Is you Google rusted brake lines you will find out that it happens every where and not just on your Georgetown. Not sure what you want to hear from us. If the line failed you still would still have brakes on the other axles as they have dual lines and not all the brakes are effected.
Yours is the first I have ever read here and I have been on this forum for many years.
Have you contacted Ford yet? Have they offered to replace the brake line?


Please update us on what you have done so far.


Try this link and see all the pictures of rusted brake lines.

Here is another thread where the exact same thing happened on a 2011 model only a little over two years old. In response to your question "not sure what you want to hear from us" = nothing. I just want to put it out there that there is a serious safety issue and that folks should routinely have their brake lines inspected. Over the time I've owned my unit (bought it new) I routinely take it in for service and always ask what else I should be doing at that age/# of miles. No one ever mentioned inspecting the brake lines.


Corroded brake lines

Here is the direct video on YouTube

I also found this in the F-53 Ford Chassis Owners manual.


I had mine done at Ford at 23,000 miles and now have almost 42,000 miles and probably will have it done again as you said you have to depend upon your brakes to stop the our tank.

Glad you are OK. As Iggy suggested take it to your Ford dealer. Ford carries the warranty on the truck portion of the RV. Not sure where you have been taking it for service.

I had the brake fluid changed after 2 years at Gator Ford in Tampa. They are located next door to Lazy Days, and service lots of Ford motorhome chassis. The technician opened the bleeders at each wheel and connected a pump machine to the brake reservoir. After sucking out the old brake fluid, the process was reversed and new fluid added. The entire job took a little over an hour and cost $180. Cheap insurance...

This is the only way to do it.
Power flush by Ford. No mistakes. Mine cost me $186 but also I had the transmission flushed and refilled for $100 more. $286 at 23,000 miles
You have to take care of your baby!

X2! You may not have driven in the snow, but the chassis could have been while on the way to the factory!
