auto slipping/changing slow

when I engage D (from say park) it takes 2-3 seconds to engage. It does the same from D to R.

Also, for example when I have it in first gear, and accelerate, it slips for a bit and then takes up...the oil is cherry red and there is enought oil in the box (according to the dipstick) does that sound like the bands are slipping and it simply needs a service or does it sound like something worse?

Your EB should have a BTR85 Tranz, I would replace the S5 Solinoid as the first signs of failure is when they delay into reverse.
If it is a 3 spd you may find the seals are old.
