Brakes fading on Workhorse chassis

I have a 2006 Rvision Trail-aire MH with aprox. 15000 miles on it we don't use it much but when we do we don't want to get killed so, 2 yrs ago I took it into town to have generator carb worked on and when I arrived I could smell the brakes so I had them checked out also, and had them replaced, this week we just returned from a week to a casino and the brakes are locking up and burning again, I see that there was a recall on the W22 chasis but not on the p32 chasis, which I am suppose to have, has anyone else experienced any issues with their workhorse brakes failing? I have a appt. tue. to take mine to a workhorse dealer to have brake correction performed for the 2nd time. thanks in advance J. H. Messer

P-32 should have disk brakes on front and rears, mine does with antilocks

My 1999 P32 Damon is same...discs all around, Bosch calipers.

If I have multiple stops in traffic my front brakes will heat badly...flex lines have been replaced. When stuck in traffic I move slowly to keep from using brakes to make complete stops...rumors that calipers have non-metallic pistons as a cause for sticking. Otherwise normal driving I have cool brakes.

Please come back WINGBIRD and let us know what all happens.

I would think your calipers are dragging and not releasing all the way causing your brake pads to overheat. We use high temp grease on all surfaces that slide to help prevent this from happening. If your caliper pistons are dragging they will have to be replaced.

If the 6th vin# character is a "3" or a "5", you have a P32, assuming it is a Workhorse chassis. The P32 was not recalled for the faulty Bosch calipers. If your calipers are dragging, I suggest you have the pin slides cleaned and lubed, and replace the rubber hoses leading to the calipers, as those are about all that you can do short of replacing the entire caliper.

If you have a "6" in the sixth position, you have a W series that was recalled.

Another thing to look at is the pivot on the brake linkage. If not lubed propely(and it sedom is) the pedal some times will not return all the way and cause this problem.

On level ground lift the front wheels off the ground and spin the wheels by hand. With the motor running, press the brake pedal and release. Rotate wheels again. If they don't want to turn, crack the bleeder, if the wheels now turn then your rubber brake hose has collapsed. A known problem.

thanks for the quick replys, I will be taking it into the workhorse dealer Tue. and have them go thru the system, and I will post as to what they believe is the cause, but for it to happen twice in a 2 year period with vary few miles has me a little concerned for my safety as well as others out there, and I believe the manufacturer should have the same concerns as I do. Again thanks J. H. Messer
