Brake noise

Had to use my brakes pretty hard coming into Palmdale. We smelled burning rubber so I guess locked them up. After that the brakes started squealing when coming to a slow stop. Pretty loud now and driving me nuts. Is this because the shoes are glazed? Should I get them looked at?

Just got mine back from the shop with the same squealing brake issue. Once the shoes have been overheated they will squeal. It does not mean they have to be replaced but they will squeal and the only way to rid the problem is to replace them. In my case, I have 75% left so unless it really drives me nuts, I will live with it until it's time.

Stopping about 10 times HARD from about 45 mph can help with glazed brakes. Here's a link to more info: RV Tech Library - Burnishing Squeeling Brakes

Thanks, I will give it a try. As stated in the article, got nothing to loose. Will have to do this without the navigator for sure.

It worked for me and many of the school buses I used to deal with. Buses get lots of braking, at a gentle rate so not to harm kids. When the brakes got too noisy, using the strategy above (without passengers!) quieted them right down. Even if it doesn't help the brakes, you'll find out which drawers, cabinets, and closets need better packing or latches!

I too have pretty new shoes on the front ( I am assuming we are talking about the front brakes). I will give it a try on the way back home tomorrow. Thank you.
