E-Brake operation on a 2000 Newmar Dutchstar

I've read the posts about many E-Brakes and most of them discuss on and off. We have a 2000 Newmar Dutchstar and to my knowledge it is merely a pedal for our E-Brake, no on/off switch. Can anyone enlighten me on how to operate our E-Brake??

Thanks,
John and Annette

As I remember (since we traded the '02 DSDP off in 2002) the FL chassis/CAT 3126 had a switch on the dash. Just on or off as per normal exhaust brake.

I am still confused, at first I was thinking emergency brake, duh on my part. I have had three Spartans and all of them had an on off switch, no pedal, 1999,2005,2008. On the switch I just turned it on when I wanted extra braking, some drive with it on all the time. I found it to be too jerky with it downshifting every time I let of the accelerator pedal. There are many threads with many opinions. Someone should be along that has a pedal to help you more.
