How do your brakes look after 7500 miles

Just spent the last few days doing the MorRyde SRE 4000 and Titan Disk Brake upgrades. We have about 7500 miles on the house since buying it on 2/10/15. I am amazed at how bad the brakes look.

I knew they must have been greasy as they did not work very well but no idea they were this bad. This is the Left side. Right side rear looked the same. Right side front had a little shoe left.



Have not pulled it yet with the disks but I am sure they will make big difference.

Rick

That is incredible! 7500 miles is about what some vehicles go between oil changes these days. Do you think you had a controller hang up or do you just do that much down hill?

No, just inadequate for this size of RV.

After looking at those brakes and if you have Ron's Titan brakes installed . You better have your seat belt on when you hit that pedal

Wow, we have about 10K miles on our Redwood, inspected the brakes, bearings and seals a few weeks ago, all looked to be in pretty good condition.

And here are the plastic bushings.
Right side.


Left side


The worse one on each side was the rear leaf spring hanger.

Did you clean those bushings before the photos? If you didn't, they were probably never greased or were like mine & wouldn't take grease. The rear spring eye on mine were worn out also.

No I did not clean them. Only grease I found was on the brakes.

Thumbs down

I'm really glad you found this problem before it became a dangerous situation. With the bushings not showing any grease, all the warranty issues would in all likelyhood be denied due to lack of maintence.

This is just one more example of the POS bushings being used with disrespect of safety. Although its my understanding that that they've now upgraded their bushings on the new rigs, these should have never been used even on a pop up camper. Why did it take so long? The NTSB should have recalled these and Lippert sent to the dogs along with any company that allowed these to be used. VERY disappointing!
