Welcome to IRV2! Don't feel bad about a older rig-ours is a 1987 Rockwood.
What chassis do you have? You may want to hang out in the vintage group here.

If you have a GM p30 chassis your brake master cylinder is on the frame behind the left front tire, and the power brakes are powered by the power steering pump.

ours has a ford 460 so it must be a ford chassis, I'm guessing. the manual shows no info about anything other than coach features.i've taken off the motor cover and crawled under the front end, and can't see a brake reservoir. the reason I,m so interested is on our way home from the dealer, we stopped for gas. the rig smelled hot(that big semi truck smell) and although the brakes seemed to work alright. they were definitely more sluggish than my f250 diesel daily driver.maybe I just need to get used to it(it is a little heavier rig--ha,ha).maybe it's normal after a 30 mile drive on freeway and country roads?

we,ve only camped out in the driveway, but intend on doing a couple real short local trips first until we know what we are doing and how the rig is performing.

thanks for your help
