HELP!
I have a Multimaus - z21 Starter set, I am trying to program an un-coupler. I have read all the blogs. I still can't get it to work. I get to step 8 of Suzies blog, am lost from there. Sure wish there was a Utube Video out there for programming the un-coupler and the Lights. I need to actually see it done, several times most likley. I've seen a video on programming the turnouts it helped a lot. Other videos have helped. I am lost otherwise.
Please help if you can. 😕

What is the problem?

all you should need to do is add an uncoupler to the layout diagram -and give it an address - say 101. You then program the uncoupler to have address 101.

When driving the layout you simply press the uncoupler on the layout diagram and it will activate and if you have a train on top at the time it will uncoupler.

is that what you needed to know?

Hi Lain and thank you for responding to my problem.

First let me say this, I am 70, you know "HOUSE PHONES".

Are you familiar with the z21 and Multimaus system? I am also using the Roco software on my laptop.

I've got the uncoupler in the layout, but HOW do I program the darn thing into the Multimaus? I mean a step-by-step Video would sure help.
They have everything else in video on the net, I searched hi and low, no luck.

But here's the thing.

I just started with the DCC world. I am learning but I am having trouble with all this tech stuff. I can program Turnouts on my Multimaus [RED], but still have a problem with the uncoupler. The engines are not a problem yet. I don't intend to run more than one engine at a time [Not yet Anyway].

Do I program the uncoupler, in the "LOCO" area or in the Turnout area?
And HOW to do it.

A video would sure help. All I got so far is:

Here goes with a step by step guide.

1. Make sure there is only the loco you want to program on the track (unless you have a separate programming track).

2. Press and hold the [MENU] button for ten seconds until the display changes.

3. Use the arrow buttons (either side of the [STOP] button) to choose 'PROGRAM'

4. Press [OK]

5. Use the arrow keys to select 'CV MODIFICATION'

6. Press [OK]

---------- THISIS WHERE IT GETS FOGGY -------------

7. Press [1] (to select CV1, the address CV).

8. Enter the address you want to use (1 - 99)

9. Press [OK]

Job done!

Hope this explains everything. I hope you can help.

Thanks again

I do know the multimaus as I have one, but i never use it to program CVs because it is too awkward, I simply use the program on the PC which is so simple 🙂

You will find the details on page 47 of this manual

Whether you program the uncoupler as a Loco or Accessory will be determined by the uncoupler, and you don't say what you have - though it almost certainly an accessory.

when you want to use it with the Multimaus you simply select the Right Hand Button (Turnouts), type in the number of the uncoupler (e.g. 101) and then press the right or left direction key to raise or lower the uncoupler - think of it as a turnout on its side 😉
