?? 74637 does not show the electric brake? I was looking for a relay for the brake. Ifit has a relay, the relay can be bad, if it sticks, it would draw battery down. But in the wiring shown there is no relay shown and no electric brake!

Brake is released by the travel arms, when they are pushed out. Brake has to have 12 volts to isengage.
