Journey 36DL brakes lock
We have had our pusher 2002 Journey 36DL for 4 years. My issue appears to happen if we leave her sit for longer periods (say 1 month for reference). I will present the scenerio below.
We arrive at our destination rv park and set up camp with air brakes set. After a month, we break camp and are ready to go. We put our trusty Allison transmission in forward (#6) and accelerate - no go forward. So back to neutral and back to forward -no go again even at full acceleration. The first time this happened, in desperation, I put her in reverse and accelerated and SNAP, we jumped back pretty good. Back to forward, we moved out just as we should. (it appears as if the brakes take a set when brakes are set and air goes down).
So, the solution is to reverse first to release the "set" of the brakes. The problem is that we park her in the spring in a building that is 39' long and there is little space at the rear of the building with the door closed. Reversing is hazardous to our Journey as there is only about 8" clearance.
So, the question is "how do we keep the air brakes from going into lock condition"?
