brakes

Well whoever told me Xtra Ride wouldn't cover brakes was right. I had a major problem first time I had to put my brakes on hard. Started pulling to right. Towed in waited 3 weeks for appointment and found out that I was sold an RV winnebago adventurer that had a recall on the brakes at the time I bought it from Blue Dog Rv in Hayden Idaho. It cost me $2352 to completely replace my brake system. We could have been killed or killed someone else. There were several red flags. I now have a completely new system. I hadn't planned on spending that kind of money but they took pics of everything and I have the parts. I am going to try to get some reimbursement from the dealer if not the BBB will be notified.

I don't see the dealer reimbursing you unless they get reimbursed. I would go to the chassis or originating recall manufacturer.

Maybe a moderator will move this to the Workhorse Chassis forum. Some of the ex WH ambassadors should be able to offer good advice.

I believe I have read there that the selling dealer is responsible for clearing open recalls before selling the RV.

Yes that would be good because one of the problems was the calipers were not releasing properly cause heat build up melting the sensors. That was what the recall was about.

The Bosch brake recall was for ALL Workhorse W20-22 series chassis and I can check to see if yours was done-just need the last 8 digits of chassis vin #.

If your Workhorse is a P32 chassis, then you are on your own.

New but all the other damage was done by then to the tune of $2300.

Brake Recall

I had the same problem. There is no law on the books about selling an RV with recalls that have not been done. In my case, Workhorse would not do anything except pay for the new calipers,fluid and the labor to install. My rotors were not cracked, just glazed over. Since then, I have found out that I should have just had the new calipers installed and that is all. The service center said that I needed new rotors. I learned an expensive lesson but at least I now have all new brakes.
After all of this, I did talk to the Workhorse district manager. He said most people in my situation need to just replace the calipers, fluid and drive off.
