98 Winnebago Adventurer brake noise

I just purchased our first motorhome. It's a 98 Winnebago Adventurer and both front brakes are squealing while we are driving at slow and highway speeds. I've taken it to the brake shop at both the local RV dealer and brake shop. Nobody seems to know why the brakes are making this nose. Does anyone have any ideas or is this normal?

Ohsirr, Typically the squealing is generated by brake dust and it could be a contaminant on the brake pads themselves. Couple that with irregular rotors you could get a brake squeal. The resolution of same is to get new pads and hope to be able to cut a few thousandths of an inch off the rotor and true up the surface.
