Brakes

I have a 1999 Holiday Rambler (gas) and was wandering if anyone has had issues with front brakes sticking and if so, what fixed it? Im taking it in this week to get it looked at. Hopefully its not a major brake job. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Your calipers will need to be replaced. They are sticking internally from corrosion. Chances are like most of us, you've never had your brake fluid flushed and replaced. Brake fluid is hydroscopic meaning it attracts and retains moisture. This moisture caused your calipers to corrode and its pistons to stick in place, dragging the brake, over heating the rotors. It's a chain reaction that if not caught and fixed in time, can be very dangerous, very costly.
Sounds like you're getting it fixed just in time.

Good luck
