Yellow emergency brake wires

I have had a few times when drawer bins Jacks, etc didn't work and now find that the cause could be a loose wire connected at the parking brake..I would like to check the wires for tightness but cannot see the terminals.. any ideas? thank you. Mel

Mel- are you talking about the wires connected to the Push/Pull park brake device on the dash?

Took the rig to Redlands RV and Truck and they found the problem which was a loose wire on the yellow brake device on the dash, if you have intermittent times when you pull the yellow brake and can't do jacks or slides or bins check for a lose connection...thanks Redlands.. good job.. Mel

Does your manual if you have one call this a park brake or emergency brake?

Mel just curious since no one was able to help you on how to get to those connections on parking brake switch. How did Redlands do it.
