I just did a little research what an "Auto Park Brake" is. I live in the Charlotte area & may I suggest Tom Johnson's camping center next to the Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord.
Phone:(704) 455-1440 There may be a problem this late on a Saturday though. I have done a lot of business with them & they always seem to be professional.

This is another vote for Tom Johnson's. There is considerable skill in that shop.

I hope your not alone. Once you disconnect it, you need a set of wheel chocks, not the cheap plastic ones, heavy rubber type, 2 of them. Once you stop, have your help put the chocks against a tire while you hold your foot on the brake.

There is no parking paw, Park is just like neutral.

Never closed this out...sorry...got home ok...replaced rotten green switch all was well. After that had actuator redone just to be sure would be reliable...have gone through three rg switches in last 2000 miles...poor workmanship I guess.

Autopark, one of the dumbest inventions known to man. Have had 3 MH's with it and had problems with it on 2 of them. When I'm looking to buy this is a BIG negative against any coach with it...

Mine was removed, a parking pawl installed in the transmission and a new foot lever activated drum/shoe park brake installed.
