Really not a complicated procedure, but it does require removing all the wheels. Several of us have had ABS light issues over the years. Ours has all new wheel speed sensors but the light still comes on occasionally (usually after rain) indicating speed sensor read out of range. The sensors are readily available for about $25ea btw....
Hope it checks out good mechanically. Best of luck.
Thanks for the info on the sensors. Especially the price and normal availability.

The brakes did behave well during the test drive. They felt how I would have expected.

Mike,


Yes, we sold it. Probably our best coach in our 1/4 million DP miles in the U.S, Canada and Mexico.


But time marches on as we move up in years. We are not currently motorhoming and have moved to Ft Myers FL.


BTW, had an interesting "fly by" this morning By M (we are on the 19th floor looking out on the Caloosahatchee River):

From our condo, the nest is 2.99 NM @ 12.5 degrees (ya, old sailors as well).

Thanks for the response Brett. Sorry to hear you sold it but happy to hear you ended on a high note with a great coach.
