Hi, we are new to this wonderful RV life.
We have a medium sized RV - 35' - diesel pusher.
I noticed while breaking on a mountain road going down a 6% grade that I smelled burnt break lining, but, I only pushed the break hard for a few seconds? Should I be using the engine break on most downhill grades? Or maybe I need a break job?

There is an often quoted trucker saying about going down hills:

I can go down a hill too slowly many times. I can only go down it too fast once.
