1996 Dutch Star Newmar - Parking Brake

Just wanted to see if anyone has ever had to adjust the parking break on these RV's and what the process was. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks, first rv and we are having a blast in it. Not planning on doing air brakes and it is on a p30 chassis, gas burner. The park break will not engage and when I put it in park, still wants to roll. The dealer we bought it from, has it right now and is repairing it. He has told me that it will take a sending unit and a switch. Which seems to go out on these. But being a older truck guy, I thought with the parking brake, it was tightening up the main line. Just wanted to check, since this is bigger than a truck or old car.
