P30 auto park brake problems Myron Shipley 5-18-06  
I have a 1997 Itasca on a 1996 Chevrolet chasis. Twice the auto brake failed. The first time about a year ago. It would not release. The tow truck driver found a blown 10A fuse under the dash. After replacing, the auto-park worked fine. The second time the auto brake engaged at highway speed and shelled the brake pads off the shoes. Again I found that same 10A fuse blown. After replacing the fuse, the brake mechanism was working but with all the damage to the brake shoes I still didn't a parking brake nor auto park. I have replaced the brake shoes and everything seems to be working correctly for the time being. This 10A fuse is not identified as to what it is protecting. It is in what appears to be and-on as it is housed in a add-on fuse block attached to the factory fuse block. I have owned the motorhome since it was new so I am sure it's been there since the motorhome was built. I would be very interested to find what this fuse controls so I could remedy the problem. Could you help? Thank you.

Re: P30 auto park brake problems Gabe 7-27-09  
Please help me find a part number for the auto park brake shoes. I have 2002 Itasca Sinova 30ft. Can these brakes be adjusted after failure with pressure switch and driving for several hundred miles with park break engaged.

We just purchased a 1994 allegro bay 34 ft on a P30 chassis and need to get a schematic for the entire electrical system. Also I would like any info on the auto brake problems and how to fix them. I did notice that when I put the rv in park it does not hold the rv. I have to set the emergency brake. Is this normal? If not what do I do to fix it?

I need to replace the break pads on the drive shift the autopark engaged when I was driving. Is there a Manual or write on this subject
RE: RV Brake Problem Roland Townsend 2-10-09  
I have a 1999 Allegro with a Chevy workhorse chassis. My brakes have completely gone out before as I was driving. Luckily I was able to just coast until my unit stopped. After sitting there for an hour, I had brakes again. On another occasion as I was driving my unit, I smelled something burning. We had to be towed to the nearest shop and they replaced the front left brake caliper that had burned up.
My emergency brake has also locked up several times. Can anyone help me with my brake problem?
2001 Fleetwood Flair parking brake problem Kate 3-17-09  
The parking brake on the steering collumn and the yellow pull button has stopped working. I got underneath and found the pump reservoir and it looks like its leaking but I can't tell from where.

I've read the posts about the fuse...? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. It's a real pain to stop for gas alone on a slope!!!!!
Re: P30 auto park brake problems Don Adams 4-1-09  
I have a 1999 Sountwind on a '98 Chevrolet P-chassis, and the fuse you refer to is the one controlling the auot-apply parking brake. I have the same problem, but fuses blow every time my shift lever hits park. The CAM-actuated switch about half-way up the steering column on the left side is the culprit. I have a Chev. diagram (from manual) that shows two points to "attach CAM switch bypass".
What I cannot find out is whether this is a hard-wire shunt, or whether it is an aftermarket switch to be wired in and mounted on the dash. At any rate, I will have to go around that CAM switch. Sounds like it is your problem too.

Our 98 Brave auto park brake is locked up. We Backed into our driveway late Weds night and went to move in Thurs morning and the brake is locked up and it will not move. We didnot even engage the parking brake as our driveway is level.
Re: P30 auto park brake problems Eaglestorms 9-25-09  
We have a '94 Pace Arrow GMP30. I experienced a lose of pwr Strg fluid and loss of pwr strg and then the pwr brakes. I can't find a leak, but the p/s Resevoir did overflow. When in park, I have pwr steering and brakes. But when I put it in drive, I loose all boost to both. Could I have a vacuum leak? The brake light goes out if I rev the engine in park, but won't go out if I put it in drive.
Thanks for any help.
Re: P30 auto park brake problems patrick 6-11-10  
Where do you add hydro fluid to the 1993 pace arrow p30 parking brake if it is low or how do you check it as well to see if it is low... any help? thank pat
Re: P30 auto park brake problems Kyle R. Morris 7-24-10  
I've read every entry on this site and I'm amazed that so many of us have had this problem (dating back to 2006!)
I have a 1995 Itasca Suncruiser. It's been in the shop three times already (this is # 4 ) with the following problem:

The parking brake will not disengage (light on)
I have NO power steering or brakes
when I shift from Park to Drive or Reverse, the RV WILL move....just not turn or STOP.
When I return the transmission to PARK and shut the motor off POWER STEERING ( Hydro. fluid ) POURS out of the overflow tube on the top of the canister.
The only solution my shop has found is to bleed the entire system of air and re-fill the Hydro fluid. It's almost like I have an air leak somewhere that allows air into the line and will not allow the fluid to
flow through the lines. Does this sound reasonable to anyone...and is there a better solution to it? This is getting costly!!!! Thanks in advance!

Re: P30 auto park brake problems Gary 2-5-10  
I have a 1993 Winnebago Adventurer. Put into drive one day and had no power steering and no brakes. Put into park and problem resolved; put back into drive-same thing.

I replaced power steering pump, replaced hydroboost-did not fix the problem. I unhooked the auto parking brake, and brakes returned but pedal was very low. Power steering returned, but with a whining noise.

Can you help?

Re: P30 auto park brake problems Tom Cambria 11-3-09  
1992 Airstream 34' Class A - The emergency brake hasn't worked in several years. The auto-park brake suddenly stopped holding. I have been under the vehicle (with the wheels chocked) and I've watched the hydraulic system actuate when the shift lever is moved to park. I haven't been able to determine whether a cable is damaged or there is something wrong under the brake drum. I am unable to remove the nuts securing the drive shaft yoke to the brake drum because it appears that they're on bolts (which turn) rather than to studs. Obviously, I haven't figured out a way to hold the bolts (which are inside the brake drum.) I would appreciate any info which would help me solve this problem
Re: P30 auto park brake problems Jim 12-16-09  
Chevrolet P-30 frame with the slide-out, model 235. The question I have is, after driving it 1400 miles in three days; last day 400 miles in 80 degree weather. I pulled into the RV park and had to put it in reverse to back into my site. The engine sounded like it had a load on it, but it didn't move backwards. I gave it more gas and still it didn't move, though the motor sounded like it was trying hard, sounded kind of like the emergency brake was on, but it was not on. I shifted it to park then to drive and it would go forward, but not reverse. I shifted it to 1st then to reverse several times and still it wouldn't move in reverse, only forward. I did apply the emergency brake to see if it some how came ON by itself and released it two times, by the way I had not used the emergency brake for months prior to this. I then shifted it into reverse again and it did move into reverse, and the motor did not seem to be loaded as before. I parked it and have not tried it since. In one of the issues of FMCA I read about a relay that controls the donut brake (emergency brake) on the driveshaft. They suggested to replace a relay to correct that problem, which I don't remember what that was, or where the relay was located. Could You help me trouble shoot this problem PLEASE, and also locate the position of that relay on my rig for future reference. Thank You So much in advance. Jim
Re: P30 auto park brake problems Paula 8-28-09  
After reading all of the comments and e-mails regarding the park brake assembly problems, it is obvious that this problems spans several years and various models. I too have had trouble with the system. I learned that there is no parking gear in the transmission on this size vehicle. The cog would not hold the weight and would break, so the "park" is totally dependant on this brake assembly. The whole system is connected by vacuum lines and hydraulcs including the power steering pump and powerbrakes. When applied, the brake drum on the transmission locks the drive shaft and you are NOT moving. This is definitly a situation that should be addressed by the manufacturer. My mechanic has also hit a dead end with trying to obtain information from Chevy/Gm. We are not talking about just a light that won't go off here. This is a braking system that either locks when it's not supposed to or does not engage when it should. This is a very dangerous situation. You are not going to stop 16,000 lbs. when it starts rolling. Will someone please give us the information we need to bypass and/or correct this problem that so many of us RVers seem to be having?
Thanks, Paula

I'm an RV tech in liberty lake WA. having problems with bleeding the powersteering system on a 91 P30 chassis. This coach has the steering/ brake/ auto park all run from the power steering pump in a closed loop. Changed the pump before I realiozed that I was dealing with the nightmare system that I know better than to mess with. Coach is sold and im trying to figure out how to bleed out the sys. Resivoir pukes out fluid, at initial start-up steering and brakes work fine, as soon as you roll about 5 feet I lose all power assist. Any help will be greatly appreciated!!!!!!! Thanks, Mike O'Brien

Winnebego Adventure P30 auto park brake stuck Jeff 8-8-07  
Hi I'm stuck in West Yellowston. The hydrolic fluid leaked out of the auto park engager. It is undernieth the RV just back past the trnsmission in the center. You will see a hydrolic cable looks like a black pipe going back that way. The little tank for the fluid holds less than a quart it's in the back of the metal holder protector peice. Put hydrolic fluid in there not brake fluid you should start going. The dany auto park light still stays on what a joke. That pisses me off having the brake automatically come on and off with the engine and putting it in park. I want to change it to manual and just disable the auto park system and make it only come on when I pull the parking brake and go off when I turn it off vs. being tied to some automatic system that sucks. I feel better hope that helps you I just paid 110.00 for some mechanic to bring me a quart of hydolic fluid fro the shop you can buy them for around $5.

I have a 1997 Holiday Rambler 32 foot HM with chevy 454 cid engine. Auto park light was blinking while driving, but now aput park will not hold MH.
This all happened after unit was towed with drive shaft removed.

Why does the autopark brake effect the regular braking system? I thought it only effected the emergency brake!
Re: P30 auto park brake problems Tom 10-24-06  
I am not an expert in this so please consider the source of this suggestion. That said, you might try a slightly larger fuse. It could be that you are right on the cusp of the current draw limit for the fuse you are using and if for instance you installed a 15 or 20 amp fuse the problem might go away. If you have a full short situation, it should still blow the fuse, so I don't think there is any risk of wiring damage by using the larger fuse. Start with the 15 and if that doesn't work, try the 20. If it is still blowing, then something somewhere is shorting it out. I wouldn't go any larger than the 20 amp. You could also try putting a current meter inline with the circuit and just see exactly what the current draw is. You can use a larger fuse if necessary just for the test. As these circuits get older, they will tend to draw more current than when they were new.
Re: P30 auto park brake problems Angela G. Smith 9-18-06  
Somewhere, somebody MUST be an expert in this field....after all, Chevy does pay engineers. We have a '95 Vectra on the '94-1/2 Chevy Chassis. When driving at highway-speeds, the autopark engaged and refused to release. We stopped & checked PSF and belt. Both OK so we decided to keep going.
I'm sure we glazed the linings on the parking brake, but we were only 30 miles from home with a sick child & took a chance. We can't find a chevy-dealer that is willing to even LOOK at the system. I was reading earlier posts concerning a 10A fuse, and also a possible adjustment area inside the left fender area. I've read the shop manual and the only solution it gives is replacement of the 4-way valve connected to the PS unit. This can't be the only answer...Any ideas?

Re: P30 auto park brake problems Chris 8-15-06  
I also have a problem with my auto park brake on my '96 National Dolphin; National are clueless and the chevy hotline is about as much use as a chocolate fireguard!
I am a mechanic by trade, (23 years exp) but all the chevy hotline could do was offer to send out a breakdown truck. When I asked would the breakdown guy have any knowledge of the system, I was told that he would just be a local truckrecovery unit - so no help there either. I have trid various dealers and none are willing to make a sugestion, none can fir me in for a couple of weeks or so. My light on the dash flickers constantly and the relay underneath clicks on and off in time to the light, but without some sort of clue, my 23 yeasr are wasted. I know either the pressure must be low or there is an electrical fault. The fluid level id=s plebnty high but it didn't stop my brake coming on on the top of an 11,000 ft pass. Overfilling the reservior and letting the system cool down seemed to help i.e. I could drive on without the brake on, but it still tries to come on at every opportunity. Perhaps chevy, and certainly National, don't care if we all die crashing off the high passes.
Sorry if this sounds like a moan but where I come from, (The UK) this would never happen; the manufacturer would be straight on the case. Unfortunately I have had other problems with my RV and no-one cares a damn - I was even told by National, that RVs are disposable products!!! I'm disgusted with the whole set up!

Re: P30 auto park brake problems Bob Scott 5-20-08  
Some, but few mechanics have been able to deal with this problem!

I have a 1992 Coachmen Motorhome on a GM Forward Control Chassis (‘91). It has a problematic hydraulic system. "Autopark" ties together the Brakes, Emergency Brake, Park & Power Steering. I've spent over $4000 in the last year and it's not fixed yet!

Chassis = M-340 MB Chev

VIN 1GBKP37N4M3315805.

Here’s something I found that I found interesting posted on
08-11-02, 07:27 PM on

“Need Moderator with special expertise. I have a motorhome on a Chev P-30 chassis which has a special "auto apply" parking brake system. An expert in this field will know what I am refering to. The brake is held OFF with hydralic presssure and is automatically activated by a heavy spring when the gear shift lever is moved out of park. Also has yellow knob to pull in order to activate the brake when the shift lever is out of park and in one of the gears. System was malfunctioning, took to Chev service center. Replaced hydra pump and high pressure switch. System still not working and has since locked up. Oh yes, the brake is a drum type which locks up on the drive shaft. Anyone having ANY knowledge of the system and how to fix it would be greatly appreciated. Still under warranty but Chev tech support not any smarter than the service center which is very willing to keep on replacing parts. (no cost to me, except very inconvient.) Thanks”.

I have a 1996 Doplphin RV with Chev P-30 chassis. AutoPark system works ok when cold but will engage when gear selector is in R when hot. This prevents backing up the vehicle. Very inconvieniant! So far it has not happened when moving forward. I see lots of posts with the problem but no solutions. Any solutions would be appreciated.

Re: P30 auto park brake problems mark pupo 12-30-08  
Had P30 Chassis ('95 pace arrow) in to dealer with autopark problem- initially had to drive it with the 10amp fuse blown- used a 12v 50watt bulb in place of the fuse- discovered that if the selector was in neutral when starting, lite wouldn't lite and you could go to D or R without a problem- if you put it in P the 12v 50w lite would come on and autopark would engage, and the engine would stop. dealer eventually found melted wires at the transmission, where the big connector is on the side, next to the linkage, also had a leaky pressure switch at the pump assembly (leaking hydraulic fluid)- switch replaced, fluid added, and wires repaired at tranny resolved most issues- would like to see a diagram to disable the autopark and make it switch controlled not transmission controlled. my version has it's own hydraulic pump, doesn't use power steering pump for pressure and fluid. anything will help down the road.

also wire repair resolved strange gas gauge issues.

Thanks Mark

I need a stock # for the drive shaft brake shoes for my 97 pace arrow. I have given up trying to fix the electric auto brake pump and am going to use the emergency brake and wheel wedge. I have had to use a wheel wedge for years as the braking system is a piece of CRAP. It has broken down almost as soon as it is fixed.

Thanks to all the have written in this forum. I have a leak in the Pan area on my 1994 Allegro. The light on the Park will not extinguish. I had the unit fixed onece 3 years ago but the problem is Back..

When I switch from Park it squirts a little fluid out so I suspect a pressure lamp issue.
I thought this ran on the Power steering pump also.

I need to get it serviced all hints welcome on how to proceed. I have a local hero but he needs more information to proceed.

I was driving my 1993 pace arrow to get fuel and the brakes slowly locked up going down the road in a matter of 3 miles.Tow truck driver dropped driveline to tow it. The brake drum on the driveline was the culprit he says. Is this true? How do I go about taking care of this issue?

I've read about it through this site and need help obviously!

If anyone still cares, GM submitted a recall to the NHTSA in January of 2003. The GM recall number is 99V-279 and the NHTSA ID is PE99006.
You should be able to take that information to a GM dealer, capable of working with P30 units (ability to lift it, technician, etc.) and get this recall done at NO cost to you.
Let me know how that works out for you.

Re: P30 auto park brake problems Ed Meredith 5-23-10  
I understand the frustration with any one that has one of these. After three sets of shoes in one year I decided to find the problem. I found the cable that runs from the drum brake was not releasing all the way. The brake shoes would release enough to permit the coach to move but would continue to drag enough to cook the shoes.
This condition can be seen from underneieth. Have some one shift from park to drive and watch the cables move. The one from the drum will move as if it is releasing but not far enough If you touch it, you can move it about 1/2 inch more. The spring in the drum should do it but the shop replaced it and I cooked another set of shoes. I used a 'c' cable clamp so that cable was forced to move the shoes off the drum. Three years and same parking brake shoes. This system was a great idea. In fact it worked too well and burned out shoes if not adjusted.
My one mechanic accused me fo driving with the foot pedal on so I connected an alarm buzzer to it.
Re: P30 auto park brake problems Kermit Robertson 7-26-09  
There are a lot of problems with this parking brake system. Seems to me the solution is design a workaround MANUAL system and disengage the auto system totally. I am having the same problem but am disabled and it is very difficult for me to get under the motorhome. (1998 Winnebago Brave 31') Mine locked up backing into my driveway. Found the resivoir empty of transmission fluid (takes dexron iii.) Refilled resivoir but the Auto Park light stays on. It does release but if you turn the motor off you can hear it cycle again after a few seconds. It does not lockup but should not be cycling the way it does. Any suggestions?

Re: P30 auto park brake problems John Goldsmith 2-7-09  
Since the reverse position on the gear selector is so close the the park position I suspect the cam activator valve is out of adjustment. It is located behind a panel under the floor on the left side of the coach by the steering column. It is the valve that applies & disengages the autopark system. There is a notch on the cam and a hole in the mounting bracket that a 3/8th drill bit goes in to properly adjust the valve. The adjustment usally can be done by rotating the adjustment rod. We have seen the mounting bracket bent if the shift lever was forsed at some time. I hope this helps. j.goldsmith

but i set my driver's side front brakes on fire today, and i'm looking for any and all kinds of help to NOT do that again.
do not seem to be having issues with the rear brakes.....other than being WAY low on fluid (which i'm not at all sure even affects the rear, as they seem to be drums, and have the Auto-Park resevoir of tranny fluid right there near them in the box that houses the Auto-Park relay/RAM system....or whatever you call it....whereas the front is rotor and breaks pads, or shoes.
A 1997 Fleetwood (sumthin) Storm, 34' was given to me recently. Good news is its the 454, only 39,101 miles on it, original pretty much everything. Motor is a MPG.....buti don't like motor homes because they get good gas mileage. not even in my top 100 reasons.
anyways...bad news is....there's RUST everyfrikkinwhere. most of the ground wires, aren't grounded. and so forth.
therefore....when i discovered front breakpads were locked up, mainly on driver's side....(also where majority of undercarriage rust is located....i just figured they had bonded together and sprayed them down with some good ol' Napa break part cleaner.
longer story (a Littttle) shorter.... drivers side front locked uop and proceeded to catch fire with 200 yards. it was obvious that the engine waas under a much more serious load than the weight of the motor home itself. again....long story short. removed the calipers and shoes on driver front. did all the digging to find the damn brake fluid resevoir....WHAT a DICK move by somebody: putting the brake fluid resevoir in a basically accessible location for anyone under 27, or EXTREMELY persistent!
if you have ANY schematics on the 1997 Fleetwood Southwinds Storm, 34" P-30 chassis,( I need all the auto- break(auto-park?) stuff. i've l;ocated my green autobreak actuiator along the main line, slightly right side of the middle. my plan is to wire it in a manner that renders "AutoPark" obsolete, and null and void. i see no discernible advantage to having it there, and multiple possible major inconveniences with it. THE opposite of what i expect a motor home to be.
looking to set this one up right, from the tires up.
some help woulds be cool. whatever you got. been reading 3 straight now, and realize the extent of my problem.
help me get started if you're still out there.

Thanks, Richard Finch

97 fleetwood southwind, same problems as everyone else about the automatic brake system. Would love to see any and all ideas for solving the problems permantly. I just looked through a solution by Jeremy Peck where he uses a linear actuator to replace the whole hydraulic system, will probably fix mine like his, but looking for any other solutions as well. My e-mail is, and my phone number in Missouri is 660-263-7503

Re: P30 auto park brake problems Mike Chasmar 2-12-10  
It seems like there is a common problem with the Auto Park System. I have a 2005 Winnebago Sightseer and cannot get the auto park to disengage. I usually have to keep messing with the brake pedal, shifter and tilt wheel and then magically I will hear the brake disengage. Usually it take 10-15 minutes each time. It's a real PITA to go anywhere. Winnebago & Workhorse haven't been much help so far. I've checked the fuse and it's only blown 1 time but I still keep having the problem. Does anyone have a wiring diagram? I think I have a P-30 chassis. Any suggestions on what else to check? I have no leaks anywhere. Any help is appreciated.

I have a 1994 Fleetwood Southwind with P30 auto brake issues that happened just recently. When I put it in any gear except neutral, the Auto Park light comes on and I can't move the RV at all. I am not blowing fuses, but is there a way to disengage the pin holding the drive shaft in lockdown? If I pull the fuse completely will it shut it down and disengage?

Re: P30 auto park brake problems Dillard Duerksen 6-25-10  
I have had problems with the park brake on my George boy motorhome three times and each time it was a real problem finding someone to fix it. I presently had a problem where the MH would not move after being parked for road construction then when it released it would not hold but would roll. I need someone to give me the troubleshooting steps and fixes and part numbers for the parts so I can have spare parts and can fix it myself next time.

Re: BRAKE LIGHT ON AGAIN Howard 1-20-09  
The Auto Apply Brake system on the Chevrolet P30 chassis is applied by a very strong spring that operates a cable back to the drive line mounted parking brake drum. Hydraulic pressure provided by an electric pump and fluid reservoir operates a piston that compresses the spring to release the brake.

If the transmission selector is placed in park, and the ignition is in the run position, 12 volts is applied through a fuse to two switches, a low pressure switch which operates when hydraulic pressure is below 450 lbs, and the auto apply switch which operates when the transmission selector switch is removed from the park position. With the vehicle in park the pressure is below 450 lbs. The low pressure switch is operated and current is allowed to flow lighting the auto park lamp on the dash. With out hydraulic pressure the spring is at full extension pulling the cable to the parking brake at the back of the transmission fixed to the driveline. The emergency brake pedal is also attached to the cable. It is very easy to push on when the auto apply has been invoked.

When the selector is moved from the park position to reverse or drive, the auto apply switch is operated allowing current to flow to a pressure valve solenoid, and the maintain pressure switch which is closed below 1200 lbs pressure and opens at 1600 lbs. The pressure solenoid allows pressure in the hydraulic system. At the time the selector is taken out of park the solenoid is activated holding pressure. Current flows through the maintain pressure switch and operates a relay which controlles the high current flow to the hydraulic pump motor through it’s contacts. Pressure begins to build in the hydraulic system pushing the piston against the spring, releasing the parking brake. When pressure reaches 450 lbs the low pressure switch closes removing the 12 volts provided to the lamp. However, there is another 12 volt path to the lamp from the maintain pressure switch which keeps the lamp lit. Once pressure reaches 1600 lbs, the maintain pressure switch opens releasing the pump relay, shutting down the pump, and shutting off the park lamp. If pressure should fall below 1200 lbs, the pump will start back up to maintain the necessary pressure to keep the brake released and the lamp will light as long as the pump is running.

When the vehicle is put back into park or the ignition shut off, the auto apply switch is released, 12 volts is removed from the pressure valve solenoid dumping the hydraulic fluid back into the reservoir. As the pressure is released all of the switches return to their low pressure state.

I have a 1997 16,500 GVW Chevy chassis, and the service guide document supplied with the coach has a good description of the auto apply unit. I researched this information because I like to do my own maintenance and needed to know how it works so I could fix it if it broke.

Hope this might help someone.
Howard, (1-20-09) we must have the same manual. My auto park brake operates as designed but the dash lights either blinks or stays lit even though pressure is built up. Usually the dash light will flash while the pump is running then stay on after pump reaches pressure. I have replaced all switches, valve, relay and looked at the pump assembly. No relief in resolving the dash light issue. Any help would be appreciated. Al

Re: where brake cylinder fluid is Win 2-20-10  
I can tell you where mine is located. I have the same chassis and motor its a 1994. Directly behind the drivers side tire in the fender wall is an opening in the skirt and its the master cylinder is. The only way I can access it is to pull the tire. I have to do this because of the drop step for the drivers door above. Otherwise you might be abvle to turn wheel to the left and gain access.

Re: P30 auto park brake problems Andy 3-27-10  
Did you check to make sure the auto park brake was in the released position before you set the adjustment. These systems are known for failing thereby applying park brake while driving. This in turn burns up brake lining causing the brake system to not work. There is a hydraulic pump, valve and spring actuator assembly that applies the brake. The spring pack is connected to the cable and applies the brake until the pump comes on and applies hydraulic pressure to the hyd. cylinder that acts against the spring pack. The pump comes on when the shifter is moved from park position. Once it builds about 1000 psi to the hyd. cylinder the green pressure switch shuts the pump off and closes a solenoid valve holding pressure to the cylinder. When the switch goes bad the pump runs continuously until it fails. Parts are hard to find. GM truck dealers sometimes have them.
Hope this helps,
let me know your out come,
