Winnebago Parking Brake Switch

2000 Winnegago Adventurer 35U

My 2 slide outs are extended jacks dont go down the "Not in Park/Brake" stays on no matter where the pedal is.
HWH and I are 99% sure the swich is bad ... that is the easy part

I absolutly can not see the switch used mirrors even a flexable scope used to check inside walls...I also took pictures wih my Camera. I have tried every body position and spent hours....

I can not find it (JustAnswer hasn't Answered my paid for query as they are usually do with in hours) Winnebago says "bring it to a dealer"...Be interesting driving 50 miles with both slide outs extended

can any one point me in the direction of getting direction ?

on my moho, the pb switch is a small white plastic item located on the inboard side of the parking brake mechanism under the dash near its fwd end. there is a wire that attaches to it that may have come off. i can see my switch from the right angle with the dash flipped up. i have heard that there is an adjustment on the switch. i had a lot of trouble with the wire connection coming off until i quit releasing the foot operated parking brake with a bang. i keep my foot on the pedal so that the release is ''soft'' now.
schucks auto supply has a parts breakdown picture of the switch and can order one for about $5.

I hate to admit this, but when that happened to me my DW pointed to the key master shut off and asked, "Could that be the problem?" The master switch was turned off and gives the same "park brake not set" indicator.

Of course I told her "NO," and waited until she turned her head and turned it back on.

(RVM-14) It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Hi Cookie 129....unfortunatly my 2000 doesnot have the auto system so the GREAT document would be a major asset for the no anutomatic replacement of the parking brake switch

you are welcome.
make sure that the wire is still attached to the switch. if it is not, the dash light will stay on and the hwh system will not work.
i can reach my switch by opening the drivers door and kinda reaching under the dash from outside. i used a mirror last time to reattach the switch wire.
you can jumper the switch wire to ground, taking it out of the circuit for troubleshooting purposes. if the wire comes off of my switch again, i will probably jumper it to ground permanently. it is definitely a pita to reach.
