    HI @ all,

    my cruise isn´t working any more. Last year I had a fire in the main harness. It was repaired from a RV doctor at a campground because engine didn´t start any more.
    After he was gone I found that the cruise was´nt working .

    Does anybody know where I can get a wiring diagram for the cruise?

    Since it is a Ford and all the systems should be standard Ford. It might be a whole lot EZer to just install an aftermarket Cruise.

    Thank, LEN. But because I´m german my english isn´t very well. What does EZer means and could you senk me a link for example what kind of cruise do you mean?
    And yes, all is Ford.

    EZ = easy There are stand alone cruise controls for add on aftermarket. They come with a speed sensor and a control for the steering wheel and a power unit that controls the amount of throttle. Google your make and model and there are many options.

    Big Joe - Ford had a number of recalls on their cruise control wiring. I had to take my truck in for one. You might be able to get your Ford delaer over there pay for the fix or a replacement.

    Most any good ford dealer should be able to find the problem. may just be a simple wire left off. Did the tech replace the complete wiring harness?

    Thank you all for your tips.
    @Nash: No, he repaired only the melted wires.
    @Jim: Yes, I will talk about that with a Ford dealer, thanks!
    @Len: I think I will try to repair the cruise.
    I will check all wires before I go to a Ford dealer, perhaps one wire is melted, too.

    Thanks, but I´m afraid you have to wait a long time, because the motorhome is just for vacations when I´m in the US.
    And that will not be before July 2013.
    And before I have to find a cheap insurance, last year I nearly paid $800, although I used it only for 4 weeks:(

    Joe check into a insurance co that will insure just when traveling and still have the unit insured when storage. Think Good Sam offers this.
