What! You have a German van without wheel chocks, I thought they were standard in Hymer's all our vans came with them.
Hope you are not going to Germany, legal requirement to use wheel chocks when parked on a slope for vehicles over 3.5t.
Yes we have a Fiat Hymer and it came with two chocks
And no it’s not for ferries it’s law in some counties to chock the wheels if parked on a slope on the roads that is.
In my experience air brakes use air pressure to release the brakes and will fail safe should there be a leak.Is that all vehicles over 3.5t or just those with air brakes, in case of a leak?

When I was in the fire service we had one particular appliance which, if it had been idle for a few hours, wouldn't release it's brakes until the engine had run for at least a minute or two ... never looked very good in the public eye when we had to sit in clouds of diesel smoke waiting to go.
