, Gary! Depending on brand of transmission on your Oshkosh chassis, your RV may not have a parking pawl, the transmission shifts to neutral and a drum brake engages for the "Park" position. I don't know what transmission your chassis has but hopefully somebody who has an Oshkosh will chime in.

If you have one of these systems, it obviously needs fixing/adjusting. IIRC, the same drum brake functions as the parking brake, so even if you had it set that may not have helped!
