    I have a 99 Alpine. Great coach, except when there is no warning of total brake failure. This has happened twice. When it does, it is not necessary to stop at Walgeen's for Exlax. The problem seems to be failure within the wheel sensors of the ABS system. It is my understanding, if there is a sensor failure, a valve closes off the fluid to the wheel, it then flows through the remainder of the system. But I do not understand is why I do not have brakes on the other remaining 3 positions... My main wiring harness is unpluged, thereby disabeling the entire system and I have normal brakes. The first time was a brake light switch failure, and lost my brakes with a dinghy that does not have a brake system, in the SW Pa mountains. At 73 years old my hair was already white, I really did not need this experience. It is a Wabco-Merritor system, with Bosh hydralic disc brakes. any ideas??
