Brakes

I am just curious, not having any issues at this time. Planning for the expense when I do need to have them done.

I have about 15,000 miles on the coach.

Based on my research, air brakes should last between 100k - 200k depending on the driver.

My Berk has 36k on it & when I took it in for service this spring to FL, the mechanic said that at the rate of brake wear on my coach & the miles driven, I should be good for another 25 yrs or so.

I don't plan on having the coach that long but he also said that he'd never had to replace the air brakes on a RV in the 27yrs he's worked for FL.

Check with your mechanic the next time you gt your coach serviced.

I would think that unless something happens to them like overheating or oil saturation from a leaking wheel seal, they will last many many years. We have 22,000 miles and not the slightest wear noted yet, just checked.

Variables such as what you tow, mountain driving, driver technique etc are all a factor. But, 100k would be reasonable to expect. Just keep up the maintenance as scheduled.
