While your resetting things, If you havent done it,  try setting the braking CV61 to apply the brakes when F11 is pressed. I  think i set the cv value for 61 to ten or 15 on my on30 forney, if your not familar with this when you set the braking rate cv to anything but 0 when you press f11 the brakes are appied and sqeal as it stops, its a hoot,
