Brake locking up

I have a 1996 Gulfstream and have experienced break locking up while driving. What possible things might have caused it? I"ll appreciate any info about this.

I've never had it on a MH, but have seen it on motorcycles. Moisture in the brake fluid will expand when hot and lock them up. The cure is a change of brake fluid.

Old rubber brake hoses will lock up a brake caliper.
Something happens to the them and they won't let the fluid return to the master cylinder.
I had to replace them on our MH a year or so back. One of them was not letting the caliper release.

Glad you're aboard. Best of luck finding a solution to your brake problem. It would be helpful if you could tell us a little more about your RV. If you go under "User CP" in the tool bar above, scroll down to "Edit Signature" and type in the Make Model and length of your RV and the Engine Manufacture and model, it will appear every time you post. Once you typed that in don't forget to scroll to the bottom of the page and click the "Save" button. Enjoy your adventures and be safe.
