I parked Holiday Rambler 2004 with Workhorse Ch. 3 weeks ago in the driveway. It started and warmed up but will not release the Auto-park brake. It does go into gear but will not move.
Brake fluid and trans. fluid fine. Any suggestions would be helpful. I don't want to have it towed and have turn out to be a 2$ relay.

bb86...
Welcome to iRV2! I hope you come on down to the Monaco Forum and join in the fun there also. We have some great members there who will also help out with other questions...and many times with our own quirky sense of humor! I can also add some "Monaco Karma" under your display name on the left...just say "karma please" and it will be done.

You may also want to introduce yourself at the New Member Check-In forum.

Again...welcome to iRV2. We hope you visit & post often.

Glad to have you here on iRV2.

We will short cut this so it will appear in the WH chassis forum for some additional exposure. Some of the WH owners really have a lot of technical savvy.

Bill, welcome to iRV2.com. We are glad to have you join us here and we look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. When you say that you checked the brake fluid; did you also check the Auto Park Brake fluid reservoir in the middle of the coach under the floor? How much of an angle is the driveway and is the coach parked nose or rear down? Let us know and we will try to help.

Bill - - If you will send me a Private Message with your email address, we'll get you "connected" with the AutoPark Library. For starters, we will have to determine whether you have a J71, or a J72 version of the auto apply parking brake.

It seems that oldusedbear has volunteered his services and will come to your rescue, so you're in the best of hands now, but I'm curious as to whether or not you have fluid in your pump reservoir, which is probably under the hood and in front of the radiator on the drivers side with the 2004 model. If the fluid is gone, there's a pretty common reason as to why ...and our mentor here will work with you on this, so trust whatever he tells you.
