Brake lights

I have looked for a wiring print for my chassis with no luck, has anyone turned off or disconnected thier brake light so it does not come on when using their exhaust brake? And if so can you tell me how you did it. Thank you in advance.

4 mile grade on the interstate holding 65 miles per hour with the exhaust brake but not slowing down below 65 mph and my brake lights are on for 4 miles. I don't want them on till I use my brakes and I am loosing speed to stop.

Thanks 007 for the info. nothing in there help me though so I called spartan up. Told what model I had and he said "passanger side,inverter compartment behind rear wheel, 2 - 6" fuse blocks, front one, the mini fuse with the arrow on it (diode) pull it and brake light won't work with exhaust brake anymore. The gentleman really knew his stuff..... thanks again

I was told it was a 'safety feature' but now that you say it is a fuse that can be pulled, when I get our coach home from storage this week, I will start looking for it.
