Need some expert advise. While traveling down the road with cruise on and if I hit a rough spot or bump in the road, it kicks out. It will reset with no problem, but if we hit another it will kick out. This is on our 2001 Bounder 36S, V10. Just started this last summer. Thanks, Roger

A poor or loose gnd connection on your chassis frame or a poor bulb connection in a socket can cause your cruise to disconnect from a sudden vibration. There maybe a bolt attached to your chassis frame, with gnd wires on it, mine is on the front frame, under the radiator. If your light ckts are on during the day, a loose or dirty bulb socket will kill the cruise, check your dirrectional light sockets for corrosion an clean an protect with di-elect grease. If you tow a car the cable plug connection between car an MH may have a poor connection within it. Any interruption of lighting ckts or gnd's will cut off cruise.---"007"

put a stiffer return spring on the brake pedal. it is bouncing into the brake lite switch which cuts out cruise.

I'll second what 007 said - check all of your connections, particularly your grounds. Also, make sure that the fuse is makinga good contact, and not corroded - had that problem once.

Thanks to all. I will start checking all the suggestions today. I looked at the brake pedal this am and thought: "how in the world would anyone get into there to check a problem". Guess I will find out. Thanks, again. Roger

Skip the brake pedal - that is not the problem. If the pedal were the cause, it would have to have quite a bit of slop in it, and the way that brake light switches are set up, it's the last thing that I wiould check. If it were the cause, your brake lights would be going off and on routinely.
