Cruise can be a few things but, after fuse, I would check cruise cutout switch attached to brake pedal. It could be out of adjustment.

Checked fuses.....have brake lights. Didn't know there was adjustment on that switch at the pedal.

I was thinking it was the switch off the column since the wiper don't work properly.

impact1973,
it would help to know the chassis particulars of your coach.
you can add this info to the signature area of your profile.

if you have a workhorse w20 chassis, there are 2 parts to the brake light switch that work with a plunger on the brake pedal arm.
i have posted detailed info on how to adjust this switch with a multimeter.
you can use the search function of this forum to access this info.
if you have the tilting steering wheel, sometimes there is a problem where the wire loom abrades when the steering wheel is tilted multiple times.

It very well could be the on/off cruise switch. The reason I mentioned the brake pedal is some vehicles have a switch down there for the brake lights and the cruise cutout. Some are incorporated into the same switch. If your rig has the former, that switch could be bad, stuck or out of adjustment. A simple look should tell the story.

Read this first for a better understanding and other possible causes:

http://autorepair.about.com/cs/gener...a100302a_2.htm

Since pressing the brake pedal breaks the circuit to the control module, you need to see if that switch is engauged when the brake is released. If you're lucky, the switch will be a plunger type and should be easy to see if it is depressed even slightly. If so, make adjustments. If not, the switch could be bad or a loose wire to it. To test the switch you would need a multi-meter to see if the switch is allowing 12+v current to go through it. If it's a lot less, say 7v, the internal contacts are corroded.

Now to complicate things a bit, that switch could work in reverse. In other words, I've seen them when in cruise mode, the switch is depressed and when the brake is applied, the plunger is released. This should be obvious when you get a close look.

All this said, the main 2 reasons for cruise failure is brake switch and bad/broke/loose wires in the cruise lever on the column. Since you see problems there now, that is the logical problem area. Up to you were you want to begin. Good Luck!
