I have a FREIGHTLINER...

I have a FREIGHTLINER RV chassis 2001. The parking brake light will not go out. The PB releases w air blow and it rolls downhill like on an entrance ramp to highway. Is it an indicator light? How does the system work? Spring parking brake system I presume

Mechanic's Assistant: What's the make/model/year of your truck? Engine type?

National RV TRADEWINDS 2001 w FREIGHTLINER rv chassis. Cat 300 turbo engine.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the truck mechanic to know before I connect you?

I am a retired USAF and airline pilot so talk on that systems level. We are on the road w a schedule
