2000 Holiday Rambler Endeavor Brake's

I recently test drove and was told that the throw on the brake petal to stop is very short when stopping.
How much petal are you supposed to have when stopping.

I haven’t measured but the brakes start to apply almost instantly when i just start to press the pedal. And full actuation id guess is about 2 inches of travel or so. And I recently adjusted all my slack adjusters to be set properly.

The Endeavor came in both diesel and gasoline versions in this year, and the braking systems are very different. What model is yours?

The diesel brakes use a “slack adjuster” mechanism to maintain the proper working clearance between the brake shoes and drums. They can become “sticky” due to corrosion, and no longer make automatic adjustments as you drive. It’s not uncommon for people to make manual adjustments instead of fixing the underlying corrosion problem, leading to improper clearance at one or more wheels, and poor brake performance. Any truck shop can inspect, lubricate and adjust the brakes. It is a simple job that takes about an hour if no parts need replacement.

The adjusters should also be greased as part of your chassis lubrication to help prevent any corrosion.

Even though they are “automatic” they still need to be manually checked periodically that they are working properly. A symptom of improper adjustment is less braking power when u hit the brakes. There is an arm that needs to be at 90degrees when the pad contacts the drum for max braking force. And a measurement of arm travel at each wheel. I do not believe this would affect brake pedal travel much but it will cause more delay in the brakes applying once you hit the pedal and less stopping power.
