Can anyone out there give me a hint about the brakes on my new-to-me 1983 Pace Arrow?
The manual talks about brake pedals going to the floor, that these brakes are different somehow and that it's alright? That kind of behaviour doesn't make sense to me. Breaks should be firm. When I drove it off the lot, the brakes went almost to the floor, but the MH did stop. So, I drove it twenty miles home and although the pedal went almost to the floor at each stop, it DID stop. (Never tried any hard, panic stops) About halfway home, the red brake light on the dash came on and stayed on. Backed into my spot. Tried the brakes while sitting two days later, the light was off and I had a bit more pedal. (The result of backing self-adjusting brakes?) My first guess is brake fluid level. I found the master cylinder by taking off the doghouse lid and searching with a flashlight but there's no way to get to it. Is there a panel under the rug for access before I go ripping up my carpet?
In short, HELP! Once I figure this out (and get the generator to start), we're ready for the open road, and we really want to go!
p.s. Many thanks to the person on this site with the hints on changing the alt. belt from the top. Very easy.
