ABS Brake light came on. After driving about twenty minutes the brake pedal started going to the floor. I pulled over and made arrangements for towing to a RV Park approx 10 miles away. After about 2 hours, the tow truck arrived and after starting the motor home discovered that all the brake warning lights were out. I drove to the park with no incident and no lights came back on. Is it possible that the brakes just overheated and after cooling down things returned to normal. Should I take the coach into service or wait. Any discussion would be appreciated

Welcome Joey P. to irv2.
If your brakes got hot from heavy braking the brakes will go to the floor had a RVer last week traveling down hills and sharp curves hitting the brakes heavy, had no brakes when pulling into camp ground. Was fine when she left day of brake up, wasn't takeing out of overdrive and her speeds to high going down the hills she admits.
Told her to have checked out and maybe have fluid checked or changed.
Enjoy the forums and do post often.

Hmmm. Do you have the Workhorse chassis and if so, has the brake recall work ever been done? Overheating is one of the symptoms of the problem.

The ABS light indicates one type of problem (electronic in the antilock system) while the pedal going to the floor is another (hydraulic) problem. Usually the two are not related.

Yes, brakes can overheat and "boil" the brake fluid, which will result in no pedal. It fixes itself when it cools off (usually in 10 minutes or so), but the question remains why the brake or brakes overheated to begin with. Assuming you have the W22 Workhorse, it's brakes should easily handle severe braking quite easily. I'd get them checked before the same problem recurs when you really need brakes!
