Thanks for updating this, @Neal. Very sad!

This is something us older RVers need to think about; what to do if the driver has a sudden health emergency. Though we know we can never be fully prepared for an event like this, LadyDi and I have discussed this possibility and have a procedure in place to help deal with it. Nothing elaborate, just a basic gain control and get the coach stopped procedure,

Since we use cruise control quite a bit, just understanding how to turn it off quickly is a good place to start. And, once under control and pulled off the roadway, immediately activate the parking brake. Once that is done, we will start dealing with the actual medical emergency; 911, CPR, etc.
