I recently purchased a 2005 Fleetwood Pace Arrow that has been sitting. I installed new tires had it serviced and checked over. I was out driving this weekend and an hour into the drive I lost all brakes, I was lucky that I was only doing 35mph and coasted to a stop. I checked the outside and brakes and all the calipers where leaking and smoking, I later discovered an open recall about this but my motorhome is stranded. How do i determine if this part of the brake recall and will they tow it to a repair facility to be fixed. Thanks for the help as I'm new to the RV world I've always had a travel trailers.

I will add that even if the brake recall has been performed then lack of maintenance of the brake system will cause similar issues.
Unless this coach is driven monthly so as to exercise the brakes, the fluid will start absorbing water which will then start causing internal corrosion of the steel and aluminum parts in contact with those metals which then fouls the tight tolerance moving components of the brake hydraulics.
This is why the brakes need to be bled on average once every 2 years. Read up on “brake fluid change for motorhomes and rv’s).
