Brake Broke

I generally use the manual parking brake when parking the Rolling Stone, particularly when I'm sleeping in the RV. As with every other vehicle I've ever driven, there is a warning light on the dashboard when the parking brake is engaged. A couple of mornings ago, when I disengaged the brake, the light wouldn't go out. I gingerly did some testing, and concluded that the brake is indeed releasing; however, the light will not go out. I spoke to Lisa about it, and she says she thinks that's an easy fix, especially if it works the way it does in the Big Orange Van, which she thinks is likely given the way Ford built its vans in the 1970s and 1980s. So I'm trying to not worry about it, although it's hard to ignore a red warning light on the instrument panel.
