Roadmaster Invisibrake help needed!
I've had this Invisibrake on the same tow, Ford Edge for 3 1/2 years w/o any issues. Yesterday, major one! We're in the boonies of WV and using the Ford going to a small town grocery when the system applied enough brake pressure to smoke the front pads. I thought initially it was a transmission problem until one young man in the group that had formed around us at a gas station said, "it's your brakes, I can smell them." I quickly turned the vacuum gauge completely off and the brakes were released sans about ten thousand miles or more on the brand new pads and rotors! Called Roadmaster, tech said it was moisture in the plug on the Ford. I replaced the plug over a year and a half ago cause it was worn and loose from use. I'm afraid to attempt any repair for fear of locking the brakes. Sure would be nice to have the supplemental system going down these mountain grades. Anyone had this issue? If so what was your solution? Very thankful we were not pulling the toad!!
