Mystery unmarked knob in the dash.

Accidently on the way home from the Manistee get together I flipped the cruise control switch to the on position. About 5 seconds later I realized my cruise control worked. I had to slow down and couldn't figure out how to slow down so I turned off the cruise control. I figured Barth was too smart not to have a way to slow down or speed up, so I turned the mystery dial and found out it controls your speed while the cruise control is on!
Not a remote control for black water dumping on those people tail gating!

I never would have guess that knob was linked to the cruise control.
Thanks for sharing your find.

Sorry we were not able to help you figure out this plexing problem. You did what you needed to by process of elimination brought you to your solution.

Never heard of having a knob to adjust the cruise.

Great meeting you!

Man I wish I had a knob that activated the Dilithium Crystal and I could go back in time and get my Royale when it was new, but sadly I don't have a clock tower in my town even if I had a knob.
Only a few on here will prob. get the pop culture references. But all that is true ( except I am pretty sure I don't have any Dilithium Crystal on my coach ) hmm

Paul wouldn’t the knob activate the Flux capacitor for time travel? Then you wouldn’t need the clock tower and a precise lightning strike. The Dilithium Crystal would just leave you wanting “more power” but you could slingshot around a roundabout to gain momentum for time travel. Shields Up Shields Up Shields Up

Ok here goes my best Clifford C. Clavin, Jr impersonation
( He was the mail man on cheers )

No that is a common misconception Dana, you see flux capacitors gets there name from electro motion enzymes that freely circulate around in the capacitor. Now these capacitors are produced by milking the mother fluxer caterpillar from a remote region in Uzbekistan and is more like snake venom than milk. Because this flux enzyme is so rare, they only produce it in small quantities on the 3rd of every month and as such these flux capacitors are only used in DeLoreans which had a curb weight of 2,844 lbs with a full tank of fuel.
