Brake Recall

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.

If it’s a Workhorse chassis - send Ed Gray on IRV2 a PM and give him your VIN#. He can get you both a build sheet for your chassis and tell you what recalls have been implemented if there are any.

You will need to locate an ex-Workhorse service center/Navistar service center and they can implement the recall.
Had our coach done about a year ago.

We had the same thing happen to us, losing our brakes. The Brake repair place can look it up if the recall was done on your rig. I will bet it wasn't done.

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).

Yup, with a 17 year old brake system, MAINTENANCE (brake fluid changes/ condition of flex hoses) would be the first question!
