    Most probably a transmission brake. Look on the back of the gearbox and you will see a brake drum. I dont know about you RV model but many of them are electrically actuated

    Have replied to your other duplicate post
    even if hydraulic / electrical operated there is usually a cable at the drum too, Just ask Rory he knows all about that crap set up:cry::Doh:
