Sure would have been nice to get mine changed at the campground. Will need a bucket of coffee for the 7AM conversion tomorrow in Elkhart so will be pulling out of site #66 in the morning by 6 AM. Hope to return by early afternoon. A lawn chair and rally sign will mark my site.

Comment aside, hats off to Titan Guy for making the arrangements for me on such short notice. My original brakes are really scarey. I use the truck's tow mode for slowing down followed by braking and pray there isn't an emergency in front of me. Hopefully the new Titan disk brakes will reduce the scare factor.

The grease seals must have been blown by the folks that maintain my RW. I pulled the bearing caps and found at least a hand full of grease at the outside bearing. Imagine what must be inside the brake housings!!

Now if only I could pick up a tire pressure monitoring system before the trip home next week. That is another worry that accelerates my graying hair!

Bob, you will love the disc brakes. Entire rig brakes like the truck alone.
Make sure you go into the truck apps and rest the controller to electric/hydraulic.

Stop in anytime and I'll have. Set of light switch labels for you.

With the exhaust brake, tow haul mode, & new non greasy brakes in the RW I don't have any trouble stopping. The disc would sure be nice & so would the Mor Ryde IS, but my ship hasn't came in yet.
