Air brake knob

On our 40 ft Holiday Rambler the brake knob is on the console between the driver & the left wall of the beast. A old style wooden spring clothes pin would be a good fit over the exposed portion of the shaft. I would slide a piece of vinyl tubing over the center part of the clothes pin so it won't scratch up the finish.

I also usually dump the air out of the system so the "Spring Brakes" or so called "Emergency Brakes" are applied anyway, just as a back up.

You've gotten a wide range of ideas here, you just have to decide what works best for you!
