Coachman Mirada brake sound

Newbie with a 2015 Coachman Mirada 35BH... previous RV was a Sunseeker 3170.

Question is this... what type of braking system is on my unit? There is a "whine" when I hit the brake peddle. Even when the coach is not running the brake pedal makes a sound.. Cant find any documentation on this..

Thanks in advance

Does it make the sound when you are standing still and you press the brake pedal? If so its the pump that does the braking assist. In no then you have a problem.

It only makes the sound when using the brake. Even if the ignition is off and I step on the brake it makes a pump running sound.

That would be right, its a Ford F53 motor home? Look near your master cylinder under the hood, there should be a small round pump attached.

Thanks.

Sound threw me off. My 2014 Sunseeker with the Ford v10 didn't make any braking sounds and the steering didn't whine.

This Coachmen also has a whine to the steering in low speeds.

Just checking to make sure this is normal 😉

Coachman Mirada brake sound

Update: so checked the power steering fluid level and it was so low that even after adding 2 small bottles of power steering fluid it still is not registering on the dip stick. Though the whining sound has gone away. I guess back to the dealer this week. Don't they check these things during the PDI? This is a brand new coach with 750 miles on it.

I think you just answered your own question.
