They are all troublesome. Only difference between those who have had no problems is and those who will is time.

They are all fixable and serviceable. Mine has had problems since I bought it 3 years ago but the problems can be repaired if your like-minded.

Diagnostics are key. Otherwise you just throw parts at it. Mine has had the main cable replaced plus the shoes and cylinder.

This weekend I hope to replace the hydraulic system with a linear actuator similar to the other thread by Jerry Peck.

Wish me luck

Go here and learn. AutoPark parking brake system help, troubleshooting, and repair. The Old Used Bear (Roger Haag) knows more about these systems than anyone else, including most repair shops. He has helped many RVers diagnose and fix their auto park systems. He now repairs leaking autopark cylinders (make sure that yours is not leaking): he did mine and his service was great.

I suggest that you replace the switches and do so every three years or so. Amazon has them for the best prices. You also need to know how to replace them (5 mins work) and keep extras in your rig.
