Travers St. Louis RV / Camper Brake Pad Replacement & Inspection
Recreational Vehicles are engineered with a brake system that slows them down when you need. Whether you want to slow your RV / Camper down on the interstate or stop it immediately to avoid a collision, the brake pads are the link between your brake caliper and brake rotor that transfers stopping force to stop your RV / Camper . The limitation of RV / Camper Brake Pads is that they are made from a composite material that wears down incrementally with every slowdown. Brake Pads do a tough job and are quite durable, but they will eventually wear down to the point that you can have metal on metal grinding when you press the brake pedal. If the brake pads get that bad, you will start to experience warning signs of poor stopping power & safety.
Signs of a Brake Pad Problem
- You can hear an unusual grinding or squealing sound when pressing the brake pedal
- The vehicle has a longer stopping distance than before
- Feel a pulsation in the brake pedal
- Must press the brake pedal farther down to stop the vehicle
- Brake pedal feels harder than normal
