The recall is Workhorse rather than Cummings. We had 43,000 plus miles on ours and had driven in around 44 states including some pretty grades in the Rockies. After that, we had two total brake failures in 800 miles. The second total brake failure was on the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina and could have easily resulted in my families death. The symptom is the brakes go all the way to the floor and do not work at all. Sensors and pins heat up, melt and the fluid leaks out. This isnít a simple recall like on a wiper blade, this is something that caused me to be trembling an hour after it happened. Had I not pulled into a fortunate overlook, we would have been killed for sure. My wife is still very uncomfortable riding in the motor home. The new calipers are not really untested, they just have the pins made out of a nonmeltable material. Bosh makes millions of other brakes. The reason they didnít work well on a RV is that if you donít use it for an extended period of time the rotors develop rust and that causes heat buildup when you use it. The ďextended timeĒ for rust is determined by moisture and environmental factors. The actual repair takes a couple of hours and if you canít get them fixed before you leave, strongly consider getting them fixed along the way. If I were you I would avoid any mountains and drive very defensively. If your brake in a car go out, you can use the emergency brake. In most RVís , the emergency brake is a drive shaft griper. If your 24,000 pounds starts going down hill with no brakes, you are in deep trouble. If you have an accident and the attorney for the deceased folks brings up the repaired brakes were available, by you chose to not put them on right away, your position is going to be very bad.

Workhorse did not do the recall until they had 200,000 calipers available. Thatís 50,000 motor homes.,
Myrtle Beach is the home base of one of the moderators at IR2 Workhorse forum and he had his repaired there. Be Safe
