P30 Chev auto engage brakes Greg Adams 12-25-08  
We have a 2000 Fleetwood Flair motorhome and the auto engage brakes would not release. We finally got them bypassed. Does anyone know how to change the auto engage system to a manual engage system. We have read horror stories from some who have had the fuse blow and the brakes engage at highway speeds. This has to be a design flaw on Chevrolet's part. I would like to change the system to avoid future problems. We have been stranded by this system 3 times in the last year. Please help if you can. My personal e-mail is: Thanks in advance.

Greg, have you had any luck with making your brakes a manual apply system? I have an 03' winnebago that has suffered simular problems.. I just paid a truck shop $400.00 to get the system working again, but now the auto park light stays on, or flickers with the silinoid going nuts... I would like to re-do the system where it works solely off the yellow dash switch... if you have any info please share, thanks, Allen

Allen, Have you had anl luck on the Auto Park? I spent over $1800.00 At Camping World and the light is back on once more.

Any info that you may have would be a help.Thanks,Mike

Go to

for a substantive discussion about this parking brake. Also, go to Workhorse site (assuming you have a Chevy engine); you will find a manual about your chassis, in the PARTS MANUALS section(You will have to register to get the download).

You probably need a pressure valve still available through GM dealers.

The brake, which sits behind the transmission, must have oil pressure to release; it can be disabled; without oil pressure to release it in drive, it stays set and the RV won't move...
