Eaton/Vorad Adaptive Cruise Control

I have this system in my Coach and I want to make some adjustments to the following distance, etc. I have tried to locate an owners manual to no avail. Does anyone have the owners manual for a 2006 vintage system that you could share?

Thank you!

I have the operation manual.
PM me your email address and I will email it to you.
By the way, I really like it. My wife likes it even more because without it i tend to follow too close.

I removed the Vorad controller and sent it to them and they updated the software. It works fantastic now. The guy I called was Rick Youngblood with Eaton Vorad, and his phone was 866.788.6723. He helped me adjust the front radar panel so it looked exactly straight foreword and the correct height. Mine seemed to look to far right and to high. Now just changing lanes after being slowed behind a vehicle it will accelerate back to cruise speed.....

Good luck
Dave

Here are some other documents.

I had to replace the front radar antenna last year. The cruise control won't work with a bad front antenna. I use it with the cruise control all of the time and really like it, especially in city traffic.

I have a problem with the left side but haven't gotten around to looking at it.

Dave, do you have any idea what the software improved or changed?

Hypoxia, Ii has been 6 years since I did it and I can't remember what Rick told me. I would call him with your model and ask, yours is 3 years newer than mine.

Sorry
Dave

Thanks for the replies guys. Mine does work great but inadvertently held the toggle switch down and must have bumped it a few times after that because I have changed the speaker volume and it also beeps when I am father away from the vehicle in front of me than it did before. I am trying to find out what the different settings are when you toggle the switch after holding it forward for a few seconds. I will try calling the Eaton number that was posted.

Thanks everyone.

Unfortunately the Eaton number appears to no longer be functional. I sent a message to their Customer Support group. I hope to hear from them.

So I got the nerve to press and hold the toggle switch in the forward position. After about ten seconds "V1" shows on the dash display. Once that is displayed every time you press the toggle forward or back it increases or decreases the speaker volume. That the only thing that can be changed that I could see. I thought there were other things that I saw on the display but it must have been V2,V3, etc as I hit the switch again. Thought everyone would like to know about the volume adjustment if you were not already aware.

Thanks to everyone who chimed in to help me out.

Thanks for the Bendix contact hypoxia. I was not aware that Bendix now owned the Vorad system.

Thanks hopoxia. I did not know Vorad phone # was changed. My Vorad has worked perfect for years with no need to contact them. I deleted the last phone # and put the Bendix # in my phone.

Thank you
Dave

I have the vorad and I love it..wish every vehicle I own did. Small problem i have is when I hit a hard bump,like a concrete bridge it will make a beep sound and cruise control stops working. Does not happen that offend but when it does i have to turn off engine and restart to reset it. Then it is fine. Any ideas? Thanks
