Now the system will not connect or connects long enough to turn power on or off to my command station.

Have you updated the firmware in the PR3 since you got it?
I had to do that on my rig and it immediately solved a bunch of problems I was having with USB communication.

Thanks Ed

I think I did when I went to windows 10 in 2019
I'll go to digitrax to see how to tell.
Using the DigiIPL application I can see the PR3 on COM3 running version 1.0 (which is the latest update)
