Just spent over $2000.00 on W22 brakes. Had caliper lockup in heavy trafic. This caused a brake fire. Suggest every one with brake troubles file a complaint with NHTSA. Hotline phone # (888) 327-4236 or visit WWW.safercar.gov. Something needs to be done before someone is killed.

So what year is your MH?
There was a recall on early W-20/22 that had the Bosch brakes.

Henry,

Tom is right about the recall on Bosch brakes I had a 2002 Adventure W-20 that had the recall performed. The process in short was inspect the brakes and replace anything that was badly corroded. All they did on mine was change the caliper glide pins not really the real problem. I have an acquaintance who works at an authorized Workhorse service center and he said that the brake issue on Workhorse is really costing owners alot of money. Workhorse has choosen not to stand behind this problem after the warranty period and recalled performed in almost every case.

I had the same problem last year on my way to the GNR. My 2003 Adventurer 33V had the right rear caliper lock up in heavy traffic. After having it towed to a Workhorse facility, the repair bill came to a little over $600. The tech said another 20 minutes and I would have warped the rotor.

Remember the Pinto

Remember the Bridgestone/firestone.

Hope I don't have to say remember the Motor Home.

We are just a handful of people who have reported brake issues. I wonder how many owners out there have had brake issues and never reported them?

You can read about my incident here Total Brake Failure

Any update on this? I was told the company would have parts ready to satisfy the recall in October. That didn't pan out - so does anyone have a new time line for us Workhorse Chassis owners?

I just wanted to know if you had received the December update Notice? If not perhaps you can review that notice which in posted in the stickies in the Workhorse Forum.

The brake solution has been developed and Bosch is tooling up for the campaign. Although I expect the recall to begin shortly, if you do have a problem or a brake failure your dealership should be able to assist you under the terms of the Interim Notice. It is I expect in the best interests of Workhorse and we owners to begin the campaign as soon as possible and they are working on it. The dealers are apparently ready to go so bring on the kits.
