Yes, take the two wires off the foot switch and connect them to a toggle switch.
You could connect a test light to the solenoid in the rear for your wife to see each time you engage the switch. Having a visual with the light might help her. You would know each time you used the switch if you were getting voltage to the PacBrake solenoid.

God Bless and have a great day.
I love have the foot switch. it makes it easy for a fast application of brakes when people do stupid things on the road. Once you fix it, use it all of the time when you brake. That's what's it's for.

Hi Tim,
Pretty exciting today, closer to a remedy for the pacbrake. Today is the first day that any of the system has worked. Seeing the 2 on the shift pad was neat and when the pacbrake kicked in it was even neater. The tranny shifting is constant but the pacbrake did not kick in every time. I pulled the relay and tried another relay. Perhaps the spade connections on the relay were a little corroded. God Bless,
Ed

Tim, I finally got around to looking at the inverter as you suggested. It had a very fast blinking green light. According to the list, it was charging. Went inside and pulled the cover off the electric panel and checked the inverter wire. Not showing any voltage. Not sure how to check voltage at that breaker. How do you check voltage at the breaker for the inverter? Looked at the RC7 GS and noticed the green light for the inverter was not on. See pic. Hit the on button and the green light came on. Hit the on button for the fridge and it comes on. Me thinks the inverter was off all the time. I was silly enough to think if the green light was blinking on the inverter itself, it was inverting. Not so. Sometimes I can't see the forest for the trees. Again you have been such a blessing. Hope your havin a great time at Oskosh.
God Bless,
Ed

The flashing green light (fast flashing) on the inverter means it is float charging the batteries. Push the On/Off switch on the panel in the picture and the green light on the panel should come on steady showing (inverting) if your not plugged in or running the generator.

Tim, thank you for taking the time to post the pdfs for the RC7-GS. They will be invaluable for me and anyone else who doesn't have the information.
God bless,
Ed
