ABS & ATC light on

I just gotdone greasing the chassis on my 2006 Monaco Knight and now the ABS & ATC lights are on. I double checked to make sure I didnt disturb any wiring and I didnt. Could I have put too much grease and it got into the sensors? Other than the lights, the coach operates fine.

Check your sensors and make sure you didn't get hung up on the wires and back it away from the tone ring on the hub. Just push them back in.

Can I pull the sensors out and clean them without taking the drums off?

You should be able to slide the sensors all the way out without taking the drums off. When you grease any of the Zerks to do with the air brakes don't put more than three squirts of grease in them. If you put too much grease in the one for the cam you will get grease on the brake shoes. Not a good thing.

Hedgehog......Have you driven it and the lights stay on or did they come on immediately after lubing and before driving. If you haven't driven it, I would drive it first before I tried to clean or repair anything. It's not uncommon for them to come on occasionally. They should go off after a few miles.

As Bob said, the brake fittings only get a few shots. The first time I lubed mine, I greased the heck out of them and couldn't get the coach brakes to release afterwards without rocking the coach back and forth.

I might have put too much grease. I used a cordless grease gun at my friends garage. It was the first time using it and I wasnt used to it. If grease got in the drums, will they have to be disassembled or will it wear off?

Hedgehog.....I doubt you got grease in the drums. What it does is put too much pressure on the brakes. Mine were fine after I drove it.
