On my Pace Arrow 38P, my ICC switch is located low on my dash, in order to use it I have to take my eyes off the road for a second or two. Has anyone ever re-located the same type of switch closer to the steering wheel where it can be reached easily?

Interstate Commerce Commission

It's the switch that flashes your clearance lights, used when passing to thank another driver for flashing his headlights when it's safe for you to change lanes to be in front of the other vehicle.

Don't you wish that most truck drivers were that polite!

We always flash our ICC even when a semi that we passed didn't flash the ok to come back into their lane (of course, after we SEE we've got the room). And we also flash our headlights when a semi passes us & wants back in our lane.

I'd say, only about half the time truckers courtesy flash the all clear to come back in their lane for us or ICC a "thank you" flash back to us when we flash the all clear for them. I always feel a little dissappointed when they don't.

Like elsewhere in life, some are more courteous that others.

Glad to learn what ICC refered to:I don't have one ,in fact my W22 didn't even have a flash to pass switch.Installed a DIY switch after an inquiry to WH yielded only the statement that "that chassis did not have such a switch."Very helpfull!

Never feel disappointed. I pretty much follow the same procedure. Have found I get more TY flashes after my okay to come in flash. Now I attended a seminar by a WSP and was told that flashing headlights were illegal but would be pretty hard pressed to write anyone for doing something safety related. OTOH, would chase down is the flash was to warn on coming traffic of radar ahead.

I've found that more truckers flash their headlights for me than my fellow RVer's do. I almost never get an "All-Clear" from another Rver.

What do you do in the daytime? My ICC only works when the headlights are on.

In that case you would have to operate your parking light switch several times.

Another option is to activate your emergency flashers for several flashes. I see more and more truckers doing that.
