One of the biggest issues right now is there are no part numbers on the caliper. Does anyone have this number?
Lucked out the trailing arm on mine was not a recalled one.
My 2001 Monaco Knight used the same brakes as a Ford F-650 (or F-550 I don't remember which) truck. I had one lock up and over heat. Found a number cast into the caliper housing. Did a Google on that number and it came up with the Ford F-650 (F-550). Went to the local Ford truck dealer with the old caliper and it was an exact match. Swapped it out and no more problem.
As I remember it, the piston was some kind of composite that expanded when hot and caused it to stick forcing the pads against the rotor making things even hotter. It's been some years ago.
