The coach has 31K miles. The brakes are Meritor.
Unfortunately the previous owner only cared about the appearance and was really negligent when it came to maintenance. The interior and exterior are immaculate, but the mechanical has been neglected.
I have been in the process of greasing, lubing, cleaning, filling everything according to specs. I know from help on this board there is a specific procedure for greasing the calipers especially using clay-based grease. I believe that it is possible someone wrongly greased the calipers and that could have made them overheat which could have caused the heat checking. The front rotors are not heat checked.
From what I can see from underneath the coach, the pads on the disks and the shoes on the tags look as though they are still okay. I will be pulling all the wheels next week to do a thorough inspection. I also saw a small amount of oil seep on the tag axle seal so I will change that also.
It actually really makes me surprised and somewhat angry that someone could pay what we pay for these rigs and then not maintain them properly.
Anyway, it would be nice to know what is allowable and what is not when it comes to heat-checking. I have a feeling that I might have to replace them.
I will post a picture to see what others think.
