I have been using the standard 1 amp EZ command control center for some time and recently upgraded to add the 5 amp power booster to my layout so that I could add more locomotives.  I didn't have a problem with the reversing loop module and the 1 amp system but now with the 5 amp booster my DCC locomotives hesitate for approximately 1 second when entering or exiting the loop when the reversing loop module activates.  it appears that the 5 amp booster sees a short and cuts off power due to an over load before the reversing loop module can respond. I have set the control on the reversing loop module to the maximum 10 amps but that hasn't helped. The reversing loop module is connected to the track using the 18 gage wire supplied with the module. There appears to be an incompatibility between these two Bachmann products. Is there a way to increase the response time of the reversing loop module or decrease the response time of the 5 amp booster? Would increasing the gage of the wire connecting the reversing loop module help?
