THAT'S why you diesel pushers let your engines idle so long! I thought you were just wasting fuel. Learn something new everyday.

And Mel probably knows this ...? Or not. But that's my guess. And if the air was bled out by pumping the brake (or leak) the emergency brake pops on. Then brining them back up can take a little bit of time. Long enough that the panic mode can kick in before it's done.

I called her. She will check it when she gets back to the coach. Fingers crossed.

Bravo, sir Papaw! That's the way it has been for many years for us. One year I got us a chainsaw for Christmas, and still trusted her with handling the control lever on the wood splitter. After that, all of our gifts were vacations.

Yep I agree with Steve, the air pressure needs to be a minimum of 90psi for the brakes to work properly, also make sure you have enough rpms going to activate the sensors in the transmission to shift

Cheers !!!!

I'm soooo glad I bought a gasser! I understand the basic principles like where to put the gas in and which way to turn the key. To drive a DP you gotta learn a whole new set of rules.

Mel, I hope it is just a patience issue and Murphy will be ok to limp back to Phoenix. If I remember correctly it's mostly downhill from Prescott. Remember this all just character building BS.

Now Mel, you listen to them folk 'cause I'm thinkin' the same thing.

BTW, what do your gauges say on the dash? One of the periodic tests diesel owners with air brakes should do is to shut down the motor, turn the key back on, and gently pump the brakes several times. When the air drops between 60-65 the low air alarm should come on, and at some point as stated the parking brake button will pop out.

Start the engine and watch the gauges. They should slowly start to rise. If they don't then there is most likely an air leak (kind of big) or the air pump is not working. A big air leak could be heard standing outside walking around the coach.
