Steer clear (get it!) of Camping World, not the best for chassis repair. Try this link:

RV Service Reviews

Should be several in your area, after all, it's not like you live in the wilds of Kentucky!

What chassis do you have? It must be either Chevy or Ford. I'd start with a Chevy or Ford Heavy Duty truck service center. I don't think Camping World does any chassis work. Be thankful for that.

Haha! No, I live in the big ol' city! I have used one of those repair shops before and actually forgot about em. I'll give them a call tomorrow. But from all my researching online I have a good feeling that I have a warped brake caliper. I don't think it's alignment because I can hear and feel the rig pitch to the drivers side every time I hear the noise.

My thought is that the rotor is hitting the brake pad and causing that pitch to the left. I can also feel a pulse in my brake pedal when that happens. I don't notice it at higher speed braking but notice it while breaking at low speed.

Now I just need to find a spot to park and jack up my rig and take a look!

Again, thanks for all replies.

OP's rig is a 1992 and can't find a shop to work on it. Possible case of "age discrimination?"

Did you get the brush off before or after you gave them the year of the coach? Just a shot in the dark. The shop I use just did a repair on an old coach which was brought in on a flatbed trailer. The bill is now more than the amount the owner paid for it. The shop has not been paid after several attempts to collect and it now sits on the lot and looks like the POS that it is. I wonder what the new policy will be by the shop owner when it comes to working on old MH's?

Yes I most definitely felt age discrimination today. Most places (even with RV repair RIGHT in the name of the shop) said "no, we only do alignment." Or, "no, we don't really do that kind of work, we just work on engines." So on and so forth.

Most places, as soon as they heard the year of my coach said, "Nope, sorry. We don't work on those".

It was a frustrating day. That coupled with a 10 month old screaming her head off from me driving all over town to different shops didn't help my sanity either. I have a friend with a nice long, flat driveway that I can park my rig and take a look for myself. I know that most repairs will be done by me on this thing so I might as well get into it while we still have our sticks and bricks for the next 2 months. I will update this thread in a few days when I get time to work on her.

With the age of your unit I would consider replacing both calipers and rotors so you know you have good brakes ready to go.

Any heavy duty truck repair shop should work on your MH. That link to service reviews should do the trick.

If I may, add replace brake line hoses at each wheel position while working on the brakes. I have seen where a brake line failed on the inside and would not allow the hydraulic pressure to release after using the brakes, causing this exact problem.
