I am having the same over heating problems (it seem) as everyone else. Does this problem only happen on the w chassic? I have a P32 Chassic with the same problem. It is presently at a workhorse dealer and has been there for 4 weeks now and they can't seem to find the problem.

First, welcome to IRV2 and congrats on your first post.

The overheating problem involved the Bosch ZOPS brakes used on the W chassis, so I doubt if your P chassis is affected. However, any disc brake system cab have a sticky slide mechanism in the caliper assembly due to the grit and grime that accumulates there. It is a common problem on many Fords too, for example.

I've added a shortcut to the Workhorse forum to get you more feedback from other Workhorse owners.

I've been on 3 EXTREMELY steep passes, and NEVER a problem with my breaks, though, I start slow, and stay slow.

I've been in the Smokey's, in and out of Death Valley, across Donner pass and all points in between these places and south Louisiana with no problems.

I've been within 100 miles of my house on flat ground and had locking calipers on 3 occasions in the past 2 yrs. even after brake fluid change and full brake maintenance.

No rhyme or reasons to this problem.
