Cruise Control

Hi everyone I have as above a 94, 34í RexHall Aerbus DP, Cummins 5.9, bought eyes wide shut. Has been mostly in the shop since I bought it. I might be seeing some light at the end of the tunnel, but the Cruise Control would not hold speed, wandered on the flat, sped up and back down. The shop is reluctant to repair, they are more into replacing. They have found a frayed wire cable and so have disconnected the cruise control as they are unable to source a, or any, satisfactory parts source. We are in Canada and this shop does not source anything outside Canada, no idea why, seem silly. The MH is built on a 93 Oshkosh Motor Truck Co. X Line. With air springs. Of course Oshkosh is out of business, sold, bought, sold again. Does anyone have any ideas experience with sourcing, obtaining OEM parts information, on these older chassis drive parts, Please any ideas, suggestions.

Also as further above I did not receive any feed back on the RV club https://ultimatervcamping.com/spring.html

Does any one have any experience with them? They surely do offer a lot of RV discounts, difficult to believe every RV park would discount for them, why?
Thanks

Years ago I added an after market cruise control to a car. Perhaps you could put one in.

I did contact the MR company found them very co operative the recommended a replacement unit. Garryís Repair where I had just spent thousandís, yes thousands and they refuse to but]y from the USA and will not install owners bought parts. They say they cannot obtain the same warranty protection. So they sent me away with no cruise control. As the existing galloped and hav a frayed cable. Very disappointing, Iíll get it fixed in the USA. Thanks everyone.

Well I am going to be the wet noodle on the idea of cruse control. Mine works great, but I do not use it due to increased fuel consumption and the fact that I want to be in control. I drive my motorhome the same way I did my airplane, in control. Remember mine is just an opinion, not a fact of life.

thank you.when I was flying fixed wing we did trim out and able to relax a bit. Maybe even auto pilot. The helicopter was a different story. I get what you are saying but just being able to take my foot off the throttle helps with cramps i’m an ole coot. Hands on wheel, eyes on road, dashboard. RV mirrors etc. but I do like to bend, relax my leg. Point taken though MH is not a car.Thank you for the input.
