improvements are areas that you're noticing could use improvement, it won't hurt to keep what you have. The full list of improvements since 5.3 can be found here.
