It says its a very time consuming install for an experianced tech.
Sure looks simple to me.

Thanks Mike,
We once installed magnet units in the 70's when cruise was a car option.
Looks like it should work, Just a little wiring. Easy on an FC
Hopefully this will work, maybe Kiki can start a group buy??

Cruise air does not work in an are were temperature in the summer months are above 108 F. I had to use a water hose under my Liberty coach with cruise airs. if any one plans to have this type of cooling have to consider how to cool the condenser unit. The other consideration is the cost, you can buy 3 roof airs for the price of 1 cruiser air.

I have the Rostra Cruise Control on my 1946 Ford Tudor Sedan. It works.

My wife’s been nagging me to get cruise control for a while now.

King Cruise was the truth, but Steve gave it up.

I put a Rostra cruise control on Echo last year, it works great. Just make sure you glue on the magnets, they will fly off in a short time otherwise.

There was a time I thought 4 mags @ 90 degrees was the plan as 4 were in the kit. Never worked right until I removed 3, seamless operation w/one.
