I didn't want to hi-jack another thread and so starting my own and posting this question here.
Possible noob question relating to this topic. I have a LionChief 2 Big Boy (SKU: 1932162). My transformer puts out 17.5 volts. If I keep the mode in program mode to use a universal remote and turn the voltage down, is that bad or will it hurt the locomotive? I just tried it out and the locomotive runs "fine" with less voltage but I stopped any further testing before consulting with you folks.
I connected to bluetooth and also the universal app but was also wondering if there was a way to "turn off" the engine until I connect it. Basically, when I first power the track with AC it did not "turn on" but once I pressed the #1 button on the universal remote as I have it programmed already it connected right away. Curious now because each time I turn on track power the engine idles and produces smoke. I am wondering if I can potentially change that back to "idle only once connected".
Thanks everyone. Hope you're all having a great weekend.
