    Front wheel disc brake sticking........hmmm!

    Took the wheel off but can't find any bolts that hold the calliper on.........anyone know?

    It's a Chevy chassis by the way :)

    Cheers in advance

    why would you want to stick a caliper on your willy surely a rule or tape measure would do the same job, Oops Winnie, must get new glasses, hee hee.
    Been parked up in one place too long Boo the wheel cyl's are seized.

    I had the same problem with several RVs in the past due mainly to lack of use. It was ALWAYS the rubber flexi pipe that had separated on the inside. They are made up from an outer and inner pipe and will allow fluid through when you press the peddle but wont allow it to release when you take your foot off.

    come to think of it Dave I had one the same on my FG360. So a simplish fix just remove the hose and it should release, time to change all of the hoses then.

    Emailed them, they sent me to workhorse website where I put in my VIN number, mine isn't on their recall list ;/

    I've searched uTube about removal but they all seem to show 4x4's or chevy pickups.

    HERE is the official Workhorse Brake thread where as promised, I posted the announcement when it came out. [​IMG]

    Over 47,000 2001-2006 MY Workhorse W-20 and W-22 chassis are affected. Workhorse will send out notices later this year for the affected models. Please have your current information on the WORKHORSE.COM site under "my motorhome", and they will first post it there if you are affected.

    PS. W16 and W18 models are not affected.
