Solved my own problem!!
Thanks for your reply, Robin - I agree, my cruise control circuit does not appear to have it's own fuse. And my unit doesn't have the smart wheel (wish it did) - All controls are in the armrest, and that is where the problem was: The Cruise On/Off switch has a bad contact! It is intermittant on one side of the DPST switch and that prevented the cruise from working.
I was actually in the process of installing the BrakeSwitch - Homer Hawks has been a great help - my Ambassador is not wired like many of the Monaco units he has experience with. We finally got the brakeswitch to work as it is supposed to, then I "lost" the cruise control. Well, between Homer in North Carolina and me in AZ, we determined that the Cruise on/off switch had gone bad, now I just need a new switch and it will be better than ever!
So tomorrow I'll try Northwest RV (or Monaco if I can get an answer in parts) and try to find a new switch.
