This is for Thread #8 (Edgray)I have a 1997 36' Dolphin M.H. on a Chevy P-30 chassis with the 7000 454 engine.
The breaking system consist of a parking break which is connected to the drum on the drive shaft.
The Elect. break backs up the parking break.(because the M.H. is too heavy for the tranmission parking pin to hold it, there for it does not have one).
You can still use the parking break when you stop but when you put your shifting lever in park the Elect. break applys it self.
My breaks went out on me two times so I know that you can use the parking break if you have to slow down or even stop, the only way the Elect. break will work is if you stop and put the shiffter lever in park.
I must of replaced at least a half of the parts one time or another in the Elect. Break set up.
All in all it a great breaking system when it works.
