Brake system flush

Yesterday I took my '05 Winnebago Aspect in to have the brake system flushed and new fluid put in. After reading posts here and elsewhere about fluid going bad and causing problems, especially with the Ford e450 chassis' I decided it would be a good investment, especially after 67,000 miles.
When I got it home, I opened the hood and immediately noticed the color of the fluid in the reservoir was now clear instead of black. It never occurred to me that the color changed when the fluid goes south. For $110, I consider it money well spent.
I urge everyone to take a look at the fluid in your brake master cylinder and if it's dark or black, consider changing it out before you have a problem.
I also had them swap out the fuel filter as well.

Did that yesterday. Turned the rotors and pads and when we looked in the master cyclinder it was very dirty so we flushed it and added new. Adjusted everything and boy what a difference.
