Brake Pads

I have a 2008 Monaco Knight DP with 32000 miles and I would like to know when should I have new brake pads put on.
Thanks for the help.

If they are disc, they can be inspected with a flash light without taking a wheel off. If your a member of GS, CW should inspect it for free. You can DIY by crawling under your coach. If the disc brake pad is thinner than the steel plate it is glued to, you need to get your brakes done.

Our coach has 45k miles on it and the front brakes, the ones that do most of the work are only half worn down. I acknowledge we have a jake brake that does most of the work. If your coach is similarly equipped, not to worry.

Visual inspections are still necessary. Sometimes pistons stick and rotors get scored or glazed. Also want to inspect rubber brake lines for rubbing, abrasion and cracks. It is all a part of PMCS (Preventive Maintenance, Checks and Services.)
