Is this an air brake equipped coach ?

I'm thinking it is but need to be sure .

Can you describe your problem ?

We're not there beside you; seeing what you can see; you have to tell us everything , , chassis manufacturer , engine manufacturer?

Your " about me " lists a different coach , did you just get this one.

The 2000 Patriot Thunder has a driveshaft mounted parking brake. Sort of a car-like "brake rotor and caliper". There is a known problem with this setup which causes the brake lining to wear out.

Normally parking brake lining doesn't wear out as the wheel (driveshaft in this case) is not turning when the pk brake is applied. But a dragging/sticking caliper can cause pressure on the lining while driving which wears out the lining.

I have a write up on this on my "Known Problems" section (page 14). The (top) link in in my signature line below.

So the fix is to remove that Beaver setup and switch over to a "Wabco Microbrake lock".

Forgive my ignorance ...is this due to having hydraulic or air over hyd. brakes on these chassis.
