P-32 Brakes

I'll make this short.

On a 2002 Workhorse P-32 class A 33.5 foot motor-home with hydroboost brakes, does it take a real man to stop this motor home. Or could your wife or girlfriend drive and stop it.

Mine is a 2000, and 32 ft. on that same chassis. It stops just fine without any unusual pedal pressure needed. If yours doesn't, something is wrong.

Mine takes a bit of effort, more than I feel should be needed, but not so much that my wife could'nt drive it.

You could introduce your wife and girlfriend to each other and you'd probably never have to worry about either one driving it.

I had a '93 HR w/tag axle, and the brakes scared me a few times, to the point I was looking for anchors to throw out and holes in the floorboards to stick my feet out and drag them for extra stopping power. There was nothing wrong with them, they were just working with a coach that was at gross capacity most of the time.

FWIW, the DP's aren't like that at all.

01 P32

Mine require a fair amount of pressure to work the brakes.

It has been this way from new so I doubt there is a problem.

It is definitely different than any car I have driven.
