From my experience this past Memorial Day weekend I would inspect and lube annually. I lost my coach due to a wheel fire which was attributed to either a wheel bearing problem or a sticking brake caliper so now I would do this more regularly then the manual specifies to play it safe.

Generally you would remove the tire, unbolt the guide pins, clean them, check them for wear/corrosion/galling, get new ones if they don' pass inspection, coat them with silicone brake grease and then bolt them back in place. Also clean and lightly lube, with the same silicone brake grease, all the machined ways that the caliper slides on while you are there.

Other can chip in with more exact specs and W22 specific details. I may be leaning towards overkill but once bitten twice shy.

LOGTHUMPER: There is nothing that I can find in the current Chassis Guide. However, in section 4 (service information) of the owner's manual there is this: " NOTICE Lubricate the brake caliper slides if your vehicle is in storage for periods of six months or longer" That is all there is about caliper pin slide lubrication. Apparently, if you use your vehicle regularly, the caliper slide pins will be kept clean and corrosion free.

Hopefully, an experienced brake "expert" can shed some additional light on your question. ED

NeilV hit the procedure right on the head!

The tires have to come off so the slide pins and calipers can be removed in order to lubricate everything properly.

Restoring the slide pins make sure they are torqued properly. Restoring the tires to the axles - make sure you bring a tool big enough to do 450 ft/lbs of torque.

Ed Gray made a very sage comment in that if you run your motorhome routinely things that may stick or get stuck don't get that way. I have 55K plus miles and I haven't had my slides or pins serviced but I'm considering doing it as a preventative measure in May.
