Smart Wheel

Was leaving the house for my farm in the MH, fast idle was engaged, and when I stepped on the brake the fast idle quit (normal operation), I then realized I need to do some more stuff so turned cruise back on and then hit the res button, nothing. I have the Silverleaf display and normally I get a little C with a circle around it showing cruise is ON. It now does not display, cruise does not work, wipers only cycle once per button push, don't think the headlight buttons work, and have not checked the horn. I have recycled the master switches, no change.

I pulled the panel off the passenger side front, the fuse for the smart wheel controller is fine, no wires are loose so at a loss.

I have not gone through the list of test in the service manual, but I have the manual, and will do that sometime this coming week. Any out of the box suggestions would be helpful.

Had the same problem. Turned off all battery switches, disconnected shore power, turned off inverter, waited 10 minutes......now it works. No more problems.

Be sure to also disconnect the solar panel(s) if you have them.
