I am happy to report that my 01 Dynasty 40' ran like a top on our recent trip from Arizona to Oregon and back...last time out, I had major engine failure - right after I bought it!
But, I did have one brake issue...when I stop normally, the brake system is fine. Coming down an off-ramp or applying the brakes hard, I get a heavy pulsation....I know my coach has ABS, but this, in my opinion, is beyond normal ABS...any ideas????

Sure sounds like an out of round brake drum or rotor.
