I'm guessing "exhaust brake," as all the diesel owners here love to talk about "How sweet it is!"

Honestly, it's pretty cool, though we simulate that on our gasser by downshifting on the downslope.

It is the exhaust brake button. But given the context, an argument could be made that it looks like a "deploy parachute" button....

Yup, exhaust brake button. Having pulled a larger AS in the mountains with what would be considered an undersized tow vehicle, then a 1/2 tonne, then a 3/4 tonne diesel, there's a reason why diesel owners love to talk about how great they are

Cool Chitina, AK

In the far reaches of Alaska, Chitina is the Copper Valley region. Came across this old Sovereign just parked so they can go fishing.

California, I8 just east of Tecate Divide. A Gray Dodge SUV pulling a highly polished maybe 20 57 ish Caravanner 13 panel with lots of windows streetside. You look beautiful, safe travels.
