    Hi
    can anyone point me in the direction of a cruise contol mechanism (short of a brick under the accelerator) for my coach built Hymer 07 plated m home?
    too many years of kicking a leather ball around have lessened my knee's ability to hold the accelerator down.
    thanks
    roger:Smile:

    I would have thought on a 07 plate Mercedes will be able to retro fit a manufactors part
    Keep bumping post up as it is bank holiday week end and all dealers and techy are probably away

    retro fitting the OEM version of cruise control means changing out several components. it is easier to fit a universal CAN bus compatible CC kit and far cheaper

    you could do as LADA did on their 'cars' :Rofl1: in the 80s....fit a hand throttle.

    now that was effective but God, was it dangerous. :Eeek:

    They do indeed, plus their service is superb and the cruise control is very very good. Just in case you hadn't realised I am over the moon with mine...and the fitting:Smile:
