High Idel

They should have showed you that on the walk around if you had one and if the demo person knew what it was for.

I can turn on the exhaust brake at idle but can't do the high idle thing with the cruise. I would like to have it the other way.

High idle should be engaged on the big diesel engines anytime the rig is idling for an extended period. The oil pressure is marginal at low idle. That is ok for normal traffic situations but not for extended idle periods.

My DP cruise control will allow me to set the idle rpm, but it is not automatic as the OP described.

It's also good for building up air pressure faster if you've bled the air off to empty the air bags.

Did you also know that pushing the "Mode" button will make the transmission be less aggressive in shifting in rolling hills situations.

at least on ours it DOES goes to high idle on it's own after a bit....

I was actually out at the storage area to check some things and fired it up and went back to the rear bath and while back there, all of a sudden the rpm started climbing Had to look to see if someone came into the coach to step on throttle

As Jim said, I dump the air and get VERY tired of the warning ding when it is airing back up at idle, so I will bounce the rpm's up just a bit and it pumps up the air much faster !

As stated I can use throttle to set whatever rpm I want and then engage cruise control and it will hold that rpm until cruise shut off or brake pedal activated.

My MH does not, and will not do that. I've tried it every time I read such a statement.
