Atwood level Jacks Parking brake

Good morning,
I have 2005 Expedition with Atwood level Jacks.
The controller turns on, but the lights say the Parking Brake isn't set.
Anyone know where in the miles of harnesses they get the parking brake signal?

First guess would be behind the parking brake control in the dash. They mount pressure switchs back there all of the time.

Atwood power control module has two very small connectors that are subject to corrosion. If I remember correctly, the 4 pin connector has the brake signal. Possibly you can disconnect and reconnect to clean the corrosion. Be careful the pins are wire wrap size and can be easily broken. Parts are no longer available. I got so tired of repairing ours, we now have HWH. Should have switched at first failure.

Nothing wrong with Atwood Levelegs IF you be gentle. I miss the HWH Jack's on my prior rig but I have survived 6 years and 60k miles with my Atwood jacks.

switch at top of brake pedal

Mine had an issue recognizing the parking brake was engaged. Turned out the switch at the top of the pedal had come just a bit loose.
Repositioned it, tightened it up, has been fine ever since.
