Cruise control

will the cruise turn on if the coach is not moving and is just idling? Or does the coach have to be moving before the cruise can be turned on?

thanks

The cruise can be turned on when the coach is not moving. If you turn it on, and press the resume button, it will turn on the fast idle, at 1000 rpm's.

I have recently learned that if you turn off the cruise control, and later turn it back on, you can simply hit the resume button, and it will go back to the previous cruise speed. You don't need to reset it once you get to your desired speed.

Jim A, my cruise has not been working at all and i just replaced the smart wheel controller and have not driven it to see if the cruise will work or not. I haven't notice a icon coming on when i turn on the cruise? Not sure if there's an icon that comes on when you turn on the cruise or not.

And also, if you're moving and have the cruise set, if you want to speed up 1 mph, press the resume button once, if you want to slow down 1 mph, press the set button once. Press either button additional times to speed up or slow down additional mph.

Dennis, if you have silverleaf, you get a green icon of a circle with a "c" inside. When you press set, the circle fills in. It should also say "cruise" in the odometer window.

Janet and Todd, yes i have the silveleaf and just did the cruise and there is no icon that comes on the silverleaf or the dash so i assume the cruise is still not working and also tried the fast idle and it will not work either.

My older model [03] CC was not working very well so I took the CC cluster buttons on the smart wheel apart and cleaned/reset the multi-plug connection--problems when away. There are 4 longish screws that hold the button cluster from behind/underneath the steering wheel.

The '04 has a yellow idiot light (part of a cluster of lights) on the dash that comes on when the cruise control is turned on. There is nothing that shows if it is set or not.

I have the Silverleaf VMSpc software running on a Windows tablet, and it can be set up to show if the cruise is on, and whether it is set or not. Even what the set speed is.
