Over New Years I went to Silver River for a few days, on the way up while going through Wildwood on Rt. 301 I noticed a problem when braking. So I pulled into a shopping center and took my temp gun and checked the temp on all the wheels and found the left front to be over 500 degrees. Rest was fine. This is the same wheel that has caused problems before. I let it set for about 15 minutes and then proceeded on my way without any other problems. Also returned home with any other problems. A little over a year ago Workhorse replaced the rear calipers , ABS sensors, Seals and also lubed all the caliper pins both front and rear. At the same time the brake fluid was flushed and new installed by the dealer. So I am inclined to beleive all their problems must be in the calipers, What is strange why after setting for a few minutes are you able to continue on your trip. I sure wish Workhorse would do the right thing and replace my front calipers also and I then think my problems would be over. I also noticed that the left front rotor was very black from being hot.

Uncle Sam, We have a brake thread going at the present time, I'm sure you'll find it on the first page. Please post your commentary in that thread.

Sorry for your trouble however your assertion is correct I believe. When you cool the caliper, most often and if it isn't totally damaged, the piston pressure will release and relieve the tension on the brake pad. This has been my experience as well.

(just cut and copy it)

I am going to lock this thread down.
