On most everything I have had with air brakes, the knob took quite a bit of pressure to push when air was built up. I don't think my 75lb golden-doodle could do it unless she could get her back against something, not weight alone.
To me the story sounds like drive made a mistake, can't blame it on the kids.
The dog ate my homework ever fly for you?

Well, stunt or not, as the video shows, someone (or something) put the RV in reverse while he was hooking up the boat.

Insurance scam, you need to have the ignition key on,your foot on the brake then shift the lever. Iíve had smart dogs before but none that could operate the brake on my motorhome. Locking the doors from the inside? Well thatís another story.

When I launched my bass boat solo, I always set the parking brake, turned off the engine, and set a chock under a front wheel. I've watched
other people's trucks take a swim and my truck didn't have a swim suite!

My dogs have also locked me out one or twice. I don't leave the key inside with the dogs in there.

This whole story sounds fishy to me.

I think the driver screwed up. He was pulling out. All he had to do is hit the brakes and put it back in drive.
He is just blaming the dog or it is a settup.
