Parking brake light problems

I'm having trouble with my parking break light on my 2000 country coach intrigue. The light is not coming on when applied (even though the brake is fully applied and the rv will not move). Since it fails to come on the slide-outs do not come in. Also the leveling will not work when this occurs. This problem is intermittent after putting the slide-out in by opening the appropriate solenoid and jump starting the hydronic motor. When we got home it worked fine and the light came on allowing everything to work fine. This has occurred on two separate occasions over the past four years. Any suggestions on what to do would be great on how to fix this problem.

What chassis is your RV? On a DP with air brakes, the switch that triggers the light is built in to the air valve you pull/push with the yellow diamond on it. On gas chassis, it also makes a difference for Workhorse or Ford. I wouldn't bypass the switch, replace, repair, or adjust switch so it works.
