Brakes

I have normal ABS brakes (non-air) on my 08 LaPalma. What is the costs when it comes down to replacing them?? Was recently told emergency brake wasn't working. Only has 50k original miles

Your parking / emergency brake will likely be on your driveshaft, and not your service brakes.

What chassis is your coach on ? Ford ? Or perhaps one of the last Workhorse chassis .

The emergency ( parking ) brake maybe drive shaft mounted and not part of the service brake package .

EDIT: I see Ben posted while I was typing , sorry about the duplication.

Yup, need to know what chassis.


And is it only the parking brake that needs work or service brakes as well.


And, if it hasn't been done in the last three years, you need to change the BRAKE FLUID! This is basic preventive maintenance on any hydraulic brake system.

Found out not parking brakes. I have a roadmaster frame. The mechanic didnt push eb pedal all the way down till it locked. but was told front brakes were bad. Showed me them and still looks like rust on rotors, says pads are not fully hitting rotors??? When I drove the 30 miles to shop no problems stopping, No odd sounds. I had not used rv in 3 months so i figured thats why. The rust doesnt look like surface rust but a stain rust mark. You dont see any friction marks.

Take it for a run and when safe to do, make some hard stops.

Don't have any loose objects that can fly off counters etc.

Brakes normally rust when they sit for awhile. I wouldn't worry about it unless you get pulsing when you press on the brake pedal. That said, don't leave the parking brake engaged if the coach is going to sit for a while, it may rust to the drum/rotor. If you're worried about the coach rolling block the wheels with a chunk of 4x4. Good luck.

Brakes as shown in the pictures NEED attention now. The braking surface is NOT 100 % but some much reduced level. Yes that is often a result of sitting idle . Most shops now replace rotors and drums rather than putting them on a brake lathe. A call to a local shop asking for a quote including rotors/drums /pads/ shoes ,misc parts and labor.
