Coach brake noise

need help with a noise that i hear when i step on the brakes in the coach. when i step on the brakes with the engine off it sounds like a fan is running until i let off (best way to describe it). Is that normal or should i have it checked? have to step pretty hard to stop the coach when driving too. (first coach so may be normal) thanks

Maybe you could give us a hint of what you're working with. Is it gas or diesel? Is it air or hydraulic brakes?

The ABS brake pump has a back up system. Stepping on the brake pedal with the ignition circuit off activates a pump. This is normal operation.

If it is air brakes and it is hard to stop you need to get your slack adjusters set up. The noise you hear is probably like said ABS.
