Hopefully someone will be able to help you. Most people peruse these forums in the evening and early morning though.

If you still have brake fluid then it might be your Hydroboost.
If your warranty is over it's going to be a little pricey.

Try calling a Ford truck dealer on the west coast (Google which ones are still open) and ask to speak to a technician. You'll need your VIN number. Why west coast? Because they are 3 hrs behind. But hurry...some may close at 7 but some probably close at 6.

Sounds like you have lost your 12V system. I had this happen once and I had blown the positive post terminal in my battery. It was internal and the battery appeared normal.

PROBLEM SOLVED,...$$$$$

RV towed 60 miles to Ford Repair shop. We spent 2 nights in motel...which was ok...originally we were told maybe 3 weeks.

BRAKE LINE WAS CORRODED ON THE INSIDE OF A SEALED SYSTEM.
TECH SAID...RARE BUT CAN HAPPEN. CAUSED BY STORAGE FOR LONG PERIODS,,,DRIVEN FOR A WHILE THEN PARKED AGAIN.

THE STRAW....WE THOUGHT / KNEW WE HAD 5 year / 60,000 mile ...so, was not fretting too much. All fixed and ready to go....tech says no WARRENTY...

Sparks fly... (Me)...called THE FORD MTR CO ABOUT WARRENTY.

WE PURCHASED RV IN 2012. Rv dealership good possession in 2011.
It was the dealer responsibility to complete Ford MTR paperwork . Showing mileage, buyers name , date and mileage... Submit to them...therefore causing the Warrenty to be in our name.

After a lot of phone calls...and not done yet...I think it can be solved...but after a bunch of paperwork. Most has to be completed my me...ugh, not my problem. Therefore there is a lot of discussions with dealer...who never takes responsibility for a splinter. ‼️
