Sounds like a clock spring in the steering wheel. We had that issue on our 08 Essex. Not a big repair but sure causes some crazy things to happen when it goes. Good luck.

Had same problem last month - lost all functions on steering wheel. Called Newmar, had me go out and double check all wire connections for smart wheel in the exterior compartment drivers side. It worked.

My Ram 2500 truck has a similar problem. ON/Off, Set and Accelerate work but when I press Coast and release it, it floors the go pedal.

If Dunner (RVM23) can't fix it, it ain't broke!

Smart wheel info.
Your brake pedal arm may not be closing brake switch contacts completely also.
