Years ago, I remember my grandfather having a oh-chit switch on a motor home that would lockup all the brakes. No they weren't air brakes. Is there anything like this for our trucks?
i know that some of the guys put this thing called a MICRO LOCK on there jeeps
you apply the brakes with the foot peddle & while holding the peddle down you flip the lever up & it keeps all four brake applied.
or you could tap in a LINE LOCK like we use for drag racing, generally it just locks thefront brakes. again you apply the brake peddle & while holing them down you turn on a switch to keep them locked.
