It think that's made more for his pressure washer, because I still think it's not good to idle down with the vacuum hose attached to it and water pump activated

Now if there's some fancy remote setup that can pop off that vacuum hose also...

You guys are goobers with your desire to be more remote

I have idled down with hose connected and water pump on for the life all my machines. Actually go out of my way idling down with vac on so it gets most water through and doesnt drip on the next layout. And I leave the pressure pump on to cool down on idle as Im reeling up the vac.

What is the concern?
Having a truck with and without remote, it is the most awesome upgrade there is.

For a slide in, I alway thought that putting a load (hoses hooked up and water pump on) on the engine wasn't good for it.

I have no proof that it is, so I might be wrong

If say your under load with clogged filters and you idle down it can shut down.

I believe if your in the home going to idle down unhook hose from wand.

Give it a 15 seconds idle down.
