Brake Pedal

I have a 2014 FR3 25DS. Need to know if this is normal or is it something I need to take care of. When ever I hit a bump in the road the brake pedal rattles like it is about to fall off. I check the pivot bolt that hold the pedal arm on and it is tight. I can take the brake pedal arm and move it side to side a little which is causing it to rattle. Any suggestions? Thanks for you input.

Our 2014 30DS is solid. Definitely not normal. Wish I had an answer for you. Are you able to look up under the dash to see if anything is loose? Or check in the engine compartment and have someone move the pedal from the inside. Sounds like a call to a Ford HD dealer may be in order.
Would be interested to know what you find out.

Thanks, I will be taking the lower dash panel off so I can get a better look at the pivot point. I am thinking, all I need is a spacer on the bolt in between the hub and pivot. Will know more tomorrow after a better look.

I think the 2014 Ford F53 motor home chassis' have a 3 year bumper to bumper warranty and 5 year power train. Might be wise to get on the horn with Ford and check your VIN to see if they will take care of your issue. You might just get in under the wire.

Same as Drivem. I have a 2914 and the brake pedal does not do that. Yet! Sorry.
