I agree with Ted. The information has to be compiled by the type of brakes (through the floor, hanging, hanging adjustable, model year, etc.).
It must be determined if this issue is symptomatic of a brake type or isolated to specific Coaches.
Also, information provided by someone who has driven the different brake types back to back would perhaps be of benefit.
Ted, As we live relatively close, maybe we could meet somewhere for a dinner and each of us drive the other's Coach for an immediate comparison.
As I have driven my Coach only twice, I have no real knowledge of the problem and can only say I didn't notice a braking issue with it. In fact, I was pretty impressed that a 15 ton brick would stop that well (it stopped a whole lot better than my previous Gas Class A).
I will be taking delivery of it Tueday and plan to drive it 2 or 3 hundred miles for a "Shakedown". Now that I've heard so much about this, I'll be paying particular attention to it.
Getting back to the compilation of information; it may be best if someone not convinced they have a problem be supplied the data so a spreadsheet by model year, etc. be developed.
It has been my experience that better information can be categorized by someone of a relatively ignorant and non-emotional mindset. Regarding the ignorance issue; I am supremely, if not over-qualified
Should any of you wish to undertake this, send the information directly to me rather than clutter this forum. Make sure you include the VIN, type of Driving (Mountains, level, etc.) Model year, Model, type of brake (hanging, adjustable, etc.), any attempts at correction, if a Toad is normally present, it's weight, etc.
Assuming we all can open an MS Excel spreadsheet, I will periodically publish the data for those sending me their information.
If enough meaningful information can be garnered, WRV will find it more useful than independent isolated complaints.
Also, as everyone seems to have a great deal of respect for the opinions expressed by Engineer Mike, who I have been in contact with privately, perhaps he would agree to be involved with this as well.
Lastly, if we wish to do something like this, I believe it would be better to start a new thread dedicated to this topic in order to reduce the information to hard facts rather than the opinions expressed herein. Perhaps a title such as "Brake Data"?
