Default Parking brake

Guys I can’t seem to find a definite answer to this. I have a 1980 BLuebird Motor home. I have an air leak but I have to park my bus on an incline. Does the parking brake still work if the air leaks off?

Yes,if your brakes are adjusted properly you should be fine parking on a slope.
I would still chock the wheels,safety first.
Also,i suggest you read all about air brakes,the DOT manual is really good for you.
Since you don't seem to have a working knowledge of air brake systems.
Heck,i think everyone here should reread it,it will never hurt.

Here is a good read to learn about air brakes.

Oh and don't 100% rely on the auto-slack adjusters. Once a year you should be checking your brake adjustment.
