The brakes should not stick and applying power should not be the reason that they stop sticking. When was the last time the brakes were serviced? If it were me, I would go straight to a reputable repair shop and get them checked. Sounds unsafe!

Even though you own a Ford, go ahead and check the Workhorse Custom Chassis part of this forum. There is lots of discussion regarding brakes on motorhomes. Lots of ideas too!

Ford is notorious for having that very brake issue on that vitage of chassis. I think it had something to do with the factory calipers binding. My 97 had the same issue and I could not get it right until the calipers were replaced. They fit a little "looser" and I had no more issues.

It's usually caused by the caliper binding on the slider. Remove caliper, clean up rust / dirt on slider and bracket. Reassemble using lithium caliper slide lube.

I'll second that but would go with the silicone high temp caliper lube. Do it before they get galled and rough or you may end up replacing the calipers and mounts instead of just cleaning and lubing them.

On my previous motorhome (96 model F-53 chassis), I had trouble with the pistons sticking in the calipers. Rebuilt calipers solved the problem. So, check all of the caliper, not just the slides.....Fred
