Winnebago has parts books on line.

I have heard they are available as a generic brake part from NAPA for about $25, unfortunately I don't have the part number off hand.

I purchased those 2 but every system is telling me they wont fit so now im about to purchase some for $80 on amazon acdelco 171-772 . My autopark has to get fixed and i want to be prepared with brake shoes in case they need to be replaced.

I have a 1995 fleetwood southwind 33' I wish i knew the exact sizing i need

Interesting that a brake shoe that never has to stop a moving vehicle would need replacing. I guess it could develop a stress crack. I had a P30 in the 90’s and at the MV inspection they applied the emergency brake pedal. I had never used it and apparently the cable had corroded and it froze locking the drive shaft (auto park) brake. I could move it to my mechanic’s shop, but I did need new shoes after I got there!

Yeah I'm guessing it's always the autopark being stuck that makes everyone replace, which is currently my problem. I ended up driving with it not knowing it was stuck on.

When that green switch leaks the brakes are applied, and when it lets go at 60 mpg it can be quite unnerving. Then you have to drive off the hiway to get to a safe place to disengage the brake. It is only two small shoes applying pressure to stop a 16,000 lb MH vs 8 shoes or pads in a panic stop using your regular brakes. After going through 3 green switch failures I can see how these brake shoes can wear thin.

Gjac, what did it do when it let go at 60 mph? Were you able to drive it to a safe place to work on it? I am asking because I have a 2001 with auto park and have never had trouble with it but I know it can cause big problems and I would like to know what to expect if it fails. I do keep a spare green switch and watch the fluid level pretty closely.

I was able to drive it off the hiway to a store parking lot. I then had to adjust the parking brake off from underneath the MH. Twice I was able to just replace the green switch and be on my way after adding some transmission fluid to the reservoir. The auto park system can be problematic, Carry the grey switch with you also. That went on me once, it shows the auto park is on when it is not.
