    What seems to be the problem?
    Not much to go wrong with the arm,
    The spring con come adrift or the valve siezes sometimes

    Makes little odds on the average MH - the vehicle is close to fully loaded all the time so the brake proportioning valve will be fully open. If it isn't leaking it's probably a bit irrelevant.

    The valve with the arm affects both sides equally - it's designed to vary the front / rear brake balance depending on vehicle load. If only one rear brake is down (I'm assuming footbrake) it's likely to be a leaking or seized wheel cylinder.
