I have a 1995 Winnebago Rialta with a 1994 Eurovan Cab. The cruise works occasionally, and then only for short periods of time before cutting off.
I have replaced the Cruise Control Module, a Dealer has checked the vacuum pump, no problems there. Any suggestions?

Check the brake pedal cancel switch. It could be out of adjustment or bad.

You have intermittent non working conditions and if the brake pedal is loose, any vabrations can cause the cancel switch to be activated. Switch could be good but being interutpted.

Try driving with cruise control and use a foot to lift the pedal and see if problem does not occur.
