New airbrake pedal vs Old airbrake pedal

Just wondering if anybody likes the old style airbrake pedal. I just traded MH and my 2005 has the new style, I don't get the same feel with the newer style and wondered why the change?

I'm not sure what you mean by old style vrs new style.

Can you be a little more specific?

I know what you mean, early models pivot from the bottom and newer one pivot from the top. By the end of summer, you will have forgotten about the old one.

5 years ago I bought a Smart Car for a toad. Guess what? The brake pedal pivots from the floor. I thought that it was a really strange feeling. Now, it never enters my mind.

Same thing when I upgraded coaches. At first, it is very different than the previous one, but as time goes on, it all falls into place.

The old style wasn`t adjustable, the new style is --When you adjust the brake, you also adjust the fuel pedal -- I`ve changed adjustments by accident when dusting the dash, & next time driving all feels different -- I don`t like the setup because the brake & fuel pedals are to close togeather -- I never use the cruise control, so pedal placement is an issue for me -- Billy Paul Willard
