5500 Duramax brake warning light/chime

We are in Hastings, NE for a motorcycle race in an RV equipped with a Duramax.

As we were backing into our spot, the brake warning light came on as well as the chimes.

Any idea what it could be? It appears that there is pressure on the air tank, and the master cylinder has plenty of fluid.

Welcome to the Forum!!!

Ya could be a number of things. Try unplugging the electrical sensor on the master cylinder. It measures the fluid level. Also, does the brake lights all work?
