W20 chassis parking brake clevis pin lubrication

I did some basic maintenance today to my W20 chassis motorhome, including getting the grease gun out and hitting all the zero fittings.

On the Workhorse chassis 'lubrication points' diagram, #6 is the Parking Brake Clevis Pin. I guess because of the zero fittings on the driveline, I aways thought that the parking brake clevis pin had a zerk too, but just never found it. Today, I took a really good look under there and have come to the conclusion that maybe the lubrication point is only a reference to needing lubrication, such as spraying lithium grease or something else, and there is no zero.

Could someone clarify what a 'parking brake clevis pin' is and does, what it looks like, and what kind of lubrication is required? I meant to take a few pictures while under the chassis, but forgot. Did a Google image search so I could post a picture for reference, but didn't find anything that looked similar.

Thank you for helping out someone like me that probably shouldn't be allowed around a grease gun and socket sets, but I like to do some of the easier stuff anyway. -RT

The clevis is the name of the adjustable connection devise used connect the parking brake cable to the lever on the parking brake drum. The clevis pin connects the clevis to the lever. A little lube oil from a squirt can is really all that is required to lube this point.

Thank you dieselclacker for the information. I always thought I was supposed to be looking for a zerk, but taking a good look around with a flashlight helped me realize that I thought I was on the wrong path.

Thank you for the clarification and I now don't have to worry that I'm 'skipping' something by not finding that elusive, non-existent zerk. -RT
