Holiday Rambler Ambassador Console

How can I find information on the control panel console top on a 2002 Holiday Rambler Ambassador. My top was cracked in three or four places when I took possession of the motor home. I would like to know if I can cut it off forward of the brake knob and replace it with a stronger thicker material. In cutting it there, I would have only the brake knob shaft to deal with going through the new panel panel part.

Here is a supplier of replacement dash panels for Monaco.

You can try and leave just the park brake knob on the old part but from my experience the old panel becomes very brittle and it will probably fail over time. The park brake knob is probably the most stress due to having to press it ON/OFF with some force.

The knob part is the part I want to replace, jacwjames. Thanks for replying to my distress call. The top has cracks two ways from the knob and the end is broken as well. I'm not sure there is enough space for 1/2" plywood or any thing thicker than the original top material.

No easy way to repair that would look good without removing. If you are willing to remove panel you might be able to epoxy/laminate a piece of metal on the backside but not sure how the park brake valve attaches.

Sounds like you best option is to replace.
