parking brake

We have a 1998 Chevy motorhome (pace Arrow) with a workhorse chassis. There is one brake resevoir on the left side near the wheel, and another resevoir mid chassis. Is the latter for the park brake(drum)?

I believe that is either a p-30 or p-32 chassis I can't remember I would just follow the lines. I believe you even have a fuel filter mounted on the frame rail. It been a quite a few years since I've crawled under the p-30 I had.

You probably have a Chev built chassis as Workhorse bought the P32 late 1999.

The second reservoir is the "AP" system. Located inside rail curbside in a stell box with cover containing all of the goodies. You do not mention any concerns, also do you have yellow button on your dash or a mechanical Park brake?.

I am doing this for my guy, and I type better than I understand these things. He is going to try to follow those lines again. There are two of us with nearly the same units. They have discussed this subject to death before I suggested I might be able to ask on a forum. I will send them under once more, and I do thank you. Just because I am now curious, could it be that the resevoir they are so interested in is for the parking brake?

The mid-body with the screw on top is the Auto park brake. The one under the driver with the spring clamp is the master cylinder.

Thank you. With your help they have both crawled around and found it all. Now we can move on to another question. They talk to death every wire!!!! Thanks again. We do have a related problem, but I have to understand it before I can explain it to anybody.
