Hello folks,

I just joined up, hope to make good use of this site for RVing and camping with the family, but first I have a problem I need some help with. We have a 1997 Georgie Boy Cruise Air, parked for the past couple of months, and now the Auto Park light is on and the vehicle won't move. I would greatly appreciate any insight on getting this issue resolved because Momma says she is ready for a vacation at the Smoky Mountain National Park and we aren't going anywhere until all is in working order.

Thanks,

Larry Stone

Depending on whether you have air brakes or hydraulic.

Make sure that your air compressor is pumping up the air system with air brakes. It wont move w/out air. Air pressure releases the brake.

If hydraulic brakes: Theres a standard emergency/parking brake cable.
The brake drum itself should be located at tail of transmission, with the cable attached to a lever. If the lever is stuck, tap with hammer lighlty to release. Have brake cable serviced.

Good luck, questions welcome. John of John n Sandy

Hi Larry! Welcome to IRV2! It's good to have you join the bunch! I can't help with your question but I bet you'll find the answer here somewhere! Good luck with keeping mama happy! The Smokey Mountains are our favorites. Started our life together there back in 1959 and have been back dozens of times and never get tired of them! God bless!

Hey Larry - Dan here....thought you were back in the sand box? Took me 10 minutes after my first post to have the 'handle" kick into the memory mode!

Truly, welcome indeed. If I can help C while you're deployed just hollar.
