Auto Parke Brake Larry Lamb 10-2-09  
In reading the post regarding problems that a lot of people have had or are having with this sysem. I understand why the one on my 1995 Air Stream does not work at all. With amount of money spent and the success rate, I would like to by pass this system and create a manual
system which would be controled by the driver like most park brakes are.
I was wonder what it would be involve to simply use the foot lever and a cable to apply the brake and release it. Thus by passing the hydraulic unit.
Any help would be appreciated.

Larry and all
Auto_Park is not really complicated,it is designed to hold Heavy RV's built on truck frames, some do have the Foot pedal and Auto-Park systems-BUT the foot is only assist to the Auto-park Hydraulic system,eliminating or Jury rigging any part of the Brake system-you are asking for Huge problems-due to your rv rolling away and killing or causing huge damage somewhere.Yes it can be done---I WOULD NOT do it to mine-I know how to maintain Auto-Park and repair if necessary.

Hello All:

After our own endless frustration with the P-30 Autopark system, we have developed a Retro Fit Kit that address the most serious problems and provide feedback to troubleshoot the system when it does go bad. You can find out all about it at: http:\\

Rich, i've had no luck in geting a response on my problem, an help would be appreciated. i have a 1996 itasca on a chevy chasis. the problem just started on our last trip, when i noticed the coach would roll while in park. auto park light never goes out, but the coach brakes work properly. they dont lock up or any thing. also i can't find the fuse for the system, so i confirmed every one in the fuse panel. am i missing a fuse panel somewhere? thanks for any help you can give. in the mean time i'll keep looking.
