pinkey,
Glad that you got it running. Sometimes after sitting for a while, the rotors have rust on them and the pads don't have a clean surface to grip to, the rust just flakes off. and this could be the reason that you have weak brakes. They should come back once you use them for a few stops. I don't remember if the P30 chassis has 4 wheel disks, or if there is drums on the rear, if drums, you will have to check the adjustment also.
Frank

Only one unregistered vehicle per property, does not matter car boat truck rv, only one, I'm waiting to register n get it inspected for a few more months then going to paint it bright caution cone orange ( should make neighbor extra happy lol) since it's a 30ft er it will b a whole lot of orange lol, but I'm also going to gut the inside n renovate her into a food truck, hopefully that will allow me to stop working 20 hr days 5 days a week n only ten he shifts on the weekends since I'm only one working in my family (wifey is stay at home mom with our 14 month old, while cooking up our second minion of doom lol)

Frank, I'm betting the brake fluid is bad since it's hydroscopic. ( absorbs water, witch makes slushy breaks) about 5%a year, and it had sat for min of 7 years probably closer to ten when I bought it

Sorry if it seems sacrilegious to convert an old rv into a food truck, but it's better than it sitting n continuing to rot, but if it makes you feel better once I get food truck business going I'm probably going to keep buying n renovating old rvs back to there former glory as a keep me bussy side project since it's not terribly expensive to do, besides about that time the minions of doom would be old enough to start enjoying camping and road trips

pikney,
You are right about changing the brake fluid, it should be done whenever it starts turning dark or green colored, usually 5 or 6 years.
