Scan gauge set up

I know I can get this answer to my question here. Went and got my motorhome out of storage today and notice that my scan gauge came unplug from J1708 outlet. After plugging it back end had to reset the gauges that I wanted to read not problem with that. But when I turn off motorhome and turn it back on the screen goes back to home page. I know their is a way to keep it on the gauges I want to read with out re putting them back in but forgot what it was ( old age thing) so question is how do I go about setting it up to keep the gauges on the screen that I want with out going thru the hole ordeal each time

Thanks guys, Randy

Scan Gauge

6. Turn the vehicle on. Start your vehicle or turn the ignition to the ON position.
7. Plug the ScanGauge Plug Into The Diagnostic Connector. While inserting in the plug, you may have to rotate the plug to align the connector pins. Once the pins are aligned, push firmly on the plug to complete the connection.Once connected with the vehicle running or the ignition in the ON position, your ScanGauge will display the Connecting Screen, and then quickly switch to the Home Screen.When the Home Screen is displayed, your ScanGauge is connected and has established communication with your vehicle’s computer. Connecting...<TRIPMORE>Connecting Screen<SCAN<TRIPGAUGE

Here is troubleshooting section from the Scan"D" manual.


If you have a different model, you could try scangauge.com and look for the proper manual, or 888-433-5664.
