Need exhaust brake info

I recently bought a 1996 CC Intrigue with a cummins 8.3 300 HP on a Gillig chassis. The exhaust brake works fine in the 2nd or low setting but not in the high setting. What type of brake does this coach use? I looked for a valve in the exhaust and found nothing. need help! BB.

BB I have a year older coach with a similar setup.

I have a single toggle switch on the left driver's side panel. That switch is either on or off. Forward is on, rearward is off. I think the light changes color when switched on, but do not remember. There are not two settings for this brake.

Look up near your turbo and you should see the exhaust brake cylinder that controls the butterfly valve in the exhaust piping. You will need to lubricate the pivot points here occasionally with high temp lube.

My brake is a Pak Brake exhaust brake.

The exhaust brake when turned on will function between 30 and 60 mph.

Go to the Pak Brake website for instructions.

Exhaust brake working!

My exhaust brake is working on both settings, high and low. the low setting always worked, but the high was not always working. The on/off on the cruise control seems to be tied into the the high setting. With the cruise control off everything works fine, cruise control on I only have low on the exhaust brake. BB.
