Let Good Sam Extended Service Plan Pay Your RV Repair Bill

My Motorhome Brakes are Mushy

by Steve
(Bokeelia Fl)

1993 Allegro Bay, brake pads are very good, bled brakes - no air push on the pedal and brakes are mushy, wet around the master cylinder,do not know how these brakes work, where could the leak be?

ANSWER: Hi Steve thanks for submitting your question on our Ask An RV Question Page.

Based on your description I am pretty sure that the problem is your motorhomes Master Cylinder.

I am going to assume that you have double-checked all of the brake bleeder valves to make sure that they are closed tightly and not seeping brake fluid. I am also going to assume that you have also checked all of the brake lines for signs of damage and for signs of leaks and also verified that all of the connections to the Master Cylinder are tight.

The mushiness in the brake pedal is one of the signs of a failing Master Cylinder. Some of the other signs are the brake pedal slowly going to the floor when the brakes are held on. Having to "pump up" the brakes before stopping is also a symptom. The signs of moisture around the Master Cylinder is also another symptom.

I hope this helps
