Angry 2008 38ft Safari Simba by Monaco Fred Chassis Alison engine

Freightliner fixed 2007 Simba safari parking brake mmalfunction and continued with the same design but didnt tell their customers but instead waited in the event something happened then made a retrofit for 2008 Safari simba 38 ft front end diesel chassis fred. fields customer can pay 7900.because they knew it was complicated to fix the parking brake on the custom chassis ail on the parking btake but still built it.
For those of you who have helped me with the 2008 simba Safari 38ft front end diesel on a Fred Freightliner BAD NEWS, I need help.

Freightliner has everything tied up in their Chassis parking Brake system so that the McCoys Freightliner mechanics are unable to find and correct the problem with my locked parking brake and find the blocked hydraulic fluid.
Freightliner
Custom chassis has designed a
Retro fit for our parking brake.
because the Freightliner company knew and designed the parking brake system so that no one would be able to trouble shoot and repair it when it malfunctions. Thus costing RV owners like myself over 7900.00.

Please call Freightliner
Ask for RV customs Chassis dept and complain for me, it should not be that difficult to problem solve and replace an 219,000 RV parking brake. That had to design a retrofit because they knew it was going to be a problem. This happened to the 2907 Simba Safaris you would think they learned to fix the problem before it was built....

I can't sleep! Freightliner knowing there's a problem with their parking brake and how it's tied up with the hydraulic fluid throughout the Fred Chassis and difficult for the Freighliner mechanic to troubleshoot why the parking brake will not engage. Freightliner cannot notify the owners to bring it on in Freightliner made a retrofit but customer pays $8000.00....

I don't know your brake system at all, but, my Dad had a garbage business 60 years ago and his trucks were hydraulic brake units. He installed a lever activated brake that would apply pressure to the hydraulic brake system and stop the truck. Could you remove the system you have and and use something like that? The original brake system was not affected and still functioned normally.




Just an fyi

I remember the lever to lock the brakes.
They were used on old truck cranes, we had. LineLock was the brand, I think.

They worked to lock the brakes, after you stepped on the pedal. They were only for temporary holding because if there was even a slight leak, the brakes released.

You should never depend on hydraulics to hold or lift something.
