I posted this also in the Fleetwood forum, NEED HELP!
1996 Pace Arrow Vision; F 53 Ford; 460 carb.
The day I bought my MH, when headed home after 100 miles I lost almost all the brakes. I was in slow stop and go traffic and I figured they just got hot. Stopped for dinner and let them cool, no improved results. Went to the nearest Ford dealer, to have them checked, they said it was a bad Master cylinder. Not in stock, has to be ordered. I still had some brakes so being only 125 miles from home and it was evening, I took a chance and came home.
Ordered the Master cylinder and had it replaced. I think they also replaced all the old brake fluid. Everything works fine. Since then we have made a couple of trips without any brake problems.
Having not used the MH for several months, I made a short run about 30 miles each way to fix a work problem. Everything OK. On the return trip I went about 1 mile to a stop sign and NO BRAKES! Pedal almost to the floor, but I still had the little brakes that I had on my very first trip. I had to get home so I took it very easy. Ten miles later, the stop light changed and I coasted before hitting the brakes. NOW I ONCE AGAIN HAVE FULL BRAKES. Tried it several more times and everything is OK.
Get almost home, again lost brakes.
What would be causing them to come and go?
