Our vin # is 5B4MP67G822348106 on our coach and I'm looking for some help. Several years ago the brake recall was accomplished and I asked them to check the rotors and pads and they said everything looked great. Four years ago we started having brake issues. All of the sudden the r/h front brake went bad with metal to metal. The front rotor and pads were replaced. They checked all other rotors and replaced the rear pads at the same time. . Then last year the rear brakes had a metal to metal issue. Both rear rotors, calipers and pads were replaced. This year we were in Indianapolis when approaching a intersection the brake pedal went to the floor. I started trouble shooting and went to the IRV-2 forum and several other people have had the same problem. The cause.... sticking calipers causing brake fluid to boil. I found evidence that's what happened to us.

I started the post looking for help..I'm done trusting my coach repair to someone else. I'm pulling the RV from storage next week and would like to know what are the best calipers that I can buy. Any help would certainly be appreciated.

Helloe again Kstateaddict. Sorry to read you are apparently STILL having brake troubles. When we last checked your "build sheet" in June 2018, it indicated that both of the recalls related to your chassis had been done. Specifically, recall 51101-C replaced all 4 calipers on 12/10/2010 @ 39,632 miles. IMO, that should have been the end of your troubles, but apparently yours is the exception to that, but I don't know why.
If those new calipers provided by the recall are "hanging up" and dragging your pads so badly as to quickly create a "metal to metal" condition, there is something very wrong. From your post of today, it seems you paid a shop in 2015 to replace at least some of those calipers installed by the recall, and it is those 2015 calipers that are now failing, right??? I'm confused.



But to answer your question about where you can now buy more calipers, I suggest you shop here: www.urvp.com They will use your vin # to assure you get the correct parts the first time, but please note the vin number you provided above is incorrect. The last 8 SHOULD be 23348106.
Goood luck getting to the bottom of your problem with new brake parts, but I think you should also be looking at other parts of the brake system, such as the hoses and the "bell crank" which connects the brake pedal to the master cylinder. Hoses and sticky bell cranks "could" be related to the calipers not releasing fully.

Sorry for the confusion. The rear calipers have been replaced since the recall not the front. something is causing the front calipers, on the r/h side to hang up. I'll check the other items you mentioned. Also, I've used the supplier you mentioned and they have a good reputation . Again, thanks for your quick response.
