Help, Actibrake Disc Brake Acuator stuck

This isn't the place to post this problem, but hope someone can help quickly. Oor 2007 A/S brake are locked and the pump ruunining continuously. How can the brakes be disengaged? I've tried pulling, backing and still locked. Manual gives no info how to disengage. Need help. Neil

CP Visitors

Jill and Neil got here last night on their way to visit Mesa Verde. And what lovey visiters they are too. I was already on the forums and had Neil jump on to ask for help, hence the aka. He is actually WhiteyFord.

This is their maiden voyage with "Alice" and these brave souls have been out 5 weeks! Last night was their first boondocking experience, which I was thrilled to provide.

What a scare they had when the brake actuator would not disengage. Apparently the pin got pulled out by accident. 3 heads are better than one! Heading up to the park now and will spend one more night with me. I love it!

Thanks to all who read the post.

It's good to see newcomers to the Airstream Life settle in so fast and so well.

Suzanne

In the future. The breakawy line in likely chaffing with the frame. You have to physically disconnect the battery. Ground first.
