You hate to see this but i guess the lesson learned is to always set the parking brake.

If the RV was in park with the engine off and parking brake on this would never have happened.

Parking brake on many diesel's is a pull knob that is often mounted on a horizontal surface next to the driver, adjacent to the transmission push buttons.

In my Tiffin - parking is done by putting the transmission in neutral and pulling up the parking knob. If parked on an incline, it is always quite easy for an animal sitting in the driver's seat to step on the parking knob, thus disengaging the brake - And, since the transmission is in neutral... down the hill you go...

Many people cut a section of PVC pipe or garden hose to length and then cut a slot so that it can slip under the knob and around it's shaft to prevent someone/thing from pushing the knob down.

So, YES, this is definitely possible!

The vehicle shown is a gas job. No air brakes on this vehicle. On your diesel, if you pump your air down by pumping your brakes, there is no way the brakes can release. They need roughly 50 pounds of air to release the spring brakes. If the air in the system is pumped down, there is no way the brakes will release unless the vehicle is started and the compressor builds the air pressure back up. This way rover cant possibly release the brakes.

I'm not too excited about launching a boat with my class A under any circumstances. Here in northern CA, our lake levels fluctuate so much that many of our launch ramps are pretty steep. It's enough of a challenge with my pickup.

If I did do so, in addition to the parking brake, I think I'd use wheel chocks.

It looks staged to me! Pretty convenient that they are filming a commercial for YOLOtek cameras!

Who would be foolish enough to stage something like that? The RV no doubt suffered much water damage and could easily have been lost entirely.
