P30 Auto Park System
Hello fellow RV'ers,
I've recently just purchased my first used A class RV, and have now experienced my first major problem. My Auto Park system was taking longer than it should to disengage the braking system, so after speaking with my neighbor he check and found the reservoir. Assuming that it was a braking system, he added brake fluid to the system. About 3 weeks later, I had the same problem, however the AP system would not disengage the brakes. I then checked underneath the RV and discovered a puddle forming under the pump area. After looking online, I believe it's the actuator, as that is where the stream of fluid appears to be coming from. There appears to be a shaft looking item going into the center of the actuator. It appears to be leaking where both of these items connect at the bottom. Does the actuator need to be rebuilt, or is there an o-ring I can buy to fix it? Would the brake fluid damages any internal gaskets? Currently my RV is sitting half way down my driveway and I did have my first camping trip planned. If I do need to replace the actuator, I know I can't get a rebuild in 3 days, so is there a way to disengage the system so I can at least get it to the campground and block the wheels to stop it from rolling until I get it fixed? I do have a neighbor who is a mechanic, but is not very familiar with RV's, so he is still looking into how to free up the system as well. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
