Which chassis?

My '94 Bounder with Freightliner chassis would roll when in park, didn't have air brakes. What it had was a friction brake wrapped around the drive shaft. Hydraulically actuated.

Turned out it was mis-adjusted. Crawled underneath, discovered that and readjusted it so the brake shoes actually contacted the brake drum. Problem solved.

Journey

Our DP. with a freight liner chassis, and a CAT Engine, is quiet at the tailpipe.
Inside you can't hear the engine, just a kind of hum.

One time we had a C Class with the 6 cyl. Detroit Diesel in the front.
It was as quiet as a gasser after it warmed up, and the fan shutdown.
They don't have to be noisy like some Fords, and most Dodges.

If this is a gas chassis with an automatic transmission it is possible that either the linkage is enough out of adjustment so as to not engage the parking pall in the transmission, or said pall is broken. It is not uncommon for a rig to be parked on a hill without proper emergency brake and the weight of the coach comes to fully bear on the parking pall in the trans - it can break.

If it's a diesel coach then it sounds more like an improper functioning emergency brake.

Check it out, or have a competent mechanic look at it. It sounds unsafe as is.
And good luck!

Glad to hear you solved the problem.
Haven't heard about that problem before.
